    « Good location »

    We went to Brooklyn for a family event. Overall the experience was good. I wish parking was included. Staff was friendly. The breakfast bar needs a lot of improvement. We had to instantly ask for supplies like coffee cups to pancake syrup to tea to hot water.

    « Convenient on so many levels! »

    We had a king room while visiting family in Bay Ridge. Convenient location with easy access to the city. Our room was immaculate with a brand new bathroom featuring a walk in shower. Bar in the lobby and breakfast in the morning (breakfast included with room price)

    Have been coming here for many years, always have a pleasant experience. Great location for us and other friends and family who want to spend time with our son. Very reasonable price, very safe. Excellent staff.

    « Ok place »

    We got in at 8:30 pm and while we were checking in I asked about the valet parking. They said they were full. So I had to walk two blocks away to park my car. That was one of the reasons I picked this hotel. My husband went to use the bathroom in our room and the inside handle was broken so he couldn't get out. That was nerve racking since I travel alone a lot. Otherwise ok hotel

    « Great choice in Brooklyn »

    This best Western has a small friendly lounge. They also have a good full breakfast. Clean, easy friendly place. If you are looking for somewhere not to expensive in the city, try this. Seems to be a safe area.

    « Nice place in nice neighborhood »

    The hotel is in an older building with the interior completely remodeled nicely. It is clean with a helpful staff. The local streets have traffic but nothing like the traffic in Manhattan. The hotel is near the Verrazano bridge. There is a nearby subway station for the R train which runs to Manhattan. The train is not an express when running under 4th Avenue.

    « great hotel in the bay ridge »

    great hotel in one of the best neighborhoods in Brooklyn.. clean ready staff always looking to help. the lounge bar was a great time to get a drink and relax in the evening before heading up to the room. breakfast hours need to POSTED in the dining area as they change during the week days. also they should have 24/7 coffee available in the lobby as most BW do. The dining room staff comes out 15 minutes before they shut breakfast and start watching their watches and as soon as the breakfast hour is to shut down they are wisking off all the coffee pots and fruit cereal and in less than 2 minutes there is nothing left.

    Had an excellent time. Member of group grew up in Brooklyn so he shared his knowledge of the area. Lots to see and do. Just wish the weather could have been a little better! Overall we had a wonderful experience. Subway ride was an adventure for us, coming from a rural area.

    « The Gregory »

    Recently remodeled, pleasant staff, very clean, nice breakfast bar. The first night was very quiet but the second night the person in the room above us walked like they weighed 500+ lbs walking across the floor and then below us in the lounge area the next morning, was a church group with a band playing that you could hear very clearly. But all in all, a very good stay and I would stay there again.

    « Excellent service and staff »

    One of the cleanest hotels I've been to and the staff is very friendly and accomodating. The breakfast has fresh bagels from a local bakery every morning along with many other choices. Mr. Murphy should be proud.

    « The only thing "Best" »

    about it is the name. Beyond the small, rundown rooms, the air conditioning is so noisy we had to shut it down in order to sleep. The subway rattles by underneath and can be felt, even on the third floor. The ice maker, across the hall from our room, sounds like a jack hammer. The sheets are scratchy and they are chintzy with the towels. The staff is nice enough, but they've got major challenges here. The smokers, puffing away in front of the entrance, are unwelcoming. $1.50 for the safe usage fee, when we didn't even use it, is a highly questionable practice.

    « Old & Rundown/Small rooms »

    Upon arrival the desk staff were not very friendly, I felt we were an inconvenience to them. They were resurfacing the street and we couldn't park anywhere on the street so we were forced to pay $25.00 for valet parking. The rooms were the size of a closet and the bathroom was very small. The air conditioner worked great and was quiet and the bed one bed in the room was comfortable but the other was hard as a rock. The breakfast was terrible and coffee tasted like dirty black tar. I do not recommend this hotel to anyone

    « Check your bill for added charges »

    They charge $1.50/pay for their in room safe, regardless if you use it. They will remove it if you complain, but i am guessing most guests don't and they are making more money. Our room had an in window a/c but once you close the curtain you lose the cool air. I guess the air exchange unit broke and they replaced it with a cheap in window a/c held in place with cardboard and duct tape. Very unprofessional.

