We stayed in the Aloft Brooklyn Hotel for 9 days in July 2011 and liked the hotel BUT it does have some problems.
The location in downtown Brooklyn was nice, especially since it was close to Fulton Street (with lots of shops and fast-food restaurants) and also close to the Brooklyn- and Manhattan Bridge. There are several subway stations not far from the hotel.
The hotel itself is brand new and very fresh. The lobby was nice. It had a front desk, a pool table, a small bar and a small area for food and drinks. The bar was located just outside the lifts and wasn't that special. If the bar had been located in the inner room it had been perfect.
Anyways, the rooms where smallish but good. The wardrobe was almost non-existing. It was TOO small. The bathroom was new. So new it actually still had marks on the floor from the construction workers... The TV and free wi-fi was perfect and the beds where very nice. Our view from the 10th floor wasn't amazing, but good enough.
Our issues with the hotel was:
1: the cleaning - sometimes the cleaners knocked on the door at 10, and we asked them to come back later, but they never did.... the bedsheets were not changed every day, we had to ask the cleaners to change them.
2: the non-existing wardrobe - you could basically fit 5 shirts on hangers...
there were also some shelfs, but not alot.
3: the non-existing roof-top bar/ restaurant - before we went to NY we read online that the hotel had a roof-top bar/ restaurant but on arrivel we found out that it was under construction and closed!!!
All in all - a nice design hotel in downtown brooklyn with excellent communication with some problems.
