Brooklyn's trendy hotel scene attracts visitors from around the world. The McCarren Hotel & Pool boasts one of New York City's largest heated outdoor swimming pools.
McCarren Hotel & Pool -- The hotel offers upscale but spare mid-century design and Nespresso machines in every suite.
The Hilton Brooklyn -- This new property in Brooklyn's Boerum Hill neighborhood was once a rope factory and that theme is carried throughout the property.
The carpet design in the rooms has hints of interlocking ropes, reflecting the building's history. In some areas, custom-made wallpaper depicts shipbuilding scenes.
The Williamsburg Hotel -- The hotel is in the middle of a rolling opening, so just two floors of rooms are open.
The plush rooms have brass fixtures in the bathrooms, quilted leather headboards and velvet couches, and yet pets are still welcome.
The William Vale -- This 22-story, 183-room Williamsburg hotel offers sweeping views of Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Even guests who don't book the Gotham Corner Suite at the William Vale can enjoy the view because every room has a balcony.
Wythe Hotel -- Housed in a former factory built in 1901, the Wythe Hotel retains the building's original pine beams and factory windows.
The Ides Bar at the Wythe serves classic cocktails and lobster sliders and other small plates, along with views of Manhattan.
1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge -- The newest member of the Brooklyn hotel scene, the latest hotel from the 1 Hotel brand opened in February in the Dumbo neighborhood.
Many of the hotel's materials are local or reclaimed, including pine beams from the former Domino Sugar factory in nearby Williamsburg.
