    The Beekman
    The centerpiece of The Beekman, a landmark 1881 downtown building reborn as part of the Thompson Hotels group, is its nine-story Victorian atrium, with ornate wrought-iron banisters that spiral up to an enormous skylight. The 287 high-ceilinged rooms get their vintage feel from custom leather headboards and aged oak floors. Downstairs, acclaimed chef Tom Colicchio oversees Fowler & Wells, a modern American restaurant, and superstar restaurateur Keith McNally is behind the brasserie-style Augustine. From $619.

    1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge
    The green-minded 1 Hotels brand, which debuted in Manhattan last year, will liven up the lodging scene in Brooklyn’s DUMBO neighborhood when it opens at the end of 2016. The 194 rooms will be filled with ecofriendly touches—LED lighting, organic bedding—and the hotel car service will dispatch Teslas. Chef Seamus Mullen of New York City’s Tertulia will serve a farm-to-table menu in the restaurant as well as snacks at the rooftop bar, where views of the East River stretch all the way down to the Statue of Liberty. From $350.

    The Williamsburg Hotel
    Behind its newly erected industrial facade, The Williamsburg, a 150-room hotel in Brooklyn’s ultrahip Williamsburg, holds half a dozen spaces that offer an entire weekend’s worth of scenes, everything from an intimate subterranean bar to the skyline-facing rooftop pool that’s opening this spring. Upstairs, 150 light-filled rooms have tufted-leather headboards and midcentury reading lamps, and bathrooms are stocked with made-in-Brooklyn Apotheke toiletries. From $350.

    11 Howard
    Soho’s latest is 11 Howard, a 221-room hotel with a minimalist, Scandinavian-inspired aesthetic (light oak floors, rough-hewn wood furnishings, pink wool bed throws). The on-site restaurant Le Coucou is a destination in its own right: Chef Daniel Rose of Paris’s vaunted Spring relocated across the pond to oversee the French-inspired menu. From $400.

    The William Vale
    Not far from the Williamsburg Hotel, the 183-room William Vale opened this summer with a similarly social vibe. Guest rooms have a modern industrial style, with sleek gray chaises for lounging and a private balcony off every room. Top Manhattan chef Andrew Carmellini created the southern Italian restaurant Leuca and the rooftop Westlight bar, which serves high-toned street food (Mexican corn cones with lime aioli; sweet pea and kale samosas). The rooftop pool is not just for dipping a toe in—at 60 feet long, it’s the city’s largest hotel pool. From $350.
