After calling 7 times, I tried ordering room service to my fiance's room for his bachelor party on my credit card. I tried calling another 20 times and they didn't pick up. The service is awful here and it's such a shame that they're going to keep getting away with it.

Hotel's Favorite
I stayed at The William Vale for three nights in November 2019. What an amazing hotel. I was greeted with such kindness and this continued throughout my stay. I booked the king room and my room was situated on the 14th floor. The room was fantastic. Clean, modern and had a fantastic view over Brooklyn. The rooms were big for New York standards. I can’t complain about this hotel. The gym was great, the rooftop bar was fantastic, and all of the facilities were clean and modern. The restaurant located inside the hotel, Luca, was delicious. I dined here for breakfast and dinner. The food was divine and the service was fast and top-notch. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. The hotel is in the perfect location in Williamsburg. I highly recommend staying at this hotel if you are visiting Brooklyn.

Might've been COVID (they kept saying it was COVID, even though the people saying it weren't wearing masks), but one of the worst experiences with amenities in an otherwise nice hotel. Should've saved money and went for a Marriott since we couldn't use anything on the hotel grounds. Hotel staff just kept telling us to call the front desk which kept going to voicemail. Check out was awful, too.

Our reservation was made online for one night, the weekend of July 4th. While booking we noticed the rate for a 2nd night was $100 less. It was quite an enticement and we kept that in mind. Upon arrival, we were greeted and treated well by the front desk, whom we informed of our intention to possible extend our stay by one night. We were told it wouldn't be a problem and we should simply call when ready. Despite our arrival with multiple pieces of baggage, there was no one to assist us with carrying it to our room. The room we booked was the Gotham King with Balcony. It was luxurious fitted but quite small, and really without any difference from the cheaper King with Balcony room. There also wasn't a workstation or desk which made productivity a challenge. That evening, we called the front desk to extend our stay. And it was from this point that everything went downhill. The front desk was inaccessible from the telephone in our room. After multiple attempts, we got through using our cell phones. We were told there was no problem in extending by one night, we just had to call back in the morning to speak to a reservations agent. The next morning we had a zoom meeting that was impossible to access via the complimentary Wifi connection. We had to pay $15 for an upgrade. After repeated failed attempts to access the front desk via the room telephones, we used out cell phones again to call the front desk. We were then told that the rate for additional day was $940, more than twice the rate we had been charged for our first night. I told the person we spoke about the previously displayed rate on the hotel website that was $100 less than our charged daily rate. We told her how no one mentioned this rate change the two times we previously informed the hotel of our intention to extend the stay. She responded by telling us their rates fluctuate all the time and there was nothing that could be done. We were left with no choice but to scramble to look for other accommodations for the night at short notice. We were, however, given a checkout extension until noon, but informed that we won't be able to access our room with our keys after 11am without going to front desk to have them re-activated. We called in our breakfast order to be served poolside and went to the pool. Upon arrival, the pool attendant, immediately after greeting us, told us how we only had 40 minutes of pool time because of our checkout that morning. He did say he would grant us an additional 10 mins. No only did our our breakfast arrive 45 minutes after the order was placed, it was not what was ordered, and was came served in boxes! While waiting for breakfast we swam, but were consistently reminded by the pool attendant that our time was up, despite our breakfast not yet having arrived. This was incredibly irritating. By the time breakfast arrived, we literally had a few minutes to eat before having to vacate. We went to the front desk to re-activate our keys and lodge a complaint about everything that had transpired that morning. The lady we spoke to said she will speak to her manager and call us with a resolution. We returned to our room to pack and wait for her call. There was no call placed by the front desk to the room. After waiting for almost 40 minutes for a call, I turned on my cell phone which had been off while recharging to find a message asking me to call the from desk. I was appalled that the thought never occurred to them to call the room phone. We were told we would be granted a discounted rate of $799 for the 2nd night. We decided to check out anyway. Once again no one assisted us with luggage. Our car had been pulled up by valet parking, but we stood in the heat for over 30 minutes waiting for someone to show up with the keys. Overall, William Vale falls terribly short of being a luxury hotel. The appearance and the reality couldn't be further from each other. The service was mediocre at best, and the lack of consideration and attentiveness to guests' needs and concerns was appalling.

First of all this hotel is a complete disaster, do your research before booking this hotel. 1. Staff is so arrogant. Specially this guy named Peter. 2. You come here to have a nice time with your loved ones and instead you listen sorry from the hotel all the time. 3. No one answered our calls at the front desk, no matter what Time you Call. 4. Owners don’t even respect there own hotels rules and sabotage your schedule for gym, they have this rule of one party at a time in the gym and the owner came in the gym with his family at our scheduled time. 5. Reserve your pool bookings before booking the hotel because you will not be able to go to pool side without booking and they don’t answer any phone calls, mailbox is full so no one is gonna return your call. 6. We had a beautiful view but, you don’t just want a view in a Hotel. 7. Rooms are so small. 8. No bell man to carry your luggage, when you ask about it , you get to listen sorry. 9. Don’t order food at the pool side from the Hotel, it is served completely cold. 10. They don’t give any water to drink. So it’s better to do your research before coming here.
