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 Tillary Hotel is welcoming and comfortable. The location near the Brooklyn Bridge is very practical to discover both Brooklyn and Manhattan. The service is efficient and agreable. A very nice adress for a stay in NYC!
Nice hotel as a base to explore Brooklyn but found it very overpriced for the one night I stayed. Nice lobby and property. Decent location. Comfortable bed. My review would have been more positive had I felt the price of the room matches the value.
Would stay again only if the cost was dramatically reduced.
We stayed at this hotel during the September long weekend. Location is perfect. So close to both bridges and to DUMBO. Room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Room was small but it did it's job perfectly. Down side was the hanging space in the closet. We were in Brooklyn for a wedding and hanging space was very limited due to the refrigerator and safe being in the closet. Having the safe in the room was a nice bonus. There was also an iron and ironing board which was handy to have. We did not hear any street noise which was surprising.
The doormen were so welcoming and happy to help. I did find the fragrance in the lobby quite strong. I am sensitive to smells and it gave me an immediate headache. There is really no need for it to be so strong. I read other reviews and they mentioned it was a strong smell of mens cologne and incense, which was pretty close to what it smelt like. The smell is way too strong.
We spent a little bit of time in the beer garden. It was such a great little spot to unwind after a busy day. Great hotel!
