Last minute change to this accommodation proved to be a wise choice. We had adjoining rooms with our 4 children and grandparents across the hall. Would never have gotten this set up for this reasonable price in Manhattan! Hotel is 2 years old, clean, and comfortable with soft duvets on the beds. Air coniditioning throughout.
Pointe Plaze is situated in the heart of an Orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn -- about 20-40 minutes car ride just over the bridge from Manhattan. Area is older, but very safe with mothers and babies in strollers walking on streets well into the evening. The hotel is situated on a busy street corner, so did hear traffic at night, but not sure you can escape this in New York!
Free healthy breakfast served daily consisting of toast, muffins, waffles, various cereals, fruit, yogurt, juice, and coffee. Also, free shuttle into Manhattan each morning (except Sunday) was a great perk! Must find ride back to hotel from Manhattan -- taxis varied in price from $22-35.
Rooms equipped with essentials, although had to ask for more toilet paper and cups which were readily given to us upon request. The rooms have kitchenettes, but there are no dishes, cutlery, or pots and pans to cook. A hot plate/pot can be obtained from the front desk upon request.
All staff were sincere, friendly, and helpful, particularly the manager who went out of his way to offer personalized service, asking us each day how things were and if we needed anything.
We felt very fortunate to have found this hotel and would highly recommend it to anyone, but particularly families who wish to see NYC on a budget and are willing to stay outside of Manhattan. (We discovered some great restaurants in Brooklyn!!) The hotel is very clean and safe and the staff are conscientious.
