The Manhattan View King Room might just be the best room to book in New York but as you can understand by the name, it is not on Manhattan but in Williamsburg at the Wythe Hotel with
“killer views” over Manhattan.
The other great thing about this room:
the Goldie´s Soaps products in the bathroom,
the well stocked minibar with La Quercia prosciutto and Plymouth Cheddar.
the Heritage G2 radio that looks like it is something from 1960s but you can hook up your iPod/iPhone
I love the wallpaper…. when you get up closer you see that the wallpaper actually depicts little street scenes of Williamsburg, from the street signs to the architecture of the Greek Orthodox church on the next block.
Don´t miss a thrilling helicopter ride over New York. Get ready for a spectacular aerial views of Manhattan. It will be a memory for life!
There are several different tours to choose from.
Photographer/director Christian Kozowyk and his crew recently took a daredevil ride and captured the whole thing on video. The video is best viewed without the sound turned on.
……and when you book a tour, I promise you will not ride without the window…..

Here you are situated right in West Village, where you can experience your stay here as a local. The village – bounded roughly by the Avenue of the Americas and the Hudson River, and by Houston and 14th Streets, is a mash-up: bohemian but buttoned down, timeworn but modern, artsy but corporate: the place whose quaint historic district of 19th-century town houses collides with Greater Manhattan’s boxy grid at a 45-degree angle, in a manner at once diverse and symbolic.
