Gowanus Comfort Inn Closing in on Opening Day

Gowanus Comfort Inn

The newest lodging to grace the Gowanus Hotel District is making significant progress toward opening. We headed over to Butler Street to check on the new Comfort Inn and found the fencing down, curtains in the windows and signs that it will be open soon. The new hotel is on Butler Street, between Nevins and Third Avenue in Gowanus. It belongs to McSam Hotel, which also developed the Gowanus Holiday Inn Express on Union Street.

The new 106-room Comfort Inn, which is at 279 Butler Street, on a pretty bleak industrial block in Gowanus. Its closest neighbors in terms of residential real estate are the Gowanus Houses and Wyckoff Gardens. Some of the south facing rooms will probably have great unobstructed Gowanus views.

Gowanus' other nearly complete hotel--the boutique Le Bleu on Fourth Avenue near Sixth Street looks to be a couple of short steps behind as interior work is still going on, but it's approaching an opening too.

Places in the neighborhood for assignations to find a room for mom when she visits.
