Bar Blondeau at Wythe Hotel

Wythe Hotel

Williamsburg is young, fashionable, and filled with things to do, and the Wythe Hotel — nested against the Brooklyn waterfront and near busy Bedford Avenue — is its perfect launchpad. Originally constructed in 1901, the Wythe is a lifestyle hotel with well-appointed rooms and the staff is in its own a reason to check. Led by Pete Lawrence, one of the greatest hoteliers of our time, the diverse team is starred by interesting, empowered, outside-the-box thinkers and doers. Don’t miss the sexy rooftop Bar Blondeau and renowned restaurant Le Crocodile — the food is remarkable!

Ace Hotel Brooklyn

If you have work to do in Brooklyn, Ace Hotel is where to do it. On the edge of bustling Downtown Brooklyn — a convenient transit hub for anywhere, you’d like to visit — rooms at the Ace are designed as an urban escape for creatives. Bonus: the hotel’s restaurant, As You Are, is helmed by Ace Hotel vet Chef Ryan Jordan and serves clever twists on classic fare.

Location: Downtown Brooklyn
Starting rate: $384

The Hoxton Williamsburg

Hoxton Williamsburg

With three restaurants, six bars, and a DJ, the Hoxton is a full-on play-cation. Pet-friendly and outspokenly welcoming to LGBTQ travelers, it’s also home to an in-house design studio, Ennismore. Hoxton partnered with Soho House to design its spaces, which feature residential vintage and soft pastels. Our favorite eatery is Kleins, a tasty mix of American and Mediterranean cuisine with a pleasant backyard.

Location: Williamsburg
Starting Rate: $459

The William Vale

The William Vale is luxe and relaxing — from the plush robes and slippers and balconies in every room to the rooftop bar, Westlight, and restaurant, Leuca. Options for wellness include an outdoor pool, an ice rink, and a full gym. Extra fun: Mr. Dips, a retrofitted 1974 Airstream serving nostalgic summery treats, is open in the summer in the hotel’s 15,000 square foot elevated green space.

Location: Williamsburg
Starting Rate: $575

1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge

Right under the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, the 1 Hotel is eco-design made luxurious. Zen is in the details: plants in every room, in-suite hammocks, local treats in the minibars, bamboo toiletries, plenty of books to read, and more. The views from both the rooms and the rooftop (which features a pool and bar) are stunning, and the access to the Brooklyn Promenade is unparalleled — this is your sign to rent a Citi Bike and explore.

Franklin Guesthouse

Greenpoint is a laid-back haven for families and creatives of all ages. Franklin Guesthouse is a handsome white townhouse by the water close to all the delights of the neighborhood, from Polish pastry shops to excellent cocktail bars and restaurants. It feels like the kind of apartment you wish you owned, with stocked kitchenettes and helpful staff. Bonus: there’s a complimentary car service within one mile.

Akwaaba Mansion

A hidden gem, Akwaaba Mansion is one of three homes purchased and converted to stunning inns by husband and wife team Glenn Pogue and Monique Greenwood (other locations in Philadelphia and the Poconos). The formerly dilapidated 1860 Italianate villa features 14-foot ceilings, ornate fireplaces, parquet wood floors, a glassed-in porch, and gaslight fixtures, complemented by modern amenities — oversized Jacuzzi tubs, plush robes, in-suite massages, and decor celebrating Black history.
