When a friend recommended staying at The Hoxton brand of hotels, I had to admit a bit of trepidation. After desiring a change of pace from Manhattan and finally deciding that I wanted to stay in Brooklyn, I began my hotel comparisons. Soon, I was choosing between 1 Hotel’s Brooklyn property and the The Hoxton Williamsburg.
Once I chose The Hoxton, Williamsburg, the final details of my trip was set.
Now, I can deny that the rooms are – cozy. It’s similar – coziness – to the Tommie brand of hotel that I stayed at in Austin, Texas, earlier in the year. It was so cozy that the bed took up the majority of the room. But, knowing that this is average of hotel rooms in Brooklyn, it was manageable for a few nights.
What did I appreciate and enjoy the most about The Hoxton Williamsburg? The view of the Manhattan skyline. The hotel was also close to everything I wanted to see and do. I could walk 20 minutes to the nearest subway station to get to Manhattan. Or, take a reasonably priced Lyft to the Brooklyn Museum.
Another thing I appreciated is that the common area of the K’far Coffee shop and bar were never empty. Co-workers looking for a change of scenery from their homes or people socializing always populated the areas. It was lively, rich and fun to watch people converse and enjoy life over lattes. Another highlight was the rooftop bar and restaurant, Laser Wolf.
Overall, I enjoyed my stay at The Hoxton Williamsburg. Sometimes, truly its great to try something new. Especially a lovely hotel in a great location.
