A converted 19th-century warehouse in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, the Henry Norman Hotel offers bright, spacious rooms at a great value, and a wonderful opportunity to explore another corner of New York. Though the Henry Norman offers no on-site dining, a complimentary shuttle transports guests anywhere within a mile of the hotel — something I repeatedly took advantage of. I stayed in a Penthouse Loft Suite with Roof Deck , which starts at a very reasonable $299 a night. Similar rooms in nearby Williamsburg would easily cost over $800 per night. Alternatively, Standard Studio Loft rooms start at $169 a night, but I think the better value is a larger suite room. Read all Insider Picks hotel reviews here. When traveling to a new city, my first instinct is to stay in the center of town close to all the tourist attractions. But after a few visits, those crowded, busy neighborhoods start to look less appealing — especially if that city is New York. For those looking to go off the beaten path or experience a new borough, the Henry Norman Hotel in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn is an excellent option.
