Stayed here a couple of weeks ago as I like Williamsburg and was tired of the usual Manhattan visit to NYC. Hotel is only a few mins walk from the L train that takes you into central Manhattan in minutes, so it's very simple. The hotel is a hip design, all concrete floors and hipster details. We stayed for four nights on a business trip and the rooms are beautifully clean and easy to live in (although the hotel is new , so how the rooms will look after some wear and tear is another thing).
1) There is no tea and coffee facility in the room and NO ROOM SERVICE at the hotel at all. If you feel like an early coffee whilst getting ready for work, you have to go down to the hotel cafe and order it yourself. How easy would it be to have a coffee machine in the room? I hated this aspect of the stay.
2) We asked for a quiet room as we had a busy work schedules, and thank god. On the second night of the stay the back of the hotel was taken over as a private hipster club which was insanely loud.
3)We were told that rooms above the cafe/restaurant can also be noisy into the evening.
4)The bar is very cool on the roof, but the penthouses are directly above so they must also be pretty noisy. Also, you can see straight into the penthouses from the bar, which must be sort of annoyinng.
5) The roof terrace bar is a sort of 'destination' spot for Williamburg locals and also Manhattan tourists looking for some 'edge'. Therefore the hotel is always stuffed with non-residents, and late at night you're sharing the elevator with pretty drunk people.
All in all it's fine midweek, and if you're really into hipster stuff and/or are young, then you'll like this place. I'm a bit over trendy posturing and men in too-tight skinny jeans, so I'll probably head back to Manhattan for my next trip to NY.
