Location is great, just check your guide book for nearby attractions - we loved trips to Prospect Park, Brooklyn Botanical Gardens - but best was basketball at the Barclays Center. Or maybe just walking across Brooklyn Bridge and taking in the views.
Staff are really friendly and massively helpful. Breakfast in the lobby was a convenient way to start the day (why do their bagels taste so much better than the bagels we get at home?). For me a major highlight was being able to borrow a hotel bike and go cycling. Everything we needed, every question we asked, answered or delivered with a big small and "can do" attitude.
Just love this hotel and Brooklyn.
