We live close by and had to stay in the hotel while we were having a renovations done at home and during a work week so we just needed a place to sleep/eat. Since this is the only decent hotel in town they took advantage. The price per night was very high (Manhattan prices). Bay Ridge is NOT Manhattan so if you're not very very familiar with NY you may think this is okay. Yes, you can sometimes here and feel the subway underground but you would need to be very quite to feel or hear anything. The hotel is clean and the room, although small, suited our needs. The bed was okay, the bathroom seems recently renovated and we had a safe in the room (more about this later). BW's we've stayed at in other areas of the country don't normally have safes in the room which, if you read my other BW reviews, is a major nuisance. There's no fridge or microwave. Maybe since everything in terms of food, etc are steps from the hotel. But after a long work day it would have been nice to at least have a fridge. The staff seemed pleasant enough although I personally did not have one-on-one contact with anyone during our stay. I did request our room be vacuumed one day after we requested that the AC be serviced because it was not working properly. The repair person had left some debris behind. Our request wasn't honored that day but was the next. The AC was fixed-YAY! The continental breakfast was better then in many other hotels. Fresh NY bagels, eggs, bacon, waffles, hard boiled eggs, yogurt. That was a very nice surprise! No plastic wrapped stale danish or expired cereal here. My spouse checked out without much hassle but was asked if you used the safe (??). It seems there's a surcharge for using their safe and you're on the honor system if you use it. So, my final note here is if you in a pinch for a place to stay this is a good option. Just be prepared to pay for it.
