Brooklyn Hotel Development Heats Up

NY Observer excerpt -

You can now find an array of high-quality newcomers that came on line in the past five years, from sleek indie hotels to big brand chains, like the Sheraton, Hotel Indigo and Aloft, all on Duffield Street, downtown’s new hotel row. 
 
The growth has also spread beyond downtown and Williamsburg, with a Fairfield Inn and Suites in Gowanus, a kosher Clarion Inn in Borough Park and the music-infused Hotel BPM in Sunset Park.

What’s more, there are 29 more hotels with 2,600 rooms coming on line over the next few years—in addition to 4,300 existing rooms, according to a firm called Smith Travel Research—but the question remains whether they can come fast enough, given the borough’s ambitions to host the 2016 Democratic National Convention and the 30,000-plus people it will bring to the city.
