I've been to New York before and stayed in the Midtown area. My favourite spot was Brooklyn and I always thought that when I returned I'd try and stay there rather than in Manhattan.
I've found the Brooklyn Marriott but it looks a bit too big and impersonal.
Does anyone know of any smaller, intimate (but not ridiculously expensive) hotels iN Brooklyn? If it's got some bars and nice restaurants on its doorstep, than that would be fantastic!
