Brooklyn Goes Boutique: Hotel Williamsburg to Open in May

Hotel Williamsburg, the first property of its kind in Brooklyn, New York, is slated to open in May 2011. Williamsburg already blends ‘old-school’ Brooklyn grit with ‘new-school’ luxury, yet it’s rare that a property that currently exists in Williamsburg embodies both qualities, certainly not a hotel.

Hotel Williamsburg will spark a new era of Brooklyn luxury and will cater to a crowd of tastemakers, VIPs and locals alike.

Designed by Studio Gaia and architect Gene Kaufman, Hotel Williamsburg will incorporate a veritable ‘dream team’ of local Brooklyn purveyors in its amenities line––including chocolatiers, cheesemongers and designers.

The hotel has just signed on with New York City apothecary Malin+Goetz to provide the in-room bath amenities.

Keeping with its downtown cool charm, the hotel will offer an imaginative assortment of in-room offerings––such as a Crosley record player with a record rental station in the lobby.

Additional property stand-outs include a roof top bar with tri-borough views of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens; an outdoor pool/bar for hotel guests with an option for seasonal membership for non-guests; a restaurant serving “urban rustic” fare with a NYC chef at the helm; and bespoke cocktails by Alchemy Consulting.
