Although Brooklyn hotel talk has basically been all Le Bleu, all le time lately, it turns out that a lot of lodging action is taking place a couple miles south of Gowanus. Right now there are four hotels planned for various Sunset Park locations, according to the real estate investment services firm Marcus & Millichap. There are 80-room Comfort Inns slated for 349 38th Street and 3rd Avenue at 59th Street, both of which are supposed to be completed by the end of next year (though it doesn’t seem like construction’s started on the 3rd Avenue site). And there are two other Sunset Park hotels in the works, one on 39th Street between 5th and 6th avenues and one on 49th Street between 2nd and 3rd. Guess some developers think there’s still hope for the Brooklyn hotel market, at least in this area. Sunset Parkers agree?
