You could not do better than to stay the night at Le Bleu before returning to the UK on the QM 2 and the value at just over £ 100 for 2 is outstanding.
The area may be a bit industrial but it is only a short distance from 5 th Avenue with a large selection of places to eat or just to buy a snack. We were on the second floor so did not get much of a view but then we were only staying one night.
We are both in our 70's and even at 89 F could manage the walk to the Sub way station and enjoyed a trip to Coney Island and Prospect Park, a place I did not expect to find in New York.
The bathroom arrangements are a bit novel for people of our age, but with the shower curtain is pulled it is quite private enough. The bed could not be bettered.
Make sure that you take a CD with you so that you can try the Bose audio system, the TV is excellent its a pity about the rubbish that the poor Americans have to put up with thank God for the BBC.
The car and driver the hotel ordered for us provided us with friendship and amusement to the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal and the hotel staff could not be better.
Make sure you go to the bar at the top of the buliding for a drink and to take in the view.
For all the moaning minnies ref the problem with debit cards MAKE SURE YOU TAKE A CREDIT CARD then you will not have a problem.
Well done to all those who provide the Le Bleu experience.
