Greenpoint is widely thought of as one of ever-trending Brooklyn’s next frontiers, attracting artists and fresh-out-of-college intellectuals faster than you can say “skinny jeans.” When you come to New York, you’re going to want to visit this hipster ‘hood, and when you visit, you’re going to want to stay somewhere as cool and creative as the natives. Choose Franklin Guesthouse, where every industrial-chic suite and loft is styled like an apartment, so you can also feel like a native yourself.
In addition to these slick abodes, the property offers a sauna, plus a fitness center, so you can keep off the weight from those Smorgasburg ramen burgers. The rest of the time, hit the subway, or stick around and pound the pavement. In addition to being a hub for up-and-coming culture, Greenpoint, sharing McCarren Park with neighboring Williamsburg, is an oasis for nature – which not all of its Manhattan counterparts can say for themselves. And why not be where the grass is greener?
Lofts and suites
No miniature, Manhattan-style rooms here. That’s not how they do things across the river – at least not at Franklin Guesthouse. Here, you’ll have a spacious, apartment-style loft or suite to call your home, complete with retro-inspired, industrial-chic décor; cozy hardwood floors; cool, contemporary art; and a luxe, en-suite bathroom.In the open-plan Studio loft, you’ll have one queen bed. Deluxe Loft suites, meanwhile, contain a 3/4 wall partition, which separates the bedroom from the living area. In these abodes, you’ll have a king bed, plus a comfy sofa bed.

Franklin Guesthouse is right in the heart of vibrant and cozy Greenpoint, Brooklyn’s northernmost neighborhood and one of its most charming. Adjacent to hipster hotspot Williamsburg, this former Polish enclave is today a welcoming mix of old and new, home to loads of bars, restaurants, boutiques and, of course, plenty of kielbasa vendors. You’ll be able to explore your outer-borough home base with ease, thanks to the hotel’s complimentary local shuttle and nearby Citi Bike rentals. And when the big city (that would be Manhattan, directly across the East River) beckons, you’re just minutes from the G subway line and – should you prefer the scenic route – the East River Ferry.
How to Get There
All good things to say. We stayed for four days, so we felt a bit overwhelmed by the price, but once in a while you just have to splurge. I was there for my daughter's art exhibit, and enjoyed the surrounding area of Greenpoint.
I had an overnight business trip and Franklin Guesthouse was more than perfect! The staff was beyond amazing and the rooms were superb! Wish I had to stay longer. I will definitely be back to Franklin Guesthouse
We were extremely comfortable at Franklin Guesthouse, actually cozy! The desk staff and the drivers were courteous, friendly and quite accommodating. The location / neighborhood is great. This was our second stay there, and we can't wait to return.
