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
We really enjoyed our stay at the FG. Welcoming and attentive staff. Convenient location to ramble around Greenpoint and Williamsburg. Good access to MTA and East River Ferry. Our room on the second floor was modern. We enjoyed having a kitchenette and the eclectic Knick knacks in our room.
What a great place to stay! It couldn't have been more perfect. The accommodations were very nice. The hotel was an easy walk to the subway and a quick ride to Manhattan. It is my first choice always when traveling to NYC.
We booked two rooms for our party of seven for spring break (ages 10 to 85). The hotel is exactly like the photos online, and we were all very happy. We used the nearby ferry a lot ...only two short blocks away. We would totally recommend and stay there again.
Loved our room, bright, airy and shiny clean. Gorgeous interiors. Fantastic position, close to subway. Car ride available. Helpful and lovely staff. All the extras you need to help make your stay comfortable and easy. Great value.
Unless you need to stay in Manhattan for any reason, this is a great option to get a lot more for your dollars. The hotel is new and even the small rooms have enough space for a couple with a good size mini fridge and closet space. The bathroom is modern and clean and the toiletry are of good quality. If you get one of the big rooms and you get a full kitchen and a sofa bed.
The hotel is located on a gentrified neighborhood with lots of nice restaurants and two blocks way of a subway station that can connect to most of the subway lines of Manhattan. The hotel also has a car service during the day that can take you to a subway hub in 5 minutes that is one station way from Grande Central Station.
