Beautiful views of Nyack and the Tappan Zee Bridge in the Hudson Valley, New York

Hudson Valley, New York is an underrated area in the southern part of the state. Located less than an hour outside of New York City, there is so much to enjoy in the Hudson Valley ranging from amazing hiking trails to renowned wineries and wonderful restaurants to quaint downtown areas.

For those of you who know me well, you know that I am from Northern New Jersey, just outside of the Hudson Valley. Even though I enjoy traveling all over the world, I also love exploring my local area.

Experience the Best of New York's Hudson Valley with The Time Hotel

Getting to Hudson Valley, New York:

The Tappan Zee Bridge at night in the Hudson Valley, New York

Like I mention above, the start of the Hudson Valley is located less than an hour north of New York City. The biggest cities to stay in are Nyack, Newburgh, Warwick, Poughkeepsie and Monroe/Woodbury. To get to this area, you could either fly into Newark Airport, John F. Kennedy Airport, Laguardia Airport, Westchester County White Plains Airport or New York Stewart Airport in Newburgh/New Windsor.

Even though there are public transportation options such as the train and bus, it is best that you rent a car if you are traveling around this area of New York.

Staying at The Time Hotel in Nyack:

During the month of March 2019, I didn’t have major international travel plans and switched my focus to exploring my local area. On a Thursday night, after a rather long and draining week, I remember checking into The Time hotel in Nyack, New York for a well-needed staycation and a local boutique experience.

I absolutely fell in LOVE with this trendy chic hotel and am definitely looking forward to spending some fun evenings at The Time this summer. Not only is The Time located a few hops from the Hudson River in Nyack, NY, they also have a property a few hops from the river in Midtown, New York City. As the only upscale, boutique hotel with loft-style accommodations in Rockland County, New York, The Time was once a factory warehouse that was transformed into a place for creative souls and business travelers alike.

The Time Hotel:

The beautiful entrance way to The Time Hotel room

Situated right off of the New York Thruway in Nyack, New York, The Time is super close to some pretty awesome and convenient places. New York City is located around 45 minutes from the hotel; it is a short walk from downtown Nyack where there are cute boutique shops, restaurants, cafés and fitness studios; it is super close to the Tappan Zee Bridge that takes you into Westchester County; you could enjoy premium shopping only 20 minutes away at Woodbury Common and there are nearby towns with amazing eateries.

The lobby at New York's The Time Hotel

Throughout the hotel are lounge areas, meeting rooms and gorgeous artwork that you will be admiring for days. As a boutique travel blogger who loves all things dreamy, The Time in Nyack had me feeling so joyful with its urban lights.

Not only does The Time offer accommodations for people to have a good night’s sleep, they also have a fitness room so that travelers could stay in shape during their visit. There is also an awesome seasonal pool and hot tub that is open from Memorial Day Weekend in late May through Labor Day Weekend in early September. The hotel wanted to provide a Hampton vibe to their guests, so there are cute lounge chairs, umbrellas and an outdoor bar to sip refreshing beverages.

Beautiful furniture at The Time Hotel

The Time also offers complimentary parking, which is really convenient! They are also pet friendly as well, so you don’t have to leave your furry friend behind.

Rooms at The Time Hotel:

During my stay at The Time, I was placed in their Balcony King room. I absolutely ADORED this room and found it to be so beautiful, cozy and decorative. It really gave me such a happy feeling staying in this room. I also had an amazing night’s sleep because the king bed was unbelievably comfortable!

The beautiful hotel rooms in Nyack, New York

The Balcony King room featured decorative wallpaper, cutting-edge furniture, beautiful chandeliers, a bed that lit up, dark wood floors and a beautiful carpet that was underneath the bed. Because the room was loft-style, there were 11-foot ceilings and large windows! In addition, there was also an outdoor balcony that had gorgeous views of the Hudson River, Tappan Zee Bridge (which was so cool to see at night) and downtown Nyack.

What is awesome about The Time’s rooms are that they are mobility accessible with roll-in showers. They also offer hearing accessible rooms with visual alarms and notification devices for the doors and phone. I love hotels that make things easy for every individual.

In addition, there is WiFi, luxury linens, a mini refrigerator, safe, Keurig coffee and tea maker, a flat screen TV, work desk, radio alarm clock, a fancy lounge chair with a jeweled ottoman, custom bath amenities, a phone, iron and ironing board upon request and a hairdryer. I also loved how clean and spacious the bathroom was.

Besides the Balcony King room, there is a Loft King room, Loft Double room, Junior Suite, Balcony Suite, and a Timeless Suite.

Eating at The Time Hotel:

One of the best parts of staying at The Time was having everything you need right inside the hotel. My mom met up with me the night I stayed at The Time and we enjoyed dinner and drinks at BV’s Grill that offers a seasonal dining experience.

This vibrant steakhouse not only has a dreamy indoor space, they also have a fun outdoor patio that features stringed lights and a bustling atmosphere. As the first cousin to the famous Bobby Van’s Steakhouse, BV’s Grill offers delicious steaks and seafood as well as pasta dishes for lunch and dinner. My mom and I both had red wine and we also savored amazing dishes. I had linguine with shrimp, calamari and crabmeat and my mom had Chilean sea bass on top of mashed potatoes. For dessert, we shared a flourless chocolate cake with mint chocolate chip ice cream on the side. Everything was to die for! I know I will be coming here often since it is so close to my home.

BV’s Grill is made up of three sections: there is the restaurant area, the bar and also a lounge. In addition, they also have a great selection of wines.

In addition to the amazing food options at BV’s Grill, The Time also offers a complimentary continental breakfast as well as a regular à la carte breakfast for an additional cost. I was super thankful that The Time provided me with an à la carte breakfast, so I ordered room service and enjoyed a Belgian waffle with fresh strawberries and bacon in my hotel room (because I honestly didn’t want to leave my hotel room). Even though I am normally not a room service person, I definitely enjoyed having this breakfast in my gorgeous room!

  • Spend the day at Bear Mountain:
    • Whether you want to go on a hike, enjoy the zoo, ice skate in the winter, or enjoy the annual Oktoberfest event, there is so much to do at Bear Mountain State Park. (There is also a great Oktoberfest event at Krucker’s in Pomona, New York. Overall, the Bear Mountain event is more affordable, but the one at Krucker’s is less crowded and more authentic.)

Shopping at Woodbury Common

  • Have fun shopping:
    • Shopping is always a good idea! Woodbury Common Premium Outlets offer designer shopping and dining experiences for all to enjoy. These outdoor stores offer gorgeous mountain views to add to the experience.

*BONUS – The New York Renaissance Faire

In addition to all of the amazing wineries, restaurants, fitness studios, hiking trails and more, the Hudson Valley also hosts the New York Renaissance Faire in Tuxedo, NY’s Sterling Forest during mid August through early October. The Faire brings you back to Elizabethan England and is set in a beautiful 16th Century English village.

Most people who attend the Renaissance Faire will dress up, but you don’t have to wear a costume if you don’t want to. At The Faire, you could indulge in delicious savory foods like chicken drumsticks and sweet treats such as waffles a la mode along with cookies and donuts. You could also get Mexican food, falafel, Thai cuisine, German meals, vegan eats and so much more at this fun event. The Renaissance Faire also has rides, arcade games, live shows, magicians, Shakespeare themed attractions, fortune tellers, psychics, tarot card readers and more. Overall, The Faire is fun for all ages!
