The Best Room To Book at The Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn
Yesterday, we told you where to get the most killer view of Manhattan that's not actually in Manhattan at The Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn. Today, we're showing you more of the The Best Room to Book, which is Room 702, a Manhattan View King room.
In truth, all Manhattan Views at the Wythe will give you a view of the city but the rooms above the 6th floor rooftop bar are slightly bigger and have more windows from which to admire the view.
Other notable amenities in the Wythe rooms:
· All natural and locally made Goldie's Soap products are in the bathroom.
· The locally curated minibar has not only a bottle of Tito's vodka in the freezer and a $100 bottle of Kings County bourbon on the top shelf but also La Quercia prosciutto and Plymouth Cheddar in the refrigerator.
· The Wythe toile wallpaper which we love so much.
· A Wythe Hotel tote which you can use during your stay or buy for $20.
· Heritage G2 radios that look straight out of the 1960s but which actually have an iPod/iPhone hook up.
· Radiant floor heating, in case you were worried about the lack of an area rug.
· Free WiFi

Located a block back from the waterfront and across from Brooklyn Bowl, The Wythe is within walking (or biking) distance to everything else in Williamsburg you'd want to see. We recommend Berry Park for more, casual roof-topping and the Antica Pesa for insanely delicious and authentic Italian food. The L subway stop, however, is a few blocks away at Bedford and 7th, in case you are hauling luggage.
While these killer view rooms can go for over $500 a night on the weekends, The Wythe is not your typical luxury property in that it doesn't have room service (they do include a menu of delivery services), there's no parking (but plenty free parking on the street) and the bathrooms lack slippers and robes. At night, you will have to put up with some traffic from the visitors to the rooftop bar but the hotel made it clear to us that as guests, we had priority over entering the bar.
Still, we were perfectly comfortable during our stay. And again, how can you complain when you have this view?
Disclosure: We paid a media rate of $200 for this room on Sunday night.
