I hoped for affordable accommodations within walking distance of the Amtrak station and Hudson's business district for a 1.5-day stay in Hudson. The Union Street Guest House was terrific on all counts. Making a reservation in advance was efficient; the building and suite were easy to find; and my suite was charmingly furnished and comfortable down to the smallest detail. I appreciated the fresh ground coffee, interesting loose teas, and everything I needed to make them upon my arrival after a long train trip. Check-in and check-out were easily accomplished even though I never met the proprietor, and I also liked having restaurant recommendations and books about local history. In short, I loved my stay and would return at the earliest opportunity.

This was our 2nd stay at USGH. We were greeted with a note and a key directing us to our room. Our room was exactly what we had hoped for - 3 bedrooms, living room, kitchen, darling sun porch, etc. The reality was there was one bathroom and the hot water situation made it that we had to time our baths - one in the morning, one in the afternoon, one in the evening. The hot water ran out. What USGH is lacking is personal contact. We made contact with the on-site guy Dan on the second day and only after I had called him the previous day (he has a full time job and the owner was not around). There was no maid service and when I asked Dan he said normally if you stay 2 days they don't clean. I told him we were staying 3 days and in that case he would make a call and see if someone could clean our room. We wanted them to replace our ripped towels and make our bed that had ripped sheets. My big gripe would be that there should be more on-the-premises contact. The place in CHARMING with a capital C but the prices are not cheap, so a little more service would be nice.

I was discouraged by some of the reviews for the Union Street Guest House, but when I arrived I was more than happy with what I got for my money. If you're looking for a classic bed & breakfast experience this place is not for you. After you check in, you will likely not come into contact with another soul until you drop your key off at checkout. But if you're looking for a great accommodation in an ideal location for a really good price and you don't mind having to leave to get food, than the Union Street Guest House is perfect. Honestly, I prefer to have my own space and not be disturbed by other guests or an inn keeper trying to feed me breakfast, lunch and dinner. Hudson is filled with great restaurants and I was happy to try them out instead of staying in the hotel. But when we DID stay in my room, we had wireless internet, tons of cable stations and a nicely functioning central heat that allowed us to control our own temp and stay cozy. We stayed in the Bainbridge Suite. So it might not be the same for the other suites, but it was perfect a trip with some friends. The 2 bedrooms were great and each room has it's own TV. The wireless internet was quite spotty. I'd say that was my only complaint. But otherwise, I'd give Union Street 4 out of 5 stars overall. But 5 stars for value. We loved it. Thanks!

My wife and I stayed in the Library Suite for our anniversary. The suite was spacious, comfortable, and had lots of charm. Perfect spot for those who want something a bit different from the norm.
2.4 on January 15, 2015
The location was beautiful, however, there was no one there to welcome us/check us in/help us with our bags when we checked in. Or during our one night stay. Or the next morning as we were leaving. Very strange. We just left our keys and picked up our keys at the front desk. Fine, maybe they were giving us our privacy? We wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt. The suite was freezing cold--the bedrooms were fine, but the living area was incredibly cold. Keep in mind this is December 31 in upstate New York. When we arrived there were throw pillows stuffed around the window air conditioning unit to block out the draft. That's something you don't often see in an expensive bed and breakfast (though they were very very clear on the fact that this was not a bed and breakfast even when I called before our arrival, no breakfast would be served). The suite itself was a mix of fancy and shabby. I was fine (ish) with the decor, but it reminded me too much of the ad hoc decorating and general shabbiness of hipster living in NYC--that's where we came from, I didn't really want to stay in a place that looked like my apartment on a NYE getaway. Bottom line, this was FINE. That's it. We needed a suite to accommodate two couples with two toddlers and it did the job. The coffee they left for us was extraordinary though, with nice L'Occitane toiletries. Unlike the selection of Wise chips left in the kitchen. Not kitschy, just gross.

Had dinner plans so did not have to rely on the guest house. A detailed dining guide was provided in the room.

Very nice details, very clean room and lovely antiques. Very homey and pretty. Near restaurants and shops - 2 blocks away!

We had such a great time. We stayed in the Library suite, which is perfect for a romantic couples weekend. The whole property is really quaint, looks a little bleak from the outside (but its winter so that could be the reason), but once you step in its very charming, cool and quirky- the room was HUGE and very nicely decorated, had such character in a very good way. also perfectly located, we walked to our amazing dinner at Fish and Game and didn't use our car the entire weekend!
3.2 on December 03, 2014
The room was two rooms, living room and bedroom, so was quite spacious. It was called the Library Suite and was equipped with books, some about the area which were fun to read. Close to the main street, it was very convenient and comfortable. Bathroom could have been updated a bit, but otherwise homey and comfortable.
3.6 on October 29, 2014
The Union Street Guest House is as charming as can be. We stayed in the treetops suite and loved it. It is very rustic but clean and comfortable. The dining category is not applicable here as there is no breakfast or meal provided or available. It is expensive, but everything in Hudson is.

I usually don't write reviews, but felt the need to balance out the story for Union Street. I booked it needing a large room for 5 people (who also accepted a child) & then found a series of exceedingly harsh reviews and comments about staying there. Needless to say I was quite nervous upon checking in. Clearly something personal happened with some group of people because those negative reviews weren't even close to my experience. I checked in at 4pm as scheduled and Dan greeted me with a pleasant welcome. He pulled out a map and highlighted several of the better restaurants, gave me phone numbers for taxis I would need upon leaving, walked me over to the building with my room, offered to help me with luggage, made sure I had his phone number, handed me the keys and then departed. I went upstairs (no elevator for those who need one) and opened the door to the Gallery Suite. Wow! The place is HUGE! It has three bedrooms, a sun room, a kitchen (no stove), an entry room, a sitting room and an office. My informal estimate is about 1800 sq. ft. The décor is eclectic to say the least, with an odd mix of modern and antique furnishings and artwork, but it has been thought out in its own way. The only small negative was only one bathroom for three bedrooms. I adored staying here. It was located very close to the main shopping and restaurants of Hudson, and overall had a great sense of escape to it. We were sad to leave and I would definitely stay here again. As others have described, it is definitely "self-service". They do not change towels or sheets daily. They do not serve breakfast (hence guest house, not B&B). There is not someone always available in the lobby waiting to help you - but you do have phone number if needed. If you need lots of service or a perfectly period furnished historic building, this is not the place for you. But if you like large rooms and comfortable settings in an old building, this is a great place to stay.

Stayed in the library room. Looked spectacular and was very comfortable. Cancellation policy is weirdly terrifyingly worded. But check-in and check-out were easy and e-mails were answered quickly. Didn't dine there but gave it a high rating because they provided excellent recommendations in answer to my question about where to eat the night of our late arrival. Overall stay felt very special.
3.4 on October 09, 2014
We booked the entire property for our daughter's wedding party -- the bride, groom and all groomsmen and bridesmaids. They loved the eclectic décor and the inner courtyard was great for their late night gatherings. Dan was great and very helpful.

We stayed in the Library Suite. We arrived at a strange time of night hen there wasn't anyone at the desk, but the owner (?) had left us a friendly note with his cell number and instructions on how to get to our room, which was very considerate. Our room was beautifully decorated, smelled really nice and was extremely clean (and my standards are high!). There was no noise at night, and we went to the "honor bar" late in the evening, slipped $20 in the box and had four mixed drinks, not a bad deal for drinks made with high quality liquors! We enjoyed them in the sitting area in our room In the morning we needed a blow dryer and an iron, and just as we started to stress out that we forgot to bring them, we saw that they were provided in the room. We had to grab a quick breakfast in the morning, and our room reccomedations and menus for several places in town! Overall a fantastic stay. We will certainly be back.
3.6 on September 07, 2014
Stayed here for the second time almost 3 years after first stay. All in all, we would not complain about the facility itself. We liked the room (Thunderbird Suite). It is not sumptuous, but a lot of space and privacy. It is also not a period restoration, nor does it aspire to be. Instead, the owner has spent money on some things (light fixtures and tile) while being more frugal in other areas (veneer stained plywood flooring and some "finds" here and there). Everything is (dare I say tastefully) mixed in: 1970's furniture with 1950s kitchen equipment, 1910s and 1920 photos with recently created wall art. I don't consider it quirky; I think instead, it is well-assembled. Our only complaint for this stay is that they should really upgrade the window air conditioners. The first night, one unit cycled the fan up and down all night (fan, not compressor) which really interfered with sleep. The staff replaced it the next day, but the compressor in the second unit sounded like it was on its last legs; very loud. For what this place aspires to be, this is somewhat inexplicable. A decent new AC would cost less than a one night stay. Actually, in contrast to our first stay, we had better experience. The first time around, I rented the room in the afternoon since my family was driving from elsewhere, explaining that they would be there later. When my family finally arrived about 9:45 pm, however, we were greeted as though we had committed some sort of sin even though I had already checked in, fully paid for the room (non-refundable by the way), had the key in hand, and had not requested any help for unloading. Bottom line -- I think the place has the potential to be a very nice place to stay, memorable even. I guess only time will tell if the human interface can come around.

