Owned by Globiwest Hospitality Group, the same management company as Hotel Le Jolie in Williamsburg, Hotel Le Bleu straddles the neighborhoods of Gowanus and Park Slope.

In the summertime, the rooftop of this hotel has a spectacular view of the Manhattan skyline.
Rumor has it that the Beach Boys stayed at Hotel Le Bleu when playing Brooklyn.