    « Another wonderful visit »

    The hotel is comfortable, clean and convenient while the staff members are pleasant, and very helpful. Begin the day with a healthy complimentary breakfast that includes cereal, eggs and fresh Brooklyn bagels. The rooms are spacious and comfortable while the hotel location is within easy walking distance to the subway as well as to an almost limitless number of excellent restaurants. I have stayed here at least half a dozen times and I look forward to my next visit.

    « GREAT! »

    We stayed here for three nights and it was wonderful. The renovations were tastefully done and the place is very clean. My only complaint is the breakfast. They stated it was open until 10am, however when we got there at 9an there was no more bagels or eggs. I was told by the girl at the front desk that there would be no more.

    « Nice hotel in safe area »

    Great hotel and staff in a convenient location. The room was very clean in a renovated hotel. Comfortable beds and a very nice bathroom. We loved the free internet and breakfast. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel in very close to the subway. Decent restaurants and stores nearby.

    « Brooklyn Trip »

    Great location...Great staff...Clean hotel. I normally stay at Hilton and Marriott. However when I travel to Brooklyn I always stay at the Best Western Hotel Gregory. The GM Richard is always there to greet you asking if your needs have been met. The location of the hotel is situated on 4th ave which provides you with access to many great restaurants.

    « Very Nice Hotel »

    I stayed in King Suite 325 which is huge with separate living room. Upon arrival I was going to ask if I was invisible as the lobby was empty and there I was standing like a shmuck and being ignored. At last, I ceased to be invisible. In spite of that, I acknowledge that Miss Jennifer was outstanding. Stayed one night during the heat wave New York had. Due to the west sun on Fourth Avenue the air conditioners were not cooling off. Had to draw the curtains, something I never do, to keep the sun out. Around 19:30 hours -- at last the sunset -- the air conditioners started to cool the room. Slept like a dog (all night). Miss Jennifer was very nice and helpful in getting me real milk for my coffee and telling me to wait for the air conditioners to get cool. That is what I did. She was right. King bed very comfortable with the one-half pillows that Best Western provides. I love them. Bathroom very clean, living room very clean as is the bedroom. Hotels do not have bedspreads anymore except for Hampton Inn by Hilton and Home2 Suites by Hilton. That does not bother me as I always thought the bedspreads were not cleaned after the customers leave. (I do not call them "guests" as we pay dearly.) Suite included a refrigerator, television and a carcinogen (microwave oven). Many places to eat. Walk two blocks to 86th Street on Fourth Avenue. The subway (R) is also on 86th Street. The hotel is on Fourth Avenue and 84th Street. Piece of cake. Nice breakfast area with plenty to choose from including those wonderful Brooklyn bagels. There is no air conditioning in the halls. Will go back to this hotel during the winter and pay for a King Studio -15. Beautiful old building from 1926. The inside was messed up ("renovated") in 2015. This beautiful hotel was built in 1926. (Formerly known as Hotel Madrid.) Use the stairs to see the beautiful 1926 stairs and handrails. Gorgeous.

    « Smell of mildew »

    The room had a strong smell of mildew. Also, I was told the valet parking was not available and was told I could park in the municipal garage a few blocks away. When I got over to the lot, I was told by the attendant it was closed for the night.

    « Nice rooms, great staff »

    Stayed for one night. Location was perfect for what I wanted to do and within walking distance of some nice restaurants. The room was very large, clean and well-appointed; bed was huge with a very comfortable mattress (though I would have preferred a firmer pillow); staff at the desk were friendly and helpful.

    « Lovely stay »

    Location is lovely, close to the sub way station and Brooklyn ridge. We had a good room for three of us with two double beds. The complimentary breakfast was sumptuous and there was hot freshly cooked food included.

    « Take the "BEST" Out of Best Western »