Union Street Guest House is a gem in Hudson. We had a wonderful stay in the Gallery Suite. The owner was constantly in touch to make sure all our needs were covered. Definitely recommend.
4.2 on August 13, 2014
Union Street Guest House in the beautiful town of Hudson, NY is a real winner. Quirky and cool with well thought out design and the most comfortable beds ever. If full-service is what you are looking for this isn't the place for you because this place is like checking into your own awesome apartment and exploring the area on foot--which is exactly what we wanted. Would stay here every weekend if I could.
5 on August 06, 2014
We stayed in the bungalow, what an amazing place. everything was perfect. We were there to attend a wedding in the area. We wanted to stay at a smaller quaint type hotel and this was the place. So beautiful, so nice. Again everything was perfect

This was our second trip to Hudson and we stayed at Union Street Guest house each time. The Library suite is spacious and beautifully decorated. Great location. Highly recommend!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Union Street Guest House for a romantic rendezvous, and we both cannot stop raving about our stay. The property was delightful, our room was quaint and intimate (we stayed in the Treetop Suite), the owner Chris was so kind and easy to work with, and we both look forward to a future stay in Hudson, NY at this guest house again!

Room was great, location was awesome for going to eat and walk around and staff was very helpful upon arrival.

The Library Suite is on the first floor of an annex building right next door to the lobby. The living room was comfortably furnished with period pieces. Both the sofa and the chairs were welcoming to readers like us. One of the books in the room was ARCHETECTURE OF HUDSON, which I read cover to cover. It was filled with pictures of Hudson's history, including some then and now pictures. The roomy bedroom contained both a king bed and a daybed. The room air conditioner in this room was enough to cool both rooms. The rooms were clean, and the bed was comfortable. We also had a private, separate bathroom with a claw foot tub. We had plenty of hot water. Although the inn does not serve meals, both coffee and tea are furnished in the rooms. We also had a small fridge, and ice was available behind the lobby next door. Also, Dan, the guy who checked us in, gave us a map of the town and marked all the restaurants. The main street was only one street over. All in all, we had a very pleasant stay.

Hudson is a town in transition. Country charm, but a sense that they are trying to bring it back to life.

We would definitely stay again. Central location, clean and comfortable accommodations. Lovely service.

This guest house certainly makes it's guests feel right at home. The eclectic decor lets ones imagination roam from wall to wall, room to room! Chris, the proprietor turns his establishment over to you upon check in with access to a community guest kitchen for extra wine glasses, additional local roasted coffee that is in your room for brewing! A basket of crunchy treats are generously awaiting you, also. Park your card upon arrival and leave it as the famous Warren St. Is one block over. That's where you are magically transported into an antique world, a culinary world and a fashion world. An abundance of unique shops await all who casually stroll for over a mile! My suggestion...get online and book a nice stress relieving stay at Union Street Guest House
3.2 on May 13, 2014
Comfortable, clean, convenient
3.6 on April 30, 2014
We stayed in the Gallery Suite for an extended family gathering. The suite was huge and exceeded our expectations. It was decorated in an eclectic,vintage, funky style, which was comfortable and interesting to the eye. The location was close to all the action of Hudson, but a block off Warren street, so it was a bit quieter. The bedroom are in the back, so we did not hear any street noise while sleeping. I would definitely stay there again. But, do read the website, it is not a bed and breakfast, but a guest house, where you have privacy to go in and out at will, with no meals. There are great breakfast places nearby. It was way better than having 6 of us in 3 hotel rooms!
4.8 on April 27, 2014
We stayed in the Bainbridge suite, which was perfect for our family, including a toddler and a dog. It was spacious, charming, perfectly clean and extremely comfortable. Thanks for a lovely evening!
4.6 on April 21, 2014
Stayed here with my friend and 2 young daughters. The rooms were fabulous filled with eclectic and beautiful furnishings. The main rooms were so unique in their décor! The upstairs lounge, the gym and other common areas were enchanting. The staff was pleasant and helpful and the location was perfect. Would return in a heartbeat. What a fabulous getaway!
4.6 on April 18, 2014
We just spent a great night up in the Treetops Suite. So cozy and private... it's actually a little separate cabin out in back of the guesthouse. Decorated with such care-- full of great vintage chachkis and photos. I loved spending my morning on the little porch, reading my book & sipping a cup of the completely delicious local coffee that was provided in the room. No breakfast, but there are so many great cafes & breakfast spots on Warren Street, that we really wanted to eat out at one of those places, anyway. Really a great getaway!

I stayed at the union house overnight as a first time visitor to beautiful Hudson. Loved the character and charm, lots of space to relax. Almost didn't want to brave the cold and just stay in. Great location, walking distance to warren street. It definitely made the experience unique and memorable. This however is not a B and B so there was no dining included at the guest house.
3.8 on April 01, 2014
Stayed here several times. Their rooms are very comfortable and uniquely decorated. Had a great experience this time. Unfortunately, could not use a gift card with them because they told me they would not make change, ie, the card was for more than the stay.
2.8 on March 29, 2014
Not sure why this is considered a B and B as there isn't any breakfast included and there is minimal contact with the owner. Even less than a motel I would say. He very perfunctorily checked us in and isn't available at all in the morning, that I could tell. Sign on the door said no one was in the lobby until 3 p.m. check in. The room was outstanding, however and so spacious and it was very centrally located so as to walk to all the shops on Warren St. So, a great place to stay if you are looking for great digs without any personal contact.

We stayed in the Library Suite. The room was terrific. I'd stay here again. No breakfast is served but there are plenty of good options close by. Try Tansy's.

The room was very nice, very well decorated. The only problem we had was that the living area was uncomfortably cold. There wasn't a thermostat to regulate the heat in the living room/kitchen. The bedrooms (2) were overly warm but we had to wrap in the duvet from the bedroom while sitting in the living room just to stay warm. Also, there were not towels or paper towels in the kitchen and not enough glasses for the people staying in the room.
3.4 on March 05, 2014
Very nice property. Clean and interesting decor. Stayed in Bainbridge suite which was private and spacious. Use of the lounge in the main house was a nice bonus.

We enjoyed our stay at the Union Street Guest House. Our room (really a two bedroom apartment!) was very cozy, quiet, and outfitted with coffee and snacks. The owner was very nice at check-in.

Loved the adorable thunderbird suite! Had 2 BR/2BA spacious suite for 2 couples. Decorated with cute antiques. Immaculately clean. Walking distance to Hudson main drag. Great value - many b&b's in the area charge similarly for 1 room per night. Would stay again if visiting. Breakfast not included, but you will not even miss it. Great restaurants just blocks away that open early.
4.4 on February 10, 2014
We arrived on a freezing cold day, and were told that our room wasn't available because the water pipes had frozen. Instead, we were given a larger room, which was fine with us! We were checked in by a friend of the owner who gave us a quick rundown of the room and then left us alone for the duration of the stay. The room had the feeling of staying in a friend's home, not a B&B. We loved it. Everything was spotlessly clean. We really had no complaints at all. Looking forward to coming back again in the summer. (gave a 5 star rating for dining, but there wasn't an attached restaurant. The system didn't let me leave this blank)
4.0 on January 22, 2014
I loved it here, the suite is literally the "library" and adjoining bedroom of what I assume to be the original guest house. It is quaint, spacious and charming. It is not the Waldorf Astoria--if you are looking for that you probably won't find that in Hudson. Five minute walk to the main street--shops, restaurants, antique shops. No need to drive from this location. Super friendly staff. Bottles of water in the fridge, coffee ready for brewing, L'Occitane in the bathroom.

My favorite place to stay in Hudson. The rooms are beautiful, stylish and cozy. The location is central yet quiet, and the hospitality is warm yet they leave you to yourselves. All around a wonderful experience.

Stayed in a suite with my husband and two young daughters. The inn was charming, a were our hosts. Lots of character, architecturally interesting, quiet, yet within an easy walk to downtown fun in Hudson. I am already hearing requests for a return visit.
4.2 on December 12, 2013
This was our first time staying at Union Street Guest House and it exceeded our expectations. We stayed in The Library Suite and were tempted to stay in all day and enjoy the room instead of walking around town. The snacks provided in the room were a nice and unexpected touch. Next time we'll definitely plan to stay an extra night so that we can take better advantage of the room.
4.4 on December 08, 2013
The Union Street Guest House was so welcoming, warm, and comfortable that we actually were calling it our "apartment".

We had a beautiful and peaceful stay at the Union Street Guest House. We stayed in the Treetop Suite with our dog Rudy. The roomy suite was uniquely decorated, with comfortable couch and bed. Everything was so clean. We felt like we found a perfect fit the moment we walked into the suite.Everything we needed for our stay was in this suite: microwave, tv, refrigerator, big bathroom, coffee maker and hot water kettle for tea. We absolutely loved our stay at Union Street Guest House in the funky town of Hudson NY.

My daughter is a scholarship finalist for Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson so I brought her from Atlanta for a quick trip to see what living in upstate NY would feel like. While about a 20 minute drive from the school, I picked Hudson because (on a Sunday and Monday) I thought we'd have a better shot at finding places open to eat, etc. Union Street Guest House is within walking distance to all the main stuff. It is well-appointed and not your grandma's B&B - in fact, there is no second B(reakfast)
4.4 on November 07, 2013
We stayed at the B&B in May 2013 and had a wonderful stay. We felt right at home from the first moment, loving every detail of the decor and ambience. We can't wait to go back to Hudson and stay there again. We saw the mixed reviews here and decided we have to take sides, since this was one of our favorites B&B throughout our road trip.
4.8 on November 05, 2013
Stayed in the treetops suite and was surprised at the size of the suite. It was huge. Perfect for a weekend getaway. Rates were a bit higher but worth it. It is about a 10-15 min walk from the train station and one short block from Warren st (main street with all the fun shops). They don't serve breakfast which is great because there's so many places to eat. The overall feel of the area was quaint. Very diverse neighborhood with beautiful homes some in need of major work. Guesthouse is a great choice. Owner leaves you alone. Don't expect friendly conversation. Just enjoy the property and area!
5 on November 05, 2013
My second stay at the USGH was every bit as pleasant as the first. Even when the power went out in the entire city of Hudson, staying here was a real joy. I love the decor and quiet ease of staying there—it's not even close to fussy and that I appreciate. I wish these were all over the country.

