Stayed here with my husband and kids (under 10) for 4 nights. The price was perfect, breakfast included, coffee and cookies (and ice cold water) available all day. At night the lobby has a low key bar, perfect for a night cap. The location is convenient to a few different subway lines. We mainly used A/C/R in and out of... More

Great Brooklyn Heights location, very clean and comfortable rooms plus friendly and helpful staff! The street side is a little busy, but our room faced the back area, which was very nice. Parking is right next door and was much more affordable than Manhattan. Unique, fun decor. Would go again.