    The closest hotel to the venue where my daughter's wedding was held was the "Gregory" Best Western Hotel. It was just a few blocks away. Due to the convenience and proximity, my daughter reserved a suite of rooms for us and out of town guests. When we saw it last year it was being "renovated." I use the term loosely because after our stay there I can only imagine what it looked like before remodeling. The pictures online are deceiving. Over the years we have stayed at many different hotels and I have to say this was by far the worst. I would rather pitch a tent on an New York City street than to ever book a room at this hotel (and anyone who knows me knows that I hate camping). Here's the story. When my daughter sent out her "Save the Dates" about four moths ago, I called and booked two rooms immediately for her and for us, making sure they were in close proximity since my two daughters and I needed to have out hair and makeup done first thing in the morning. No problem they said. The week of the wedding I called to reconfirm the rooms and make sure they noted we wanted our rooms together. No problem, it was noted. They told us they had valet parking available for a nominal fee. That was great because it's a very congested area. On July 8th we arrive after 3 PM check in time and our rooms are not ready. They are scrambling around trying to figure out how to get us the two rooms we requested that were next to one another. Already I am pissed off. I need to unload all our clothes for the weekend and organize everything before we went to the "Welcome Dinner" that the parents of the groom graciously hosted for out of town guests. We finally get our rooms, but there is a nice big sign on the front desk saying their parking lot is full, sorry for the inconvenience. Seriously? So my husband brings the car to a municipal lot while we try to figure out what to do. Long story short, he ended up taking it out and finding a spot on the street. We go up to our rooms and I should have taken pictures because I could have spared you 1,000 words. I have never been to a hotel room that does not have bedspreads on the beds. No bedspreads and really no blankets either for that matter. Instead that had two thick "sheets" and a piece of material about 2 feet wide and 6 feet long laying across the bottom of the bed. What the hell that is good for I don't know. One of the beds was about 12 inches away from he closet, blocking me from putting all our garment bags in there. The bathroom had little space to maneuver around or to place your toiletries. The dresser was dusty. There were three lousy pillows on each bed instead of four. The pillows left a lot to be desired, just like everything else. So now we are off to a great start. The next morning we are busy getting ready for the wedding as best we can. We had no choice but to make due. The maid caught us going back and forth out of the room around 10 AM and she wanted to clean the room. I told her it can't be now because the bride is getting ready. By 1 PM we all leave to take the limousine to the photoshoot destination. On our way out my husband spots the maid and tells her the room will be free now if she wants to clean it. I couldn't understand every word she said, but it was clear to all of us that she didn't want to or intend to clean our room. She was very annoyed. (Can you believe it? I still can't, but this blog is going to their corporate headquarters as soon as I post it.) So, I politely tell her it's fine, she doesn't have to clean the room, but would she please leave us three clean towels. She calmed down and agreed to do that. And she did. Sunday morning we prepare to check out and believe me I could not wait to get out of there. My brother in law left the wedding early so we left a couple of favors for him at the desk with his name and room number on them. He was out sight-seeing that morning and told us he was staying an extra night. When my husband hands over the favors the desk person tells him his brother checked out. My husband told them no, he was out this morning but was coming back for another night. Then he called my brother in law to tell him he should call and straighten this out. My brother in law came back to find he had been checked out. You can imagine he was disgusted so he told them he was leaving and made sure they weren't going to charge him for two nights. They said no. Well guess what? They charged him for two nights and, when he called, they told him it would take 24 hours to get the extra charge removed. Nice. I am going to make sure everyone I know hears about my experience. I would never stay at this hotel again or any other Best Western for that matter. I do not have one good thing to say about it except it was close to my daughter's venue. P.S. If the manager addresses everyone's issues by stating they aren't true I can assure you they are. I have read the other reviews here and I believe every word posted.

    « Visit to Visitation Monestery »

    Upon our late arrival, Jennifer at the desk reception remarked we could maybe use the valet if we hurried otherwise find a place on the street "if there were any". It was 1am and had just driven 12 hours by myself with 2 kids and a service animal. Room had hair in the sink, long and black, we are blondes.There was also hair in the bed. ?? I was immediately disgusted. The refrigerator was hot and therefore our dog's food spoiled and the rest of the room looked as if it really hasn't been thoroughly cleaned in forever. DEFINITELY NOT like the photos and the staff are horribly rude. Even the am check out the guy was looking at my personal info and took 20 minutes to check me out despite being prepaid. I didn't take photos because the place doesn't deserve any. Thumbs down -- especially because they charge "AS IF"

    We stayed for three nights in this hotel. It was very clean and quiet. They are several shops and restaurants within walking distance. The subway station is also close by, about one block away. The continental breakfast was also very tasty. I would definitely stay here again. The Bay Ridge area is very nice neighborhood.

    « Not Bad For The Price! »

    The Hotel Gregory was a nice experience for my daughter and I. We fell in love with Bayridge! Three complaints !-Bed was very hard, made it hard to get a restful sleep.2-It did have a stail hotel odor (picked up a can of Lysol) 3- we where placed in a street side room ,so there was a noise factor... we'll consider that if we stay another time...over all it was good not great !

