A trailblazing British brand brings its retro allure across the pond to Williamsburg
One glance at the Hoxton’s room categories—guests can choose from Cozy, Cozy With a View, or Roomy, all decked out with local ceramics, Roberts radios, raw concrete ceilings, and wood and brass detailing—serve as previews of its unfussy elegance and hipster vibe (practically a requisite in this pocket of New York), while the lobby, courtesy of London-based design firm Ennismore, is an equally Insta-friendly blend of vintage chandeliers, houseplants and Millennial Pink couches. The dazzling centerpiece is a recreated carriage house—a tribute to the structure that once anchored the aforementioned Rosenwach Factory—that’s now the site of Klein’s, one of three onsite restaurants spearheaded by renowned Greenpoint restaurateur Jud Mongel. His menu is an ode to all things grilled, including a charred Amish chicken, steak, and a much-buzzed-about burger. Backyard, a relaxed al fresco space serving no-utensils-required treats like hot dogs and pimento cheese, and Summerly, a glass-encased rooftop bar, wreathed with floral barstools, round out the charming seasonal offerings.
In the Area
Warehouses once dominated this Brooklyn nabe before paving the way for the hipster brigade. These days, alt-cool Williamsburg’s high-rises are attracting a fresh crop of young professionals and families, meaning the entertainment offerings here run the gamut from larger-than-life drag shows at the nearby Metropolitan Bar to Domino Park, a new six-acre green space built on the site of a former sugar refinery. As part of its commitment to joining forces with area’s creative set, The Hoxton’s own dynamic cultural events calendar, which could include a stand-up performance by a Saturday Night Live cast member or showcases for local street artists, is a force to be reckoned with.
How to Get There
We had a great stay overall at the Hoxton, Williamsburg. The room was just what we needed and the staff was very pleasant. The hotel lobby has the coziest vibes, great for a drink before dinner or to relax and have a coffee by the fireplace.
The only recommendation I would give is to add some kind of stereo system to the rooms!
My first stay at the Hoxton Hotel Williamsburg.
The hotel is conveniently located in Brooklyn a simple walk from shopping and restaurants. The hotel also has a rooftop restaurant, outdoor restaurants/bar and a nice restaurant off the lobby. The aesthetic is retro vide with industrial details. The staff were great and the hotel was clean and comfortable. No parking on site but there is a public garage a few streets away. Beautiful view of city skyline, rooms a little on the small side, but nicely appointed with comfortable bed and high end sheets.
The greeting at the front desk - all smiles and helpful. The staff answered our questions and were on top of everything. Our room was very comfortable, and the bed was great. The food in the restaurant - fabulous and the wait staff - amazing!!! No complaints. You guys ROCK! Even though we saw a lot of dogs in the hallway, and there were lots of events going on in the hotel, the room was QUIET!!! Don't know how they do it but the room was quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed watching the sous chefs prepare our food at the high top in front of the grill.
