The Madison at Fire Island Pines

The Madison at Fire Island Pines | Fire Island, New York |  Yes boys you read right, the winter is over and the first weekend of Fire Island is here, very crowded to my surprise. I am staying at The Madison Hotel at Fire Island Pines, the premium lodging option in the island when talking about hotels. A small boutique charming hotel, located only steps away from the beach, the harbor and all the entertainment. My previous experiences in Fire Island were having a share in a house, but hey nothing like the perks of a hotel, breakfast, housekeeping, WiFi, Cable TV to better enjoy your stay. (picture below is the main entrance to the hotel).
Situated in one of the most beautiful gay hot spots in the United States, only 2 hours and something away from New York City (who would think right), sixty seconds walking from the ferry station of the Pines and sixty seconds from the beach, and exclusive compound that’s a world away.
Rooms are divided in three categories: Madison Rooms (the smallest ones) located within the main house, Garden Rooms (the one I am staying at and the one on the video below) with all glass doors and great views to the pool, and the Penthouse Rooms (the largest rooms) on the second floor with private balconies. Unfortunately the hotel was completely sold out (yes being the first weekend), so I was not able to take videos or photos of the other room types. All rooms feature private bathrooms, iPod docks, WiFi access, Cable TV, large flat screen TVs, air condition/heat and fans.

While your stay at The Madison, you will also be able to enjoy the outdoor pool area, roof deck with great panoramic views, hot tub, massage therapist by appointment.

Weekends are high on demand, when all New Yorkers run away from the heat of the city to lay on the beach, enjoy the Low/High Tea scene and some others, go wild and crazy at The Pavilion disco in the island. Fares are much more accessible during the week, for those looking for a quiet time, to relax at the pool, enjoy the beach and some of the gourmet options around. Fire Island is a great destination for locals to getaway and for foreigners to see a different side of New York, while mingling at one of the TOP hot spot gay summer destination of the United States.
