Hipster-friendly minimalism. Cutting a sexy figure — eight stories of steel and glass that mirror its high-rise neighbors — the hotel has a hot address next to McCarren Park and Bedford Avenue in the heart of Williamsburg. A $2 million face-lift by King & Grove designer Heather Maloney was completed in August 2012, and the hotel’s modernized 1970s look is alluring, with mirrored walls and floor-to-ceiling windows.
Bed & Bath
The 64 rooms start at a cozy 215 square feet, but feel bright thanks to a neutral white, oak and blond palette, textured seagrass-weave wallpaper and beds robed in Frette and Matouk linens. Marble bathrooms echo the property’s minimalist theme with rainfall showers and Malin + Goetz products. For more room to stretch out, One-Bedroom Suites have wide parlors and oak-lined wet bars.
Until the restaurant opens in early 2013, daily continental breakfast (coffee and juice with yogurt, fruit and Balthazar pastries) is served in the petite marble and oak lobby, where there’s also a mini-library. Upstairs, Williamsburg’s cool kids sip McCarren Sours (bourbon, yellow chartreuse, honey and lemon juice) at the new rooftop bar, which gets its racket club style from the courts at neighboring McCarren Park. And eight stories below is a bathwater-temperature saltwater pool that will reopen in spring 2013.
