Hotel Dylan features 11 rooms with names that evoke the Flower Power era and the famous Woodstock Festival, including "The Jimi," "The Joplin," "The Cocker," "The Roadies," "The Van" and "The Hippie Chick."

 

The hotel's largest room is called The Band Suite, named after the influential Americana outfit that served as Dylan's backing group early in its career, and recorded the legendary Basement Tapes with the folk-rock icon in Woodstock.  Daily prices for standard rooms are $189 on weekdays and $219 on weekends, while the suite will run you $249 during the week and $289 on weekends.

Each room also features a high-quality turntable, and a selection of vinyl albums can be borrowed from the front desk.  In addition, a variety of famous pics taken by official Woodstock Festival photographer Elliott Landy decorate the hotel's walls.  The hotel also hosts a series of music-related workshops and other events.

A Hotel Dylan representative tells ABC News Radio that owner Paul Covello is planning to open an intimate concert space at the facility, as well as a pub and restaurant that will serve dishes featuring locally grown and produced ingredients.
