Crash Here: Williamsburg, Brooklyn Hotel Guide

Location is Key: Choosing a Hotel in Williamsburg or New York City with the Best Access to North Brooklyn’s Hotspots

A visit to New York City is not complete without checking out what’s happening across the river in the hip capital of Williamsburg. Everyone will find something to appreciate in this vibrant enclave of great restaurants and bars, cool shops, art galleries, street art, waterfront splendor, and exciting nightlife. The best way to experience all that the neighborhood has to offer is to try to snag a room at one of the area’s three hotels. Another good option is to stay at a hotel in Manhattan that is close to the L subway line or the East River Ferry, allowing for easy travel to and from Williamsburg. Keep in mind that choosing a hotel in South Brooklyn neighborhoods may not make for an easy trip to Williamsburg. See my Brooklyn map. Here are my suggestions for hotels with easy access to the action.
