The Hoxton Opens Williamsburg


Bookings are now live for The Hoxton, Williamsburg, which will be opening its doors this September. This is the brand’s first hotel in the US, and marks the beginning of The Hoxton’s exciting North American expansion, with Portland and Downtown LA to follow later this year, and Chicago in Spring 2019.  

The Hoxton, Williamsburg is located in Brooklyn, on the site of the former Rosenwach factory, the maker of the iconic wooden water towers that scatter the New York skyline. The hotel will have 175 rooms, three restaurants, a rooftop with incredible views of Manhattan, lively public spaces, and The Apartment, a unique meeting and events space that’s home to The Hoxton’s rolling cultural events programme, which highlights the good and the great in each city.

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 iconic 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 programme, and bespoke bed linen has been created by local Brooklyn designer, Dusen Dusen.

The hotel’s three restaurants and six bars are 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 classics throughout the lobby and brasserie-style restaurant from morning ‘til late. A stunning Klein-blue French Molteni cooking suite and wood-fired grill add impact to the space as a central feature in the open-plan restaurant. Backyard, the outdoor mezzanine restaurant will be a more relaxed offering — think chips and dips, huge sandwiches, pitchers of cocktails and ping pong tables. And last but not least, Summerly, an open-air restaurant, will be located on The Hoxton’s first rooftop, offering unbeatable views of that Manhattan skyline and bringing East Coast summer vibes to the middle of New York City.
