I ended up staying in this hotel out of desparation, when everything else more centrally located was booked. What a surprise!!!!
The hotel is located in a semi-industrial site near the old Brooklyn Naval Shipyard. I didn't have a chance to check out the neighborhood, so I don't know what restaurants or other attractions are in the area.
The hotel is 1/2 block south of the B57 bus stop on the corner of Franklin and Flushing. In addition there are a number of other bus lines nearby, so you are very well connected if you are comfortable using NY's mass transit system. The bus trip to downtown Brooklyn takes about 15 minutes at rush hour.
The hotel itself was awesome. It reminded me of a W hotel. My room had a balcony, along with a small kitchenette with a refrigerator. Note: It didn't have any plates or silverware, so the kitchenette isn't 100% usable. The room was spotless. The entire hotel looked like it had just been built quite recently.
My room included a continental breakfast, that included REAL bagels (not the defrosted frozen variety you can buy at your super market). Most impressive was that this was served on real plates with real silverware.....
All for less than 1/2 the price of staying in a W.
