Travel: The Williamsburg Hotel, Brooklyn

Published

on


Up until a couple of years ago, finding a descent hotel in Williamsburg was pretty tough. There was of course always The Wythe leading the charge opening in 2012, but over the past year, North Brooklyn has welcomed a couple new hotels all within walking distance of each other. The latest is the aptly named Williamsburg Hotel.

Located in North Brooklyn, in possibly the easiest location to get in and out of Manhattan, the hotel features 150 guest rooms spanning the eight-story brick, Corten steel, and glass structure, elegantly designed by London design firm Michaelis Boyd Studio (Soho House Berlin & Babington House) to pay homage to Williamsburg’s industrial past.

In addition to the usual comforts of hotel living, The Williamsburg will offers up its own vegetable focused restaurant – Harvey, as well as rooftop pool and lounge, an expansive grand ballroom and three distinct bars, one of which is housed inside a retrofitted water tower, how very Brooklyn of them. Hotel guests can also borrow one of their custom bikes, or hitch a ride on their adorable pink Tuk-Tuk.

While much of the amenities weren’t ready when we stayed here earlier this month, the hotel it self was quite impressive to say the least. Housing five different room-types, we had the opportunity to stay in one of their Queen rooms, which featured floor to ceiling windows, a private balcony with a view of Brooklyn and Manhattan (somewhat of a rarity in NYC), and a rather impressive bathroom. Complete with classic white marble and Waterworks brass hardware, the bathroom featured toiletries by Brooklyn based brand Apotheke you’ll definitely want to pocket before you leave.

While much of the food and beverage program is still to come, we highly recommend pulling up a seat at the bar for a cocktail on your next visit and look forward to heading back again soon.