Clean, spacious and nice. Recommended.
2.2 on October 20, 2013
This guest house is not a B & B; one must find breakfast elsewhere in Hudson. The proprietors deal only on line, unlike most visitor-friendly B & B's, so It's hard to know what you're getting. Furthermore, they bill your credit card immediately upon booking, even months before arrival. One imagines this is to discourage no-shows, which might be a temptation when one arrives at the location and finds the neighborhood somewhat unsavory, at first glance, and not in the middle of Hudson's charming main street. This street is only one block away, so the location is not as bad as first impressions might predict. Suites are large and comfy, but lighting is dim.
4.6 on October 15, 2013
We had an outstanding stay at the Union Street Guest House. The Library Suite was very charming and well furnished. I will definitely be reurning! Wonderful location within Hudson as well.

I knew nothing of Hudson or what it has to offer and booked Union Guest House out of the blue. Chris the manager was helpful, recommended great restaurants and was low key. A very relaxed stay in a very stylish guest house. We shall return.

There was no dining area but coffee, tea and snacks were available in the room. There should be a not offered option on this survey. Wonderful guest house with great art books in the rooms. Lovely sheets and towels.

We had a great 1-night stay at the Union Street Guest House last weekend. The Bainbridge Suite was perfect for our family. Lovely decor, very clean, and check-in and check-out were a breeze. We would love to stay again next time we're in Hudson.
3.4 on August 21, 2013
Enjoyed a lovely two-night stay here in the Treetops Suite, which we loved - a very rustic and kitschy atmosphere; cozy and very comfortable. By doing research, we knew that this would not be a spot where we would be spoiled and pampered, which was fine with us. Staff was very pleasant but unobtrusive; you will be pretty much on your own, so if you like chatty "You are my new best friends" type innkeepers, you may want to look elsewhere. Another plus is that it is very convenient to Hudson's Warren Street, which has most of the action. Would definitely return if visiting Hudson again.

My daughter, granddaughter and I stayed for one night in August. We were immensely surprised and pleased by the quaint and creative rooms, and spent a long time discovering and enjoying all the unusual vintage touches. Our rooms were divided into two guest room, a sitting area with a fireplace and refrigerator, and a long sun porch-like room with rattan chairs, mats, and unique lamps for reading. While breakfast isn't included, snacks were left along with a book with dining suggestions. The street has some run down homes on it, but the guest house is only a block from the main street where all the shops and restaurants are located. This place fit the bill for a relaxing night with a special and unusual atmosphere that we will long remember.
4.8 on July 11, 2013
Well-appointed spacious rooms, each with its own character and ambience. I've stayed here three times and look forward to the next visit. A relaxing getaway from the city. (I live in NYC.) Amenities are above and beyond expectations, including a really fast wifi!. As a guesthouse, you are on your own, but it's nice they respect privacy. No dining on premises, but many good restaurants are on the next block or so. The guesthouse is conveniently centered between the riverfront and the happenings on the other end of Warren Street. The Treehouse (my favorite) is very campy, and I mean that in a fun and literal way.
1.4 on July 10, 2013
When we arrived there was a huge dog in the lobby. He was scary and the owner did nothing to hold him away from me. Then he told me to wait outside (in the heat) while my husband registered. He did not show us our room or explain any amenities (there were none). I asked about breakfast and he said this is a guest house --- not a bread and breakfast. Very unpleasant experience.
3.2 on July 01, 2013
The location couldn't be beat! Though they did start cutting the grass at like 9 in the morning which was not such a fun wake up. I would recommend this place, nice big room and good bed. The location was ideal!

We had the Thunderbird Suite. One of the bedrooms had a good air conditioner, the other not so good. But we enjoyed our stay, in any case. The grounds outside were lovely and relaxing. I'd book again if traveling through Hudson.

The room was better than we had expected (very large) and was a good location to downtown Hudson.

Staff made things very easy for us. Felt at home. Will stay there again upon returning to Hudson

The Gallery Suite was mcuh more than we expected. We were in town for a graduation at nearby Bard College, and having 3 bedrooms and a common living room area was all we were expecting, this was so much more, there is so much room and it is so comfortable, we stayed only one night but enjoyed it completely. And of course within walking distance of all Hudson has to offer. Would stay here again for sure.

I stayed with my family of four at Union street guest house. I was a little apprehensive because of some of the negative reviews. But we had a great time there! They even upgraded us to a bigger suite. The owners were friendly and non intrusive. The houses were tastefully done, it exactly the kind of peaceful place you need when coming from Manhattan. Must visit!
3.8 on May 28, 2013
Room is very nice, clean and surrounding is very beautiful. No negative points on the place and how it is maintained. However, I was charged twice to my credit card for only 1 night booked, and I have to contact credit card company to do the reserve on this. I just booked and no amendment of my booking, no cancellation, nothing at all, and no confusion or complecation that would result in any misunderstanding on payment at all.

2 Friends and I recently spent 2 nights at the Union St. Guest House in Hudson, NY. We had a wonderful time and really liked the accommodations. The rooms appear to vary a great deal. The library has a more refined decor and feel, whereas the Bainbridge Suite is more reminiscent of a lakeside cottage (minus the lake). This B&B is one short block away from Warren St. which is the heart of Hudson's restaurants, antique shops (70!), and other shopping, including: 2 book stores, 2 art supply stores, clothing, home decor, etc. The proprietor and his brother were very nice and helpful with advice on restaurants & local info. However, this is not the type of B&B for people who want to hang out with the owners & other guests and hear all about the local attractions, but, if you want a nice, clean and quiet place to stay that is a short walk to the downtown, I highly recommend Union St. The "Dining" category above should have a N/A, as Union St. G.H. offers coffee, tea, and light snacks in the rooms but no meals. (There is also a self-serve beer and wine bar upstairs.) Hudson has a wide variety of restaurants, cafes, and breakfast spots. We had an excellent dinner at Ca'Mea (around the corner from Union St. G.H.) and a decent Mexican dinner the following night at Mexican Radio. Wonderful breakfast at Tanzy's, a cozy teapot-decorated space with great service and food. Nolita's is a nice breakfast/sandwich shop to start the day and stock up on lunch to go. For art and/or architecture fans, don't miss nearby Olana -the amazing home and estate of Frederick Church, one of the Hudson River School's most famous painters. This unique Persian-inspired mansion sits high on a hill overlooking the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains. Wonderful spot to paint!

We loved our stay at the Union Street Guest House! Our suite was delightful - clean, very comfortable (top notch beds, sheets, showers) and welcoming (coffee, tea, snacks, wine glasses). We spent the first 10 minutes just walking around finding all the beautiful treasures that someone with a wonderful eye chose. Extra bonus points for the private porch and friendly dogs. Definitely stay here if you are in Hudson. P.S. Walking distance to all great shops and restaurants! I gave one star for dining because there is no dining at Union Street but so many wonderful places nearby.

This is the best BnB in Hudson, hands down! The rooms are great, well appointed, clean, and cool and the owners are incredibly kind and helpful.
3.4 on April 17, 2013
We had a great weekend at the Union Street Guest House. If you are looking for a quiet, romantic getaway, this is your place! I did not rate dining, as they do not serve food. However, there is a full honor bar and an open kitchen if you wish to make any food yourself. Our suite also had a large fridge and a great coffee maker with locally roasted coffee available. It was just my husband and I in a room bedroom suite,so we had plenty of room for all of our belongings and to stretch out and relax. The rooms are decorated in a very modern/vintage way. Everything is just so well put together. I would recommend staying here for sure!
4.4 on April 08, 2013
There is no dining in the union street guest house. They just opened a new kitchen area if you wish to cook a meal there. However, Hudson is full of nice dining options. Check Grazin really authentic farm to table
4.6 on April 01, 2013
This is a great place to stay, BUT: They are clear that they're a guest house, not a B&B; refunds for cancellation are reportedly difficult at best; bring your own travel alarm - there was none in two different rooms. Please read the room descriptions. The rooms and suites vary greatly in amenities. This is an ideal location for dining in Hudson - a few short blocks from many fine restaurants. In all, this is a terrific value

