This no-frills favorite has excellent service and is convenient not only to the arts, culture, and dining scenes that Williamsburg has become known for—but also to several subway lines and the Bronx-Queens Expressway, in case you want to get into the city. 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 cozy 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 also a small parking lot and complimentary Wi-Fi.
