This chic, glass-walled hotel abuts Williamsburg’s popular McCarren Park.

In a former factory by the waterfront of Willamsburg’s north side, this boutique property is hot as much for its 70 rooms as it is for its always-packed rooftop bar, The Ides, and it’s main floor restaurant, Reynard.

Who would stock a Manhattan mini-bar with a harmonica and furnish a bathroom with denim bathrobes?

People are still buzzing about the “new Brooklyn,” where each artisan establishment seems to out-craft the next. And the Wythe—near the Williamsburg riverfront—has become the crown jewel of the borough’s renaissance.

 mar 17Stylish and compact, this former members-only club is a well-designed secret among midtown hotels. The 65 smallish rooms have combed-plaster walls, chocolate-marble showers, and Honduran mahogany accents; TV's placed behind two-way mirrors are clever space-savers.

The three-bedroom guesthouse at Apple Pond Farm comes with a fully equipped kitchen and plenty of toys that will delight the kids. Rooms from $420 (five people, two nights).

A high-design (and high-profile) herald of change in a once-grubby neighborhood, the glass-façaded Rivington soars above the old brick tenements of the Lower East Side.

The rentals are simple and summery, like the town of Clayton itself, with screened porches and a view of the St. Lawrence River.

Opened in September, 2010,  this Modernist addition to SoHo has a permanent art collection and 114 rooms with natural linen bedding and reclaimed-wood floors. We love wall-size murals by area artists.

Most people don't think of midtown Manhattan as a place to chill out—but don't tell the Shoreham, a 177-room hotel that resembles a chic spa retreat.

The rooms at the Sherwood Inn—a former stagecoach stop—have lake views and fireplaces.

The city’s second property from Hyatt’s boutique brand—located directly across from the New York Public Library—has 184 loftlike guest rooms with 12-foot floor-to-ceiling windows and muted interiors by designer Tony Chi.
