Arlo Williamsburg opens in New York

Arlo Hotels, the independent lifestyle hotel brand with properties in New York, Chicago and Miami, has opened Arlo Williamsburg. Located in Brooklyn, NY, the property is brand’s fourth property in New York, joining Manhattan locations Arlo SoHo, Arlo NoMad and Arlo Midtown. The property is owned by Quadrum Global, an integrated development, investment management and advisory group focused on real estate opportunities.

When the eight-story brick tower first opened in 2017 as The Williamsburg Hotel, it quickly became a must-go for travelers and locals alike, drawing in visitors seeking to experience the best of Williamsburg. Under its new ownership and management, Arlo Williamsburg will continue to capture the essence of the neighborhood’s eclectic spirit, serving as a launchpad for all things local, according to Arlo Hotels.

Arlo Williamsburg features 147 guestrooms, including eight suites, each richly tiled and textured with authentic reclaimed materials and floor-to-ceiling windows offering views of Brooklyn and the Manhattan skyline. Beyond its accommodations, the property is sure to become a hub for creativity and unique experiences. It’s recently renovated 10,000-sq.-ft. Rooftop Pool & Lounge offers 360-degree views with loungers and cabanas and a bespoke craft cocktail menu. The rooftop oasis, with its DJ music sets, alfresco drinks, dining and entertainment, has become a staple for guests and locals to gather during the outdoor season.

The hotel’s Water Tower Bar is a fixture of the Brooklyn skyline where guests can mingle on plush velvet chairs and sofas enjoying food and drinks while taking in views of Manhattan and beyond. The Lobby Bar features a cocktail menu and evokes the neighborhood’s industrial roots with its reclaimed wooden floors, exposed ceiling detail and brick walls. Arlo Hotels partnered with artist Brooke Einbender (aka Mindbender Art) to transform the elevators across all its properties in a way that reflects the intersection of art and technology. Arlo Williamsburg’s on-site restaurant, The Williamsburg Restaurant, focuses on crafting dishes using locally sourced and organic seasonal ingredients. Other hotel highlights include Mirror Bar, a private event space, performance venue and semi-secret club.
