On Brooklyn’s Williamsburg waterfront, Wythe Hotel is a 72-room boutique hotel with an industrial aesthetic. A cooperage dating back to 1901, this factory heritage has been celebrated and revived in exposed brick, cast iron columns, simple furnishings and floor-to-ceiling black steel windows looking out on to the Manhattan skyline.
Updated for the 21st century, the building has been topped with three storeys constructed out of glass and aluminium (complete with open-air bar), a 50-foot-tall neon-lit ‘HOTEL’ sign, heated concrete floors and all of the technology you could need (and want) for a stay in the city.
Run by the team behind some of Williamsburg’s best eateries – Marlow & Sons and Diner – this hotel is worth a visit as much for its restaurant – Reynards – as it is for its incredibly stylish bedrooms. Serving seasonal, bistro-style dishes in a communal dining room set under low vaulted ceilings, this is a hotel that doesn’t treat food as an afterthought.
