As a starwood employee I have worked and stayed in various starwood property's accross Europe and the US. I booked in for two nights with my friend and enjoyed the hotel. The fact of the matter is 9/10 when you come to NYC you don't want to spend all day in your hotel- but it's the best feeling in the world coming back to a nice, clean comfortable room and that's exactly what the Aloft provides. The subway is right around the corner and you can go all the way to main attractions such as Times SQ in around 20 minutes or so. The majority of the staff were helpful throught the two days, however, my biggest problem was contacting the hotel before I arrived- there seemed to be some confusion over 'in house reservations.' The facilities of the hotel are basic but good. There is an average fitness centre and the pool is ok- be wary of the opening times.
At the end of the day if you'd prefer to stay in the heart of the city you can end up paying through the nose for a cheap room without style or comfort. If you find a good deal then the Aloft brooklyn is perfect for people looking to explore the city!More
