River House at Odette’s, the new luxury lifestyle hotel in New Hope, will open along the Delaware River on Sept. 28.
The new hotel will feature an “edgy, yet elegant” design, inspired by the hotel’s previous life as actress and musician Odette Myrtil Logan’s boisterous cabaret, Chez Odette. For over two decades, Chez Odette was the social hub of New Hope’s lively artistic community, attracting celebrities and locals alike from nearby Philadelphia and New York.
River House at Odette’s has woven historic elements from Chez Odette’s colorful past into the contemporary architecture and design of the hotel.
“After many years of careful planning and curation, Refined Hospitality is pleased to announce River House at Odette’s is in its final stages of construction and opening its doors to both guests and locals ...,” said Ron Gorodesky, president of Refined Hospitality, the management company overseeing River House. “We’ve carved a unique luxury hospitality experience that pays homage to not only Odette’s legacy but also the vibrant community of New Hope.”
The hotel will feature 36 guestrooms and suites designed by Balongue Design; they will feature floral murals set behind tufted leather headboards, private spa-inspired baths, jewel-toned curated furnishings, and river and mountain views. There will be 12 suites, including two “ultra-luxurious” penthouse suites.
All guestrooms include complimentary access for up to four guests to the members-only bar and lounge, “ROOF.”
Steps away from River House will be The Residences, a stand-alone two-story building housing two suites, next spring.
River House will offer three dining establishments – Odette’s Restaurant & Lounge, the Piano Lounge cocktail parlor, and the members-only ROOF, inspired by the 1970s.
Additionally, River House will offer venue and meeting spaces including a waterfront ceremony space, a 200-guest ballroom overlooking the Delaware River and meeting rooms.
