Attendees of Sleepover Brooklyn will be accommodated at The Williamsburg. Located on the former scrapyard stretch of Wythe Avenue, this 150-room newbuild hotel from developers Heritage Equity Partners features design by London-based Michaelis Boyd. Largely owing to its brick-clad façade accented with glass and Corten steel, the building assimilates seamlessly with its industrial surroundings. Guestrooms have double-height ceilings, reclaimed oak parquet flooring and Art Deco bathroom fixtures.
Housed in a converted 1901 redbrick factory building a stone’s throw from McCarren Park, The Wythe’s style is industrial meets contemporary. New York architect Morris Adjmi has worked his magic, sensitively renovating the existing building, and adding a three storey glass box to the top of the building. This 72-room boutique features concrete floor slabs, exposed wooden beams and a plethora of custom furniture built by local craftspeople using wood salvaged from the original building.
Opening in 2018, the first Hoxton on North American soil is set on the site of the former Rosenwach factory, the maker of the iconic wooden water towers that scatter the New York skyline. It will have three restaurants, including terrace and courtyard spaces, and a rooftop bar with views across Manhattan. The hotel’s 175 guestrooms will feature brass details throughout, in contrast to raw concrete ceilings and plush velvets. Local ceramics can be found on the shelves; books are curated by local residents, and bespoke bed linen has been created by Dusen Dusen.
The William Vale
Rounding off the Williamsburg trio (set to become four upon The Hoxton opening) is The William Vale. Designed by Canadian practice Studio Munge and architects Albo Liberis, The William Vale features an abundance of artwork, including a commissioned piece by Brooklyn artist Marela Zacarias. The hotel’s rooftop bar, Westlight, is its crowning glory, with breathtaking views spanning the Manhattan skyline.
1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge
Nestled beneath the Brooklyn Bridge in DUMBO, 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge channels upcycled materials and artwork to tell a story of the area’s past. Furniture is made using recycled factory pinewood from the Coney Island boardwalk, Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and Bronx-grown trees, while the rooftop plunge pool offers Manhattan skyline vistas and a glimpse of Lady Liberty.
