Home away from home loft living in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, with a retro industrial vibe
A 1970s Checker cab and a retro marquee announce that you have reached the Box House Hotel, a funky collection of loftlike suites set amid the warehouses, movie studios and row houses of Greenpoint, in northernmost Brooklyn. Set in a former door factory, the hotel offers a playful take on an industrial aesthetic: mismatched old windows with colored panes line one wall, crystal chandeliers add a glam touch to beam ceilings, and gilt-framed paintings sit above the concrete check-in desk.
Bed and Bath
The 57 loftlike suites feel more like funky apartments than traditional hotel rooms, with fully stocked kitchenettes (or full kitchens), 42-inch LCD TVs, iPod/iPhone docking stations and a mix of cozy modern and vintage furniture. Many rooms have loft bedroom areas — ideal for keeping sleeping and entertaining spaces separate — and many have private terraces, some with panoramic views of Manhattan. The rooms can sleep between two and six people, so they’re ideal for families or groups of friends traveling together.
Head to The Brooklyn Lantern (open daily from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.), which serves classic American cuisine, with a hint of Italian influence. And you can work it all off in the hotel’s gym, which has both a sauna and steam room.
About the Area
Take advantage off the hotel’s free shuttle service and explore Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood. Wander up Franklin Street for shopping at spots like Alter clothing, Academy Records and Word bookshop, which often hosts readings from local authors. If you’re up for a bit of a wait for dinner, hit Paulie Gee’s a Brooklyn favorite for gourmet pizzas (including vegan options) or visit Glasserie—housed in the former home of Greenpoint Glass Works—for seasonal small plates. And for brunch, an NYC institution, we like the egg biscuit sandwich paired with a mimosa at cozy Anella or, if the weather is on the warmer side, the charming garden at French bistro Le Gamin for crepes.
