The Williamsburg Hotel — yep, the one with a cocktail bar in a rooftop water tower — announced today that when it opens late this year, rooms will start at $250 a night (we’re assuming the rooms with private balconies will go for more). A press release sent to B+B bills the 150-room hotel, located at Wythe Avenue and North 10th Street, as an “urban resort.”
With a rooftop pool with bar, a grand ballroom with 30-foot ceilings that accommodates 400 people, an “intimate subterranean nightclub,” a restaurant, and of course that replica water tower turned drinks den, it’s hard to disagree that the seven-story building with floor-to-ceiling windows will make for an “urban playground,” as a publicist puts it.
Managing directors Evan Altman (former General Manager at The Standard Hotel in Manhattan) and James Stuart (former Food and Beverage Director at The Bowery Hotel) will oversee the hotel’s identity, programming and operations, “ensuring this venture isn’t just another Brooklyn hotel trying not to be just another Brooklyn hotel,” per the release.
