With less than two months to go until opening, we imagine things are pretty busy down at the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn, where rooms, restaurant and lobby are all currently in the final stages. But as we wait to see a finished product, we're curious about what this place will look like inside.

So we went hunting for a few clues.

The website boasts that all the rooms will be equipped with custom beds (made from the building's actual recycled pine), free WiFi, and thirteen foot ceilings. According to a rep for the hotel, the actual number is twelve feet, which is the lowest ceiling height in all the rooms—not bad! Many rooms, including the lobby, are even larger. And since rooms will also have floor-to-ceiling windows, the more height, the better the view.

Though the hotel retains much of the original structure of the former factory building in which it is housed, there is one slight change. In order to open up the rooms and provide a better view, the back of the building was completely stripped away, and replaced by floor-to-ceiling casement factory windows. These will help establish the "vintage" vibe of the place while also allowing for some killer views of Manhattan from the west side of the building.

That vintage factory look will also be manifested in the lobby's 20 foot ceilings, original wooden beams, and exposed brick.

Down in the restaurant (which is accessed off the lobby), much of the hotel's buzz will center around Andrew Tarlow (Diner, Marlow & Sons, Roman's), the new head of food and beverage for the self-proclaimed "foodie hotel," which as we mentioned before, promises "whole animal" food.

Nothing like a heaping plate of pork cracklings to go with that killer view.
