EN: The Hoxton Hotel group has just opened their first hotel in the states: in Williamsburg, New York. A hipster Brooklyn area with a string of high-design hotels and foodie hotspots. And we’ve got the chance to stay at the brand new hotel for 4 nights during our New York trip last week. Just in April, we’ve been to The Hoxton Hotel in Paris and were simply impressed. It’s not a surprise, then, that The Hoxton would decide to set up house along this flourishing district of New York.
Even at first glance, you can tell The Hoxton Williamsburg convinces with his unique style. The front desk is hidden away around a corner, and the vast, Ennismore-designed lobby feels more like an interior junkie’s living room. There are velvet armchairs done up, vintage cushions on mint green couches, flickering fireplaces, plants trailing down the side of bookshelves and retro chandeliers twinkling above cool thirty-somethings sipping on matcha espressos. It’s the sort of place you want to spend all afternoon in.
All the Hoxton’s rooms come with king-sized beds and views of either the Manhattan or Brooklyn skyline, while the larger ‘roomy’ (recommended for longer stays) get a bathtub to boot. Brass light fittings, dark wood shelves, and Roberts radios give the space a fun, retro feel, offset by graphic, monochrome bed sheets from local design brand Dusen Dusen. We’ve booked a Brooklyn skyline room and enjoyed the special view every evening. There are stacks of books to flick through and handy maps and tips for the neighborhood tucked inside a desk. One thoughtful touch is the easy breakfast option: hang your ‘breakfast bag’ outside your room before you go to bed and you’ll be greeted the next morning with an oatmeal breakfast pot, orange juice, and fruit. And of course, you can also choose a vegan option. 🙂
The Hoxton Hotel has also a very impressive rooftop in Williamsburg with an amazing view above Brooklyn and Manhatten skyline. This is a place for New Yorkers just as much as visitors.
