Remember the Portlandia sketch about Hotel Deuce, the intransigently hip lodge where you get a turntable and typewriter with every room and the lobby has a full-service DJ? Sure, we like to laugh at those funny similarities we see with Portland, but turn your gaze to this newly built boutique spot in Sunset Park called Hotel BPM, which is, of course, named for “beats per minute,” and which The Brooklyn Eagle says is described as a “music-inspired property.” That means the hotel has fully licensed music streaming through its public areas and 76 guest rooms, compiled by hip-hop DJ BIJAL, who conceptualized and founded the hotel. The Eagle, which got a sneak peek at the new hotel before it officially opens May 14, says guests can also make song or artist requests at the time of their reservations. King and double-rooms start at $139 per room per night for the grand-opening rate. And of course, they’re going to be a sponsor of Austin’s SXSW festival. It is unclear if typewriters and hand-crafted library selections are included in the price as well.