    « Excellent Choice for Brooklyn/Bay Ridge »

    For family reasons we visit Brooklyn twice a year - spring and fall and always stay here if rooms are available. The rooms have all been updated, are always clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. It is difficult to work for a chain hotel in NY and maintain as some local flavor, but I think they are doing just that. Price is reasonable for a good location in NY. The staff is small in size, so if you think you are going to get an instantaneous response every time you go to the desk, that can't happen. By the same token, if you are willing to wait your turn in line, they are polite and helpful.

    « This hotel need double pane window »

    It is an average hotel, the location is conveniently close to subway. The hotel is sitting on the 4th Ave which is a busy street. It is so noisy. Their old style of window does shield away any noise I tried several time to ask for a quiet room. The staff is not helpful, instead they try to up sell me for additional $60 a night to move to none street facing room

    The staff was pleasant and accommodating,The new renovation in lobby makes the facility seem quite modern though the building is older, The rooms are a little small (not unexpected in Brooklyn) but they are clean and comfortable. Location is excellent in a safe & relatively quiet neighborhood for a busy city. Valet parking is extremely valuable as street parking is difficult. A good value for NYC.

    « Work visit to Brooklyn »

    While looking for a hotel in Brooklyn I found few choices with parking even limited, and some had reviews that left me Leary of staying there. I found the Gregory on 3rd ave. They have parking , limited but parking good reviews witch they lived up to. I can say that I'm happy I chose to stay there. Rooms not large but not small by NYC standards. Walking distance to many places to eat and the morning breakfast was very good. I was happy to find very good and fresh Brooklyn bagels as a bread choice. When I go back to Brooklyn I will stay there and make sure I get there by 4 PM to get one of the parking spots.

    « Great place to stay in Brooklyn »

    We have stayed at this hotel several times and have to give the hotel and the staff kudos for a great place. The lobby and bathrooms have been updated and modernized recently, which was a definite improvement. The reception desk staff on the phone or in person are very helpful and knowledgeable. We had a request to have our cars brought to us very early in the morning and the staff made sure it happened even though it was inconvenient. The rooms are well maintained and the only reason I gave them a four and not five star was because I have no idea what the breakfast is like since we always leave too early.

    « Busy NYC hotel »

    Upon arrival -- (we were a little early) -- there was only one poor man working the desk, answering the phones, dealing with the valet, etc. etc. The wait was quite long. Parking is (good luck) finding your own or their parking/valet for $25. We opted for that as we are not familiar with the City. Room was clean - hot breakfast was good. Of course it is walking distance to a lot in the City. Overall, the stay was pleasant. Staff was very friendly.

    « Very Clean and Staff was Wonderful! »

    I had read some negative reviews about this hotel and wanted to offer my opinion. First of all, this is NYC, there is nothing quiet about NYC. Upon check in the desk clerk advised that he had put me on a quieter floor away from the elevator, which I appreciated. Yes, there is a subway that runs underneath, but it's just a low kind of rumble. It might be more noticeable on a lower floor. The room I had was small but very clean. The hotel has been recently renovated. The staff members were all friendly and helpful. Valet is the best option for parking as it is a residential area, and you pay for 24 hours, so even after I had checked out, I could leave my car and picked it up after my business day ended. Again, the staff were just so lovely. The breakfast buffet was ok in a pinch.

    « A Great Location -- Really! »

    If you want to get a taste of the real Brooklyn ? not the Heights, not Park Slope, not even Willamsburg ? since all of those have been co-opted ? then you are ready for a stay at the Best Western in Bay Ridge Brooklyn. Housed in the former Gregory Hotel, an historic landmark from the 1920's, this hotel is in the ideal location. It is convenient to some amazing restaurants, great shopping, and the Brooklyn-uniqueness that makes Bay Ridge so very special. So take a walking tour of the neighborhood. See amazing views of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and the War Memorial. Street parking worked fine and the hotel amenities as well as the staff were more than adequate. The extensive free continental breakfast is really great to include fresh Brooklyn bagels ? the very best! So if you are seeking a fun visit to the hometown of Tony Manero (Saturday Night Fever) the place to stay is the BW Gregory Hotel.

