Williamsburg's Hotel Le Jolie Now Open
We'd been checking the website for Hotel Le Jolie in Williamsburg waiting for it to open, but it turned out the low tech method was better. Passing by on the BQE yesterday, we saw a big "Now Open" banner draped across the top of the first hotel to open in Williamsburg/Greenpoint. Le Jolie is a the sister hotel of Gowanus' Le Bleu. It's in an, um, interesting spot on Meeker Avenue, right up against the BQE and next to an abandoned gas station. (On the upside, Bamonte's is right out the back door.) Room rates are in the $200-$300 range, although the hotel's website is really still a place holder page right now.
