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
the location was great and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The bed and bed linens were great! the parking garage was expensive so I would suggest using the garage for the Hampton Inn which is half a block away.
Overall very friendly and helpful staff. The Hotel throughout is very clean, with on-site parking that is convenient (additional fee). Excellent breakfast buffet with exceptionally nice & helpful staff.
Lights within room are very dim, not good if you're trying to get a little work done.
Simply put, our room was not cleaned when we arrived back at hotel at midnight. The notice to please clean the room was still hanging on the OUTSIDE of our door. The manager was not fazed at all. We got a very weak apology at best. Another day, we came back to hotel around 4pm after leaving at 6am. The room was NOT cleaned yet.
Again, no real effort for an apology.
The bar was not great either. Bartenders were not at all happy to be there. Bar was not stocked well and drinks were not good. The only thing the bar had going for it was the cute outside area. It had tables and seating areas with various games to play.
The best part of the hotel is the giant Scrabble board in the lobby. It was a fun way to spend a rainy afternoon.
I would not recommend this hotel. Next time I will look into the Hampton Inn across the street.
