Hotel Roger Williams Unveils Outdoor Oasis

A little known fact about The Hotel Roger Williams, often referred to as The Roger, is that adorning this hip, cozy and stylish 190-room property are 17 outdoor terraces.

On June 1, the newly redesigned ?Veranda Four One One? will open offering guests of room 411, or local New Yorkers in the know, an 800-square-foot terrace which will offer the ideal spot for hosting an intimate, candle-lit dinner party or special event for up to 40 people.

In a city where outdoor space during warm weather seasons is in high demand, The Roger?s terraces are a rare and precious find and highly unique for a New York hotel.  Interior Designer Annette Jaffe, whose vibrant color schemes and unique touches can be seen throughout the property, has outfitted Veranda Four One One with scattered lounge areas featuring comfy furniture highlighted by striped pillows and cushions.  Candelabras, sconces and candle lanterns combined with walls of climbing ivy and an array of flora further help set the tone of an urban ?English? garden set high above Madison Avenue. 

One of the main features of Veranda Four One One is the new retractable, remote-controlled awning draped above the entire space, which provides coverage for guests during inclement weather.  Additionally, the Veranda is equipped with speakers allowing a variety of music, ranging from jazz to club lounge, to be piped through lending to the relaxing ambiance.

Veranda Four One One offers the ideal event space for rehearsal dinners, bridal and baby showers, birthday parties and intimate corporate events or, for those simply enjoying an overnight in Room 411, it?s a relaxing space to sit back and take in the New York vibe with a delicious Jolly Roger cocktail. Catering for events and private dinners on Veranda Four One One is specially created by Lounge Roger Williams whose menu was formulated by renowned restaurateur Jonathan Morr.
