Opened by New York–based D.J. Bijal in 2012, Hotel BPM is filled with subtle nods to its owner’s love of music, right down to its name: BPM stands for “beats per minute.” Throughout the six-story space, décor is simple and modern, complemented by clever touches like turntable-themed wallpaper in the downstairs breakfast room. A custom mix of tunes plays continuously over the sound system in the small lobby, which is overseen by a helpful and friendly staff. The 76 guest rooms, though not particularly spacious, are designed with comfort in mind, each equipped with Frette linens, “smart” flatscreen TVs, Keurig coffee makers, rain showers with Gilchrist & Soames BeKind toiletries, and overhead sound systems (including speakers in the bathroom). It's located on a nondescript block in the South Brooklyn neighborhood of Sunset Park, so the immediate surroundings afford few dining and nightlife options, which may be disappointing to those looking to stay in the heart of it all. That said, it’s across the street from an express train to Manhattan and one stop from Barclays Center, making BPM a good value for those looking to save money while staying in a hip New York hotel. Plus, BPM is heavy on perks for those staying in, offering free Wi-Fi, complimentary breakfasts, and an open bar for guests (occasionally accompanied by a live DJ) in the evenings.Pros
