My wife and I, along with our son and his wife stayed at Hotel Le Bleu on a weekend visit to Brooklyn to celebrate our daughter's fifth anniversary. She had heard about this hotel and recommended that we stay there. It was a very wise and welcome recommendation.
The hotel is located in a drab but upcoming location. Across from the hotel is a an attractive and very active city park, in the center of which there is a stone farmhouse, a restoration of the original 1699 structure that was the site of an important revolutionary war battle. The full week of the annual commemorative activities was being held the week after we were there. Posters advertising the events were attached to trees around the edges of the large park.
The hotel is set back from 4th Ave, with spaces for about ten guests to park their cars overnight; a great convenience for us, since we had driven from Rhode Island.
We were impressed by the two tables and surrounding chairs set out in front of the hotel; a nice touch, and their clean, contemporary design served as an introduction to the outstanding design features inside the hotel.
There is a small reception area, with very courteous and attentive staff.
Blue lighting and blue accent fabrics are used in the rooms and corridors.
We had a king bed that took up much of the space in the room, but there was sufficient space to move around. There was a white built-in desk and closet, along with a molded plastic white armchair and a huge wall-mounted flat screen tv. There was also a balcony. And the room's entry corridor included an attractive stainless steel and glass table with a vase of flowers.
The bathroom was designed in three separate sections; a white ceramic round sink with shelves for the white towels was nearest the bed, separated by an opaque glass sliding door from the toilet area. Next to the sink area was a large glassed-in area for the shower, which included a large ceiling-mounted shower-head and a separate 'telephone shower' arrangement. The lighting fixtures were stainless steel, compact, well designed and highly functional.
The room and its furnishings made an outstanding visual impression that was matched by the comfort.
A breakfast basket was delivered the next morning, at the time requested, with very friendly service. It was included in the room price.
We asked at the reception desk if we could could leave our car at the hotel after we checked out, so that we could participate in a family gathering before leaving Brooklyn. When we returned two hours later, the desk staff were eager to return to us a mobile phone that one of us had left in the room. We were very grateful.
We would certainly stay again at Hotel Le Bleu when we return to visit family in Brooklyn.
