Dazzler Brooklyn — New York, USA
Despite Brooklyn’s buzz, travel accommodations in the borough have been mostly confined to mid-market chain names with the odd boutique hotel thrown in. Thankfully, the stylish Argentinean brand Fën Hotels offers a welcome alternative with the opening of Dazzler Brooklyn, a sophisticated 174-room property in the heart of downtown Brooklyn with interiors that fortunately live up to its name. Designed by the locally based firm clo-th Interiors, the hotel weaves together elements of Manhattan chic with Brooklyn’s industrial overtones. In the lobby, a concrete, poured in place staircase is juxtaposed by stylish contemporary accents that convey a living room feel. The cosy vibe continues up to the guest rooms, which includes a series of options to suit an array of needs. Each room is furnished with mid-century-style furniture, hand woven jute rugs and stencilled art headboards that speak of Brooklyn’s handcraft tradition. With Eataly goodies stocking the minibar and an artisanal café and espresso bar providing sustenance (plus an outdoor beer garden to follow), the hotel exudes that discerning spirit that Brooklyn has become known for.
