International hotel brand The Hoxton is preparing to make U.S. debut this September, with its first property on American soil opening in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Bookings are already open for The Hoxton, Williamsburg, the first U.S. outpost of The Hoxton brand, which has a rapid North American expansion plan with two further openings, The Hoxton, Portland (Ore.) and The Hoxton, Downtown LA in Los Angeles coming later this year, followed by The Hoxton, Chicago early next year.

The Hoxton, Williamsburg is located in Brooklyn, on the site of the former Rosenwach factory, the maker of the wooden water towers that scatter the New York skyline. The hotel will have 175 rooms, three restaurants, a rooftop with views of Manhattan, public spaces and The Apartment, a meeting and events space that’s home to The Hoxton’s cultural events program.

The bedrooms, designed by Ennismore Design Studio, are spread across three categories: Cosy, Cosy with a View and Roomy. Guests opting for a view can choose from the Brooklyn view or the Manhattan skyline. Brass details feature throughout, in contrast to raw concrete ceilings and mohair headboards in sage green, port and navy. Local ceramics can be found on the shelves; books are curated by local residents as part of the Hox Friends program, and bespoke bed linen has been created by local Brooklyn designer, Dusen Dusen.

The Hoxton’s public spaces were designed by Ennismore Design Studio in collaboration with Soho House. The hotel will offer three restaurants and six bars run in partnership with Brightside Hospitality, a union between Brooklyn restaurateurs Jud Mongell of Five Leaves and Zeb Stewart of Cafe Colette, Union Pool and Hotel Delmano. The main restaurant, Klein’s, will offer Americana-inspired dishes, while Backyard, the outdoor mezzanine restaurant will provide ping pong tables, pitchers of drinks and more. Lastly, Summerly, an open-air restaurant, will be located on The Hoxton’s first rooftop, offering views of the Manhattan skyline.

A calendar of cultural and lifestyle events will act as a platform for local start-ups and artists to be showcased. The Hoxton, Williamsburg will host fitness classes, workshops, masterclasses and talks in The Apartment, and revolving exhibitions in the Hox Gallery. The opening will also mark the launch of Best of Brooklyn, the brand's first foray into retail and an exclusive collaboration with local brands.
