Retro Retreat: The Roxbury Motel in the Catskills
I'll be honest and say my knowledge of US geography doesn't extend beyond the major cities. But if I was over and feeling adventurous, I might make a point of visiting The Roxbury in the Catskills.
This particular retreat has a whole wing packed with themed rooms, based loosely around TV shows of the 60s and 70s. So enjoy a stay in the likes of The Shagadellic, George's Spacepad, Genie's Bottle, Upstairs Downstairs, Fred’s Lair, The Mod Pod, Golightly a Go-Go, The Partridge Nest, and Samantha’s Cloud. You can see an image of the Mod Pod here, but there's slideshow images of all the theme rooms on the website.
Throw in a cool cocktail bar and some great scenery and it looks like a winner. Prices vary according to room, time of the week and season, but start at $90, rising to over $200 per night.
