NU Hotel Brooklyn Review
The hip-yet-affordable NU, on one of Brooklyn's main nightlife and shopping streets, is perfect for visitors seeking a manageable taste of outer-borough New York—and the staff is eager to highlight the neighborhood's charms. Flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi, and hookups for your iPod or laptop add to the above-average-size rooms, and the minimalist white and gray color scheme is punctuated with eco-friendly flourishes like cork floors and organic cotton sheets. Just off the small check-in area downstairs is a quiet bar that serves small plates of Spanish food at night and free pastries with Starbucks coffee in the morning—but more fun can be had outside the front door.
