You might call it the borough of bedrooms.Abolitionist Place (a.k.a. Duffield Street) is the home to much of this economic activity:
With the number of hotel rooms in Brooklyn expected to nearly triple by 2010, experts predict the Borough of Churches could gain a new nickname.
Chains like Sheraton and Hyatt, and boutiques like the Hotel Le Jolie in Williamsburg and the W Hotel offshoot Aloft in downtown Brooklyn are expected to pump the number of hotel rooms from 1,200 to approximately 3,000.
On Duffield St., a 325-room Sheraton is opening across from a 176-room Aloft, a more affordable spin-off of W Hotel that will feature a glitzy, hip bar.
