Booked into The Barlow for one night getaway from nyc. Arrived to find the place cold and unwelcoming, with indifferent, bored staff (the receptionist’s sister sat next to her with legs splayed, slumped in a chair as I tried to check in). The lobby area...More

Not sure how to respond to this...only because none of our Front Desk staff have a sister (and how would you know that was her sister? Did she introduce herself?). Also, if there were two people in the Lobby at the Front Desk how could...More

Information varied with advance calls to the hotel. Yes, all the showers were roll in. Others said none of the showers had grab bars. Eventually we were told there is a handicapped-accessible room. Well, not really. What we found upon arrival was a roll-in shower...More

So the shelves are too high, dimmer switches "defy logic", shower "takes half an hour to figure out", the blanket doesn't fit and the mirror "fell down". You didn't mention whether you asked anyone for assistance, so I have to believe the answer is "no"....More

We chose this place because it is located on the main street where the shops and restaurants are. We also wanted to be in a guest room that has a more modern decor not a place with a lot of flowers on fabrics and antiques....More

This was my second stay at The Barlow for business travel. I really enjoy the well appointed and sizeable rooms. Most notably, the showers are amazing and help relax after a long day at work. The beds and pillows are, along with the fireplace my...More

On behalf of the management and staff of The Barlow thank you for the great review. As an locally owned and independently operated property we're proud of the personality of the hotel (and its quirks) and how the hotel reflects Hudson's historic charm and modern...More

A pleasant but underwhelming place to stay for a night. Obviously a renovated historic building, fairly well done but some additional attention could've been paid to the details. Room had a large portable air unit and uncomfortable settee. No views. Best amenities were the pillows...More

Response from Russell G, Owner at The BarlowResponded 7 October 2017

Thanks so much for your comments. Converting a former downtown (thus no views) office building into a hotel was, as you can imagine, no easy task but we tried to balance keeping the historic details and charm of the building with ensuring guests are provided...More
