Hotel named after Bob Dylan opens in Woodstock

A hotel named after Bob Dylan has opened in Woodstock, New York. The Hotel Dylan is located Route 28, just southwest of the town where Dylan and The Band recorded and not far from where the festival took place in 1969. It has been designed by owner Paul Covello and architects Cortney and Robert Novogratz.

A hotel named after Bob Dylan has opened in Woodstock, New York.

The Hotel Dylan is located Route 28, just southwest of the town where Dylan and The Band recorded and not far from where the festival took place in 1969. It has been designed by owner Paul Covello and architects Cortney and Robert Novogratz.

The establishment, which Covello told the No Depression has a “bohemian sophistication”, also features rooms named in tribute to musicians other than Dylan who are associated with the area and the Woodstock festival, including ‘The Jimi,’ and ‘The Band Suite’. Elliot Landy’s famous photographs of The Band, from the Music From The Big Pink shoot, are on the walls.

Every room in the hotel has its own turntable and records. Plans for a gastropub are also in the pipeline, where Covello says there will be a music venue for “intimate, unplugged concerts”.

Meanwhile, a total of 149 ‘lost’ Bob Dylan acetate records were found in a New York cupboard earlier this month. The never-heard-before versions of songs that would eventually feature on the iconic singer-songwriter’s Nashville Skyline, Self Portrait and New Morning albums were found in a closet in a building at 124 W Houston Street in Manhattan, which was once home to a studio Dylan worked in from 1969 to 1972.
