If You Love 'Hamilton,' Stay in This Revolutionary War-themed Room in Upstate New York
Don’t throw away your shot at a truly unique stay in New York’s Catskill Mountains.
As the world waits for the very exciting premiere of a filmed version of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway hit Hamilton on Disney+, there’s one place in the historic Catskill Mountains that will truly immerse history buffs in the time of Alexander Hamilton himself.
One of the mansion rooms at The Roxbury at Stratton Falls pays tribute to two of Hamilton’s contemporaries, the Stratton brothers, who fought in the Revolutionary War together. After the war, the brothers allegedly traveled through the wilderness from Connecticut to New York’s Catskills Mountains and settled at a gorgeous waterfall (now called Stratton Falls).
The room blends modern comfort with historical decor, so don’t worry, you actually won’t be sleeping like they did in the 18th century. The room features log-cabin style décor, a custom musket-and-saber bed canopy over a queen-sized bed, a walk-in shower with a 10-foot high ceiling, a refreshment station with dorm-size refrigerator, microwave and coffee machine, and of course, sweeping views of the Catskills.
And if you’re concerned about traveling during the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, you can feel assured that The Roxbury has new, updated safety guidelines including social distancing, mandatory masks while indoors, an automated registration system, and updated hygiene and sanitation protocols. The property is also offering a number of deals, like a Front-Line Kind promotion where essential workers receive 15% off their stay, as well as a Summer of Serenity promotion where guests stay two nights and get the third free.
Rates for the unique, Revolutionary War-themed room range between $138 and $198 per night. The property itself has a number of other bespoke rooms, including ones themed for the 1930’s and the 1960’s, modern contemporary rooms, a stone-age room, rooms themed for TV shows like Bewitched, The Partridge Family, I Dream of Jeannie, and many more.
