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
The accommodations were beautiful, clean and felt like a nice home away from home, with everything you might need. But above all, the service throughout our stay was perhaps the best we have ever experienced. Everyone — from the front desk staff, to the housekeepers, to the drivers — was friendly and genuine. In addition to being helpful with general questions, they went above and beyond during our stay. Unfortunately we had to take a family member to the hospital during our stay there and the staff was extremely caring. It made a tremendous difference as we went through an unexpected difficult time during our trip. We would 100% recommend Franklin Guesthouse and would definitely book again.
Excellent. Good location. Very clean. People very kind and helpful and always smiling. The Rooms are clean, spacious and very nice the choice of furniture and little and curious objects. Very good food at The Restaurant the Madre inside the hotel. It is the third time that i am going there and it is always a beautiful experience. It feels like home. Thankyou all of you!
My husband and I visited Brooklyn for a concert on Friday evening. We were pleased to have found accommodations at the Franklin Guesthouse. It was absolutely a gem of a place! We were greeted by such a warm and friendly staff welcoming us with their smile. The place smelled delightful. We were shown to our loft suite and it was terrific. It looked to be brand new. The place was spotless. I even did the “finger dust test” and it passed! Not an ounce of dust... the linens were laundered freshly, floors were clean and shiny. The bathroom was filled with luxurious towels and toiletries. The room was spacious and I even joked how I would love a NY flat just like this. Whoever designed the room did a stellar job.
It also had a ton on amenities if you wanted to bring food and cook.
The next morning I enjoyed a workout and the sauna.
We are looking forward to visiting again and enjoying another stay at the Franklin Guesthouse.
