We stayed at this hotel with a group for a wedding in Brooklyn. We had two days to aside from the wedding which we planned to go into Manhattan and do "touristy stuff". The F train was the closest subway stop to the hotel, and it was about a 10 minute walk away. It seemed like a pretty safe neighborhood to walk around, though there was nothing around. We also had to take a cab to Manhattan once because we were late for something- and this cost about $20. The hotel's rooftop bar, the 808 Club or something, was pretty nice. It had a great view of the City across the East River- and was pretty spectacular at night. The breakfast buffet was also pretty good. Overall, I would recommend staying here. I lived in Brooklyn previously, and my wife is from New Jersey, so we are not exactly tourists in NYC- so we were comfortable walking the streets at night and taking a couple trains to get where we needed. If you are a tourist and looking to be in NYC- just keep in mind this hotel is across the river and there is nothing around it.
