For starters, we never hear too much about this hotel. No big parties, or celebrity guests, or happy hours to entice us over for a cocktail. Not that K&G Williamsburg necessarily needs to exist in the public eye, but for a hotel located in cool-obsessed Williamsburg, we figured the name would come up at least once or twice. In fact, when Brooklyn hotels come up in conversation and we mention K&G Williamsburg, folks often respond with a confused, "What's that?"
We recently popped inside the lobby on a Sunday evening, finding the place as dead as can be. A few guests sat at the bar (which, oddly, doubles as the reception desk) and we saw one group check in. But the general atmosphere was stale, empty, and a little off-key.
Luckily, we have heard plans for a new restaurant called The Elm, which is set to open in May. And things ought to pick up as the weather gets warmer and folks start showing up to use the pool.
But for now, considering this was meant to be King & Grove's big Brooklyn debut, we're a little mystified by this hotel's progress thus far.
Rates start at around $196/night.
