    Reasonable hotel in DUMBO area

    Fairly large room for NYC, nicely appointed. Due to Covid restrictions housekeeping was only on request and the breakfast was limited to packaged items but stay was perfectly acceptable. Hotel is an easy 20 minute walk to DUMBO area and the parking is literally right next door! If you stay here you must eat at Sottocasa pizzeria! Amazing!

    Basic hotel at a noisy intersection

    Hotel is located right across the Brooklyn Correctional facility on a busy street so there is plenty of noise (sirens, honks) that comes into the room. It’s a very basic hotel and the rooms are somewhat depressing. Self-Parking is NOT an option at the site but there’s a self-parking garage a block away on Atlantic.

    Good choice

    Good location next to Cobble Hill. European feel. Smallish room but comfortable bed. Overnight staff was very nice. Light breakfast included. Reasonable parking next door. Good choice for a place to sleep but why charge the resort fee? Because they all do.

    Great location, needs some tweaks

    Generally the hotel was good and my stay was fine. The staff were all friendly and helpful so no complaints there. I really liked the location - great restaurants nearby and the neighborhood was very walkable. My main gripes are some little things that would be easy to correct: 1. there was a coffee maker in the room but no coffee or coffee accessories provided (cups, sugar creamer, etc) It is a no brainer to have these provided in the room like virtually every other hotel does. The staff did give me some when I asked for them but I shouldn't have to ask. 2. No hotel information in the room at all. For example, you have to go to the front desk to get ice, which I discovered after wandering around looking for the ice machine. A little sheet of hotel info like this would be helpful. 3. Parking was ridiculous. There is a garage next store which supposedly has a relationship with the hotel but when I arrived there was a couple of people waiting and no space in the garage, just a grumpy attendant (when he finally showed up yelling, "no room!" I ended up having to drive a few blocks away to another parking garage to park for more money and without being able to charge it to my room. 4. I HATE hotel facility fees. I think it is a stupid way to charge for a room by making it look like it is less expensive then adding a fee. When I asked the front desk about them, they said it was for the gym, wifi, housekeeping, etc: this stuff should just be part of the room price.

    Stay was nice

    This was my first time staying at this hotel. Inwould definitely go back. My room was clean and service was courteous. I had small annoyance that the show smelled like someone previously smoked in the shower. But other than that i loved everything about it and the bed was very comfy.
