Aloft New York Brooklyn Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The ultra-hip Aloft Brooklyn draws adventurous travelers to one of Brooklyn's latest emerging neighborhoods with hip, edgy decor, playful amenities like a billiard table and cocktail bar, and guest rooms filled with modern conveniences -- all at a rate usually well below the Manhattan standard. But there's no on-site restaurant, and none of New York's most popular tourist sites within walking distance -- but some of the city's main subway lines are a short walk away.

New York City on a Budget (4 of 9)

New York City doesn't necessitate an expensive vacation (though it can happen pretty quickly). So to help you save some monies on your next trip to the Big Apple, we've found some of the best value stays in the city that don't scrimp on style. Check them out here:
The idea of the 366-room Pod 39 hotel is to offer very small rooms (even by New York City standards, a city notorious for small hotels rooms) for low prices (again, by New York City standards). Rooms range from 55 to 140 square feet, and prices start at $119 per night. The smallest rooms, or pods, only fit one person, but all have private bathrooms and smart design touches, like storage under the bed, train-inspired coat hooks, double flat-screen TVs for guests in bunk beds, and both outlets and a "cell phone" close to the pillows. There are three seriously cool -- and colorful -- public spaces: an upscale Mexican restaurant, a rooftop bar with unique architecture, and a hangout space called the Playroom. A hip hotel in an unhip neighborhood. The meticulously curated, vintage-inspired design will be a turn-off for some -- the Ace doesn't aspire to most conventional notions of luxury -- but the property is as cool, comfortable, and inviting in its own way as any fancy downtown hipster boutique. Rooms are a bit small, and in some cases dark. But service is solid and the rates are usually very fair. A quintessentially stylish New York hotel, with small rooms, noisy streets outside, and two popular bars attached. Rooms aren't overly fancy, but they nail important features like comfy beds, flat-screen TVs, and Bose stereos. The location -- four blocks from Central Park -- adds additional appeal to a hotel that usually offers good value for the money. The ultra-hip Aloft Brooklyn draws adventurous travelers to one of Brooklyn's latest emerging neighborhoods with hip, edgy decor, playful amenities like a billiard table and cocktail bar, and guest rooms filled with modern conveniences -- all at a rate usually well below the Manhattan standard. But there's no on-site restaurant, and none of New York's most popular tourist sites within walking distance -- but some of the city's main subway lines are a short walk away. For the price, you'll be hard-pressed to find this level of on-site amenities at any other New York hotel. The Empire's rooftop bar and pool, both with excellent views of the upscale Upper West Side, make this 422-room hotel one of the city's best values, despite the small rooms. European chain Yotel is known for its hip atmosphere and affordable rates. This Midtown West outpost is certainly hip, featuring three bars (including two on an enormous rooftop terrace), a Latin-Asian fusion restaurant, and funky, outer space design. And it's usually affordable, at least for the area. Rooms are tiny, and the location on quiet 10th avenue is a bit out of the way, but the cool factor will make this a worthwhile option for a young, well-heeled hipster set. This 210-room midtown boutique, half a block from Times Square, stands out for its adventurous design and fun bar; not for its small, dark rooms and limited on-site features. The price is usually right though, with night rates dropping below $200 on the regular. Tucked into a quiet, classy, residential side street on the Upper West Side, this 250-room boutique comes with snazzy touches like a 16th-floor common terrace, a top-notch gym, friendly doormen, and good-sized designer rooms with excellent beds. For under $200, On the Ave is a great pick for anyone looking to explore -- and experience -- New York as New Yorkers do. This property delivers on all of the Hampton Inn staples, and the convenient Midtown East location makes it a solid pick for both business and leisure travelers. Constructed from the ground up in 2013, the 148-room hotel is fresh and modern. Guests get free Wi-Fi, a free hot breakfast, a 24-hour business center, and a well-equipped fitness center (though it's in the basement). Rooms are comfortable, with large beds and flat-screen TVs; they're a decent size for New York City, and at least four feature balconies.
