This is a nice, hip, boutique property. Room was comfortably appointed, and large for an NYC hotel. The rooftop patio offers a striking view of the Manhattan skyline. It's located at the end of Bedford Ave, just blocks away from the Subway and the main drag in Williamsburg. During my stay, there was a problem with the boiler; starting the... More

I am not much of a review writer but how could I not? The hotel and amenities are great but the front desk crew is even greater. They really know how to make you feel comfortable. Michael and Alberto, thanks for all your help and food suggestions !!

Upon arrival after a long international flight, the was no one to help me with my bags so I lugged them up the stairs one by one. Upon checking in, I was surprised how small the room is. The closet is tiny, almost unusable, and there is no place to store luggage but on the floor. Finally, and most importantly,... More

I recently stayed at McCarren Hotel with my family. Our large crowd had a variety of rooms and were coming and going to attend a family member's wedding. The staff was amazingly helpful; assisted with organizing cabs, provided restaurant recommendations, and always greeted us with a smile. The rooms staff should be commended for their diligence in keeping the rooms... More

So my friend and I decided to relax by the pool and get some well needed sun. The drinks were very tasty and afterward I had some questions about... More
