I booked Aloft Brooklyn as I had stayed in Sheraton next door before and found location good for travel into Manhattan (subway stop at end of street, Hoyt Street). Hotel was reasonably priced, bit less expensive than Manhattan but only 15 minutes away on subway. First impressions were good, bright lobby, with bar, seating area, pool table and snack bar, with reception in the middle. Staff were nice at check in and was in my room within 10 minutes of arriving at hotel. Room itself was big by New York standards, with oversized shower, and some fancy Samsung widescreen TV (though it wasnt turned on all week). Didnt eat in hotel but had complimentary coffee in lobby. Room service is provided by Sheraton next door, not sure how that works?
I used the fitness suite on a couple of occasions, theres 2 treadmills, 2 bikes and 2 cross trainers with free weights, looking onto an outdoor area with recliners, would be nice on a sunny day.
I would recommend this hotel for anyone who has been to NYC before. Its not in the centre of things but you are in Manhattan in 15 minutes on subway plus getting to it from JFK was simple, Airtrain to Jamaica then LIRR to Atlantic, then 15 minute walk to hotel. I thought hotel was spotless, staff were pleasant and efficient. Plus the lifts are like stepping into nightclub (music, florescent lighting, padded walls). Rooms were big. Would stay here again if in NYC and would look at Aloft accomodation in other cities.
