Hilton has opened its latest property in New York, located in a mixed use development in Brooklyn’s Boreum Hill area.
The Hilton Brooklyn New York features 196 rooms, fitness and business centres, a grab and go pantry, and 210 sqm of meeting space.
The property also features the fourth Brooklyn restaurant by New York chef Rob Newton. Black Walnut is described as offering “a unique combination of Southern Cooking meets Asian Fusion”, and joins Newton’s existing Brooklyn restaurants Nightingale Nine, Wilma Jean and Smith Canteen.
The hotel’s design includes a rope motif which “pays tribute to the Schermerhorn rope factory that previously occupied the site in the 19th century, braiding rope for New York’s shipbuilding industry”, as well as murals of vintage neighbourhood maps lining the walls.
Commenting on the opening Shawn McAteer, vice president, global brand management, Hilton Hotels and Resorts said:
“This opening is the latest example of Hilton’s growing presence in the world’s most sought-after destinations.
“Hilton has set standards of excellence in hospitality for nearly a century and we are ready to redefine the guest experience in Brooklyn with this hotel. With its prime location and on-site restaurant and bar helmed by one of the borough’s most celebrated chefs, Rob Newton, guests will immediately feel in the heart of it all in this thriving community.”
