From Wythe Hotel:
Located in the heart of Brooklyn, the Wythe Hotel is an 8-story hotel on the Williamsburg waterfront. Built in 1901, this former cooperage 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 – including its concave corner entrance, original pine beams, masonry, arched windows and cast-iron columns – has been beautifully preserved. Like its surrounding neighborhood, the Wythe Hotel melds historic with modern, creating something entirely unique and authentic.
Atop the original 5-story structure sits a new 3-story glass and aluminum addition that references the hotel’s existing factory windows while dramatically pulling the building into the present. Throughout the hotel, 72 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 boast floor-to-ceiling views of the Manhattan skyline and East River.
Renowned Brooklyn restaurateur Andrew Tarlow, of Marlow & Sons, Diner, and Roman’s, manages the hotel’s expansive food and beverage program. Venues include Reynards – a ground floor restaurant and bar with a wood-fired oven and grill, courtyard seating, and a daily menu featuring market-driven American fare and seasonal cocktails, and Ides – a 6th floor bar and terrace with stunning Manhattan and Brooklyn views. There are various event spaces as well, including a main event hall, a private dining room, large guest lofts and 60-seat screening room and bar. Wythe Hotel is located in Brooklyn’s most dynamic neighborhood, with Williamsburg’s best galleries, boutiques, bars, restaurants and concert halls within walking distance. It is one subway stop from Manhattan, and minutes from the central hub of Union Square.
