Bask in the spotlight of Williamsburg at the Wythe Hotel, which is smack-dab in the center of the action. In true Brooklyn style, The Wythe occupies a refurbished factory a block from the waterfront, meaning you’ll get epic views of Manhattan from here. Rooms vary from plush lofts to more intimate bunk bed-style rooms, but all retain that in-vogue industrial chic design, with exposed brick and the pine rafters in their 13-foot ceilings. Plus, the floors are heated concrete. Every room features surround sound that can be controlled with your cell phone, and free wifi to boot. The Wythe offers a French restaurant called Le Crocodile, as well as Bar Blondeau on the roof. The hotel is minutes from the Brooklyn Flea, less than half a mile from the nearest subway station, and just down the street from neighborhood staples Brooklyn Bowl and the Brooklyn Brewery. A true New Yorker walks for their exercise, but if you need a little more, a stay at the Wythe also earns you free admission to the Brooklyn Athletic Club.
