One of Brooklyn’s first boutique hotels, Hotel Williamsburg, opened at 160 North 12th Street this week, the Brooklyn Paper reported.

Rooms at the 64-room, eight-story hotel, will start at $295 a night, the paper said, with the most luxurious room costing $3,500 a night.

The hotel, by Minneapolis-based hoteliers Jim and Ben Graves, has a cocktail lounge, a ground-floor restaurant and outdoor courtyard swimming pool. Its rooftop bar will be serving drinks until 4:00 a.m. every night (note: correction appended).

Next spring, the hotel will get some competition as Dumbo developers, the Walentas father and son team, open their own 73-room boutique hotel close by, at North 11th Street and Wythe Avenue — but William thinks the personal touch and the family’s Midwestern hospitality may keep the guests coming to Hotel Williamsburg.

“A couple of people gave our staff hugs when they checked out,” he told the Brooklyn Paper. “They said it’s their new home when they come to the city.” [Brookyln Paper]
