New-kid-on-the-block, The William Vale is an all-balcony building, meaning guests have a stellar view no matter their room’s orientation—we recommend a corner suite, the panoramic views, all-glass bathroom (lie in the tub and take in the Manhattan skyline), and beautifully appointed living room are so worth it, especially if you’re rooming—or planning on entertaining—a few friends. Located in what was once a neighborhood of abandoned buildings, adjoining Wythe St. is now packed with incredible breakfast spots (try Meyers Bageri or Sunday in Brooklyn), bars, and great boutiques. The accommodations are Scandinavian in style with clean lines and unfussy furniture in a neutral palate, intended not to detract from the majesty of the city views. In keeping with the neighborhood’s creative spirit, the hotel regularly hosts artistic and wellness-oriented events from chakra healing with a shaman, to meditation and letter pressing at their stunning, water-facing, rooftop bar that’s packed to the rafters at night.
