Brooklyn as a brand is strongly represented in this stylish Downtown Brooklyn hotel. Packed with gold-accented furniture, jewel-toned walls and plenty of plants, in-the-know millennials would be quite happy to move in here permanently. Especially when the 3,000-square-foot bar, the Distillary, offers a large outdoor deck big enough to host a party as well as plenty of craft beers and German-inspired food like sausages and pretzels.
The comfortably-sized rooms have a modern mid-century decor (as well the WiFi and built-in USB port the 21st century traveler needs). There's also a soon-to-open restaurant on the ground level and a ballroom to rent out for events in the basement. But most visitors just need to know that you're about ten minutes away from Dumbo (and that glorious view of the Manhattan skyline) and nearby subway stations on foot, and you're just one or two subway stops out of Manhattan. You're also walking distance from Barclays Center, home of the Brooklyn Nets, and City Point, where you'll find the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, a movie theater where you can order food and drinks to be brought directly to your seat.
If you're seeking sleek and friendly and don't mind (or prefer) being a bit out of the center of it all, this spot's got cool kid vibes to spare.
