Andrew Tarlow, of Marlow & Sons and Roman’s, has set out to prove he’s more than a restaurateur with this 72-room waterfront textile factory turned hotel. That said, the gritty-glam property’s heartbeat will naturally be in his main-level dining spot, Reynard Brothers, and its courtyard (from $179 per night). 80 Wythe Ave., nr. N. 11th St., Williamsburg; 718-460-8000.
French designer Jacques Garcia transformed a Beaux Arts building into a Parisian-inspired hotel, decked out with a 200-year-old spiral staircase and claw-foot tubs. Giving the neighboring Ace Hotel some retail competition, the Nomad features fashion boutique Maison Kitsuné and Canadian accessories shop WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie (from $395 per night). 1170 Broadway, at 28th St.; 212-796-1500.
BPM (short for beats per minute) aims to be a hip-hop lover’s paradise, with owner D.J. Bijal blasting his soundtrack throughout the hotel’s lobby and rooftop lounge (slated to open late summer). The rooms do, however, offer solace from the party, with Frette linens on all beds and Gilchrist & Soames BeeKind toiletries (rooms from $139 per night). 139 33rd St., nr. Fourth Ave., Sunset Park; no phone yet.
