A contemporary harbor-side retreat, blends modern luxury with local history. Located along the nationally recognized North Shore Heritage Trail, Danfords Hotel & Marina is in the heart of historic Port Jefferson, New York and is within walking distance of the harbor, one of the most popular waterfront villages in the region.
The super-luxury 86-room boutique hotel, which overlooks the Long Island Sound, features high-end amenity-rich rooms and VIP suites. Beautifully textured fabrics in vibrant colors offset by muted yellows have been paired with nautically-inspired accents and artwork depicting exuberant sails. Signature design elements include balconies with panoramic waterfront views, fireplaces, plush bedding, 32-inch flat screen televisions, oversized chairs, personal workspace and wireless Internet access. Carrying the seaside theme into the baths, large vanities with marine fittings, new contemporary lighting and large luxurious spa-inspired showers with built-in seats complete the decor. The thoughtfully executed design concept creates an airy, cozy and inviting environment for guests. The hotel also boasts an on-site gift shop, and 24-hour business service and fitness center. Rates begin at $179 per night and are based on season and availability.
Executive Chef Jonathan Levine spearheads culinary efforts for Danfords Hotel & Marina. He brings a unique repertoire of knowledge and skills to guests' plates with experience in top establishments in the Caribbean, Miami, Manhattan and Las Vegas. Chef Levine's prior posts include Wynn Las Vegas, the only luxury hotel and casino resort awarded Forbes Five Star, AAA Five Diamond and Michelin's Five Red Pavillions; award-winning Restaurant Guy Savoy at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas; and The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Puerto Rico.
A Feast for the Senses
At the new WAVE Seafood Kitchen, Chef Levine applies a "farm to table" concept with fresh local produce and regional seafood as the driving force. Its name plays off the panoramic views of the Long Island Sound seen from most every table. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, WAVE provides a casual, yet trendy dining experience featuring a white baby grand piano and a gallery of photographic seascapes. The chic 40-seat lounge is an ideal meeting spot for drinks or late-night fare while the outdoor dockside deck offers al fresco dining.
