Great spot that would fit any urban area. Super staff. Rooms are new and stylish in a woodie Soho style. Some bed only rooms on 3d floor would be great for family friends outing. Best of all the restaurant might even be the best part with decor and food on par with rest of world class eateries.

What a tremendous compliment! We read this and sincerely appreciate you saying all these kind things...It has us glowing. You're absolutely right about the Haley, Margaret and Kemp rooms--they do make a nice family/friends scenario when rented together as they are on a shared bath. We have also nearly completed our coffee deck on the same floor as these shared... More

My husband, 3-year-old and I recently stayed, dined, and nearly lost our minds with happiness at Wm. Farmer & Sons. We had a few days to take off unexpectedly, and decided to go -- we'd never been before but heard good things. On arrival, we were met with the friendliest greeting -- they were expecting us and knew our names,... More

We're so happy you were able to make it up to Hudson and were able to become fast friends with our team! It's a wonderful thing when families can relate to each other. The owners here know all too well of traveling w/toddlers, so we want the families that visit us to be just as comfortable as you and yours.... More

My daughter and I were visiting a friend in NYC from Dallas. We decided to add a weekend in Hudson to our plans and we are SO glad we did! We enjoyed beautiful views of the river from the train and when we arrived in Hudson we walked one short block from the station to Farmers. We stayed two nights... More

I love visiting Hudson; and on this trip was taking my Dad from Australia to check out the town. We rented the larger "studio" which has a bedroom; and then an additional bed in the living room. It was a lovely set up - but I should point out it is separate from the hotel - a few doors down... More

Stayed in the James Louie rm. On the third floor not second. VERY narrow and steep with short steps.

Wm Farmer and Sons is an amazing experience. If you are lucky enough to stay or dine with them, take extra time to understand the amazing attention to detail. Whether with the menu, ingredients, room decor, or presentation and service approach, the owners are re-defining the entire guest experience. Absolutely amazing.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Wm Farmer and Sons is an intimate, eleven room hotel located in the heart of historical Hudson. We offer devilishly attractive rooms at unpretentious prices. Known for our eclectic charm and comfort, our 1830’s Inn now features a restaurant, barroom and coffee shop. Authentic farm-to-table cuisine and craft cocktails served up daily. Each room has a view of the Catskill Mountains or Hudson River. Fresh morning fruit and premium coffee are complimentary. We admittedly make it hard to rouse your self in the morning – luxury beds, 500 thread count sheets, and big fluffy pillows conspire against you, while in-room flat screen TVs and free WiFi scratch your digital itch. When you do rise, we’re just steps from Hudson’s local galleries, hip boutiques, and growing music scene. ... more   less
