Arlo Hotels’ fourth NYC hotel, Arlo Williamsburg, will debut this September, joining its hip New York City sister properties Arlo SoHo, Arlo NoMad and Arlo Midtown. This is the sixth property for the hotel group, which also has properties in Chicago and Wynwood (Miami).
The 8-story brick tower property, originally The Williamsburg Hotel, features 147 accommodations, including eight suites, each featuring floor-to-ceiling windows that offer views of Brooklyn and Manhattan.
One of the on-property spots that has us aching to get on the first plane to NYC is the Water Tower Bar, with views of Brooklyn, the East River and Manhattan. Then there’s the 10,000-sq.-ft. Rooftop Pool & Lounge, with 360-degree views of the Manhattan skyline. Here, guests will enjoy locally curated music series and a bespoke craft cocktail menu.
“The opening of Arlo Williamsburg is an exciting milestone for Arlo Hotels as we expand the brand’s footprint to Brooklyn,” said Oleg Pavlov, founder and CEO of Quadrum Global and Arlo Hotels, in a press release statement (Quadrum Global owns the property). “The hotel already has a loyal following among visitors and locals alike. Now as Arlo Williamsburg we hope it will become an even more sought-after destination for those looking to heighten their stay in New York City.”
The Lobby Bar, meanwhile, features a cocktail menu and evokes the neighborhood’s industrial roots with its reclaimed wooden floors, exposed ceiling detail and brick walls. Hanging above the bar and tracing its perimeter is a rainbow installation by local street artist Eric Rieger (also known as HOTTEA).
Arlo Williamsburg’s onsite restaurant, The Williamsburg Restaurant, merges North and South American culinary techniques with locally sourced and organic seasonal ingredients. Curated by chef Alberto Gomez, the vegetable-forward menu features dishes inspired by his youth that pair with the culture of late-night Williamsburg. The industrial design is consistent with brick walls and a show stopping light fixture of individually hung pendant lights, while accents of lush greenery liven up the space. On Saturdays and Sundays, the restaurant invites guests to enjoy its signature Brooklyn High Tea.
Other hotel highlights include Mirror Bar, a private event space, performance venue and semi-secret club. The emerald-green space features French Empire crystal chandeliers and velvet sofas where guests and locals can grab a bite, drink and party.
Arlo Williamsburg Joins a Growing Hotel Brand
As part of the Arlo Hotels brand, Arlo Williamsburg will offer signature amenities, including fortune cookies in every room upon arrival, a community message-sharing board, and stamped postcards to send to friends and family at home.
