Sadly, you can only catch a ride if you’re a guest of the hotel

If you thought Williamsburg couldn’t get any quirkier, think again. One of the neighborhood’s newest luxury hotels, the uneventfully named Williamsburg Hotel, has just welcomed one of its anticipated amenities: a pink and white chauffeured tuk-tuk.

What’s a tuk-tuk you ask? Allow us to explain. A tuk-tuk is a three-wheeled vehicle widely used in India and parts of South East Asia,sometimes referred to as a Ricksha, depending on the geography.

Rides are only offered to hotel guests and rightfully so. According to Bedford and Bowery, the 150-room, located at 96 Wythe Avenue, has rates that range from $250 to a steep $600/night.

The tuk-tuk isn’t the only cool amenity brought forth from The Williamsburg Hotel. A water tower bar, rooftop pool, and five other bars are just a few of the other features that hotel guests will get to enjoy during their stay. As for the rest of us, we’ll get to enjoy watching the tuk-tuk make its shuttle runs along Bedford Avenue.

60 degrees in January calls for a Tuk-Tuk ride ☀️ give us a honk if you see us around the hood today #twhbk
