We just spent 3 nights at hip Box House Hotel in the up and coming trendy but unpretentious Brooklyn Greenpoint neighborhood. This hotel is new, very clean and friendly and the rooms (we stayed in Loft Suite # 26) are spacious and ideal for families or two couples. Even though the hotel is across the river from midtown Manhattan it's a quick subway ride on line 7 to Grand Central Station. For us, an added bonus was the terrific view of the New York skyline from the footbridge to the subway station and the option of taking the East River Ferry from nearby Greenpoint landing to the city. Also there are great options to eat out at Greenpoint restaurants. If you are looking for a nice place outside hectic and dense Manhattan Box House Hotel is a great option. We'll be back.

What can I say! It is in a great location, close enough to the subway to get to Manhattan.
Brooklyn (green point) is really cool place to stay. The hotel give you information on local eateries, we have tried four and excellent, far better than eating in manhattan. The old fashioned cabs are a great feature, they drive within a mile or so of the hotel for free! It is one of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed in. The rooms are a great size for New York hotels. It so so stylish! Friendly, helpful staff. I never write reviews (only once) and as a family we travel a lot. But this place deserves a review! Excellent. One tiny down side is the distant noise of the trains/cars, but quite faint. The actual hotel has a noise policy, so the guests are relatively quiet.

My husband and I, along with our teenage daughter, stayed for three days at the Box House Hotel. We had an amazing experience. When we first entered the lobby, there was a nice subdued woodsy, clean smell that met us. We found out that they had just put in brand new hardwood floors in some of the guest rooms. The entire place has a hip, european sort of vibe, and we just loved it. The rooms were large, the floor plan was great, and everything was new and glistening. We found out that this was an old doors and windows warehouse turned into a hotel about a year and a half ago, so the ceiling were very high, lending to the spacious, loft feel in the rooms.

We reserved a one bedroom with a "den", so we had two TV's (making my daughter very happy), a sofa bed in the den, a full functioning kitchen, complete with dishes, and a wickedly clean, sparkling bathroom. The pillows were plumb and the bed was just heavenly. Everything smelled wonderful.

On the property is an exercise room, a sauna/steam room, and a complimentary taxi service that will take you anywhere within one mile of the hotel.

Below are a few tips to consider:

1. The neighborhood is up and coming and not the very best. It's amazing that this excellent hotel is dab smack in the middle of this neighborhood, but the location wasn't unsafe or anything like that. In fact, I saw women jogging alone. Staying here will definitely give you the "New York" experience.

2. If you are looking for a grand entrance and foyer like most hotels, forget it (at least for now - more on that later). We were surprised that the entrance was very small, and you could miss it if you blinked an eye. You have to remember that this place used to be a warehouse, so you wouldn't find a grand entrance, but you do have the taxis parked in the front. There isn't a prominent sign out front with the name of the hotel. We arrived at night, and because we had researched the hotel and saw pictures, we knew where it was located.

3. The compliment taxi service is awesome. And even more amazing is the taxis themselves. We found out that these taxis were brought in from California. They are vintage and in very good shape. Just adorable and they really extend the funky vibe of the hotel. The taxi drivers were fantastic and friendly. Thanks Louis and Singh. They made us feel so welcomed, provided information about the hotel, neighborhood and local restaurants - all of which made our stay more memorable.

4. The hotel is being renovated currently to add a larger, more prominent lobby. Also, they are going to add more suites. This is great, but can be a downer if you are put in a room near the construction noise.

5. Gotta love those glistening, rich-toned hardwood floors. They were everywhere and made quite a nice impression and gave the rooms character and charm. Also, wood floors are easier to clean and is more sanitary than carpet. It helps allergy sufferers, too, because you will get less dust and grime with hardwood floors. You can clean up spills easily, and this is great if you have little ones.

6. The place has nice touches, such as therapeutic grade essential oil infused liquid body wash, shampoo and conditioner. Simply amazing and left your body and the bathroom smelling like a spa. So relaxing.

7. For a new hotel in Brooklyn, you are getting quite a deal at the Box House. Their prices are very reasonable and they even give 10% to returning clients.

When we were packing up to leave, we all voiced the opinion that this was one of the best experiences we had had in Brooklyn. We could have stayed longer, and not many hotel experiences we have had made us want to stay on like the Box House did. We will certainly be back again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the construction that is currently (2013) going on.

The Box House was a good choice. It's very modern, clean, at a good location (3 Subway stops from Times Square), with young and cheerful staff.

They have several style rooms, some larger than others, some duplex, some more susceptible to outside noise, others totally quiet, but all in all -- we were happy. There's a nice exercise room and even a Sauna...

The hotel owns couple old "Checker Cab" vehicles that are used to shuttle guests to and from the subway stations (though half the time we walked), or to the nearby grocery stores, all for free.

Room Tip: If you're sensitive to outside noise, make a point of it to ask for an "inside" room, so to be away from the Pulaski Bridge traffic noise.

Now, I've have traveled across the globe to various destinations where the hotels there are great, but this place was really amazing. The room decoration was modern and well designed. Equipped with two flat screens, a real bed and a sofa-bed, a completely full kitchen and a nice bathroom, it was almost like a house. The atmosphere of the entire hotel was light and cozy. Besides a great atmosphere, the staff was very friendly and willing to help. After we checked in, they provided us with local places to eat. They were courteous and really made our stay comfortable. The location of this hotel was very good because within a short walking distance were good restaurants, although the subway was a little farther. Another great aspect of this location was that parking along the side of the road was free. This saved us some money that we could spend elsewhere. Also, Manhattan, Brooklyn Downtown, and Flushing were easily accessible to us within a few minutes because of the proximity to the subway. Each of these places are well worth the visit. Overall, the Box House Hotel was an awesomely comfortable stay for my family and me.
