It’s a particularly apt name, for Refinery has truly refined the boutique concept: instead of edgy quirk of dubious charm, guests will find a welcome brand of thoughtful, eclectic and intelligent design that layers cues from the past with tremendous contemporary flair. Better still, instead of vague promises of “personalized service” and “attention to detail,” the team behind Refinery has drawn up a unique menu of services and amenities that are perfectly attuned to the wide-ranging needs of savvy travelers, raising the bar for what a hotel can and should be.
