Overview

A homey abode at a new, industrial-chic hotel in one of Brooklyn’s coolest enclaves, with a local shuttle

The Lowdown

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.
Amenities – Wi-Fi- Coffee and tea- Mini-fridge- Ironing board- Hair dryer- Individual climate control- Writing desk- iPhone dock- 42-in. flat-screen TV with premium cable

Location

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.

Our New Favorite Hotel in NYC

Wow, where do I start? We had a wonderful experience at the hotel, the service was top notch and the staff treated us like family. We especially appreciated Daisy, Dina, Oscar, Demetrius, Brandon, Jeannie, Jonathon, and Dwight. We had interactions with all of them before or during our stay and I must say they were incredibly professional, helpful and accommodating. We had one hiccup during our stay and the managerial staff took care of it and us quickly with kindness.

If you’re looking for a clean, stylish and comfortable (loved the king size bed and soak tub in our room) hotel with amazing staff in a hip, fun neighborhood - look no further! Book this hotel!

I almost forgot, the car service they offer is so convenient and the cherry on top!

Fantastic hotel

I see many guest houses in New York but this is the best in all. It has big rooms and it has TV as well as many luxurious things. It has big swimming pool and garden also. So visit this hotel and I also suggest that you go for friends.

We will be back!
