The William Vale is one of the the trendiest hotels in Williamsburg, long one of Brooklyn's hippest 'hoods. And the Vale Garden Residence is indisputably the best room in the house.
It's a stunning, 1,320-square foot duplex penthouse suite that boasts a wrap-around balcony with striking views of the Manhattan skyline. There's a 1,632-foot patio with an open air jacuzzi and plenty of space to eat, drink, sunbathe, and ponder the fact that you're luxuriating in the same baller suite where Nick Viall handed out roses on The Bachelor last season.
You'll find L’Occitane en Provence toiletries in the spa-like bathroom, and Frette linens on the bed. There's a large flat screen TV and, thankfully, a sizable fridge where you can chill plenty of wine, beer and Champagne needed for entertaining guests.
Should you care to leave your private oasis, take the elevator to the Vale's popular rooftop bar, Westlight, which draws crowds of young revelers who wait in long lines to catch unobstructed 360-degree views. And if your jacuzzi gets too crowded, the Vale also has the city's longest hotel pool at 60 feet, situated on a 5,000-square foot pool deck.
The 183 room (and 25 suite) hotel sits between McCarren Park and the Williamsburg waterfront. It's a relatively quiet slice of Billyburg, even though the hotel literally overlooks hotspots like Output and Brooklyn Bowl, and is close to the Music Hall of Williamsburg, Nitehawk Cinema, Knitting Factory, Smorgasburg, and a ton of great restaurants and bars.
In the mood to seriously splurge? Check out the Vale's new High Roller Package, which includes a day in the Vale Garden Residence, two complimentary bottles of rosé, and a reserved cabana at the pool, along with light fare and cocktails under the direction of award-winning chef Andrew Carmellini.
But don't forget your wallet: Nightly rates for the package start at $12,000 on weekdays and $15,000 on weekends.
