Best Hotel, Fewer Than 100 Rooms
Wythe Hotel, Brooklyn, N.Y.
Designed by Andrew Tarlow, Peter Lawrence, and Jed Walentas; Morris Adjmi Architects; Workstead
Transforming a 1901 building into an industrial-chic hotel, the Wythe is emblematic of the new Brooklyn—increasingly a New York destination in its own right—and the homegrown, craft-centered aesthetic it represents. The hotel’s carefully preserved brick masonry, cast-iron columns, loft-style windows, and pine beams lend it a kind of historical glow; the modern furnishings, custom woodwork, and eye-catching art and graphics combine to create something entirely new. 80 Wythe Ave.; wythehotel.com. $
