I strongly recommend The Boxhouse Hotel in Brooklyn to ANYBODY thinking of visiting New York. Not only are the rooms / apartments very spacious and well designed but the staff are wonderful and attentive 24 hours a day. Add to that the fact that you're situated a 5 minute walk away from the subway at Vernon Boulevard (1 stop and you're in central Station! 2 and you're in Times Square!) and the banks of the Hudson River which offer the best views of the Manhattan skyline.
Getting in and out (just as important when it's hectic) of Manhattan is so easy staying in this area that you'll soon realise how ideal the Boxhouse location is. Brooklyn is also a fantastic area to relax after the hustle of the city. Boxhouse offer complimentary taxi rides in the surrounding area where you'll find great restaurants, bars, clubs, bike rentals, grocery stores etc... 10 out of 10
