Looking for a Wes Anderson-worthy hotel stay right in the United States? Look no further than the bright and whimsical The Hoxton, Williamsburg (@thehoxtonhotel). Housed in a former Rosenwach water tower factory, the first American hotel by the esteemed hotelier boasts sweeping views of the East River and Manhattan skyline, from bustling Brooklyn.
Each of the 175 rooms boast industrial-chic surroundings in keeping with the area’s history – brass and concrete detailing, black-and-white tiled bathrooms with the hotel’s own Blank soaps and walk-in showers, plus custom Dusen Dusen (@dusendusen) linens and jewel-toned headboards. According to the playful designer, the black and white motifs of steps, circles, and ladders subtly – and cleverly – spell the letters in “Hoxton.”
The lobby offers bookshelves lined with coffee table books you’d actually want to read, a vintage-inspired coffee bar that’s currently closed due to safety restrictions, as well as a variety of spaces for remote workers. For those who prefer to work from the comfort of their rooms, guests will find a mid-century floating wooden desk, complete with a portable Roberts speaker.
Need a place to safely and securely gather with friends or coworkers? Book a room in “The Apartment,” the property’s meeting and events space. A day spent in any of the five bright and uniquely-designed rooms guarantee everything your laboring heart desires – natural daylight, WiFi, freshly-brewed coffee plus a fridge filled with water and soft beverages, and even homemade baked pastries and treats.
For now, the on-site dining options – Klein’s and Winterly (Summerly) – are temporarily closed for in-person dining until further notice. But, once they open back up, you’ll want to head to Klein’s, the wine cellar located in the lobby, for bespoke cocktails and bites that don’t require a fork and knife. For dinner and a nightcap, book a table at Winterly (Summerly) on the roof. There, you’ll find breathtaking views of Brooklyn and Manhattan, seasonal dishes, and delightful cocktails. For now, get a taste of this rooftop haven via takeout and delivery – and yes, they have cocktails to go!
Located on Wythe Avenue, this neighborhood gem is surrounded by upscale restaurants and shops. Only a 5 minute walk and three stops on the L train from Manhattan, you’ll want to make this your home base for your next stay in New York City.
