The restaurant portion of Wm. Mulherin’s Sons in Fishtown has been open for exactly one year now to rave reviews. But while we love a picture-perfect cocktail and good meal as much as the next person, here at Curbed what we’ve really been waiting for is the opening of the hotel.
Well, the wait is over, because Wm. Mulherins Sons announced via a New York Times article that it is now officially accepting reservations for its four vintage hotel rooms located right above the restaurant.
As the article notes, all four rooms are designed for either overnight or extended stays, since they all come with full kitchenettes and in-unit laundry. And like their downstairs neighbor, a lot of the original details from the building, a former distillery, have been kept intact or repurposed. For example, an old elevator shaft functions as a skylight in one room, while an original Fairbanks No. 5 Platform scale is in another.
Nightly rates start at $227, and checking in is pretty simple: Just head to the restaurant where the hostess will have the keys waiting.
Take a peek into some of the Wm. Mulherin’s Sons rooms below.
The opening of the hotel marks the first for Fishtown, although more are on the way for what readers voted as the Curbed Cup Neighborhood of the Year. Developer Roland Kassis’ Proto Hotel is in the works, and Postgreen Homes has chosen Fishtown as its second location for its “invisible service” boutique hotel Lokal.
