Highs & Lows

  • Walking distance to all of the hotspots, food fairs, restaurants, clubs and shops in Williamsburg.

  • Rooftop pool with sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline. It doesn’t get much better than that!

  • Breakfast, lunch or dinner at Harvey is delectable, and perfect for quick work meetings as well.

  • Literally, the bed in my room felt as if I was sleeping on a cloud. After a 10-hour flight to NYC, you realize just how an Uber-comfortable bed can change your life.
