This quiet, off-the-beaten-path hotel find in Brooklyn delivers a similarly cozy experience to its Box House Hotel sibling (also in Greenpoint). Bright, high-ceilinged rooms, cozy decor and vibrant artwork give the space the feel of an ultra-luxurious Airbnb (no hotel stuffiness here!), plus amenities like a fully outfitted kitchen in the larger suites give you the opportunity to grab groceries and make your own meals if you’re staying for more than a night or two. If you’re looking for a hotel stay with outdoor space for partying with friends, know that some rooms offer generous balconies with city views and include tables, chairs and umbrellas. Looking to go out on the town? The hotel offers a complimentary local ride service within a mile or two of the hotel.
Though the Henry Norman lacks an in-house restaurant, it’s easy to indulge a snack craving with the inexpensive drinks and treats in your room. Concierge will also let Seamless deliveries up to your room (yippee!) with your approval. Last but not least, there’s a well-maintained fitness center with treadmills and other equipment for a workout on the go, just in case you’re feeling motivated.
TIME OUT TIP: Have a lazy Sunday ahead? Check out local Syrena Bakery (207 Norman Ave, 718-349-0560) just a short walk away to grab bagels, pastries and delicious Polish desserts.
