Owned by the Kash Group and managed by Warner Hospitality (known for their Hard Rock Hotel & Casino projects), The William is part of a new breed of extended-stay hotel. The minimum stay is 30 days, and rates start at $200 per night. The William is also boutique-sized — just 33 rooms — so it feel more like an artsy home than a hotel.
Each room is uniquely designed, with bright monochromatic color schemes, from sunflower yellow to royal blues — like a “livable three-dimensional painting,” as the hotel puts it. Plus rooms have Nespresso coffee machines, pillow-top mattresses and bathrooms stocked with L’Occitane amenities. Most rooms also have fully equipped kitchens and terraces.
The hotel’s food and beverage has made as much of a splash as the hotel. Restaurateurs Yves Jadot and Jason Hicks (of Jones Wood Foundry and Raines Law Room) opened the British tavern-style Peacock and downstairs Shakespeare pub, which reflect the Williams’ clubby history, with dark woods and fireplaces, countrified dishes like steak and chips and Lancashire hotpot, made with braised lamb and potatoes, and, of course, a huge selection of British beer. Which, come the warm weather, you can enjoy on the rooftop bar, due to open this spring.
Guests at The William are provided 24-hour front desk assistance and free passes to a nearby fitness centre. Several dining options are located within 500 yards. The William hotel offers self-catering accommodation with free Wi-Fi and panoramic views of New York City.
The William is 900 yards from Times Square, 1.5 miles from Central Park and 1 mile from Madison Square Garden.
