Very stylish rooms. Not too big but all you need is there including a great bathroom. Pool area is very cool and the restaurant/bar on the top has the best view. On the other side of the street is a park.

This is the epitome of the pretentious hotel and the architects who designed it should be ashamed of themselves. Invariable it is the small things that make a difference. For example there is only one tiny hook to hang your towel in the bathroom. Where would two people hang two towels in the bathroom is something that did not bother the designers in the least. Of course the water in the designer shower does not all go into the drain and ends up outside, some of it in the bedroom itself. There is no place in the room to set your suitcase, which you have to leave on the floor, right in the middle taking up space. The (design) light switches are infuriatingly bad and do not work properly… All in all a rather disappointing experience.

I recently stayed two nights at King and Grove Williamsburg. From the moment I walked in the staff was friendly, courteous and very helpful as it was my first time staying in Williamsburg. The room was very clean and modern. It was the most comfortable bed I've had at a hotel and I travel a lot. The second night I sat at the bar and had drinks at the Elm. The bartenders were making fantastic drinks and both were very personable. Also, the open kitchen is a great touch! It's also only 3 blocks from the subway and the immediate area is filled with great restaurants. Anytime I come to New York in the future I will be staying here.

Beautiful Contemporary design with a very comfortable room. Cozy, functional and best mattress ever. Best sleep I have ever had in a hotel. Staff friendly and accommodating. Weather was cold and rainy, but staff provided us with umbrellas to make our outdoor ventures bearable. Location great for walking to restaurants and rooftop bars. Unfortunately the hotel rooftop was not open. Opens in May. The elm restaurant and bar superior, would like to see a casual menu offered in addition to the current dinner menu. Will definitely go back!

The King and Grove Williamsburg was perfect. The location is perfect for exploring Williamsburg and neighboring areas on foot. The room was really nice-modern, stylish and comfortable too and spacious for NY! The staff was exceptionally friendly and had great recommendations for where to go around town. We would stay here again and hope to do so soon when the amazing looking pool opens in spring. Thank you King and Grove!

Very impressed with this hotel. Very clean, conveniently located and incredibly friendly and accommodating. The room was large for a NYC hotel; bed was incredibly comfortable and quiet part of the city overlooking a park.

As a hotelier for a 5 star property, this place met every single expectation. Alberto is a superstar all the staff is extremely help full. The room was great very comfortable bed nice size. The hotel is in a very nice area. I highly recommend this hotel.
