Our story

Just like our doors, our minds are open too. Since we opened our first hotel in Shoreditch, London in 2006, we’ve never just been about offering a bed for the night. We want to be more than that, providing a place where guests can hang out alongside the locals and submerse themselves in the neighborhood with vibrant, welcoming public spaces. Then there's our eclectic programme of monthly events where we bring the outside in, working with local creatives to curate events unique to each location.


We proved that style didn’t need to be sacrificed for value, and honest pricing is still very much at the heart of everything we do. We opened our second London hotel in 2014, followed by Amsterdam in 2015, Paris in 2017. Williamsburg Portland, Los Angeles are all to come in 2018 with Chicago following in 2019. Each hotel has its own character; however, you’ll find the familiar Hoxton Hustle in each, incorporating the uniqueness of their neighborhoods using local designers, artists, and illustrators for everything from interiors to wallpaper, art and neighborhood guides.


The Hoxton, Williamsburg is on the site of the Rosenwach factory, the maker of the iconic NYC water towers. Featuring 175 bedrooms, a vibrant public area, restaurant, terrace bar, and roof desk along with The Apartment, our events and meeting space; The Hoxton, Williamsburg will be at the center of the Williamsburg community.
