You could almost say that the Wythe Hotel is one big feat of boutique upcycling. Housed within an old factory building from 1901, the original red brick exterior provides instant character, while the glass extension optimises on what are surely some of the best views of the Manhattan skyline. Incidentally, many of the guests can enjoy these views through floor-to-ceiling windows.
The raw, stripped-down interiors – all exposed brick and smooth flooring – pay tribute to the nature of the original building, whilst maintaining a sleek, contemporary design throughout. The Wythe Hotel’s rooms feature everything from custom-made wallpaper and underfloor heating to pedestal tubs and even bunk beds. Add to that the hotel’s stylish HD screening room, bar, outside patio and in-house eatery in the form of Reynard’s Restaurant, and it’s easy to conclude that the Wythe Hotel offers good service and comfort in the most stylish of surroundings.
