Wythe Hotel, New York, USA
This fantastic hotel located in Williamsburg, the hippest neighbourhood of Brooklyn, won't disappoint. Though it's in a quiet street, a notable contrast to the full-on experience that is most of Manhattan, there's a lively nightlife scene just a couple of blocks away, with boutique stores, cafés, bars, restaurants and clubs. The hotel was originally a factory and has kept lots of the original features, with swish décor made up of polished concrete, cast-iron pillars, exposed brick and floor-to-ceiling metalled windows all boosting the hip vibe. The ground floor restaurant and sixth floor bar/restaurant are buzzing in the evening and offer some innovative dishes and great cocktails. Manhattan is easily accessible too.
