We were first met by Johnny and Kevin who where amazing all weekend. We never lifted a bag, never was without suggestions of things to do in Brooklyn and never felt like we had to do anything besides have fun. They were all around great guys with great energy. I felt like I was meeting a good old friend for... More

The only two things that saved this hotel from a terrible review was the location and the staff. I found the staff very pleasant and helpful. Now for the bad . . . The lock didn't work on the door for the first room they gave me. Why would you put someone in a room that had a broken lock?... More

We enjoyed our stay at this hipster friendly hotel in north Williamsburg Brooklyn. The young staff was very friendly and helpful. It was generally very quiet in our modern well proportioned room. The beds were very comfortable with high thread count sheets and real down pillows. It's about five blocks from the L train which is a quick trip into... More

My husband and I booked a night in Williamsburg just to experience the area. The good: the hotel was perfectly located, easy walk to everything we wanted to do. Across from a nice park. The fitness center was large, with lots of windows and great equipment. The pool area (closed) looked great. The not so good: the room was nice,... More

Just around the corner from Bedford Ave that has lots of boutique shops, restaurants and pubs. Has a parking garage right next door. This is a boutique hotel. Rooms are pretty small, and the desk area is really not workable. The floors weren't swept very well, with dust bunnies and small trash on the floor. TV remote didn't work.

Without any expectations, we arrived for our weekend at the McCarren Hotel and Pool Friday. Johnny and Kevin greeted us warmly and checked us in. The garage parking next door was so convenient. The location is also great...close to my daughter's apartment and near Williamsburg happenings. The room was small but clean and efficient. Our king bed with 3 pillows... More

We stayed at the McCarren in mid-August from Mon. - Thurs. We loved the location in hip Williamsburg, close to restaurants and cafes and our friend's apartment. The staff were super friendly, casual and helpful. Sheltering Sky rooftop lounge gave jaw dropping views of Manhattan and it was a really great place to hang out on Mon. and Tues. night... More

After traveling for two + weeks, the McCarren Hotel and Pool was a welcome respite and our penultimate hotel stay for this epic trip. The hip and cozy hotel is boutique in all aspects: warm, personalized service; smaller in stature, yet big in amenities for the savvy traveler. The hotel's offerings are plenty - room service, an expansive, roof-top restaurant... More
