Heading to New York’s Hudson Valley? The Time Nyack offers a unique lodging experience. If you’re looking for a classic, luxury hotel experience with service that pays attention to even the smallest details, this may not be the right property for you. But if you love a whimsical vibe and a hip, modern feel that brings a sense of youthful fun to your experience, then The Time Nyack might just be what you’re looking for. Many thanks to The Time Nyack for hosting us.
The Time Nyack is in an excellent location
Just an hour’s drive from Manhattan, the Time Nyack is situated on the edge of the Hudson Valley, making it a prime hub for exploring the valley and maybe a day trip into the city.
The former factory warehouse – the only upscale hotel in the county – sits on High Street in the town (village, officially) of Nyack practically in the heart of the town. From the hotel entrance, visitors can find wonderful dining and entertainment options while enjoying the streets that were practically made for walking.
Family-friendly room setup at The Time Nyack
We stayed in the family junior suite on our trip. The living room had two bunk beds and its own bathroom, while the master bedroom had a king size bed and en-suite bathroom.
The girls loved the bunk beds in the living room as well as the hipster goth decor. our room had a skull motif, and the girls loved finding hidden skulls in the decor (like the oriental rug).
One note here is that our bathrooms only had showers. The absence of tubs might make parents with small children want to book different rooms.
Is The Time Nyack suitable for kids?
I would say The Time Nyack falls squarely in the realm of “sort of” when it comes to kid-friendliness. While not positioned specifically as a kid-friendly hotel, there were a few other families with young children there during our stay.
The rooms have sleep options such as bunk beds that kids will enjoy, and the funky decor of the hotel overall is fun for the kids to admire. Huge, intricate carpets, mirrors with ornate scrollwork, and a generally funktacular (in a good way) decor will attract the kids’ attention.
That being said, there are no kid-specific activities to speak of. It’s kid-friendly-esque.
Outdoor pool = summer fun at The Time Nyack
A small outdoor pool makes the hotel extremely attractive for families during the summer. It’s a great place for adults to cool off and kids to splash around.
The girls had a great time playing in the pool every afternoon while we were there.
It’s worth noting that the walls of the pool are rough, so parents with young children will want to be vigilant about making sure the kids don’t scrape up against the sides and hurt themselves.
Stylish dining at The Time Nyack
Breakfast at The Times Nyack is standard continental fare, but it’s tasty. Breakfast options include hot coffee, tea, juices, muffins, pastries, fruit, and bagels. It was all fresh, which was nice, and they offer to-go cups for beverages when you’re ready to leave.
BV’s Grill, the hotel’s on-site restaurant is the cousin of Bobby Van’s Steakhouse, so you know it’s good.
Their dinner fare includes everything from steak and chicken to seafood. Their breakfast options include omelets, pancakes, French Toast, and other traditional breakfast goodies.
The restaurant focuses on local, organic ingredients, which I love.
Exploring Hudson Valley from The Time Nyack
At the edge of Hudson Valley in the village of Nyack, The Time Nyack’s hipster goth vibe is fun and kitschy, but still upscale and modern.
If you’re looking for a unique hotel to serve as a springboard from which to explore the rest of Hudson Valley, then The Time Nyack might just be for you!
