This no-frills favorite has excellent service and is convenient not only to Williamsburg's arts, culture, and dining scenes, but also to the subway and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, the latter handy should you want to get into Manhattan via car. The simple lobby has a sunny breakfast area that serves cereal, pastries, and juice (and coffee and fresh fruit all day). Rooms are economical in both size and features, though perfectly comfortable with down comforters and plaid curtains. "Elite" rooms at the back of the hotel and above the fourth floor have views of the Manhattan skyline (and cost extra). There's a small parking lot and complimentary Wi-Fi.
