Located at the prime corner of Wythe Ave and North 10th St. in Williamsburg Brooklyn, this eight-story, 150-room brand new Hotel strikes the perfect pitch between spectacular service and style. The guest rooms are richly tiled-and-textured with authentic reclaimed materials, and the lobby bar and lounge area has a very classy-cozy feel. This mid-winter, the highly anticipated Harvey restaurant by Chef Adam Leonti will make its debut.
The Williamsburg Hotel was designed by Michaelis Boyd (Soho House Berlin, Babington House UK) with a nod to the neighborhood’s industrial past by using brick, glass and Corten steel in its construction. The dramatic entrance through cascading stairs leads into a soaring bar whose art installation stops you in your tracks. Street artist Eric Rieger has strung thousands of strands of multi-colored yarn which crowns the bar. Other design highlights include custom toile-inspired wallpaper designed by Beastie Boy Mike Diamond featuring quintessential Brooklyn scenes and figures—from a Nathan’s Famous hot dog to a group of Hasidic Jewish men, to the late, great Notorious B.I.G.
Guest rooms feature floor-to-ceiling sliding glass acoustic windows with Manhattan, Brooklyn and East River views, and design schemes vary from white-washed timber walls to deep grey distressed finishes with bespoke leather, brass, marble, and textured details at every turn. Rooms are thoughtfully designed with elements like a sitting table doubling as a tray for room service, open-windowed showers to create a loft-like space. Upgrades available to a room with a terrace with amazing views.
