Brooklyn is the alternative borough, filled with young graphic designers and stage actors in designer glasses and vintage t-shirts, right? Wrong. According to BBC, the region is about to become one the top destinations for business travelers to New York. Truth be told, business suits and JFK airport car service is quickly becoming just commonplace in the area as bands you’ve never heard of or obscure food carts. We’ve compiled some of the top reasons that Brooklyn sedan service and lodging are the perfect choice for your next business trip to the greater NYC area:
Chances are you’ll pay around 1/2 the cost for a similar quality room in Brooklyn as you would in Manhattan. Even more impressively, you could end up closer to your business on Wall Street than if you were paying more. Crossing the Brooklyn Bridge to the financial district can take as little as seven minutes by car service, a far shorter drive than many of the city’s best-known and most expensive hotels.
It’s got everything you need
If Brooklyn were an independent city, it would be the fourth largest in the world. Over $10 billion of funding has been dedicated toward revitalizing the area in the past decade, resulting in entertainment opportunities to meet your every need. The Brooklyn Academy of Music hosts some fabulous theatrical and art ventures that can rival the shows on Broadway. You can relax in the evenings over a Michelin-starred meal at restaurant Saul or award-winning, artisan cocktails at The Clover Club. There’s designer boutique shopping at local Hollander & Lexer or Bird. The truly daring can vie for reservations at legendary Brooklyn Fare, a single-table restaurant located in a grocery store. The fact the restaurant has already become one of the most sought-after restaurants on the East Coast is just another sign that Brooklyn is no joke.
The opening of the recently-built, 18,000+ seat arena located in Brooklyn, Barclays Center Arena was a true triumph for the borough. Between the first professional sports team to play in the region for 5.5 decades, a new flux of big-name performers and reports that there will NHL hockey in the 2015-2016 season, The Barclays Center has quickly become a sought-after destination for nights out on the town. Few of us have time to play during business travel, but if you can find a spare evening, it’s well worth checking out the events calendar.
Whether you need a hotel with a free conference center for several days of meetings with clients or colleagues, or just a place to rest your head each night, there are perfect accommodations in Brooklyn to fit your needs:
Traditional comfort and affordable luxury reign at Brooklyn’s first Sheraton hotel, a comfortable star for executives. Offering 321 rooms and expansive meeting spaces, you’d have little reason to leave if it wasn’t for the exciting opportunities throughout Brooklyn. Amenities include an on-site fitness center, business center and perfectly sufficient restaurants and lounges. For executive travel to Brooklyn on a budget, it’s an excellent choice.
Hotel Le Bleu
The borough’s first boutique hotel, Le Bleu feels like a historic landmark even though it’s only been open for business since 2007. Amenities include free parking, wireless, breakfast and a 24-7 business center. It feels distinctly European and luxurious though rates are reasonable, and it’s a favorite of visiting entrepreneurs.
