Atmosphere: Trendy, Busy, Warm, and Inviting
Staff: Hip, Young, and Friendly.
Average room price: $435/plus taxes.
Room: Room 612 is located in the far corner of the hotel, which is great for guests seeking a bit of privacy. The room itself is small but cozy and a large window lets in a lot of natural light. By the door is a large mirror that you can check yourself out in before stepping out into the trendy Williamsburg neighbourhood.
The bathroom is clean and is stocked with delightful Malin + Goetz bath products. Additionally, the glass enclosed rain shower delivers the right amount of water pressure.
A few steps into the room, you will see the king size bed, which features freshly white Frette Linens. The mini bar is well-stocked and a flat screen TV faces the bed at a good angle. There is ample counter space for you to get yourself organized on and put down your bags.
Room Bonus: Private corner room.
View: The large window reveals the salt water pool and the paradise-like seating area below.
Beds: The Frette Linens are soft to the touch and the pillows have just the right amount of firmness.

Bonus: Free wifi and access to the pool during your stay.
