As reported by Curbed New York, The Williamsburg Hotel is now open for business. The 8-story spot at the intersection of North 10th and Wythe Avenue features 150 rooms. Amenities include floor-to-ceiling windows, open-windowed showers, and interior design featuring leather, marble, and brass. Rooms start at $300 per night, with the more expensive rooms going for around $600 per night. At this time, only the guest rooms and lobby bar (pictured below) are open.
Besides an awesome cocktail in the lobby bar, you can enjoy the work of street artist Eric Rieger, who hung thousands of multi-colored strands of yarn above the lobby bar to create an incredible piece. Looking ahead, Chef Adam Leonti will open Harvey in February, a restaurant with a heavy focus on grains and veggies. Later this year, the much-anticipated water tower bar is slated to open. The nod to the area's historic wooden water tower factory will seat 50 people max, and you will actually be able to drink inside of a water tower. Who doesn't want to say they've done that?! We sure do!
There are plans for 3 other bars in the space (yes yes yes), set to open around the same time as the water tower bar. These plans include a private bar for hotel guests only, as well as an underground lounge. Have you checked out the hotel yet? What are you most looking forward to?
