For those who want to relive the Age of Aquarius, there is Hotel Dylan, which opened last month in Woodstock, N.Y.
The two-story lodging, decorated by Cortney and Robert Novogratz as part of a $1.5 million renovation, makes its hippie sympathies obvious from its sign out front (where the “o” in “Hotel” is a peace symbol) to the turntables and vinyl records furnishing each of the 11 guest rooms.
Woodstock is “still a music town,” said Paul Covello, one of the owners, crediting the drummer Levon Helm with keeping the flame going by hosting concerts at his nearby home until his death in 2012.
Rooms are decorated with portraits of rock stars taken by Elliott Landy, the official photographer of the 1969 Woodstock Festival in Bethel. The beds are recycled wood or iron, and some have accent pillows emblazoned with the words “Love Is All You Need.” Rooms are $189 to $289 a night. Hotel Dylan is at 320 Maverick Road, Woodstock, N.Y.
