Romance at The Roxy Hotel
V explores New York City’s most romantic destination ahead of Valentine’s Day
After over two years of isolation, it’s time to nurture whatever romance means to us as we fall head-over-heels into the month of love. There is something inadvertently sexy about an impromptu getaway and for Valentine’s Day, a stay at The Roxy Hotel hits all the right notes.
Under its beaming marquee, this luxury boutique hotel is tucked away in the trendy Tribeca neighborhood. Upon entry, guests are engulfed in warm amber hues that intensify the hotel’s rich mahogany and art deco accoutrements. The scent of leather and a live piano––a jazzy rendition of Shaggy’s 2000s classic, “It Wasn’t Me”–– swirl through the air from looby to retro-chic furnished rooms.
The Roxy, in essence, is a perfect mix of modernity with a dash of nostalgia. Albeit sultry, the decor, ambiance, and energy make its namesake theme scintillating to the five senses throughout the hotel experience.
For the perfect date night, head to the Roxy Bar and enjoy the undisrupted views of the hotel’s unique 10,000-square- foot central atrium, while you and your boo sink into sumptuous leather sofas with a handcrafted cocktail. Dine over smooth jazz classics from the live band or should the night call for privacy, secure a bottle of Moët & Chandon from the hotel’s Valentine’s Day specials and indulge in room service options between the 100% Egyptian cotton sheets.
Yearning for a little more?
The night doesn’t have to end there. Known for its infamous live jazz club just below the hotel, The Django, is optimal for nightcap entertainment. Modeled after the boîtes of Paris, acts such as The Hudson Horn’s croon soulful ballads like Luther Vandross’s “Never Too Much”, and surprise sets such as Mystikal’s “Shake Your Ass” with a jazzy spin. The underground space filled with couples watch in a romantic embrace, while some can no longer resist and dance the night away.
Cinephile lovebirds, grab a gourmet snack, and make your way to the Roxy Cinema Tribeca––enjoy cult classics on 35mm film, instead. Whatever the night may call for the incredible staff and servers are sure to make your stay unforgettable.
Whether for Valentine’s Day or a spontaneous much-needed getaway with the one you love—or lust—remember what romance is with a rendevous at The Roxy Hotel.
