Located in the heart of Brooklyn, the Wythe Hotel is a charming 8-story property on the Williamsburg waterfront. Built in 1901, this former cooperage has been meticulously converted into a 70-room hotel offering service and amenities yet to be seen in the borough. Located in Brooklyn’s most dynamic neighborhood, the hotel is in close proximity to Williamsburg’s best art galleries, boutiques, bars, restaurants, and concert halls. 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, Wythe Hotel melds historic with modern, creating something entirely unique and authentic.
Atop the original 5-story building sits a new 3-story glass and aluminum structure that references the hotel’s existing factory windows with a modern flair. Throughout the hotel, 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.
The hotel also has impressive food and beverage options. Check out Le Crocodile, the ground floor neighborhood brasserie serving earnest French fare in a setting inspired by Parisian and New York favorites from chefs Jake Leiber and Aidan O’Neal. Upstairs on the 6th floor, you’ll find Lemon’s – a cocktail bar and terrace with stunning Manhattan and Brooklyn views. Don’t forget to check out the 60-seat screening room and bar downstairs!
