The Wythe
A five-year restoration and renovation project transformed a factory on the Williamsburg waterfront, originally built in 1901, into the stylish but laid-back Wythe Hotel. This property has a distinct Brooklyn stamp, from the Brooklyn-made wallpaper to the Brooklyn-sourced minibar. The little details here stand out, including concrete floors with under-floor heating and the use of reclaimed wood (from the former factory) in the ceilings. The spacious lofts are particularly noteworthy for their floor-to-ceiling views of the Manhattan skyline and standalone pedestal tubs. Visitors and New Yorkers mingle over cocktails on the rooftop bar and at breakfast meetings in the casual restaurant from the man behind Brooklyn dining institutions Marlow & Sons and Diner.

Neighborhood Vibe
The Wythe hotel is in the heart of North Williamsburg. Both the Brooklyn Brewery and the concert venue/bowling alley Brooklyn Bowl are within a block's walk. The main artery of Williamsburg, Bedford Avenue, is a short stroll away; this strip is home to some of the neighborhood's best dining options, including Maison Premiere. The Bedford Avenue L stop, with access into Manhattan, is about a 10-minute walk from the front door. Beyond Williamsburg, guests could also easily explore neighboring Greenpoint. In season, Smorgasburg (Brooklyn Flea's food market) is nearby along the East River.

Local Luxuries at the Wythe
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.

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.

A Room with a Brew
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.

Best Bar View of the Manhattan Skyline: The Ides
I would say apart from the Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Centre, this is my favourite view of Manhattan.

It is a jawdropping view. Even though it was a rainy day, this was the perfect backdrop to have a Dark and Stormy and take in the (hipster) scene.

I highly recommend visiting in the afternoon if you are visiting on a weekend. I have heard it can get crowded and quickly.

Another note: it is VERY difficult to get a cab from the Wythe, especially if you are going into the city.
