A two-hour drive from New York City, the Hudson Valley is the winter weekend destination of choice for city dwellers. With vineyards, old-money mansions, and quaint cottages surrounded by autumnal foliage, it’s easy to see why. Former New Yorkers move to the area to embrace a slower pace of life, and after a weekend or two here, you’ll be tempted to join them. Here’s our pick of the best hotels in the region.

Set in a historic textile mill, this circular hotel is a minimalist haven. Rooms feature neutral tones and views of the Fishkill Creek rapids – best seen from the in-room deep soaking tubs. Food is pride of place here. Choose between the chandelier-dotted Smoke on the Water steakhouse, serving Maine lobster, Kumamoto oysters and Hudson Valley duck breast, and the Roundhouse Restaurant, specializing in American and international dishes.

Behind its 19th-century brownstone facade, the Morgan State House is an Albany-based gem. Rooms are classic guesthouse style – think wood-burning fireplaces, four-poster beds and views across the adjacent Washington Park. The English garden out back with ivy-filled window boxes and vibrant blooms is a lovely spot to relax with a book on a warm day.

    If a private members club had the charm of a family-run hotel, the Saratoga Arms would be the result. Step across the large front porch into this boutique hotel, built in 1870.
