As if to steal a little bit of thunder away from the flashy William Vale Hotel ahead of its Sept. 6 opening (the place already has a Burning Man-inspired pool party on the books), the neighboring Wythe Hotel is offering half-price rooms to Brooklyn residents during Labor Day weekend. Which means that, as long as you can show proof of BK address, a bunk-bed room that’s normally $265 is now $132, a Brooklyn-view queen room that’s normally $325 is now $162, and a Manhattan-view king room that’s normally $465 is $232.
That’s still a chunk of change, but it’s a lot cheaper than whatever you were kidding yourself into thinking you could afford to rent in Montauk. And hey, you’ve still got a view of the water, even if it’s the East River.
Of course, even at these halved rates, it’s debatable whether a staycation in a hotel is worth it, given that Airbnb rentals are rampant in Williamsburg and Greenpoint. For $230, you can probably find an “AUTHENTIC artists loft with charming ANTIQUE COFFEE GRINDER.” But let’s face it, you’re only doing this because your parents are in town and you need a place to put them up, and it’s just too creepy thinking about them messing around with some random AirBNBer’s Sybian. So, Wythe Hotel it is.
