BROOKLYN, NY—The 183-room William Vale is now open here in the Williamsburg section of the borough. The property features architecture by Albo Liberis and interiors by Studio Munge.
The amenities and guest services include the longest hotel pool in NYC at 60 ft., according to the company; Vale Park, an elevated 15,000-sq.-ft. green space atop street level; 24-hour in-room dining; twice-daily housekeeping service; complimentary WiFi; a fitness center; valet parking; business work stations; Frette linens; L’Occitane en Provence products; smart TV systems and Brooklyn Roasting Company coffee available throughout the property. Gunn Landscape Architecture designs all outdoor spaces and greenery.
“We believe The William Vale will reinvent Brooklyn and we felt it was the right time to bring this resort-inspired hotel to the neighborhood as it is quickly emerging as the go-to destination,” said Sébastien Maingourd, GM of The William Vale.
The hotel’s wide range of spaces sets the stage for its calendar of cultural programs, which are open to both hotel guests and locals. Each event is meant to connect the property with the surrounding community, whether it’s through book launches for Brooklyn authors, rooftop yoga, opera performances, indie movie screenings, painting classes with local artists or group meditation, according to the company.
Chef Andrew Carmellini of NoHo Hospitality Group oversees the hotel’s distinct dining destinations and in-room dining, including Leuca, a Southern Italian restaurant with wood-fired cuisine, opening this fall, and Westlight, a 22nd-floor rooftop bar serving rare spirits and craft cocktails with skyline views.
Carmellini and the NoHo team also serve a menu of light snacks and cocktails at Vale Pool and oversee all private event menus for the property’s event spaces, which include a 4,000-sq.-ft. ballroom; two boardrooms and two conference rooms.
The hotel is close to the Brooklyn Brewery; dining options include Bedford Avenue, the Brooklyn Bowl, the food festival known as Smorgasburg and Indie Nitehawk Cinema.
