The Cool Factor


The grocery store checkout line is an impulse shoppers dream....the candy! the gum!  the sodas!  and yes, the magazines!
So I picked up the November issue of Martha Stewart Living yesterday (freshly baked pies on the cover always get me), and spied 
The Wythe Hotel in an article.

Owners Andrew Tarlow, Jed Walentas and Peter Lawrence have taken a 111 year old textile factory and made it into a 72 room hotel.  
They know what they're doing - check out the ammenities:

  • In-room surround sound controllable by iPhone
  • Custom made Flavor Paper wallpaper by Dan Funderburgh
  • Full-service seasonal minibar
  • Complimentary wifi
  • 13′ high original timber ceilings
  • Locally made furniture
  • Commissioned art by Duke Riley, ESPO, and Tom Fruin
  • 6th Floor Rooftop Bar
  • Fitness Room
  • Screening Room
  • No room service

And the rooms have that certain cool factor that only well done renovations can give.

There's even a bunk-bed room!

Going to Brooklyn?  Stay here, and tell me all about it!


  1. Anita, really this hotel does look so cool; and I would love to stay there. A great renovation!
