If the staff of Air Mail were to ever embark on a corporate retreat—next year, comrades?—we have identified the likeliest venue. Just yesterday, a sparkling new hotel opened up in Hudson, New York (just two hours’ drive from our HQ, in Greenwich Village), that reminds us of what we’ve been missing for the past 148 days. Not like we’re counting.

For the moment, the Maker Hotel is open from Thursdays through Mondays. (Tuesdays and Wednesdays will be dedicated to cleaning.) It’s best to book for leaf-peeping season now, because with looks like these, expect a waiting list.
