For decades, Downtown Brooklyn lacked a stylish place to stay. Enter the Dazzler, the area’s first boutique digs just steps from the Brooklyn Bridge. Despite its location on a busy intersection, the 174-room property manages to feel intimate, with a cozy light-filled breakfast room, small gym and in-room spa treatments. Also in the works: the hotel’s shining star, a spacious beer garden serving local brews. The guestrooms are done up in dark woods and a soft palette of blues and grays. Add to that Carrara marble bathrooms and Apothek bath products and you’ve got a stay worthy of its place among the hip Brooklyn ’hoods of DUMBO, Fort Greene and Brooklyn Heights.
In the Area
Brooklyn’s renaissance is happening here in a big way, with new restaurants and shops popping up on every corner. Head to Livingston Manor for craft beer and charcuterie or to Hill Country BBQ for a plate of lean brisket and pomegranate margaritas. A short walk west leads to Dumbo, filled with edgy one-off boutiques and home decor shops, and the ever-expanding Brooklyn Bridge Park, where the Smorgasburg food festival takes over every Sunday.
How to Get There
I have been staying at the Tillary since its DAZZLER days and wow, what a transformation. The front desk staff, bell men, GM, Banquet Manager and Sales Director are all true professionals - a pleasure to interact with - always so attentive and helpful...
Stayed here 2 years ago when it was the DAzzler and it was fine. Now that it’s got a new name, I can only assume it’s new management because it’s gone so far downhill.
The front desk staff are outrageously rude and indifferent to any request or question you ask them. Doormen stand there but don’t open doors for you.
Very loud guests and parties. We couldn’t sleep in our room due to the thudding music bass from a Party - called down and he said “yeah there’s a party” and hung up - not even an apology.
Rooms are small and you can hear every noise from the hallway and your neighbors.
Would never come back.
I had the opportunity to visit this hotel during my stay in NY on Sept 4-5, and let’s just say that this is a hotel is not a hotel you stay at for more than one evening....at least not the room that I was assigned (room 202). Heard rumbling of the subway, car horns, and police sirens all night.....had to leave the television on to drown out the noise. The staff was nice upon check-in, but my room was overpriced for the stay. Sorry Tillary, but this is not the hotel for me. Hampton Inn (across the street) is where I want to be.
