I’ve been taking an annual weekend trip to NYC for the last 10 odd years. I’ve covered most of Manhattan so decided to stay in Brooklyn this time. The NU Hotel is in a phenomenal location. So much good food and drink spots all around the hotel, high brow and modest fare alike. Easy walk to the Brooklyn Bridge as well as to the residential parts of Brooklyn Heights to sit in a local park and relax. It’s right along the F line so it’s one train into downtown Manhattan for a night on Broadway. The hotel is very nice itself. Clean, nice staff, free breakfast that offers more than bagel and boxed cereal - i’d still rather get pancakes and an omelette but works in a pinch. Free fruit, coffee and cookies all day. They have a nice little outside seating area out front to do some people watching. My only complaint is as a 6’2” man the bed is super low...think futon height. Other then the bed height this place was perfect.

I hate to be this person. I was brought up with the "if you don't have anything nice to say..." rule, but I just can't let other people like me spend this amount of money on this experience. Stay somewhere else!! Let's put it this way... the shower didn't have a lip. Which means, you guessed it, the whole bathroom would flood every time you took a shower. Bed was hard as a rock. Pillows were bad. Room was loud. Hallways were loud. Staff was confused. Breakfast was NOT as shown in photos. Yikes. It would be fine if it was an inexpensive place. I wouldn't have cared, buy it wasn't! It was expensive, and I still can't figure out why.
