Hotels in Brooklyn
Unlike Manhattan, Brooklyn isn’t bursting at the seams with hotels, but there are plenty of great choices for visitors to choose from. Those staying in North Brooklyn should consider staying at boutique Brooklyn hotels like the Box Hotel in northern Greenpoint, which offers its guests complimentary taxis to the subway, and the Wythe Hotel, located in the heart of Williamsburg. Meanwhile, those visiting the area on a budget should book a room at Brooklyn hotel New York Loft Hostel, located in the popular “Morgantown” area of East Williamsburg/Bushwick near great bars and restaurants. There are also a handful of hotels in Brooklyn in the borough’s central area like the Marriott Brooklyn Bridge in Downtown Brooklyn, which is great for businesspeople who want to be near Manhattan’s Financial District without actually staying there, or the Nu Hotel, a super-hip locale with loft-style rooms. If you’re looking for an incredibly quirky locale, try the Urban Cowboy B&B, a western-themed hotel in Brooklyn that looks like a cabin from the outside.
People are still buzzing about the “new Brooklyn,” where each artisan establishment seems to out-craft the next. And the Wythe—near the Williamsburg riverfront—has become the crown jewel of the borough’s renaissance.
The brick-and-steel Nu Hotel has 93 minimalist-chic rooms appointed with faux-sheepskin rugs, gauzy white curtains, and Brooklyn-centric artwork.
