Hotel named after Bob Dylan opens in Woodstock

A hotel complete with a Volkswagon Van in the driveway and Bob Dylan's name on the door has opened in Woodstock, N.Y. The Hotel Dylan is the brainchild of Paul Covello, who bought and converted a defunct restaurant, just southwest of the famed town where Dylan and The Band recorded and not far from where the historic musical festival, Billboard reports.

The hotel is the centerpiece of a complex designed by Cortney and Robert Novogratz.

As Billboard writes: "The hotel's rooms are characterized by what Covello calls the Novogratz's patented "bohemian sophistication — a great vibe, clean and crisp." Elliott Landy's photo of The Band from the cover of Music From Big Pink is on the wall, folk-art rugs on the floor, and a pattern of arrows on the walls, capturing the area's history back to the days of the Native American tribes who prized the mountains as their spiritual home."
