Zipping across the pond to New York, The Hoxton Williamsburg is indeed coming to Wythe Avenue, as predicted last year. We don't know much more than that, but opening should be in 2016 and the location was chosen because “it embodies all that The Hoxton loves in an eclectic and vibrant neighbourhood, full of interesting characters, with a fascinating industrial past but very much a creative present”.
If that’s not enough, we might have an additional go-to spot for an affordable hotel in Paris by that time as well, with The Hoxton Paris set to open in the 2nd arrondissement. That location puts the hotel just north of the Louvre and east of Opéra; if Hoxton can pull off its friendly rates here, we suspect it could be a game changer. Stay tuned.
