The Refinery




Imagine New York, but even more exciting—well, it happens in the weeks before Christmas, when the city is at its glittering best. And now, just in time, we have a new designer hotel in the heart of Manhattan, and exceptionally good Club rates




Just a stroll down the Holiday Walk—the Christmas-light nativity displays in the windows of the fabled stores on Fifth Avenue—will put anybody in festive mood. And now we have a new and rather special New York hotel which our travel experts recommend—new literally, since it opened last autumn to great acclaim, becoming one of Trip Advisor's Top 10 new openings worldwide. And becausewe are coming up to the best time to see New York at its glittering, razzmatazz best, just as the shops are dressing for Fall and Christmas, our special arrangement gives Members an excellent opportunity to stay at a fantastic rate for a smart hotel in the heart of Manhattan—and there are super flight deals too.

What makes The Refinery special? For starters, a great location in the heart of Manhattan's Fashion District, a block from Fifth Avenue and minutes from Times Square, the Theater District, Rockefeller Plaza and Bryant Park. Also the fact that as an independently-owned boutique hotel—just 13 storeys high in a single building—you feel like a welcome guest, not a cipher. And the inspirational design—a reincarnation of its history as the Colony Arcade Building of 1912, created by New York architect Frederick C Zobol, gives the hotel a singularly artistic sense of style and place.

Then there are the views of the nearby Empire State Building from the 3,500sq ft rooftop terrace, and the airy, larger-than-average-size bedrooms with 12ft high ceilings, oak floors, and windows which actually open so you can have some air (as well as the air-conditioning and heating of course). Plus great New York food and drink in this upscale Midtown Manhattan neighbourhood, as well as in the Refinery restaurant, Parker & Quinn, which also offers live jazz in Winnie’s Bar (and tea with whisky, with a nod to Prohibition), as well as the genuinely friendly and professional quality of the service. This is a really super opportunity for our Club Members to stay here as VIP guests at especially reasonable rates, either for pleasure or on business.

When to go

Any time: our special Club rates are year round. Pre-Christmas is excellent for many reasons. Buying gifts in the US can anyway save you up to 60% on UK prices—and on Black Friday, the first Friday after Thanksgiving (November 29 this year) stores reduce their prices by up to 50%. But of course this fabulous city is about much more than shopping, it is about art, theatre, food and drink, music, dance and round-the-clock entertainment, New York style—not for nothing is it called 'the city that never sleeps'.

November's extra New York attractions include Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade along Central West Park and Broadway, the Christmas Tree Lighting at Rockefeller Center (with free ice-skating shows), the Grand Central Laser Light Show, Radio City Christmas Spectacular. In December, see Handel’s Messiah in Harlem’s Gothic cathedral, the New York Armory Antiques Show, the Riverside Candlelight Carol Festival, the Vienna Boys’ Choir in Concert, followed of course by the New Year’s Eve fireworks in Times Square and the January sales.
