Cuffing season is upon us, and for some, that puts them in search of a warm body to get next to in private spaces. If you are of the fortunate few that snags a seasonal crush, turned cuddly companion, I invite you to indulge in the newest boutique (and might I add, cozy) lifestyle hotel: Coda Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Conveniently located at 160 N 12th Street in Williamsburg, its easily accessible as a 5 block walk from Bedford Ave, L train station. Coda Williamsburg’s entrance into Brooklyn is that of a quiet storm; tacitly opening its doors, shifting the visual aesthetics of the landscape and clearing the static energy of the surrounding neighborhood. Coda Williamsburg lends its appeal to those that favor a trendy, high-society escape from the busyness of Brooklyn, yet invites you to snuggle into its spaces, reminiscent of Bali and Malibu. The Coda hotel offers upscale service with a nonrestrictive flow for its guests to unwind, with ease.
Upon entrance to the Coda hotel’s grand opening, I was warmly greeted by the front desk concierge, and clear views of the CODA BEACH CLUB which features an “adult only” 4 ft. outdoor pool.
The hem of the pool is accented with palm trees, beach shutters, gorgeous cabanas and a mini bar that serves healthy smoothies, cocktails, wines; as well as Tequilas and Vodkas, available for purchase by the bottle.
Guest in attendance to the opening were offered choice wines (with shameless abandon, I selected the Rosé, twice), and was served delicious savory wagyu beef empanadas, drizzled with spicy mayo, these were my absolute favorite; midnight mi goreng grilled cheese sandwiches and gratifying samples of snap pea dip crostini (on baguettes) by pool side. Coda hotel offers the option of day-pass booking, daybeds and access to those beautiful shaded cabanas that I loved for the general public seeking a mini break away from the concrete jungle that is New York City.
For the escape to the private corridors, Coda offers its guests an option of 64 rooms and suites to choose from. The sizes range from the standard Queen, an intimate Boho room for a more conservative stay; to the Coda Penthouse, the 1,500 sq. ft light-filled room is the most generous of them all and features two bathrooms, living and dining space, kitchenette and two private outdoor patios.
The Penthouse’s king sized bed sleeps up to 3 and its window views peers out towards the city. Whichever room you choose at Coda, you will notice that each one is as uniquely designed as a fingerprint and laden with its own distinct flair and touch of class. Purposely handcrafted for comfortability and permanence, the furniture and decor reflects what Coda hotel echoes through every corner: relax, relate, and release.
The bathrooms offer walk-in rain showers to mimic the rains in Bali; toiletries by APOTHIA, a fashion and luxury inspired fragrance and body care brand based out of Los Angeles, that manufactures cruelty free, quality eau de perfumes, diffusers, candles and personal care essentials; and room service for its guests. For the fitness enthusiasts, the hotel encourages health and wellness, granting access to its 24/7 fully equipped gym facility.
As an added bonus to the hotel, Coda has a large rooftop lounge, Creatures of all Kind, operated by Full: Life Hospitality Group. The rooftop getaway delivers iconic views of Manhattan’s skyline and scenic landscape of Brooklyn, a live DJ, an enormous open space perfect for hosting day parties and events, plenty of seating arrangements; access to gender neutral bathrooms, an open bar and to top it off (pun intended) a retractable rooftop for its guest to enjoy the lounge, rain, sleet or snow. If rooftop lounging isn’t your thing, Coda also has an additional featured floor for Bohemia, a low lit dining space and nightclub club, located at the basement level of the hotel. Bohemia’s concept of its design is woven in the fabric of South Asian nightlife culture. Bohemia, as the other accommodating rooms and clubs has plenteous dance floor space and offered those in attendance the delicacies of watermelon crudo, scallop “leche de jaguar” ceviche, porb belly “B”ohemia Baos buns, Arancini and a deliciously light chia pudding accented with mint leafs and topped with frozen berries to close the evening.
“Coda Williamsburg brings in a fresh hospitality experience to Brooklyn inspired to bring guests
to the shores of Bali and Malibu and provide a breather from the hustle and bustle of NYC. Our
new boutique hotel and brand will aim to redefine the standards of Brooklyn hospitality via its
numerous seasonal programs, enhanced room designs and fun food and beverage offerings,”
said Ronny Baroody, Coda Williamsburg’s General Manager.
As the hotel readies itself for an influx of guests, the Coda Williamsburg feels promising and is one I highly recommend to anyone seeking impeccable customer and concierge services, a pet-friendly space to relax and break away from it all! What I enjoy most about Coda Williamsburg is the variety in enjoying what feels like time a night out in the city on rooftop and at the underground night club, with the accessibility of staggering back to my room if the night gets intense. Coda Williamsburg truly gives creature comforts away from home in an adult-friendly, mature setting; one that creates the perfect weekend getaway for lovers, night life goers, (and working professionals) alike!
Coda Williamsburg is located at 160 N 12th Street, between Bedford and Berry Streets, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
