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
Very clean. Excellent, attentive staff. All were very pleasant. Overall a very positive experience. I’ve stayed at other hotels in this area of Brooklyn and by far this is my favorite. Nice hotel and good value for NYC
The room was clean but 2 days our room did not get clean. After returning from long days visiting the area;, out from morning to 7pm, you would expect your room to be cleaned.
Front desk is not very friendly.
Great location. Close to subway station and easy access to Manhattan. Walking distance from DUMBO area. Lots of great restaurants and shops to see in nearby area.
Room was clean and comfortable, and all the amenities were very nice.
Do not get a room near the bar or elevators. The noise levels kept me up most of the night. The service was outstanding and the rooms were very clean. Even though my room was on the street there was low noise coming from the street. I also liked how the space uses energy savers to conserve energy while people are not in the room. The staff make it extra friendly from the moment you check in to the moment you leave. I would stay again, but just in a room away from the bar or elevator space.
On the advice of our son who lives in Brooklyn we tried the Tillary. The room is good sized and the bathroom is spacious by NYC standards. We really liked that and it was clean. The staff was very helpful but I would note the food options are limited but they have a nice bar with an outdoor patio on the 2nd floor. The other issue for us is it is located at the foot of the Manhattan Bridge so the traffic is very heavy and there is surrounding construction. We were on the 2nd floor and could hear the traffic noise constantly. Might not be a problem on a higher level but it was very noticeable to us.
