White Heat in Brooklyn: The Wythe Hotel

Francesca Connolly May 22, 2012

I knew something was up when I saw the rows of town cars lined up outside the brand-new Wythe Hotel, located in a gritty street in Williamsburg.

In keeping with the Brooklyn design spirit, the white-hot Wythe Hotel is housed in a restored historical industrial building topped with a three-story glass tower addition. The interiors feature an authentic mix of Old World charm (restored brick facade, original timber beams, cast-iron columns) and new local design (graphic wallpaper, crisp white sheets, polished concrete floors); it all feels like the culmination of Brooklyn’s design evolution. For booking information, go to Wythe Hotel.

N.B.: One of our favorite NY firms, Workstead, worked on the public spaces.

Above: The Wythe bedrooms feature nouveau toile wallpaper designed by Dan Funderburgh and printed in Brooklyn by Flavor Paper (he calls it “a delicate tribute to the perfectly imperfect sights and scenes of Williamsburg, Brooklyn; specifically, North 11th and Wythe where the hotel is located”).

Above: The custom beds are made from reclaimed ceiling timbers by Dave Hollier Woodwork and Design.

Above: Simple snowy white linens cover the beds.

Above: Bunk Rooms are on offer for $175 a night.

Above: The mini bars feature small-batch liquors, housemade ice cream, and artisan granola.

Above: Goldies Bath Products, made in Rockaway, New York, are on offer.

Above: Black bentwood chairs and cafe tables.

Above: Andrew Tarlow (of Marlow & Sons, Diner, and Roman’s) is behind the hotel’s Reynards Restaurant.

Above: Tiled floors evoke an earlier era.

Above: Subway tiles (this is Brooklyn, after all) line the bathroom walls; on the floor, vibrantly patterned tiles from Popham add a note of exotica.

Above: The threshold features custom blue hex tiles and inlaid brass lettering.
