Willaiamsburg image for summit page'

Fifty years ago, Williamsburg was a neighborhood of industry. Today it's a bustling community full of creatives, dreamers, and doers meeting for a drink and making things happen. Located on Wythe Avenue and North 10th Street, The Williamsburg Hotel stands at the nexus of history and history in the making.

Supreme service with a Brooklyn twist. The Williamsburg Hotel is eight stories and 150 rooms encased in brick, glass, and Corten steel. Designed by London-based design firm Michaelis Boyd Studio (Babington House UK, Soho House Berlin), the double-height ceilings, natural finishes and eclectic style invite you to stay awhile.
