Came across this little know hotel in Williamsburg. Williamsburg used to be a tough area but is becoming gentrified w several good restaurants and its safe to walk at night. Hotel has pool, bar, restaurant, and seldom used fitness center. Great outdoor roof top bar with view of Manhattan weather permitting. Rooms are smallish but trendy and very clean. Bands play in the park across from the hotel during the summer on Wednesdays... afterwards they show old movies. Local restaurants showcase their meals under "tented awning" type stalls along one side of the park. 4 blocks a way is a two stop subway connection to Union Square in Manhattan. I stayed here 8 times in 2012 while on business.
I paid $250-$320 per night depending on season.