    « NO PARKING »

    The Hotel was great and the only thing is the parking at the best western in Brooklyn. They really should not charge you a $25.00 plus tax for parking. The hotel is in area that parking is impossible so how it that the you customers fault if they cannot find parking, I would def. think twice before I would stay at the hotel again because of the parking situation.

    « Surprisingly nice stay »

    Hotel undergoing renovations. Rooms are decent size bathrooms updated and nice. Offering microwave, coffee machine, fridge, safe, flat screen TV in room. Excellent choices for free breakfast, they even had eggs and sausage patties. Small bar but it's nice for a quick drink. Quick check-in, friendly staff, very clean and safe. Only downside is parking. They offer valet parking ( for a fee) but only 16 available spots they have rented out at nearby garage. If the spots are taken you are on your own and finding parking in bay ridge can be a nightmare. There is a municpal lot three blocks away that is open from 8am to 10 pm. Good tip: Ask for a high floor as subway line runs underneath building.

    « Right Location, Nothing Special... »

    Visited some friends in Brooklyn and decided to stay overnight. Found this hotel close by and at an okay price so booked it. Looks nice from the outside, fits into the surrounding area nicely. Staff at the counter were very friendly both on checking in and out. They offered assistance with any info I might need getting to the train when I left. The room itself was on the small side. Just enough room for the two double beds and a dresser and small desk. Room appeared clean, beds were okay, I was so tired it didn't really matter. Could hear the folks walking around on the floor above without any problem, if I wasn't as tired as I was, it probably would have driven me crazy. Shower was decent, bathroom was modern and had plenty of room. We checked out about 9:30 AM and the breakfast was all but cleaned up so I can't comment on that. I didn't utilize the WiFi either, but they gave me the password at check-in. If it wasn't for the location, I'm not sure I would use it again. It's also right over the subway so you can hear the rumbling every time a train goes by. Overall, I'd give it a 5 out of 10 rating, I wouldn't recommend staying if the rate is much over $100 per night.

    « Excellent Accomodations »

    Recently traveled to Brooklyn for a family funeral. I can't say enough about the staff of the Gregory Hotel. They were very friendly and helpful during our stay. One of the guests in our party is physically disabled and they went out of their way to make sure her room was easily accessible. The staff also assisted us with directions and transportation during our brief stay. The Gregory provided first rate accommodations with very clean and comfortable rooms. The newly renovated lobby is beautiful and offers a comfortable seating area and full bar. The morning breakfast included with our stay offered a wide variety of selections, including the delicious New York City bagels. I hope my next trip to Brooklyn is for a happier occasion, but regardless I know I have a great place to stay at the Gregory on 4th avenue!

    The room was very clean and comfortable and we had a view of 4th Ave. The Continental breakfast was outstanding-- way more than bagels and yogurt and fruit-- they had eggs and waffles and more....they are going through renovations but it was nothing that affected the guests. The ONE thing we were not happy about at ALL was the parking situation-- they say parking/ valet is 25.00 a day but when we got there they said they only had 16 spots for the entire hotel and they were full.... We had to drive a bout 4 blocks down and park the car in a garage ourselves which was a bit more expensive than having he valet parking..... This hotel does not advertise hat they have LIMITED parking so we were a bit dismayed and inconvenienced.

    « Excellent place to stay »

    The desk staff was wonderful. They were able to recommend local places to eat or have food delivered from. We passed housekeeping staff in the elevator or hall; very nice people. Overall, the staff were great. In particular, Richard was very helpful in resolving an issue with our credit card. He spent what was probably an hour working with the credit card company to get things fixed. We have to find a home for two cats and Richard was able to recommend a place to take them. Our reason for being in Brooklyn was to deal with a very unpleasant task. It was wonderful to come back to the hotel, where somebody else parked the car, someone else had made the beds, and the desk staff greeted us pleasantly. We frequently have trouble finding useful electrical outlets in hotel rooms. We usually have to unplug the clock to plug in a heating pad or CPAP. No such problem here. There were two outlets on the lamp on the night stand, two on the desk lamp, two on the microwave, and two on each of two walls. We were able to plug in everything we needed--CPAP, heating pad, both phone chargers, and tablet charger. This was fantastic. The complimentary breakfast was okay, better than some. The important thing, to me, was the presence of coffee. There was some construction going on while we were there, as evidenced by a couple of signs and a couple of corrugated plastic walls obscuring most of the actual work area. We wouldn't have known otherwise, since we weren't disturbed by any noise. We were told that the renovations should be complete by the following week. I'd like to see the results, something I usually don't care about once I've left a hotel. The hotel is within walking distance from a Stewart's restaurant (85th St and 5th Ave), which is a great place to eat. Not, obviously, anything to do with the hotel service, but it is a nice feature. If I have to stay in Brooklyn again for this particular reason, it will be at the Gregory Hotel.

