Call It Hotel Le Bleu

Hotel le Bleu

The times they are absolutely changing. Who would have thought they'd live to see the day when there was a hotel in Gowanus--one that the developer has promoted as having "breathtaking views" of the Big G--called Hotel le Bleu? On Fourth Avenue, next to Staples and Pep Boys and behind a Yellow Cab Depot.

Holy crap.

We say all this as an excuse to share this basic information (oh, and nightly room rates are said to be in the high $200s a night to the low $300s) and to run the photo above of Hotel le Bleu as it nears completion. We will avoid the temptation to say something snide about le Bleu's view of la merde in the Gowanus. The latter resulting from nasty sewage issues that will only get worse without a plan and action, not to mention the possible adverse impact of a certain development.

I heard the owners of Hotel Le bleu planning to put more hotels near downtown area with same kind of concept. I think it will definitely help this area very much because it's been long overdue to see more hotel rooms so why we have more choices as well as better competitive rates.

Prices are 369 a night and up!!! insane for the area , you have comfort inns and holiday in expresses as well as the brooklyn marriot for far less. what is the big advantage of LE BLEU????? nothing, no room service,no bar lounge, nothing, you have to walk to anything nice on 7th ave, nothing is close by.
