Fodor's Expert Review The Hoxton

97 Wythe Ave., Brooklyn, New York, 11249, USA

Built on the site of a water tower factory, this hipster hotel pays homage to the area’s industrial past with exposed brick, raw concrete, and steel girders, while nodding to its trendy present with bright, high-ceilinged spaces, quirky fonts and patterns, and three dining spots–-Klein’s, Backyard, and Summerly–-run by local luminaries, plus a rooftop bar. A shop sells Brooklyn items made specially for the hotel by local designers. Guests can opt for a room with a view of Brooklyn or the Manhattan skyline, but everyone gets to wake up to the daily “breakfast bag," with a Hox Friends' tip on what to see and do.

PROS

  • monthly events that attract locals
  • three restaurants and a rooftop bar
  • room views of the Manhattan skyline

CONS

  • rooms can be small for Brooklyn
  • area can get a bit dead during the day and noisy at night
  • connections to the rest of the city must go through the sometimes-unreliable L train
