Hudson, New York

The Hudson Valley region is thriving.

Lucky for us, there are tons of new restaurants, shops and hotels that are slowly reviving small towns across the Catskills and Hudson region.

And while upstate New York has been booming for a while, there’s nowhere like the present to check out Hudson’s incredible farm-fresh produce, design-forward shops and stunning modern art.

Driving to Hudson

Hudson has a small train station, so you can easily take public transportation up from the city.

But, to really make the most of your trip, we recommend getting a car. That way, you can see a lot more in the area like Art Omi, try out some farm to table restaurants in the countryside and also explore different towns in the Hudson Valley. 

Hertz and Sixt have affordable car rentals all over the city.

I’ve used both in the past, just depending on car availability and price. I also recommend checking out Auto Europe, which aggregates rental rates from all the car rental companies.

Hudson Hotels

You can book everything from bed & breakfasts to boutique inns to luxury hotels lavishly decorated with gorgeous antiques.

Here are 5 excellent Hudson hotels to base yourself on a Hudson Valley getaway.


1. Inn at 34

Inn at 34 Hudson NY hotels

We stayed at the Inn at 34 on our first trip to Hudson and found it utterly charming.

The bed & breakfast is located in a gorgeous historic home that the owners have lovingly filled with antiques and incredible art.

All of the rooms are absolutely enormous and very comfortable! Best of all, the hosts are really warm and friendly – they have plenty of history and local knowledge about Hudson as well as tips for seeing the most.

Breakfast is delicious and usually includes homemade pastries and healthy, fresh food sourced from the owner’s own garden!

2. The Howard Hotel


On our second trip to Hudson, we stayed at The Howard.

It’s centrally located right on the main boulevard and has seven bright and spacious en-suite rooms.  Some rooms have a full kitchen!

Everything has been elegantly renovated and is clean, modern and spacious.

If you prefer a socially distanced visit where you can enter through a keypad and speak to no one, this is the perfect place. The Howard has a coffee and tea bar in the main lobby, with plenty of seating if you want to mingle, but also tons of privacy if you want a peaceful retreat.

There’s also the very popular Italian restaurant on-site and just next door, Ca’Mea. We went there for dinner and had a great time! For more recommendations about things to do in Hudson, check out our travel guide here.

3. St. Charles Hotel


St. Charles Hotel is a popular budget friendly hotel in Hudson.

The building is over 150 years old and has been converted to clean, comfortable (if slightly basic) rooms and is located in Hudson’s popular downtown.

Rates here are very affordable, especially for families. As a perk, they offer free breakfast!

Book rooms: Booking.com, Hotels.com | Check rates: TripAdvisor





4. Batterby House


Batterby House is located in a 21 room Victorian mansion that was originally built in 1900.

The beautiful hotel was restored with an eclectic mix of Victorian and Edwardian furniture alongside more contemporary, mid-century modern pieces and offers tons of charm and a cozy visit.

All the rooms include smart TVs, extra plush beds and complimentary snacks – plus luxurious Aesop bath products.

There’s also a fantastic breakfast each morning that uses local, seasonal ingredients!

5. The Wick


This stunning boutique hotel in Hudson is just one black from the Amtrak train station and has modern rooms mixed with historic elements (think high ceilings, original wood floors and claw foot tubs).

The service here is unparalleled, and the hotel even offers complimentary shuttle service around town.

Also included?

A state of the arm gym and electric car plugs. Talk about advanced!

Visiting NYC – Travel Checklist

Road Trips | There’s so much to see and do in Upstate New York, but one thing you need is a car. I recommend taking a road trip in Spring and Summer, or in early Fall to see the leaves change.

Hertz and Sixt offer affordable car rentals from New York City. You can also price compare on Auto Europe, an aggregator that pulls rental rates from all the car rental companies. Check rental car rates for Hudson Valley here.

Accommodation | Upstate New York has tons of hotel options – from luxurious Gilded Age getaways to romantic b&bs and quaint inns. In peak season, book hotels in advance to save, or check here for last minute deals.

If you have a group of people or want to stay in the countryside, rent a house on Airbnb. It’s especially great if you want to hike and don’t mind being a little farther from town!

Insurance | Lastly, be sure to visit Upstate New York with travel insurance. Whether you get injured and need to be hospitalized, or your phone gets stolen, travel insurance will help when you need it most. Get a quote for your trip here.
