Dazzler Hotels, an upscale collection of stylish hotels by Argentinean brand Fën Hotels, has opened the new 174-room Dazzler Brooklyn hotel in downtown Brooklyn, bringing a sophisticated new option for accommodations to Flatbush Avenue Extension. The property set a new standard for hotel guests and neighborhood discovery when doors officially opened on August 1, 2015.
Inspired by classic Brooklyn and incorporating a modern design aesthetic, the hotel is strategically located in the heart of downtown Brooklyn, steps away from some of the best local restaurants, shops, nightlife and landmarks including the Manhattan Bridge, Brooklyn Museum and Barclays Center. Dazzler Brooklyn guests enjoy amenities such as complimentary continental breakfast daily and free WiFi. The hotel incorporates historic touches of Brooklyn throughout its design and amenities, and will soon offer Eataly products in its minibars, emphasizing the hotel's commitment to quality and proximity to Manhattan.
“Dazzler Brooklyn will welcome guests from every corner of the world to the vibrant Downtown Brooklyn area, with an upscale hotel experience offering an authentic vibe,” said Carlos Gareis, General Manager of Dazzler Brooklyn. He added, “This is the first Dazzler brand hotel in New York and we look forward to becoming a part of this vibrant community, especially as local residents enjoy our Beer Garden opening this fall.”
Brooklyn-Inspired Design Details
The creative direction and design was led by Brooklyn-based clo-th Interiors with a design scheme echoing its urban locale, mixing Manhattan glamour with industrial Brooklyn influences. “The Brooklyn aesthetic we drew from is a mix of vintage style with the modern aesthetic,” said Szandra Toth, Founder of cl-oth Interiors. She added, “Dazzler Brooklyn is closely situated to the crossover between Manhattan and Brooklyn, which provided us with distinct location inspiration and the opportunity to merge the glamour of Manhattan with the industrial feel of Brooklyn.”
The connection between the shiny glamour of Manhattan and the industrial feel of Brooklyn is evident throughout the hotel. The lobby is a juxtaposition of modern and vintage, featuring a poured-in-place raw concrete staircase contrasting the textural glimmer of oiled-wood lobby floors. The lobby space is punctuated with plush contemporary furnishings creating a selection of living room environments ideal for social meet-ups.
The Brooklyn vibe takes guests all the way up as the hotel's elevator cabs feature mural-sized reproductions of an antique historic drawing from a map of the area, as see in the Brooklyn Museum's catalog. Polished brass accents in both the metal work and the light fixtures create a depth in public spaces and guest rooms.
Stylish Rooms with Modern Amenities
Brooklyn is about boutique and handcraft, which was the design direction for the 174 guestrooms, including 154 Classic Rooms (average 250 sq. ft.), 14 Junior Suites (300 sq. ft.) and six Executive Suites (450 sq. ft.) featuring an entry foyer, spacious living area and sofa sleeper. All rooms are thoughtfully planned, emphasizing elements of hand craftsmanship symbolic of Brooklyn, with stunning stenciled art detailed on custom headboards, simply painted yet functional wood desks and accent pieces in line with the overall design aesthetic.
Hand woven jute area rugs in each room convey the feeling of being a guest in a private home. The moldings on the walls and ceilings as well as the millwork details further identify with the Brooklyn architecture of the 19th Century.
Full-service Amenities for Savvy Travelers
Guests will recognize the luxurious brands for in-room amenities including Frette bed linens and a selection of C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries bath products. Each room includes overhead rain showerheads, marble bathroom sink area, Internet ready smart televisions, self-serve mini bar and complimentary WiFi.
The food and beverage spaces at Dazzler Brooklyn include a ground floor Café & Espresso Bar serving an artisanal breakfast and lunch menu; and the second story outdoor beer garden (opening this fall) will not only offer hotel guests sought-after amenities, but were designed to attract local Brooklyn guest as well. Additional services include a fitness center, in-room dining, business center, express dry cleaning and 24/7 parking garage on site.
The hotel features state-of-the-art meeting and event space suitable for corporate meetings, conferences, events and social functions. Meeting space is located on the lower level and includes a 3,767 sq. ft. ballroom and 667 sq. ft. pre-function area.
