Wythe Hotel Review

A former cooperage on the Brooklyn waterfront has found new life as the Wythe Hotel, one of the hottest openings of 2012–and home to stunning Manhattan-skyline views, locally sourced design touches and amenities, and a hip restaurant. Built in 1901, the factory building near the Brooklyn Brewery underwent a five-year renovation, utilizing reclaimed pine from the original building to create rustic ceilings. Rooms have a distinct Brooklyn sensibility, with polished concrete floors (plus underfloor heating), local custom-patterned wallpaper, and surround sound controlled by your iPhone. The best rooms face Manhattan's skyline, but it's also possible to take in the views from the sixth-floor rooftop bar. There is no room service, but the cozy ground-floor restaurant, Reynard's, has won a place in the hearts of locals—partly due to free Wi-Fi—and is ideal for a meal or coffee at any time of day. If you're looking to keep costs down, bunk rooms offer great value.
