Brooklyn Heights, the upmarket New York City neighborhood, sits beside the East River. Lying in the shadow of the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, the leafy district contains many of the hippest hotels in NYC.

Brownstones typify the area known as “America’s first suburb,” which has been home to illustrious figures including playwright Arthur Miller, civil rights activist WEB Du Bois and (briefly) President George Washington. Manhattan may be just a stop away, but for many visitors, this salubrious address is now a bigger draw.

Business travelers and event planners love the enormous Navy Ballroom and the Secret Side Bar – an al fresco venue with winter igloos, games, free popcorn, affordable drinks and a buzzing urban ambience. High-tech (everything here is smart), accessible, pet-friendly and deeply cool, the Tillary has soundproofed windows and Frette linens to encourage a restful night’s sleep in the heart of the neighborhood.

Locally themed murals grace the walls at this 93-room boutique residence, after New York street artists were commissioned to craft signature creations reflecting the heritage of the neighborhood. The result is an edgy and colorful decor that’s unique to the hotel – add your own mark by scrawling on the chalkboard wall in your bathroom. This arty vibe is offset by an otherwise minimalist aesthetic and sleek modern furnishings.
