The Wythe likes to keep things local. The boutique hotel is a converted old factory set near the waterfront of Williamsburg, Broooklyn and was renovated to maintain its historic charm. Its style follows a chic and understated aesthetic with no detail left ignored.
Furniture in the rooms is locally made with custom beds built from the building's reclaimed pine ceiling. Bathrooms are stocked with handmade, natural bath products stocked by New York company, Goldies. Even the wallpaper, murals, hand towels and light fixtures are created by local artists. The minibar and fridge is stocked with artisanal goodies from neighborhood shops. No room service here – the hotel encourages guests to leave their rooms and experience Brooklyn for themselves.

A bunk room fit for a band
These are not the bunk beds from your college dorm days. The Wythe Hotel in the heart of Williamburg, Brooklyn has four- and six-person band rooms perfect for large groups traveling together. Decor is smart with industrial chic flair.
Comfortable bunk beds flank the sides of the room and are are lined with luxurious linens and house private, flat screen televisions. The room opens to a lounge with overstuffed seating and a floor-to-ceiling window that offers expansive views of the Hudson and Manhattan skyline. Armoires, shelves and drawers built into the bunks provide plenty of storage. There are even two shower stalls so guests don't have to wait to take turns using the bathroom. The room is stocked with tons of plush towels and bulk-size, natural bath products.
Best of all, the location is walking distance to tons of bars, restaurants and shopping. Those feeling particularly lazy will find the hotel bar 10 steps down the hall – a hot spot among locals and visitors. Even if you're not in a band, you'll feel like a rock star during your stay.
After an exhausting day of flights culminating in a sunset landing in New York City, the best pick-me-up is a beer at the rooftop bar of this Williamsburg hotel. The view of Manhattan is unbeatable; it will make you fall in love with New York all over again—especially after a few brews.
You can catch a ferry to Manhattan; it's within walking distance of Wythe. Although, once the Empire State Building lights up, you may not want to give up your seat on this patio.