We stayed in 'Treetops' suite and it was like staying in an Adirondack lodge. We had a separate bedroom which was very comfortable and clean, a large bathroom and a living room with a kitchenette. We were very happy and cosy with this setup. We would definitely recommend this establishment to others and would go back when we visit Hudson again.
4.8 on March 20, 2013
We stayed in the Thunderbird Suite with another couple on a cold weekend and couldn't have been happier. The decor was perfect, the coffee was great, the room was lovely. This is the spot.
4.6 on March 20, 2013
I've stayed here three times now, and have consistently been impressed by the care that the owners have taken to ensure that each room has its own ambiance.
4.8 on March 19, 2013
Chris was a half hour late getting there to register and install guests, but except for this hitch it was a wonderful stay. He is informed, witty, fun, and the room itself (really, a suite) was large, extremely well appointed, preternaturally clean, and outstanding in every way. The decor throughout--the lobby, the lounge with honor bar, our wonderful room--is uniformly quirky, interesting, intriguing, tasteful. We would stay here again anytime, and recommend it unreservedly. There is no dining there, but I gave five stars to the good quality booze in the honor bar.
3.8 on March 12, 2013
If you want a true "Hudson" experience, appreciate an eclectic mix of vintage decor/modern pieces and rooms with "personality" then you will like it here. I stayed in the TreeTops Suite and marveled at all the vintage memorabilia, cool selection of books/magazines and comforting details. I would definitely stay here again...very relaxing, private and good location. If you prefer a typical chain hotel/motel this place may not be for you. However, I prefer these types of places to typical hotels. Although they are often more $ than a typical hotel room, if God is in (these kinds of) Details, I do not mind the few extra bucks. Details: The suite I had was a mini vintage museum, so you can spend an hour just looking at everything. My personal favorite was the model airplane that hung in the corner of the bedroom! So cool! Several lights are on a dimmer control that you adjust yourself, including track lighting in the kitchen. Gourmet coffee, tea and several snacks in suite. Full size (modern) fridge, gorgeous sink and microwave. High end bath products. Plenty of paper towels, cups, bowls, flatware (even a corkscrew and wine glass). There is a flat screen TV in living room and bedroom with ample cable choices. And...amazingly enough...with all the knick knacks in this place I thought for sure I would find a lot of hidden dust but I did not. Practical Stuff: There was plenty of free parking along the street. They also have a couple free off-street spaces. The room I was in had several steps to climb (but that is part of the charm; not for a handicapped person, though). No phones in room...bring cell phone. WIFI reception is good but you might have to try a couple locations to get the best signal. I was fine in a chair closer to a window. Check out is 12 noon so you can "sleep in" without hearing maids cleaning rooms in "the hall" (a la "typical hotel" ;-)
4.0 on March 04, 2013
I stayed here over presidents day weekend in the Thunderbird suite. Rooms were spacious and each room had its own bathroom (which is key for two girls). Living room was cozy and beautifully decorated. Chris definitely makes you feel like you're staying over a friends house. Make sure to have a drink at the bar upstairs and play a few records. Union Street Guest House is right around the corner from great restaurants and antique shops or you can drive 20 minutes and hit the slopes. Will definitely be staying here again

The website's photos do not do this exquisit room justice. It is extremely spacious, comfortable, tastefully and elegantly decorated. Very clean, all linens very fresh. Perfectly situated on a quiet street (Union) just beyond main street (Warren Street). Walking distance from amtrak station.
4.8 on February 24, 2013
We stayed in the Library Suite for two nights in February and had a really great time. The guest house is right off the main strip on Warren, and we walked most everywhere during our stay. We also enjoyed ending the night in the lounge upstairs from the lobby.

The Union Street Guest House was adorable - as cozy and sweet as advertised on their site. The decor and laid-back personality of the House and Staff is exactly what you would want from a weekend in cozy Hudson, NY. There was a slight issue with the smaller room that I had booked, so on check-in the House manager told me that I had been upgraded to their much larger apartment suite at no additional charge. This place is charming and a great getaway, even in the winter. Highly recommend.
5 on January 30, 2013
My fiancee and I had a fantastic time at the USGH! Our room was upgraded from the Library Suite to the Thunderbird suite and we absolutely loved it. The staff was friendly and the entire set up at the USGH is cool and worth checking out. Dining in Hudson was good, but unfortunately a few of the places we wanted to check out were closed. That was understandable, as it was the middle of the week in January. Overall, we had a great time and we hope to return soon.

This is the second time we stay at the same room, love it!

Hands down the best place to stay in Hudson, NY. We stayed in the Treetops suite. Super charming and cozy. Chris is a great inn keeper and the lounge above the lobby is great for cocktail hour. We loved everything about it!
3.8 on January 04, 2013
I love the aesthetic here: warm, unique, simple, elegant. Not frilly or overdecorated like many other B&Bs. I also enjoyed the privacy the Union Street Guesthouse afforded: the innkeeper is friendly and helpful, but didn't intrude in any way. I look forward to visiting here again! Note: Union Street is a guesthouse, not a B&B, so no meals are served (hence the 4-star rating). I prefer this, as I'd rather enjoy the local restaurants when I'm visiting another town. That 4th star is for the honor bar above the lobby!
4.4 on January 02, 2013
This is a wonderful guest house. The rooms were large and adorably decorated. The bathrooms were spa like which I absolutely loved! Thank you Chris for a wonderful expereice for my family -thanks for providing a great place for my son to see and play in snow for the first time. Zilah and Mike

There were no dining facilities at the house. All restaurants were off campus.
5 on January 01, 2013
FUN! That's one of many descriptions I can give the Union Street Guest House and our stay there. Comfortable, funky, convenient, and FUN. Chris is a gracious host and helped me arrange a very sophisticated, yet FUN, bachelor party for my nephew. I will recommend USGH to anyone visiting the Hudson, NY area and I plan on staying there (or hanging out with Chris) on my next visit to Hudson. By the way there is no dining at the Inn, but the town has amazing restaurants.
5 on December 21, 2012
The room was beautiful, well-kept, clean and comfortable. They let us use the bar/lounge and the kitchen in the main house at will. There was amazing coffee and a coffee pot in the room, as well as wine glasses, ice bucket, and small fridge. Located in the city but not on the busiest street. We easily walked to the guest house from the train station, although there was a hill. Highly recommended. Since it didn't include breakfast, we were able to sleep in and better sample the various amazing food a block away.

Spent a thoroughly enjoyable weekend in Hudson NY thanks, in no small measure, to the exceptional level of comfort and service provided by the Union Street Guest House. Elegant yet funky accommodations with nothing overlooked. Great value. We will return. T&F - Barnard, Vermont

We stayed in the Treetops Room. I was very pleased to see how private it was, and it was very charmingly decorated. There were some nice little extras; loose tea and local coffee, a towel warmer, and a blanket on the back of a chair that made sitting and reading so inviting. The room was very clean, they paid attention to the details. It had a nice courtyard that would have been nice to enjoy in warmer weather. The lobby and lounge were very attractive with really funky antiques. The best detail were the two big friendly dogs in the lobby that made the place feel warm and familiar. (There was no dining available in the Union Street Guest House, but the provided lists of options within walking distance.

A friend and I took a weekend trip to Hudson NY to hit the antique shops after reading about it online. I discovered the Union Street Guesthouse through a Travel + Leisure Magazine recommendation and we weren't disappointed! There is much to recommend. The check in was easy and pleasant (we loved the dogs!) and the rooms are clean and well appointed. We were happily surprised because the price was so reasonable. IT's a guesthouse so there isn't any room service but frankly the town has such amazing places to eat there was no need to stay in. The decorating was artsy and quirky and the extra touches such as the L'Occitane bath soaps and lotions and the tea and coffee tray for breakfast were wonderful. We will definitely be visiting again! We've already recommended this place to friends.

We were lucky to have the Gallery Suite and it was charming, with interesting art, furniture, books and a well appointed kitchen. We did not eat here, however, so dining rating doesn't really count!!

We stayed in Hudson for my daughter's wedding. The Gallery Suite was much larger than I had expected and accommodated my family of 6 perfectly. It was charming and homey. I would definitely stay again! The manager was so pleasant. After check-in, we wandered about the Guest House Lobby to check out the place and were welcomed into the adjacent honor bar. We had a lovely conversation by the fire with the manager. The manager's service was great! I would have rated the service and cleanliness higher but on our second day, the wedding day, we were rushing around trying to get out the door when the cleaning staff came. I told her we would be there a little while longer and she smiled politely. After the wedding, we came back and nothing had been cleaned and there were no fresh towels & wash cloths. Reusing our towels was no big deal but we needed wash cloths. Also, we ran out of bathroom paper that day and there was none to be found. We did without the last night of our stay. Other than that...it was a perfect place for our wedding weekend.

We stayed in the Library Room at the Union Street Guest House and couldn't have been more pleased. Room was spacious, bed was amazing. It was exactly what you want if you are looking for a private, comfortable get away just steps away from town. We hope to get back there some day.
3.4 on October 04, 2012
A 3 o'clock check in time is somewhat late for people who may have evening events. There does not seem to be much flexibility, however our early arrival was accommodated. Only being able to communicate by email or message is difficult. I left several phone messages while in the lobby and sent an email, but received no reply. When I found a person they said they had received them all....but they did not answer them ....don't know why. Overall the visit was good, rooms were clean and well appointed.
4.4 on October 03, 2012
This is a lovely guesthouse in Hudson, New York. It is one block away from the "main drag" full of restaurants and interesting stores. Our suite faced the garden below and was very comfortable and relaxing. Would love to come back soon.
3.4 on October 03, 2012
The USGH is a great place to stay, there were six in our group and the suite we stayed in was huge, more than enough space. Aside from the bedrooms and beautiful bath, there was a parlor, living room big kitchen with a full size fridge and a sun porch. The rooms were nicely decorated and comfortable. I only have two faults, I opened the kitchen cabinets looking for some more plates and obviously they hadn't been opened in a while therefore dusty and needed a wipe not a big deal but that's why I only gave 2 stars for cleanliness, otherwise the bathrooms and bedrooms were very clean. Second small issue was the bed me and my partner slept in was super squeaky it was comfortable but every time one of us moved it made a racket. Overall very happy and we'll def return!
5 on September 29, 2012
Such charm in this place- everywhere you look. The rooms spacious- like an apartment size, and equipped with all that you could need. The lounge/ bar area was a great way to wind down from the evening and the record/ sound system was perfection.
1.0 on September 23, 2012
While the Union Street Guest House is conveniently located to the main street I would not recommend this to a friend or consider staying there again. Very poor public relations when dealing with guests. Unwilling to converse by phone, the staff was inflexible and unable to communicate except with unpleasant emails. The step at the entrance to our unit was unusually high and dangerous and resulted in a fall of one of the guests. The kitchen had a sink, some dishes and a refrigerator but no means of heating food (microwave or stove top). The bathrooms were clean and updated. However the style of the decor in the rest of the living room/kitchenette was not. The lamps on either side of the bed hung from the ceiling at a height which resulted in heads bumping into them when getting in and out of the beds. The air in the room was like the air in a dusty old antique shop. The owner's two rather large dogs were too "friendly" and left droppings on the path to our room and in the yard. The owner watched without making a move to apologize or help when my husband took the garden hose to clean the walk and his shoe.
3.2 on September 19, 2012
Nice place if your expectations are not too high. Cozy, historic house accommodations - almost like being in Europe. No food service - just a room. Staff was very helpful for finding good dining options late in the evening. Hudson is a gem and getting better and better, a nice jewel in the Hudson Valley.

