wythe hotel

wythe-hotel_brooklyn_frontas a manhattan frequent visitor, it is hard to believe that i’ve never been to Brooklyn… never. ‘no way!’ … i know, right?  it is only three stops from 14 street/union square on L line! and then of course you can keep going, all the way to rockaway. finally, after years and years, there is a reason to visit and stay in brooklyn, thanks to the opening of wythe hotel.

converted from a factory built in 1901, wythe hotel is absolutely michitecture’s best of the best vintage modern. mostly the original structure has been kept, furnished with modern furniture. the rustic-industrial vibe is everywhere, but not too much, just perfect amount to maintain a subtle yet stylish atmosphere throughout the hotel.

shown in above picture, the neon-lit sign “hotel” is created from salvaged tin signage by artist Tom Fruin. add-on rooftop glass building is designed by architect Morris Adjmi. we had couple drinks at the bar on sixth floor and the panoramic view to manhattan was absolutely amazing.

exposed brick/wood beam, radiant concrete flooring and tiles always pump my pulse.

we love our stay, especially when there are no suspicious extra cushions on the bed (they hear us!). the food from reynard‘s are impeccable, a total farm-to-table; front desk staffs are professional and friendly (and stylish). it was the first time a hotel made us feel like home. yeah, just how much we like about the place, and the neighborhood.
