Right on the edge of McCarren Park, King and Grove Williamsburg benefits from North Brooklyn’s trendy, youthful atmosphere without sacrificing the comforts and serenity typical to a boutique hotel. Easy access to the city via subway makes this location as convenient for visitors as many Manhattan accommodations, and it’s a stone’s-throw away from most of Williamsburg’s buzzy dining and nightlife establishments. Even so, rooms don’t mimic the changeable hipster ethos in the surrounding neighborhood, hewing instead to a warm, modern aesthetic. Accommodations are defined by their clean lines and sophisticated, neutral colors; in each, dark gray walls, white bed linens, chocolate throws, and blond-wood floors are complemented by luxuries like huge wall-mounted flat-screen TVs, rain showerheads in the bathroom, and fluffy bathrobes. For Williamsburg locals and guests alike, a highlight of the property is the shallow saltwater pool on the back patio, where sunbathers sip drinks on padded deck chairs during sunny days. In the evenings, the rooftop bar also receives a steady flow of local clients; its minimalist design allows the focus to remain on the grand views of the Manhattan skyline in the distance.Pros
The hotel’s saltwater pool and outdoor patio are rare luxuries in New York City.
Rooms are spacious and comfortable, but don’t necessarily reflect their Williamsburg location.
