Now Open: Candle Factory Turned Boutique Hotel

NEW YORK—Tribute Portfolio, part of Marriott International, heralded its arrival in Hudson, NY with the opening of The Wick Hotel at 41 Cross St. The original building was constructed in the mid-19th century as a candle and soap manufacturing facility, before undergoing a transformation into a boutique hotel in the last year.

The Wick is the latest adaptive-reuse historic preservation by Redburn Development, and a nomination to the National and State Historic Registers is in process.

With 55 guestrooms, including seven suites, The Wick Hotel honors and elevates the building’s heritage throughout the design, mixing modern and industrial elements with original artwork from the Hudson River School. Details include the restored 1860s hardwood floors, denim-style wallcoverings, candle-making patents and signature lighting.

Gaining popularity as an idyllic and residential yet culturally robust getaway in New York state, the city of Hudson is known for its charming independently owned shops lining the central Warren Street area. The city features dozens of art galleries, locally sourced food purveyors and a diverse range of restaurants. With a long history as a flourishing arts community, Hudson has rich architecture preserved in landmark buildings and a lively arts and dining scene.

Originally built in the 1860s, 41 Cross Street was a manufacturing hub for key industries of the time: first as a soap and candle factory, then textile manufacturing and later a knitting mill. The Wick is the latest adaptive-reuse historic preservation by Redburn Development, and a nomination to the National and State Historic Registers is in process.

“With The Wick, we saw a great opportunity for Redburn to bring our approach to historic preservation and green energy building to Hudson, and partnering with Marriott as a Tribute Portfolio helped us seamlessly blend the independent spirit of the property with world-class guest service,” said Thomas Rossi, principle of Redburn Development.