We loved our stay at Union Street Guest House. Every room is charming, quirky and original, the location is fantastic and the staff went the extra mile to help us when we spilt red wine on our son's new shirt! Plus our son really loved the dogs. We highly recommend.

My wife, son and I were very comfortable in the Bainbridge Suite, and gave thanks to the great powers that be that we'd found the Union Street Guest House instead of yet another anonymous hotel. Decorated with funky antiques, filled with nice spaces, it just made it easier to be somewhere away from home and relax. The price was in our range, and the proximity to the Olana State Historic site was definitely a plus. A great place if you're going to be in the area!

My husband and I and a dear friend shared the Bainbridge Suite that included a lovely side porch, delicious locally brewed coffee, good noshes in the living area, charming decor, great location. What's not to enjoy? We'd do it again in a heartbeat! Not really a B&B since breakfast isn't part of the package, but the staff recommended a great spot close by, and that worked out beautifully.

The fellas who run this place pay incredible attention to detail. We recently stayed a night in the Library Suite. Everything was fun to look at. It was a beautiful day to walk around town, but I could have been just as happy holed up in the parlour with some tea and my book amongst all of theirs. Can't wait to return.
4.4 on August 27, 2012
We loved staying in the hip but comfortable Thunderbird Suite of the Union Street Guest House. So convenient to be able to walk to our fabulous dinner at Swoon Kitchen Bar and breakfast at Cafe Le Perche. We appreciated having a separate entrance through the artful garden. The large suite with kitchen area was perfect for us, made ice coffees to go & enjoyed looking at all the excellent magazines & books.

By far, the best dinner food and atmosphere: Helsinki Restaurant. Best croissant breakfast sandwich: Boulangerie! Enjoy the vibe of the Union Street Guest House. If staying at the Thunderbird Suite, be careful of the top step - it is gigantic!

Stayed in Tree Tops. Super comfortable bed! Cozy atmosphere. Great place to stay in Hudson! Had to put a rating next to dining for this survey, but there was no dining available at the Guest House. There are many great places to eat just a block away.

I should have realized this, but just didn't. Anyway, the room was charming and clean. There was wonderful coffee, but not so appealing "snacks" which consisted of packaged cookies and crackers.

My coworker recommended the Union Street Guest House, and I'm so glad she did. My boyfriend and I were delighted with our two-night stay, which was booked online on very short notice. The Library Suite was beautiful and comfortable. We happily enjoyed our morning tea/coffee and watched the Olympics in peace and quiet. Great service, and great value. I would happily stay there again and plan to tell friends about it. We were sad to leave.
3.6 on August 10, 2012
We enjoyed our stay very much. It was very hard to communicate with the staff, however - they do not return phone calls. Please note that the Dining category was not applicable, but I had to put something, so I put "met my expectatons."

Our stay at the Union Street Guest House would have been excellent except for one issue. We were woken several times throughout the night by a barking dog. That, in my opinion is totally unacceptable. The check-in service was good, the room was great ..... and the barking dog ruined our sleep. Too bad.

Great space. Very clean. Would go there again. Just wish they served some sort of breakfast.
4.0 on July 31, 2012
This guest house is just utterly brilliant. Great location, quiet street but just a couple of minutes walk from Warren St which is the main street in Hudson. It's a guest house, so no breakfast but it's so close to the cafes and restaurants, it was not a problem. They provide hot water and a small fridge and also some nibbles. The interior is a great combination of intelligent design and quirky execution, the look really reflects Hudson as a whole. The design is the star of the place and if you like modern, eclectic style then you will just love this place. We have stayed at a couple of the Soho House group hotels but for me, the interior here is better because it is the vision & creation of the owner rather than a corporate group, who is very gifted at what he does. It feels original, quirky & very comfortable. Was very clean, it felt secure and safe too. We had the Library Suite and just loved it, it was huge but cosy & again, we just loved the design. It had a separate sitting room. Sofas and beds are really comfortable. Bedroom is really quiet which we needed as my Husband is a very light sleeper. It is a great place and we thought really good value too, I cannot wait to go back.
3.6 on July 30, 2012
Mix rustic, quaint, comfort, and the early 1900's and you've got The Union Street Guest House. Got the stay in the Treetop guest room and loved every minute of it. So far from the artificial flavor of a great majority of B&B's that try but don't provide...these guys know what they're doing. Strongly recommend this B&B to anyone seeking a way out of the beaten path...

Love this place! Attention to details, decor, sheets, towels lovely. One of the best pots of coffee I've ever had (and I have had many pots of coffee!). The innkeeper could be a bit more welcoming but that will not keep us from returning if ever we get back to Hudson.

Girlfriend and I had a great experience at this establishment. We stayed in the Tree Tops Suite. The grounds were very well cared for - the decorum outside was something out of American Pickers without being over the top. What was most impressive was the cleanliness of our room. There is a ton of decorative items in it, and not a spec of dust or dirt anywhere. The only reason I have dining three stars is because there is no meals served here, and we knew that going in. Our room did have pre-packaged crackers/finger food and freshly ground coffee that was quite good. Location is just off Warren Street, with easy walking access to the major restaurants shops and parks. Overall we had an exceptional experience and I would stay here again, without hesitation.

The grounds were lovely and there was a fitness room that was so convenient. I had a super relaxing weekend here.

The Library suite was great, the bed the best ever, and nice to have coffee/tea service available upon arrival, but the variety of snack-packs (nice to have available) were chosen to rebut the "organic PC attitude" -- all fats and sweets. Not a negative, but quite notable. Then, we asked where was breakfast served -- NO BREAKFAST! Existing coffee/tea opportunity was it! The referral to local bakery/restaurant was fine, but a surprise. Almost asked for a discount due to the latter half of the "B-&-B" was missing, but then decided just to let others know. s

After drooling over their website for months, I finally had the opportunity to take a mini vacation and stay at Union Street Guest House. As soon as I arrived I knew I made a great choice. At check in I was greeted by Emma a delightfully large friendly Labrador (?) who made my boyfriend and I feel instantly welcome. Chris was cool and welcoming as well! We stayed in the Treetop Suite which was even better than it looked in photos. The suite was spacious, featured rustic and hip decor, comfortable bed, great coffee and tea, and very private. I honestly have not been that relaxed in such a long time. I will definitely return to try their other amazing looking rooms.
5 on June 03, 2012
My husband and I spend two nights in the Thunderbird Suite. The guest house owners kindly allowed our dog to accompany us (and we bent over backwards to make sure they didn't regret that decision!). The Thunderbird is roomy, clean and delightful. Someone with talent and taste has chosen vintage furnishings that create a feeling of homeyness, interest and comfort you just cannot get even in a fancy boutique hotel. We particularly appreciated the guest house's honor bar, located in an inviting upstairs lounge, and our host's easygoing welcome. We will certainly return, with pleasure. (Please note that although we've praised the "dining," since the review system requires that category to be completed, the guest house does not offer dining -- the town is full of excellent dining options, however, and there is a small but useful kitchen in the Thunderbird Suite at least.)
4.4 on May 28, 2012
This was a perfect place to use as a base for exploring the Hudson Valley. We rented the Thunderbird Suite and were totally thrilled with our experience. The suite was clean, roomy and well furnished, with an ipod/iphone player, coffee maker and a fridge to store our wine. Also a great bargain. Better, cheaper and more enjoyable experience than the Holiday Inn Express we stayed at after leaving Hudson. Highly recommended.

I've stayed at the charming Unions Street Guest House twice now, and I have so enjoyed my stays that I plan to schedule regular trips. Chris, the owner, shows great design sense and imagination in decorating the rooms, and I love the sense of modern touches with the historical. The guest house policy is to leave guests on their own, but I have no problem with this. Thoughtful touches in the rooms make this an exceptional getaway. I am a professional travel writer and blogger, and I look forward to my return.

This was our second stay at the Union Street Guest house and we can't wait to return!

This was our second stay at Union Street Guest House. Last visit we stayed in one of the Bungalows and this time around the Library Suite. We absolutely love this B+B and will continue to stay again and again! The owners are very nice and helpful with suggestions and the rooms are clean and spacious. The interior design is of Union Street Guest House is impeccable. I would absolutely recommend this spot for a stay in Hudson, NY!

