“Family visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

For a visit to my son in Williamsburg I choose the newly renovated Henry Norman Hotel. I was worried that the hotel would not be up and running for my visit but although they were still putting on the finishing touches the staff were friendly and very helpful. The hotel still smelling of fresh paint is very nicely decorated with colorful artwork, comfortable furnishings and upscale loft style rooms. The subway doesn't run all the way to Greenpoint but the hotel provides a scuttle service to areas close by. I found the price quite reasonable, and hope that continues when they have all their services up and running. I would gladly return.

Beautiful rooms full of comfort. Service was great and the bed was very comfortable. The flat screen tv with cable was very nice and in a good spot across from the bed so you can lie down, relax, and watch television. The shower has free shampoo, body wash, and conditioner which was very convenient. The people at the front desk were extremely kind and caring. It was like being in your own home. Great experience overall.

We were about to resign ourselves (sigh) to having to stay at the Fairfield Inn in Long Island City, when at the last minute our son (who recently moved to Brooklyn) discovered the Henry Norman Hotel in Williamsburg. Brand new, charming, delightfully decorated and the staff is over-the-top. They make you feel very welcome from the moment you walk in the door. Once they work out some of the kinks of being brand new, it'll be perfect. Highly recommend for a comfortable, very unique experience in Brooklyn.

Room Tip: The room facing the busier street was noisy in the morning. When we switched to an inside room is wa...

this is the sister hotel of the box house, we stayed here as the box house was full (i blame my review) but this is just as good, great location and service, well designed, just a few small grumbles which I'm sure are no more than testing problems - wifi needs resolving as its very poor, the showers are very weak and the noise at the front in the night is too loud, the first 2 will be resolved by the next time i stay and i won't ever have affront facing room again until the bus station is moved ...other than that its faultless

IF you wish to live and thrive in Brooklyn, this is the place for you!
This wonderful, cozy hotel is perfect if you want something in between a home and an hotel. The staff is super helpful and kind and the rooms are bright, new and confortable with the most amazing body wash you'll ever find.

Make sure you get a room on the upper floors, as the ones on the ground floor are a bit dark and be prepared to a different experience as cleaners are not doing the rooms on a daily basis.

Room Tip: Pick the rooms on the upper floors

We came to visit our daughter in NYC and were very lucky to find this boutique hotel. The free car service was a bonus . Fresh fruit in lobby and great staff. We will be back! Great walking to bakeries, the grumpy coffee shop and the park

I highly recommend staying at this hotel, the rooms are lovely and spacious and the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. I made use of the local complimentary car service, which was great and I also don't think that hotels of similar caliber offered the same service. I will definitely be back!
