Five stylish New York City hotels on our wishlist

WordsRachel Rowney


Undoubtedly one of the coolest cities in the world, New York City is host to some of the most stylish hotels around, boasting stunning interiors and enviable skyline views. Read on to check out the 5 on our wishlist, and learn about their rich architectural history, distinctive decor styles, and where to book your visit.

The Henry Norman Hotel

Located in Brooklyn’s trendy Greenpoint area, the Henry Norman hotel has transformed a 19th-century textile warehouse and artist studio into a luxury hotel. Eager for the interior’s industrial-chic design to pay homage to the building’s history, the hotel has retained the loft-style rooms for its suites and features several original factory details throughout, such as the impressive staircase that dominates the lobby and highlights the vastness of the building.

If you ever doubted you were in the Big Apple, a vintage bright yellow taxi greets you upon arrival – one of the many quirky design features that appear throughout the hotel. Antique lampshades and coloured glass adorn the reception area, with industrial silver and original brickwork retaining the warehouse feel.

A short distance away in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park neighbourhood is the Wyndham Garden Brooklyn Hotel. Designed by Horst Design International, the bold silver facade of the building evokes the image of a vintage airstream, with dramatic lighting accentuating each of the hotel windows. In sharp contrast to the aluminium exterior, each of the hotel’s floors is designed to reflect one of four seasons—winter, spring, summer and autumn. Expansive wall murals of trees and fields throughout the year cover the walls to immerse each guest in the natural world.