I booked this on a romantic whim over a month earlier. We could not have been more pleased with the room that awaited us. We desperately needed a respite from the city and work.

We have been coming to the USGH for years and have always loved the accommodations, and we will continue to come here because it's a lovely, well-located place and one of the best values in town. Recently they added a "lobby", however, and it leaves a little to be desired. In the early days of USGH, one would just let oneself in, and unless there was an emergency, you never had contact with any staff. Frankly, I prefer the idea of a lobby, but not if the hours are only from 3 pm- 10pm! We had some questions during our stay, and there was never anyone at the reception desk - we had to call a cell phone number and wait to get a response (it took about 30-45 minutes). I suggest two things: (i) keeping the lobby (and the charming bar upstairs), but actually staffing it during normal business hours, and (ii) providing a contact number for off-hours where a person ACTUALLY ANSWERS the phone. You're in the hospitality business, after all! Also, though this is a minor point, the decor of the lobby is not up to the standard of the rest of the property. It was very cluttered and messy looking, and the owner's two gigantic dogs leap up at you when you walk in the door. Not great.

The room was fantastic with neat furnishings and a very comfortable bed. No dining there so the above rating doesn't apply, though the tea and coffee in the room was delicious.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back. Robin is a designer (www.robinbelldesign.com), and she was most impressed by how the owner has decorated the place. Believe me, coming from Robin, who can be pretty critical, that’s quite a compliment.

I stayed in the Tree Top suite for one night, by myself, and got a great, comfortable night's rest and relaxation for a competitive price. The room itself was like a small apartment decorated in a nostalgic "cabin" style that provided lots of interesting artifacts to contemplate as I wandered about the room. The inn also provides access to health equipment and an honor bar in the main building, steps from the suite. The host, Chris was friendly and helpful, and the inn was within walking distance to Hudson's really nice main street (Warren).

Overall, the Union Street Guest House was fantastic. I loved the attention to detail, the service, and the upstairs bar. What I didn't love was a clogged/slow draining sink and shower that did not work well. The bathroom in Treetops was disappointing. The shower/tub water handle is broken and there was 0 water pressure.

The only thing that would have made it a little bit better is to have cots available. There was plenty of room for one, and if people don't want to share a bed, that's another option. Nevertheless, a very nice stay.

We love this inn. The decor is charming. We've stayed in 2 different suites, the President's and the Thunderbird, and enjoyed them both. They were both spacious, clean, and comfortable. We were ready to move in.

We had friends from Israel visiting us on the spur of the moment and wanted to show off our favorite Hudson river town,...Hudson. We first went online and searched for B&Bs but they were very pricey. Then we found the Union Street Guest House. This is an exceptional place. Located a block off the main drag where all the antique stores are, it is on a very quiet street. The owners seem to have purchased several adjacent buildings and transformed them into a very unique boutique hotel. You check in at a front desk and get the keys to your room which is actually an apartment in one of the buildings. We rented the 3-bedroom for $200 a night for our six people. Four drove up from NYC during the day and another two joined us at night by train from Penn Station. The apartment contained: a living room, a kitchen, an enclosed sitting porch, a bathroom, and three bedrooms. Whoever decorated the place deserves recognition.There was a "presidential" theme complete with photos of presidents, books about the presidents, and antique store presidential Americana. The apartment was tastefully furnished and we particularly liked the modern art on the walls. We arrived on a very cold day and there was ample heat. We plan to return for a repeat visit. Well done!

My girlfriend and I had an incredible stay in the Treetops Suite in Union Street Guest House! Visiting from NYC, its cozy cabin-like feel was just what we were looking for. We marveled at the decor and the owner's tastefully handpicked collection of antiques, old toys and books, and ephemera which dotted each and every room. Not only was the atmosphere just right, we also found plenty of information on where to go in Hudson (restaurants, shops, etc) and had a nice time talking with the owner. We hope to visit again!

we stayed here for a few days leading up to Christmas as we just wanted a quiet, peaceful, relaxing little retreat. Staying at the Treetops suite provided just that. It was super quiet and really felt secluded. Only thing lacking was a little bit more hot water & pressure in the shower. I had already read some reviews about this issue so was somewhat prepared, but given that the weather was so cold, a cold shower was still a bit of a struggle to deal with. The owner is friendly and the dogs are friendly and harmless. You just have to let them get to know you and it's all fine. All in all, a comfortable stay and would definitely visit again.

The Gallery Suite was lovely--spacious, well furnished and decorated, and stocked with enough books, towels, blankets, tea, coffee, etc. that it was a pleasure to spend time in and we didn't have to ask for anything. The guesthouse is one block away from the main Warren Street drag--close to all shops and restaurants. It wasn't cheap, but it was a good value for the money. While the website was clear that they don't serve breakfast, I was sorry that they didn't--a simple continental breakfast would have made the stay perfect. We would definitely recommend it, with that one caveat about breakfast.

As frequent visitors to Hudson and the Catskills, my partner and I have stayed at a fair number of places in the area and are always on the lookout for funky, cool places to stay. With Hudson being the destination it is for furniture and design, it was a such a great experience to stay at a place that embraced the essence of the area. We stayed in the Thunderbird suite and was impressed with the amount of space, layout and how well the rooms were put together. Details like an amazing array of coffee table books and magazines to flip through, incredible bedding, a nicely stocked kitchenette that included freshly ground coffee, ensuite baths for both rooms...it really felt warm and inviting, like staying in someone's home. While we did not have time to enjoy the honour bar in the main house, a quick peek in the morning made us wish we did. For a couple of travellers who always want to check out new places, this is definitely a place we want to come back to again.

While the suites and rooms met our needs for our stay in Hudson for the weekend of my son's wedding, there was a feeling that the rooms could be better tended to for the price. One suite, where my 87 year old mother-in-law stayed had no heat, although the weather was quite chilly that weekend. The manager was nowwhere to be found. Although the guest house met our needs for that weekend, I discovered there were nicer places to stay, with much friendlier management.

Elliot stayed 2 nights at this guest house. Was very pleased with the amenities. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. The atmosphere was very relaxed. The rooms were spotless, and warm and very comfortable and quiet. There are other options in Hudson for lodging but this one is unbeatable by far.

We loved our visit to the Union Street guest house. the host was very welcoming. The whole place appears to be low key which makes it very relaxing, however, it is obvious that it is run by an experienced and professional staff. Every thing you need is there in a relaxed way with "Campy' decor placed with an artful eye. next time we want to stay longer to enjoy the gardens.

Had an excellent stay in the Library- spacious and private. It really was lovely. The teas and coffee that they provide in the room are exceptional, although the snacks (wasn't expecting there to be any, but there were some) were below standard. Overall, I was extremely pleased and would stay there again. Highly recommended.

Newly retired we decided to move to Hudson NY after visiting friends in the area. We were looking for a place to stay in Hudson for house hunting that was economical, clean, centrally located and would allow our 7 pound cockapoo to accompany us. Union St. Guest House fit the bill and gave us much more than our wish list. They readily accepted our well-behaved dog and we booked 2 nights to begin our house hunting. When we arrived, we gratefully learned that our suite was upgraded from the Tree Tops Suite to the Thunderbirds suite. OMG! The “room” contained two separate bedroom suites with spacious bathrooms and the living room kitchenette area was marvelous with great views. The amenities were fabulous as well: three flat panel screen TVs with cable, stereo system, full size refrigerator, local teas and coffee with brewers for both, dishes, silverware, plentiful towels, pillows and blankets. That’s the simple list but the best thing about Union St Guest House is ever-helpful Chris, and what he has done with the establishment. Restoring the space to its original glory would be incorrect. He has improved on the setting by furnishing each space with premium fixtures (Kohler throughout), newly painted walls including exposed brick and new flooring with interesting colors and textures and art pieces in every room. It was like being in a gallery with all kinds of artists represented. We will visit Union St Guest House often, as we look further for just the right house. You can’t go wrong.
4.8 on August 10, 2011
We stayed in the Treetop Suite and it was fabulous. It's actually a very kitchy (in the best possible sense) small apartment, and we were really happy that we were able to invite friends over for a drink because it was too wonderful not to share! Loved it and would go back in a heartbeat.
4.2 on August 07, 2011
The Library Suite has a sitting room with a variety of books and magazines. The bathroom looks recently renovated and is spotless, as is the entire suite. The huge (king-size?) bed might be too soft for some but I was very comfortable. There's also a daybed. You can make yourself tea or coffee with their supplies and equipment. This isn't really a B&B, since they don't serve breakfast but several cafes are in short walking distance. They don't change towels everyday unless you request it, which is fine, since it's "green" and I appreciate the privacy. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in The Bainbridge suite and I couldn't have been more pleased! The pictures of the rooms, which was what captured my attention to begin with did not even do the beauty and charm of the rooms justice. Everything was perfect, down the the tiniest detail. The rooms are decorated simply and tastefully and the rooms just glow at night. You can feel the history inside the walls of these simple yet beautifully appointed rooms. When you first walk in you smell the most fresh clean scent, like fresh washed sheets. I wish I knew what it was, I couldn't get enough of it. We really enjoyed sitting in the enclosed porch to have coffee in the morning and a cocktail late at night after dinner out on the town. The beds are so comfortable and the sheets are as soft as can be and also have a clean fresh scent. I like the 'guest house' vibe as you never see anyone, unless you need something, and are basically on your own. It feels more like you are renting an apartment than staying at a hotel or bed and breakfast. It is a much more independent stay experience. Everything in town was in walking distance and with perfect summer nights and a full moon shining down over the town while we were there in mid-July it couldn't have been more perfect. We had dinner in town and every place had really fantastic ambience and great food! Oh, and organic gourmet coffee was available in the room for your morning cup of joe with various snacks left for you to munch on which was a nice little treat. The coffee is amazing! We met the innkeeper Chris when we checked in, whom was very courteous and answered any questions we had, gave us our room key and we proceeded to have a very private, very quiet comfortable stay at the Union Street Guest House. I can't say enough good things about this place, other than the general vibe of the place is a really nice tranquil feeling. We will without a doubt stay there again. I don't know how anyone could not love this place.

