Don't believe what your friends have been telling you: you don't have to sell your organs on the black market to be able to afford a room in New York City. With just a few clicks of the mouse, you can find a New York City hotel room that won't cost you an arm and a leg.

One of the best ways to save money on New York City hotel rooms is by booking a hotel in Brooklyn. Brooklyn hotels are considerably cheaper than comparable Manhattan hotels, mainly because you're not within walking distance of Manhattan attractions. If, however, you're not bothered by the inconvenience of riding the subway, or if you'd prefer to see a less touristy side of the city, you would do well to look at some of the following Brooklyn hotels. Here in New York City's most populous borough you'll find everything from enchanting boutique hotels such as Hotel Le Jolie to well-appointed luxury hotels such as the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge. Don't forget to take advantage of special NYC hotel promos!

Hotel Le Bleu: Located in the safe and recently gentrified neighborhood of Park Slope, Brooklyn, Hotel Le Bleu is a stylish boutique hotel boasting generously appointed rooms and a popular rooftop restaurant. Enjoy a full-service business center, high-speed internet access, and a complimentary "Fresh Start" basket when you stay at this chic Brooklyn hotel.

NU Hotel Brooklyn: Boasting 93 well-appointed guest rooms and a convenient downtown location, NU Hotel Brooklyn is the perfect choice for travelers who want to see the most popular attractions in New York City while keeping to a budget.
