I was in Brooklyn for the ACC tournament and needed a hotel near The Barclays Center the Red Lion Inn seemed to perfectly fit the bill. Walking from the subway to the hotel the neighborhood quickly went from typical NYC streetscape to a bit more industrial (car repair shop, etc...). There was another new branded hotel 1/2 block away, and other construction in the area, so it looks like this is a neighborhood in transition.
The Red Lion Inn is a new-ish hotel. The tiny lobby is home to the front desk and the small breakfast room (we only had coffee). Our small, but very clean room was very comfortable. The bathroom was ideal and featured some cool toiletries (charcoal soap).
All in all the Red Lion more than met my needs...BTW, my team lost in the first round, so there was no need for a second night!
