“Night before the crossing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Stayed here as a convenient location before departing for Southampton, UK from the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal the next day. We were very pleased with the desk staff, the room, and the overall appearance of the hotel. The included breakfast was standard and got us on our way. An earlier telephone call to hotel with questions about how it appeared on Street View yielded assurance that it was within easy walking distance of Brooklyn’s 5th Avenue and a number of restaurants. This was accurate and we had a very nice meal in a restaurant reviewed elsewhere. Overall – a definite return any time we are in Brooklyn the night before sailing from the Cruise Terminal.

Room Tip: Fourth floor is half flight up from lobby and perfect for those who do not ride elevators.

Although you're in Brooklyn, it's only one stop away from Canal Street in lower Manhattan. This hotel is clean (!), affordable and has a great free breakfast! Don't miss the view of Lady Liberty from the roof top....

Room Tip: The higher the better - there's a lovely view if you're on the west side of the building.

This is a decent, clean hotel for the price. We actually got a Living Social deal and it was such a great stay. The rooms are nice, the interior of the hotel is very modern. The rooftop view is great and the breakfast was pretty good. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Park Slope. It is a short walk to great shops and restaurants.

Stayed here last saturday night because we were going to see Paul McCartney at the Barclay Center that night. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the staff is extremely attentive and helpful. The hotel is less than a 10 minute walk and the area, Park Slope, is a wonder of shops, cafes and restaurants. Parking at the hotel was an additional $25 which I was glad to pay but frankly, there was quite a few on street spots to be found and given the neighborhood I would have felt very safe with my car on the street. The best part of this hotel is the rooftop deck. We hung out there before and after the show with a bottle of wine (which we bought at a gas station up the street!) and enjoyed the view of, among other things, the Statue of Liberty and The Freedom Tower which will soon be complete from the look of things.

Room Tip: THe higher up the further you are away from street noise but to be honest we were on the 5th floor a...

Very nice and clean with a nice lobby and breakfast room. The complimentary breakfast was very good with both hot and cold choices and fresh fruit. Rooms were small, but views were good. Especially the views from the roof top sitting area. Located in a strange location on a residential street a couple blocks from restaurants.

Only had the opportunity to stay at this hotel one night. I initially did not know what to expect since the hotel was in Brooklyn. When I arrived staff was very professional and welcoming. Hotel was only a few blocks from the metro . The hotel was very nice and extremely clean. It looked like a newer hotel. Free breakfast and wifi. The hotel is located at the tip of Brooklyn so the metro ride to locations such as Battery Park,Staten Island ferry, Statue of Liberty, And Time Square was a straight shot via the subway. Only downside is parking is very limited and the rooms were small but Hey it's New York. It comes with the territory.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 days and the service was exceptional. The rooftop deck was a very nice touch and a great place to unwind after a long day of activities. The front desk personnel were helpful in securing transportation when needed and were very precise in giving directions. The morning breakfast had a good variety of selections and the attendant was constantly making sure that there were refills. All in all we loved staying in this hotel and will make a return stay on our next trip to NYC.
