This is the first of 2 hotels I am really excited to feature today. The first is the Wythe Hotel. Here are some details: Located in the heart of Brooklyn, Wythe Hotel is an 8-story hotel on the Williamsburg waterfront. Built in 1901, this former textile factory has been meticulously converted into a 72-room hotel offering service and amenities yet to be seen in the borough, while the building’s industrial character – like its concave corner entrance, original pine beams, masonry, arched windows and cast-iron columns – has been beautifully preserved. Throughout the hotel, guest rooms feature 13’ high original timber ceilings, oversized windows, radiant heat concrete floors, seasonally sourced mini-bar offerings, custom amenities and works by local artists. Many rooms, including band rooms, bunk rooms and suites, boast floor-to-ceiling views of the Manhattan skyline and East River. In a nutshell this is my dream home in hotel form. From it’s location, to the funky industrial/vintage light fixtures, exposed brick walls, vintage bathroom to die for, Papa Bear and Thonet chairs, massive walls of barrister bookcases….
You had me at the exposed brick! Such an incredible hotel.
I love these kind of spaces with these red bricks walls!
Me too. My ideal house in hotel form. I've long suspected that my taste is more commercial than domestic and this confirms it.
Perfect timing. This post just generated business for the hotel — oh, if only it was *my* business! I'll just have to live vicariously through my cousin…
What is the second hotel?
I am a reader from Washington, DC and I travel to NYC regularly for business and pleasure. THANK YOU for the two lovely features today on NYC hotels! Typically I come to your website for eye candy, but today it is eye candy + something more practical 😉
I saw the hotel photographed by Brian Ferry in his blog. It's a wonderful space.
I'm speechless…great stuff
