McCarren Hotel & Pool is a trendy glass-fronted building on the border of Williamsburg and right beside McCarren Park, which is home to 35 acres of running trails, multiple playgrounds, sports fields and an outdoor Olympic-sized pool. Just one stop from Manhattan on the L subway line, the area is buzzing with boutique shopping, eateries, bars, live music venues and other popular attractions, including Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn Bowl and Smorgasburg.

The rooftop restaurant and bar is perfect for enjoying cocktails, live music and views of the Empire State Building across the river, but the main draw is the heated pool and poolside bar. Popular with locals and guests alike, the pool is one of the largest in New York City. Guests receive free admission, towel service and can exclusively enjoy the pool from 7-11 a.m. before it opens to the public.

Thaimee, where chef Hong Thaimee pays tribute to the flavors and colors of her Thai childhood in Brooklyn, is another one of the on-site restaurants. Guests can choose from a price-fixed Thai tasting menu or a more casual a la carte menu and brunch is accompanied by live music.

Rooms are slick, with bamboo floors and views of McCarren Park or the pool. Bathrooms are particularly stylish and have glass-enclosed rainfall showers. Upgrade to a suite for your own balcony overlooking the park. The opulent penthouse has a sculpted soaking tub and two balconies with Manhattan views.
