Boutique hotel luxury comes to Brooklyn, with the new Wythe Hotel in the heart of trendy, waterfront Williamsburg. The setting is a century-old factory, with architectural details like 13′ ceilings, arched windows, pine beams and cast iron columns respectfully retained, and a gleaming three-story glass-and-aluminum extension popped on top. The best-facing of the 72 rooms feature stunning ceiling-to-floor views of the East River and the Manhattan skyline, and two of the four guest lofts offer private rooftop decks. Appointments and amenities are thoughtfully green-minded, with local foods on the menu in the main floor restaurant-bar, seasonal snacks in the mini-bars, and local artists on the walls. Performing artists can feel catered to, with two band rooms (four and six beds), and eight bunk rooms. A 60-seat screening theatre, 200-person main hall with separate entrance, and various private dining and event spaces, some with garden seating, round out the accommodations. And there is a rooftop bar-terrace with a wraparound view. Now open: $179-$495. More in our photo gallery.
