Mapping the Many Hotels of Williamsburg Present and Future

View as Map

Developers recently caught wind of the fact that Williamsburg is a place where out-of-towners might like to stay and started slapping up hotels left and right. In addition to such popular places as the Wythe Hotel and the King & Grove Williamsburg, which both opened in 2012, there are a bunch of lesser known projects that already existed or are in the process of being developed. Plus, the neighborhood has some more affordable hostels if you're not in the business of spending multiple hundreds per night on a room. We've put all the Williamsburg hotels (well, all the ones we could think of) including the as-of-yet-unbuilt ones on one handy map.

1. King & Grove Williamsburg

Copy Link
160 North 12th Street
Brooklyn, NY 11211

This 64-room hotel has a rooftop bar, lounge, and pool. Rooms come with a flat-screen TV, a refrigerator, and an iPod docking station, and there's room service available.

2. Hotel Le Jolie

Copy Link
235 Meeker Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11211

Described (by us) as "that odd boutique hotel next to the BQE," the Hotel Le Jolie is apparently popular with aging rock stars.

3. Pointe Plaza Hotel

Copy Link
2 Franklin Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11249

Rates at the Pointe Plaza start around $100/night. Yelp reviewers are mostly transfixed with the fact that it is located in a primarily Hasidic neighborhood.

4. Wythe Hotel

Copy Link
80 Wythe Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11249

Probably Williamsburg's most well-known hotel, the Morris Adjmi-designed Wythe has 70 rooms.

5. Sumner Hotel

Copy Link
22 Sumner Place
Brooklyn, NY 11206

The Sumner Hotel, located off the JMZ line, also has rates starting around $100/night and offers free continental breakfast.

6. Condor Hotel

Copy Link
56 Franklin Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11205

Technically in Bed-Stuy but who's counting, the Condor Hotel, developed by hoteliers Zelig Weiss and Zalman Glauber, has something called "Condor moments," which it describes thusly: "Condor 'moments' are the result of both planned and spontaneous guest interactions." So that sounds weird, but it seems like a pretty nice hotel.

7. New York Loft Hostel

Copy Link
249 Varet Street
Brooklyn, NY 11206

The New York Loft Hostel looks pretty nice for a hostel, and the reviews online are mostly positive. It allows a maximum stay of 21 days and has storage available fore a mere $3/day.

8. B Hotel & Hostel

Copy Link
341 Broadway
Brooklyn, NY 11221

The B Hotel & Hostel advertises its "multi-language friendly staff" and its common areas which include a TV, computers, and a ping-pong table.

9. 175 Broadway

Copy Link
175 Broadway
Brooklyn, NY 11211

The team that redid the Williamsburgh Savings Bank is also planning a towering 40-story hotel for the lot next door. Last we heard they were looking for funding, although it has been intimated that the project is moving forward.

10. 96 Wythe Avenue

Copy Link
96 Wythe Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11249

Although the insane design from HWKN that appeared on the internet a couple months ago is not actually in the cards, there is going to be a hotel built on the site, a block from the Wythe Hotel. We just don't know who developer Heritage Equity Partners has selected as the architect.

11. 500 Metropolitan Place

Copy Link
500 Metropolitan Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11211

Joseph Chetrit's brother Meyer is planning a 14-story hotel with spaces for restaurants/bars and retail and condo units on top for 500 Metropolitan Place. The architect was originally going to be Gene Kaufman (a Chetrit family favorite) but he has been replaced by Kutnicki Bernstein.

12. 55 Wythe Avenue

Copy Link
55 Wythe Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11249

Yet another one on Wythe, a one-story warehouse at 55 Wythe Avenue is being replaced by a 20-story, 183-room hotel from developers Zelig Weiss and Zalman Glauber, of Condor Hotel fame.

13. The Pod Hotel

Copy Link
626 Driggs Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11211

Charles Blaichman filed plans in January for a new five-story Pod Hotel with around 255 rooms. The building will be designed by Garrison Architects, who were, last we heard, weighing the pros and cons of modular construction.
