wythe hotel

by Amy Azzarito


Grace and I spend most of our time bouncing between Williamsburg and Greenpoint here in Brooklyn. I live in Williamsburg, she’s in Greenpoint and our office is in Greenpoint. Between all the stores and restaurants in the two neighborhoods, we could stay busy for weeks. Friends are always asking us where to stay in the ‘hood, but so far, we haven’t had any good options. Then we heard about a new hotel built by Andrew Tarlow of Williamsburg restaurant favorites Marlow & Sons and Diner. So on a beautiful sunny day last week, Grace and I walked over to the Wythe Hotel to check it out for ourselves. โ€”ย Amy Azzarito


Fancy hotel hits Williamsburg! The hotel is housed in a textile factory built in 1901, and the owners made sure that the 72-room hotel would retain much of its industrial character, like its concave corner entrance, original pine beams, masonry, arched windows and cast-iron columns. Andrew Tarlow is managing the hotel’s food and beverage program, including Reynards, a ground floor restaurant and bar with courtyard seating, and Ides, a sixthย floor bar with Manhattan views and an outdoor terrace. While I don’t think I can justify staying in a hotel a few blocks away from my apartment, I’m definitely planning to become a brunch regular.
