I flew into NYC for the weekend and at the recommendation of a friend decided to try staying outside Manhattan - specifically Hotel Le Bleu - to save some money but not compromise on style. At first I was a bit unsure about it as I got out of the subway, but after a short walk came upon what was like an oasis of Manhattan hip (at Brooklyn prices :). A stretched limo and fancy cars in the parking lot was my first clue that this spot was a good idea; check-in was smooth; and then the room...*awesome*. Like Virgin America (the airline I flew), they've captured the essence of hip/cool/modern. From the bed to the shower to the Bose stereo system, all was spot on. The free waters and snacks at check-in and the free in-room light bfast delivery turned out to be lifesavers, as did the free wifi. As far as downsides, I'd say the area around the hotel wasn't much to write about, though I was told we were walking distance to some gems.
Net net, this hotel is recommended for a younger, hip crowd that doesn't want a sub-par hotel stay but doesn't want to pay Manhattan prices. Getting to/from downtown Manhattan is easy enough (just like staying uptown). And you'll love the room...
