“Loved it!”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Absolutely loved this hotel. Great rooms, great bar, amazing restaurant. Not close to any major roads which is a good thing in New York City, otherwise it is too loud. But top marks all around. Fairly affordable as well by NYC standards.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in January 2013.

Getting to the hotel: We arrived at Newark Liberty International Airport and took a taxi to the hotel in Brooklyn. Getting the taxi was very easy, the cost was very reasonable, and the travel time was good considering the traffic and time of day.

Check-in: The check-in process was easy, quick and the hotel staff were friendly.

The room: We stayed in one of the newly built suites. The design, fixtures and fittings of the suite were of a very high quality. The view from the suite to Manhattan Island was very good and quite amazing.

The location: The hotel is in a good location within Brooklyn. There are lots of bars, restaurants and other amenities all within walking distance. We also walked from the hotel, to the Brooklyn Bridge, and then onto Manhattan Island. We also took the subway. There is a subway station within walking distance to the hotel, and the trip on the subway from the station to central Manhattan Island takes only a few minutes.

The restaurant: We had breakfast in the restaurant that is on the ground level of the hotel. The menu was well designed and priced. The restaurant staff were also vey helpful. Overall the quality of the food was good too.

Room Tip: Please note, there is no swimming pool or room service. However there is a comprehensive mini-bar.

Excellent stay here for three nights between Christmas and New Year (unexpectedly an extra night in a Brooklyn Queen, and two in a Bunk room).

Both rooms were spacious and beautifully designed, with super high ceilings, polished concrete floors with underfloor heating, the most amazing walk in showers - excellent lighting, and well equipped mini-bar and luxury snacks carefully chosen from local produce. Very comfortable beds and crisp white bedlinen. There was a digital radio/iPod doc in the Queen, which we'd have loved in the Bunk too.

The view of the Manhattan skyline from the 6th floor bar is truly incredible.

Staff were very friendly and welcoming.

Next time, we will treat ourselves to the Manhattan View King room!!

The hotel itself and location are great. Williamsburg is interesting and very accessible to Manhattan. The lobby staff made great first impression and the restaurant, Reynard, serves food that is hard to beat. Why a mixed review? There is no room service, no ability to get anything at the restaurant to take to your room, and pubs adjacent that want a cover charge to enter to get takeout. The sixth floor bar, while hosting a spectacular view of Manhattan, is staffed by the most pretentious bartenders on the planet. So, choose what's important to you and choose for yourself.

We've been there in busy December which is not the best time to find a on the one hand good and on the other not too expensive hotel in NYC.

We got a Manhattan view king room which makes us smile every day again. The view is amazing!
Talking about the hood there could be no better place in North Williamsburg. You can walk to Berry Ave as well as to Bedford Ave in a few minutes. Shops, Bars, Bagels, whatever you need...

If you want a nice view ride to Manhattan take the ferry at the 6th street and you'll be in Uptown Manhattan (34th street) within 15 minutes and for only 4 Dollars each.

We heart a lot about the "rude door" at the Wythe, but we couldn't confirm this.
We walked in and out every day and we always looked in friendly faces.

Room Tip: Fifth floor Manhattan view!

My husband and I checked in to the Wythe Hotel on Thursday evening and out on Monday afternoon. We were there to visit our kids and to spend time exploring Brooklyn and seeing the holiday sites in Manhattan. Our room on the 7th Floor at The Wythe was beautiful with a breathtaking view of Manhattan. The bed was incredibly comfortable and all of the room comforts were perfect. We had dinner in The Reynard Restaurant, late the first evening. The menu is eclectic and fun and our oyster and rabbit stews were delicious. We dined on delicious breakfasts there almost every morning including a swordfish bialy and ham, egg and cheddar croissants. The staff at both the hotel and the restaurant are friendly, helpful and just the right amount of chatty. We would highly recommend this hotel. Choose the Manhattan view for the best experience.

Room Tip: Request a view of Manhattan. It is breathtaking.

The most difficult part of our recent stay at the Wythe Hotel was learning how to spell and pronounce its name. After that, it was a remarkably relaxing and comfortable stay. Our rear corner third floor room looked out over commercial buildings and up to the Manhattan skyline. The almost floor to ceiling industrial, architecturally appropriate, retrofit windows (which could be covered by roll-down scrim-like screen material, full shades or both) could actually be opened...for me, a real treat. And, in spite of the Wythe's location in a built-up (not recently!) neighborhood, there was little noise and no residential or office space looking in. The only distraction was the occasional noise from a moving chair on the concrete floor above. Other than the bedding, there was no softening of the space by drapery or carpeting...and it wasn't missed. The clean space was warmed by the wooden planked ceiling and wonderful radiant heat from the sealed concrete floor. It was actually cozy! The bathroom was equally well-designed and somewhat funky. No tub, but an open shower with a solid floor to ceiling glass wall and a drain well-positioned in the center of a geometric tile design. All that was missing in the room was a proper bar of soap (can't stand the squirt bottles for anything other than shampoo) and more commodious drawers for clothing (but, as a long-term stay at the Wythe is unlikely, the clothing storage is less important). Overall, the room offered all the comfort one would want...and more!
We were in Brooklyn to see the Stones at the new Barclays Center and had intended to spend most of our time on the long weekend in Manhattan, but the location of the Wythe and the treats that are nearby in Willamsburg kept our interest and attention and we never left Brooklyn. The safe and pedestrian-friendly neighborhood is full of treats, from hole-in-the-wall restaurants to funky retail stores. However, a short ride gets you to Atlantic Avenue which has everything for everyone (almost better thn Warren Street in Hudson!).
Unexpected treats were being able to dine at a superb restaurant, Reynard, on the Hotel's first floor or having a late night cocktail on the sixth floor looking out at glimmering Manhattan.
When I collect enough adjectives, I'll review Reynard.
Lastly, although at first turned off by the lack of valet parking, it was remarkably easy to park nearby on the street...and no meters...no "resident-only" zones, and no tickets!
To sum it up, the Wythe was a perfect getaway joint in a neighborhood loaded with discoveries. Get there before it gets yuppified!
