The Williamsburg Hotel

Brooklyn, New York

The hotel

In one of Brooklyn’s trendiest areas, the Williamsburg Hotel is in the perfect spot to enjoy some of the less-known New York treats. With quirky independent shops, bars, and spots to sit and enjoy brunch and a coffee. But it’s not all about the location. You can enjoy Med-inspired food, and a choice of bars including one with skyline views and DJ sets. Then there’s the seasonal rooftop pool, bike rentals and yoga classes – what more could you need? And with Manhattan just a taxi or metro-ride away, you’re never too far from the Big Apple.

This hotel is always a pleasure to stay at. The staff are always super nice and helpful. Pierre was exceptional and extremely friendly. He even updated my room to a king terrace free of charge. I will definitely be staying here again.

We did a staycation here to have an elopement wedding -- just the two of us. The staff was incredibly accommodating and helpful on super short notice; they made sure we had everything we needed and went the extra mile for a few little details around the music, lights, and cake. The water tower was a beautiful place for a very intimate gathering… Read more
We did a staycation here to have an elopement wedding -- just the two of us. The staff was incredibly accommodating and helpful on super short notice; they made sure we had everything we needed and went the extra mile for a few little details around the music, lights, and cake. The water tower was a beautiful place for a very intimate gathering for just the two of us, and we followed it with a night at the hotel where we ate pizza and drank champagne overlooking the city.

This hotel is beautiful; it has a "retro" feel to it and a lot of thought was put into the architecture. The King Terrace room was spacious, and had views of Manhattan and Brooklyn that you could wake up to, or draw the curtains if you preferred. The bathroom and bedroom were clean and comfortable. The complimentary toiletries smelt so good.… Read more
This hotel is beautiful; it has a "retro" feel to it and a lot of thought was put into the architecture. The King Terrace room was spacious, and had views of Manhattan and Brooklyn that you could wake up to, or draw the curtains if you preferred. The bathroom and bedroom were clean and comfortable. The complimentary toiletries smelt so good. Unfortunately, because of COVID, the restaurant and bar were not open to guests, but room service was available at their specified times. The staff were courteous and respectful; Pierre checked me in and was a delight. Overall I had a wonderful time here and would gladly return, preferably in the summer, post-COVID so I can get the most of the hotel and the Williamsburg area. Read less

The receptionists with the exception of Daniel need to work on customer service. I stayed 1 night for my birthday and it was a very underwhelming stay. Disappointed to say the least. Also the website specifically states that any guest staying 1-3 nights will NOT receive housekeeping. Yet 9am the next morning, housekeeping attempted to enter my room when checkout is 11a. I was startled and scared with the sound of someone attempting to get into my room. I’m just glad that I wasn’t in the bathtub. When I checked out at 9:30a because at that point I just couldn’t deal with my experience, I informed the receptionist and all she said was ohh really? Sorry? Just like that. Also check-in was at 3pm, I arrived at 2:40p and didn’t get a room key until 3:30p. When I went to collect the key, the other receptionist was dealing with a customer and acknowledged her birthday(while I had to tell my receptionist that it was my birthday) and he offered her a complimentary breakfast. Ask me what I was offered...yes you guessed it, nothing. I was given my room key and was sent on my way. I got to the elevator and wasn’t told how it worked. When I proceeded to go back to the receptionist who assisted, she was right by the elevator swiftly making an exit as her shift was over. She quickly showed me how to use the elevator and was gone.
