This 34-room property takes inspiration from its Brooklyn location, showcasing artworks that provide a sense of place along with exposed brick walls and wooden ceilings. Local design firm Espacios Design Studio commissioned photographs of the borough from historian Brian Merlis, whose large-scale prints span historic shots of iconic places like Brooklyn Bridge, Borough Hall, and Brighton Beach as well as contemporary streetscapes. There are plenty of modern furnishings as well, including an eye-catching chandelier by Gabriel Scott at the entrance made of asymmetrical metallic chains. For now, a limited selection of bites and drinks are available at a small bar by the lobby, but a restaurant serving American fare and a rooftop lounge are scheduled to open soon. Guest rooms are spacious by New York City standards, ranging in 160 to 420 square feet, and are outfitted with fluffy Euro-top beds, 300-thread-count linens, and welcome perks like Nespresso machines.
In the Area
Straddling Crown Heights and Bedford-Stuyvesant, two diverse and up-and-coming Brooklyn neighborhoods, the hotel is a perfect vantage point from which to experience the borough’s more authentic side. Some of the area’s most important cultural destinations, such as the Brooklyn Museum and the gorgeous Botanic Garden, are within walking distance. And the Brooklyn Academy of Music, a 150-year-old center that features an outstanding roster of concerts, plays, and movies, is 15 minutes away by subway. After a show, stop for dinner at Berlyn across the street, a chic vintage-inspired venue serving German specialties. Then head for beer at one of the many halls nearby: Berg’n, a highlight, slings microbrews (and various noshes) in a hip industrial setting. For fine dining, look no further than the Michelin-starred Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare for a memorable tasting menu (but be sure to book a spot far in advance).
How to Get There
This was a great place to stay! The hotel is really upscale, and has well appointed finishes. The rooms are clean, and the staff is very helpful. As a visitor to NYC for the first time, it was a wonderful experience, and the staff went out of their way to help us!
Thanks so much!
My husband and I stayed here while we were in town for the Legends Classic basketball tournament at the Barclays. The location to the coliseum is perfect. Great eating places are about a 20 min walk but worth it. The rooms are beautiful with a mix of wood and exposed brick. It’s quiet and clean. But the true gem is the front desk staff. They are extremely welcoming and professional.
We recently stayed at the Brooklyn Hotel for 2 nights, 3 days. I was pleasantly surprised at the hotel amenities, the comfortable price and the great room. Overall, I was pleased with the location, the personnel and the accommodations. Our room was comfortable, and very modern, complete with microwave and refrigerator. The hotel staff were very friendly, helpful and outgoing. I especially liked Brittany who checked us in, checked us out and was helpful when we needed a ride to the airport. I would recommend this hotel and I would stay there on my next trip.
I recently stayed at this hotel with my husband and it was so cute and such a great stay it was
Our first time in Brooklyn, comfortable bed, amazing size rooms I was shocked at how big the suite we were in was, very close to shopping areas and public transportation. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful with everything we needed our next trip out we will be staying here for sure.
This is definitly the best hotel in New York of the 5 hotels I’ve stayed in.
The rooms are VERY BIG and clean. The staff is helpful and friendly. The price was a little expensive but totally worth it! The beds were so good!
I used the fitness area, which was clean and nice too.
The subway/metro is a few 100 metres away, so very close. About 20/30 minutes away from NYC centre I think.
Only minus: the breakfast is afwul. Especially if you’re a European.
Also: the neighbourhood is not so “good”. A lot of homeless people and sometimes a little scary. Not to be advised for women alone. If there is a man with you, no problem.
