Reception at Hotel Tivoli, Dutchess County, New York, USA

Tivoli, New York, USA


From locally sourced, Mediterranean-inspired food to a friendly team beaming with smiles, Hotel Tivoli has a lot to offer. Add to that the location of the small-but-mighty hotel on Broadway, surrounded by art galleries and ice cream parlours, plus some seriously eclectic interiors, and you’ve found yourself a fabulous place to stay in Dutchess County.

Teeny-weeny Tivoli at Dutchess County’s north edge has more sophistication than a lot of style-forward cities. And nowhere is that more evident than at Hotel Tivoli, a three-storey villa dating from 1910 lovingly converted into a cute, quirky boutique hotel with art and designer-homeware gallery.

The studiedly simple and spacious property is an interiors fetishist’s dream, its generous rooms’ white-painted walls sparingly offset by perkily coloured individual pieces sourced anywhere from a souk in Marrakesh to a Manhattan design studio by owners Brice (recently RIP) and Helen Marden, themselves artists with celebrated careers in New York City.

Each ensuite guestroom is spatially unique too, some with dormer windows, others with dual aspects beaming in cute views of quaintly groovy streetscapes and trees laden with cherry blossom in spring. One of these, Room 2, was occupied by former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright when she swung by for Chelsea Clinton’s 2010 wedding in nearby Rhinebeck.

Communal areas showcase an evolving selection of artwork: contemporary American photography, painting and sculpture, complementing an eccentric, broadly Mid-century collection of one-off furniture pieces, whose vibes are echoed in judiciously curated ceramics, glassware and textiles sold in the on-site Corner Store.

The highly rated Corner restaurant, meanwhile, features a stunning central bar in dramatically fuchsia- and purple-veined marble, and a kitsch-beautiful Mid-century Sputnik Murano-glass light Brice found in nearby Hudson. Oh, and like the simple, farm-to-table breakfasts (big up the next-level home-made granola), the locally sourced, Mediterranean-inspired food’s great too.

There’s plenty to do around Hotel Tivoli, but there’s perhaps no better way to start a day than to grab a coffee to go and head out for a leisurely, 15-minute stroll down to the Hudson River. Alternatively, head here during the sunset, when the river sparkles in a golden light. Pure bliss.
