for years i have thought about exploring Brooklyn by actually staying IN Brooklyn. A friend and I stayed mid-week for a few days, and loved the easy ambience, the generous breakfast buffet and the accessibility to Cobble Hill, downtown Brooklyn , and further afield Brooklyn spots like Fort Greene---and Manhattan. We shared one of the king rooms, and-- except for my inability to make the in-room coffee maker work--this hotel was terrific. We had miserable weather--so i would love to return, and take advantage of those bikes for rent on to the streets and see how compelling that really is. Getting back and forth to the mainland (Manhattan) was simple-- there are several subways within blocks (even if it's raining) from the hotel; and the restaurant, bakery, shopping options are just steps from the hotel. Right now brooklyn does seem to be the center of the western universe.