I was very pleased with the accommodations. The Thunderbird Suite was an apartment, nicely decorated and very clean, with 2 BR and 2 bath. There is a kitchenette that could have been a bit better equipped (paper towels, more glasses), but overall great. The lobby area for the BB is very quirky and not indicative of what we found in the Suite.

I was delighted with the suite I shared with a friend at the Union Street Guest House last week. The suite was decorated with funky charm, which was in keeping with the area. We found the suite clean, and the bath towels and bath products quite lovely. With window air conditioners in each bedroom, the temperature was easy to control to our individual tastes. While the Union Street Guest House is an inn, not a B&B, there was fresh ground coffee, a selection of teas, and snacks available to us in our room. There was also a refrigerator stocked with two bottles of water and a bottle of wine. The inn also had a lovely garden. Our host, Chris Wagoner, was most helpful to us in answering the various questions we had about places to eat, see, etc. All in all, I felt that we received excellent value.
4.6 on July 30, 2011
Room was perfect, very private, simply furnished but couldn't have been more comfortable and appropriate. Having the local coffee and some welcoming snacks was excellent after a long car ride. The privacy allowed us to bring our puppy and not bother any other guests! Owner friendly and helpful when asked questions. We stayed in the Treetop Suite, again, a perfect place for my partner and I to escape to and feel like we were at home!!

We very much enjoyed our visit to the Union Street Guest House and Hudson, NY. The outside of the guest house was a little underwhelming - but when you enter the inn and gardens, it was very nice. The suite was very comfortable and had a nice feel to it. Had a very good night's sleep. Also enjoyed the friendly dogs. All in all it had a very comfortable and relaxing feel. We thought Hudson was a very interesting place with a lot of character - would definitely like to go back and explore the area some more.

This was an unusually lovely,well kept and spacious unit. It would have been nice to have an on the premise home made breakfast, as done by most B$B's. Otherwise, I highly recommend this guest house ,which would be very comfortable for 4-6 people for a long stay.

We stayed in the Library room which was beautiful, well appointed, and much larger than expected. Nice little touches around the room. Weird window which was covered but faced another inside room. The Inn was actually nicer than the town, but we were there for a party in a nearby town, you could basically do the town of Hudson in an hour. Not impressed with the town but if you are going I would recommend Union Street Guest House.

Just spent the weekend at Union City Guest House. When possible I try to stay at B&B's or funky hotels or rent condos/houses. My husband is not big on B&B's but loved the guest house concept. We stayed in the Library Room, lots of books, seating in the living room, a spacious bedroom behind the large french doors and a great bathroom. Everything was sparkling clean which can't be easy given the age of the house and the many interesting items all around. I appreciated the tea, coffee, water, snacks and just enough dishes to manage the little food we brought. The bed was one of the most comforable I've ever slept in and the linens were beyond soft and luxurious. Location is great. We were able to walk everywhere in town. Street parking was ample and there were plenty of signs around explaining the alternate side of the street parking overnight. I rated the service as "met expectations" because it did just that. After reading some of the reviews I felt I got what was expected. Check in was efficient and friendly, all my questions answered. There were so many helpful note cards around our room anticipating any questions we might have so we did not need any additional service. Would definitely stay here again - in fact, I'd love to have a reason to come back and try every room/suite/bungalow.

To be honest, the Union Street calls itself a "guest house." It offers no services such as making beds and taking out the trash. You serve yourself. It offers no breakfast. However, it charges more than what it should for its basic rooms with no service. It appears there is no pride of ownership or service. Two chairs in the Treetop unit have stuffing coming out and the room is a hodge pot of furniture and odds and ends. I will never return.
4.2 on July 03, 2011
Union Street Guest House is completely charming. It's the perfect combination of comfort and tasteful decor in a quiet location around the corner from all the wonderful shops and restaurants of Hudson. I highly recommend it.

I think the experience of any place to stay has as much to do with the preferences and expectations of the person staying there as with the place. If you want to stay somewhere that is unique and will become part of your memories of a very specific trip, if you prefer privacy, and/or if you have fond memories of staying at the more "hands off" style guesthouses in Europe, you will probably love your stay at the Union Street Guesthouse as much as I did! If you want a full breakfast, someone to carry your bags, room service, etc, you might really be looking for a B&B or hotel rather than a Guesthouse. Some of the issues I see in other reviews I think are a function of being in an actual historic building rather than a newly-built hotel. (ie an old wooden porch might smell like old wood when it rains, older buildings do not have the same kind of sound insulation between rooms that new buildings have, etc.) During our stay, everything was very stylish and clean, and it felt like renting our own little "apartment" for a couple days! So much more space than any hotel of similar (or greater!) price, so much more individual and memorable. We had fun showing the space to the relatives we were visiting, and would certainly stay there again and recommend it to others. Thanks!

Our room (The Bainbridge Suite) was amazingly large with two full sized bedrooms, a sitting room and porch. Plus a private entrance and small fenced in lawn area (good for kids or dogs, if they allow them). The service wasn't below average, but just lacking. We arrived at the hotel earlier than their 3pm check in and found no one at the inn and had to wait almost until 3:30 to check in. It wouldn't deter me from staying there again, but I'd arrive a little later rather than expecting a prompt check-in.
3.6 on June 16, 2011
We were very impressed with the thoughtfulness and attention to every detail. Just about everything you might need for a five star hotel stay was present, including good and plentiful coffee and a good coffee maker to make it in. The decorating was eclectic on steroids but fun and not offensive. The only negative was the front desk which was rarely manned, not very helpful IF you actually found someone there, and the two large dogs who accompanied whoever was in the office, although harmless, liked to bark a lot and scared my wife.

We booked a room here last minute (i.e. at 4pm on the day of check-in). Everything is done online, so it was easy for us to book from our iphone on our way to the town. Great rooms, cute town. We were initially only staying there for one night as a pit stop on our way to our next destination, but we liked the apartment and the town so ended up staying an extra night. The proprietor, Chris, was very accommodating. He is also an interior decorator and did all the design work in each guest house. Ours was so cute - very vintage warehouse modern. Loved all the decor & details. Two good-sized en-suite bedrooms, a living room, mini-kitchen, and deck. It is a guesthouse, not a B&B, which means that once they check you in, they leave you be and you get privacy. None of the chitter chatter / "friending" you get at B&Bs, which suited us fine.

I stayed here for only one night, during Memorial Day weekend. We rented a 2 BR suite that was completely charming. The beds were clean and super comfortable, with nice bedding. And, the whole place was so charming, a great combination of thigs like antique pattered china and ecletic modern/60s style decorating. The bathrooms were luxurious - with great towels and Aveida products and the whole place was equipped with everything a person could want, including coffee for the morning. The location is one block from the main street - right next to wonderful shops and restaurants. We had massages - and only had to walk a block to the spa. There is no dining option on-site. One thing I would have paid for was the option to purchase a bottle of wine in the room. Overall, I would go back there anytime!

The "Bainbridge Suite" was charming and much more than I had anticipated. It was rustic in the "porch" sitting area, with an Adirondack feel. There was some mustiness (not surprising given the amount of rain this Spring) and unfortunately some other unpleasant odor toward the back of the enclosed "porch" space. This can be easily addressed. Inside, another little parlor area was cozy and comfortable. I appreciated the quality coffee and teas...and good quality pots! The small refrigerator in the cabinet was adequate. The bedrooms, including mattress and linens, were very comfortable (a must!). Antique decorations throughout, particularly the charming black and white "camp" photos, added to the charm. I appreciated the updated bathroom fixtures. Moisture in the bathroom could be ameliorated simply by lowering, from the top, the window between the bathroom and the porch area. I left after only one night, wishing that I had been able to stay for several more. I am recommending the Union Street guesthouse to all who plan to visit the Hudson, NY area. (Thank you, Chris!)

Arrived at 3 on a rainy day and everything was ready. Rooms were large, bright and nicely decorated. The "courtyard" garden was beautiful even in the rain. Couldn't really call it a B&B since breakfast consisted of a coffee pot, tea pot and small bags of snacks. It did have a kitchen area so you could fix your own breakfast. Centrally located in town so a good location.

There was no heat and we couldn't contact anyone, despite three separate numbers, to help fix it. It really isn't a bed and breakfast, as it doesn't offer food. The internet wouldn't work. All in all, it was DEFINITELY NOT worth the money we had to pay for it. When we tried to address certain issues, the person in the lobby was very defensive. And we couldn't leave and stay somewhere else because they pre-charge for the entire stay and have a strict cancellation policy.

