Manhattan isn't the only place to stay in the city. In fact, you can book a room in a French country auberge in the Bronx or a suite in a restored Victorian brownstone in Brooklyn.

BROOKLYN

New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge
333 Adams Street
718-246-7000

Bed and Breakfast on the Park
113 Prospect Park West
718-499-6115
www.bbnyc.com
The house, which overlooks Prospect Park, is an exercise in high Victoriana, with tall ceilings, gilded mirrors, curved sofas, rich colors, and lace curtains. The guest rooms are all romantic-looking, and some have working fireplaces. In the heart of Park Slope, the inn is close to such attractions as the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the botanic garden, and the pride of the borough, Prospect Park. In addition, there's great shopping nearby and a choice of good restaurants for dinner. Rates start at $225 per night.

THE BRONX

Le Refuge
620 City Island Avenue
(718) 885-2478
www.lerefugeinn.com
City Island is about as close as one gets to New England without leaving the five boroughs, and this restored restored 19th-century sea captain's house is a romantic evocation of what the island might have been like before the city absorbed it. The eight guestrooms are comfortable, but the real draw here is the food: dinner is served in a gracious dining room; the chef turns out impeccable French cuisine here as he does in his Manhattan restaurant. Double rooms start at $105 per night.
