Great boutique spot!

Cozy Room
We enjoyed our stay and our room was cozy and lovely. However we did struggle with heating up the suite considering there was only one unit for all the space and I had to call at about 2am to ask why there wasn’t hot water. It eventually came back on but it was definitely uncomfortable and I felt that the staff were making excuses as opposed to offering solutions. When I checked out and they asked about our stay I told them and they said it was an inverted Hot and Cool sign issue. I think I should have been notified in advance or knowing they have this issue - they should’ve attempted to have it fixed.

It’s a great hotel with spacious rooms and the staff was so helpful and nice. We will come back again and stay here. Easy access to subway, ferry and buses to get to Manhattan and any where else.

Will definitely be back!
I stayed here and loved it. The room was beautifully designed and thoughtfully equipped. As for location, I was initially worried about being far away from down town but I caught the East River ferry to work each morning (just 2 blocks away and two stop to Manhattan) which was quick, easy and gave gorgeous views of the skyline! I found the staff helpful and they pointed me in the direction of lots good food places - Happy Hour st Madre (the restaurant connected to the hotel) was well worth it. In short, wasn’t sure what to expect When I booked this place and Having stayed there I highly recommend it and now I’m going to use this as my base for my NY visits.

Our stay at the Franklin Guesthouse was good but cannot say it was great. The room we stayed in-212- was clean and had plenty of space. A microwave in the room was lacking and not available for use at the hotel. The noise level from the hallway and street woke us several times. After 2 nights, we asked for a room change if available. We never heard back from the desk person if it was possible. In addition, it rained our first night and water had gotten on the floor. We alerted staff and was not told if it was investigated. No more issues afterwards as it did not rain any more. The car service was used and the drivers were very friendly. Staff at the checkin desk were helpful and friendly. Able to walk to the subway. Enjoyed Sweetleaf Coffee a short walk from the hotel.
