Visitors to New York City are well aware that Brooklyn, with its cool bars, artisanal eateries, homegrown shops, budding art centers, and much more is a bona fide destination in its own right. Now, an emerging crop of big-name and boutique hotels has arrived to accommodate the new wave of Brooklyn-based travelers. Hotels here typically touch on a tantalizing trifecta for travelers: space, value, and, oftentimes, views (across the East River to Manhattan). Yes, a stay in Brooklyn versus Manhattan gets you, quite simply, more for less. No sleep till Brooklyn, indeed!