Recently stayed one night at the "Guest House" with family, as an alternative to a very poorly reviewed Quality Inn a few miles away. For $425 for a 3- bedroom unit, I expected a cleaner and more comfortable place. This is not a B&B - no breakfast provided. While there was a coffee pot in the unit, and some beans, the tea canisters were empty. There was ham & cheese in the fridge, dated a month before our stay. Obviously, the place isn't very thoroughly cleaned.

I just had my sixth stay at union street guesthouse--a pleasure as always. I love the vintage yet posh style of their apartments, everything is very private, the snacks and soaps are lovely. hudson has lots of great food (swedish at da ba, american and artisanal at swoon, gourmet pizza at baba louie's, margaritas at mexican radio) and the town is the perfect blend of unpretentious and chic (you can walk down warren street in chuck taylors or the latest burberry shearling ankle boot and both fit in perfectly). my greatest pleasure is being in a guesthouse that should have appeared on the cover of the now defunct domino magazine. if you love interiors you'll know what I mean. I have stayed in the gallery suite three times, and also in bainbridge, thunderbird, and treetops. in usgh's apartments, you'll see a gorgeous antique sideboard next to an item that looks flea market-y in the best possible sense. all the paint colors are subtle and surprising. just what a weekend away should be--a soothing, lovely escape.

Wow! We could never get tire of staying in our very own kitsch, tree house cum log cabin. From the moment my girlfriend and I climbed the stairs to treetops, we knew we were going to love it. Stunning décor, a HUGE bed and just the most wonderfully interesting place. We would definitely stay again.

My husband and I stayed in the Treetops while looking to buy a house in the area. We loved everything about the room. The decor was adorable, the giant bed was super comfortable, the room was very clean and private and the most lovable dogs greet you at check in. There were little snacks and water in the fridge, delicious local coffee on the counter and a helpful guide to the area. We would love to return to this place, but sadly the internet did not work at all which was a top priority when we were choosing where to stay. My only other complaint was the very limited supply of hot water. It ran out about 3 minutes into my shower which really wasn't too pleasant being that I had just come in from a very chilly 6 degree evening stroll through town. My husband also had the same problem when he showered the next morning.

I would say I am a tough guy to please when it come to staying somewhere. I often prefer a fancy hotel with all the bells and whistles. That said, I thought the Union Street Guest House was great! We stayed in a bungalow type unit aptly named the Treetops. It was a great space that’s décor was interesting to live in and comfortable to stay in. Great area, steps away from great shops and restaurants. Restaurants and hot spots are all around. We went to Swoon kitchen bar, I had heard a lot of great things about it but I must say for me it was a bit of a disappointment. Chris the innkeeper and really nice guy mentioned to us as we played with his dogs in front of a great fire that Club Helsinki was a spot to check out, he was right, a lively space that had a great atmosphere. Chris also mentioned that The Red Dot was a great place for Sunday brunch…also correct. If I had to recommend one thing, it would be that they put tissues in the room. But that’s not a big thing. I would recommend this place and area to others for sure. ~Lew

We stayed in the Treetop Suite and it was very cozy and quiet. The layout of the common area could be a little more "cozy" though. There are two chairs and a lamp to read, have morning coffee and chat but a nice sofa would be better for some snuggling. Although it isn't a Bed and Breakfast, we still give it 5 stars for dining because of the little kitchenette and accessibility to restaurants. This is a great little getaway location and the owners were very nice and hospitable. Looking forward to visiting again.

We stayed in the Library Suite which was clean, comfortable and warm. It was freezing outside so coming into this warm cozy suite was more than sweet! There was freshly ground coffee beans, crackers, cookies and an assortment of teas. The bedding and towels were fresh smelling and clean. The king size bed was very comfortable along with it's soft comforters and sheets. There were extra pillows as well. Our stay was extremely private, we never saw anyone nor did we hear any disturbing noises. We never felt uncomfortable or unwelcome. All was perfect.

The room was lovingly furnished and super clean. Very comfortable bed, great books, amazing bathroom with transom window - great light. It was like staying at the home of a dear (and classy) friend. Highly recommend.

Union Street Guesthouse is the perfect place to stay if you are traveling with alot of friends or family. Me and 3 of my girlfriends drove up to Hudson from NYC during the snowstorm in early January (like ya do) and had an amazing time, snow and all. Hudson is the perfect weekend getaway. We stayed in the Gallery Suite, which had a great living room, kitchen, and super cool porch. We had plenty of room and could come and go as we pleased. It's just down the street from Warren Street, so you have easy access to all of the antique shops and restaurants. Highly recommend.

My wife and I had the perfect stay at Union Street. Warm, cozy and so interesting. There wasn't a second that we didn't feel totally taken care of. We walked (even in the snow) to all the restaurants and shops we wanted to go. We already booked another stay! And, I love the two dogs that waited my visits to the lobby. So adorable. Jason Wood

This is an excellent Bed and Breakfast, the rooms are decorated in an excellent eclectic country manner and are clean and comfortable, I have stayed with them several times and have never had any complaints, in fact only compliments. Unfortunately when we stayed over the new years holidays they were renovating under our room and it was extremely noisy and drafty, the entire room vibrated and there was pounding on the floor and walls, the room should not have been rented under these conditions it reflected a poor choice on behalf of the management. So unfortunately I suggest guests call first to make sure that there will not be ongoing work that will ruin your stay...otherwise this is usually a great place.

Spent New Year's Eve at the Union St Guest House. Booked the Library Suite and was asked at check-in to move to the Bainbridge. Not sure this was an "upgrade" as 2 queen beds in 2 small rooms was not one king bed in one large room as we had originally agreed upon and its enclosed porch was unusable in the winter weather. As a guest house w/out services, I brought our breakfast and was able to keep it in the fridge provided. Used the coffee maker and good ground coffee but I don't think the tea canisters had been looked at in weeks. One smelled like a black tea (unlabeled), another like tobacco and the third was unidentifiable. I suggest you bring your own if you are a tea drinker. Asked for ice as soon as we arrived and received it promptly. Mid 50's furniture and cute accessories fits Hudson's spirit well. The super soft towels and bedding, loads of magazines and Aveda bathroom amenities made for a slightly luxurious experience. I left the key in a bowl on the front desk at check out as there was no one around at noon. All in all, a good time was had (dinner at Swoon) but next New Years Eve I will try a different venue.

Lovely guest house with a fabulous, spacious room located in the heart of town. Didn't experience meals so no review there. Would certainly visit again.

Everything was great except the temperature. It plummeted to below freezing that night and there was no thermostat in the room! I did call the office and the woman was very apologetic and told me that the thermostat was actually located in another room and they must have turned it down. So she came over and took care of it. But that was not very well thought out, to say the least!!

Location is everything and Union Street had that. Great stay from the moment we checked in, had the Treetop room and it was quiet and isolated from main house. Close to all, park and walk. Definately worth it, and Hudson a great place for a day trip aor overnight.

We enjoyed the privacy offered by the Union Street Guest House. We had all the necessary amenities without having to ask. The library suite was comfortable and roomy. A great location for walking to restaurants in the area.

We had a really nice stay here (just one night). It was very spacious, clean, and comfortable. What really sets it apart is that it feels like a 'wing' of a house. We stayed in the Bainbridge Suite (I don't know what the rest of the house is like). It had two rooms (though they were only double-beds), a sitting area ("parlor"), a full, private bathroom, and a period-furnished enclosed porch (it was too cold the weekend we were there to use it but when it's warm out it would be nice to sit in). It was one block from Warren Street (the 'main' street in town) so it was walkable to any restaurant. btw - we had two great meals - dinner at Swoon (scallops and duck breast) and brunch at Red Dot (potato and onion latkes) - they were both terrific.

This room looked great on line and great in person. But after my husband took a 5 minute shower, mine was cold. When we went to tell the desk person, she offered nothing. The wifi didn't work in the room, which also got no response from the desk person. We asked her for directions to a local attraction. She seemed very helpful by printing out the google maps directions. Only after we didn't arrive at our destination did we realize that she had looked up the wrong place- a park instead of a sculpture park.

We stayed in the Library Suite. The room was spacious and matched the town perfectly. We plan to go back and try another.

My husband and I spent two nights at the Union Street Guest House. It is, as billed, a guest house so visitors should know that there is no daily housekeeping. We met the owner who was very friendly upon check in and then we had privacy for the duration of our stay which we loved. It felt relaxed and we were free to come and go without making B&B small talk. We stayed in the library suite and would definitely recommend. It's spacious with a library sitting room, separate bedroom and clean well appointed bathroom. We appreciated the snacks, teas, coffee and water provided in room as well as the small refrigerator for our use. The guest house is in a perfect location for walking all through the small town of Hudson and we loved coming and going from our little oasis as we explored the town (we recommend Swoon Kitchen Bar, P.M. wine bar, Strong Tree for coffee and Verdigris for tea & breakfast).

If only the air conditioner has been a little quieter, it would have been near perfect. ( I say that only because there is no such thing as absolute perfection in this universe.) And, the price was quite reasonable.

Unique and comfortable rooms, priced reasonably. The staff is extremely accomodating and is happy to go above an beyond.

Thanks to eveyone at Union Street Guest House for the wonderful time we had in Hudson! The room was absolutely emaculate, and although they are still completing construction, it only added to the charm of the place! We'll be back!!

This is a unique place in that it is very private. Wonderful room with really comfy bed, high end sheets and pillows. The items in the bath were excellent. We got to make our own coffee in our room which was fresh ground. Loved it!