    The renovations continue, due to NYC City Codes. Still a nice hotel, as are most Best Westerns. Nothing fancy but livable. Can't beat the neighborhood; in walking distance of shopping, restaurants of all levels, fresh farm markets, the subway.

    « November 2015 stay »

    I travel to NY on a yearly basis and stay at this hotel. This year our stay was wonderful, the hotel staff are very accommodating and friendly. They are in the process of renovating the lobby area, which did not affect our stay. The room we had was great, the bed was comfortable and the room was very clean, and I will be requesting that room again for next year. The only little problem was the elevator, but was not a big issue. The breakfast they offer in the morning is great. The hotel is in an area that is close to shopping and restaurants, the subway is 2 blocks away which gives easy transportation into Manhattan.

    « Great Location for Half Marathon Race »

    My boyfriend and I stayed three nights at the Hotel Gregory because it was very close to the start of a local race we were participating in. It was so easy to get to anywhere using the subway, Uber, or our car. The staff was very helpful in providing accurate directions to the race start and any other questions we had in general. The room was very small, but it was obviously recently updated and was fine for such a short stay. The hotel is located in a very vibrant neighborhood that is very walkable and has many restaurants to choose from. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Room was large, comfortable and we both had a great nights rest on the amazingly comfortable bed. Free WI Fi was a plus, also. The staff was very helpful and a tasty breakfast was complimentary in the morning.

    Hotel under renovation, so inside wasn 't the best to look at. The front desk agent looked like she hadn't slept in days. The rooms were small but clean. Beds weren't that comfortable. The area wasn't bad. Department stores and lots of restaurants within a 1/2 mile to 3 miles. So if you like to walk everything was within walking distance.

    « Hotel in Bay Ridge »

    We stayed at the Gregory during a recent trip to visit our son. We chose this hotel as the closest to his flat and were not disappointed. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was very comfortable and clean. All in all - a quiet restful night at reasonable value. The hotel is currently remodeling so there were some issues with amenities ... Cable service was intermittent, the entry is cramped and valet parking service was slow.

    Not a bad night's stay. Decent location. Renovated room was nice, although a newer heating system would have made sense. Construction in the lobby was still ongoing, but it looks like it will be nice when completed. Overall, I'd rate this an average hotel. Nothing tremendously bad, nothing outstanding.

    « Nice hotel, despite issues »

    Prior to our arrival the hotel had charged the whole stay to our card, the general manager told us it was because "they over booked and were trying to cancel reservations that didn't go through". He did call our bank and reverse the charges, but offered no other options to fix the problem. Upon check out the staff again charged our wrong credit card, but fixed it with a phone call. The hotel itself was nice, and they are renovating.

    « 60th Birthday Weekend with Family »

    I was very happy to have the Best Western take over the Hotel Gregory! I have moved to Florida recently and given my recent experience I now have a place to return to when I visit my family that is right in the neighborhood. The room was beautiful and the morning breakfast just right. My only disappointment was the construction going on in the lobby. I am hopping that the lobby is beautifully designed and completed when my husband returned to your hotel during the holidays.

    « Making headway on renovations »

    The renovations are not in the way as much but the continuing work makes it really hard to clean. Like the new furniture and the beds. The linens could be upgraded but there is a feeling of family when I am here.

    I would stay here again. Liked the fact that the R train took me straight to where I needed to go, however ride to Times Square was little long. Staff was nice. Had problem with circuit blowing but maintenance fixed within 2 minutes from calling. Room was nice but mattresses were not the most comfortable. Stayed on first floor which was super quiet, but could hear train running every 6-8 minutes. However, did not interfere with sleep. Liked the location. Lots and lots of great shopping within walking distance and places to eat. Felt safe in this area!! Would definitely stay here again!!

    Definitely the place to be if you are looking for value for money stay in New York. Conveniently located in Bay Ridge, this Hotel is surrounded by public transportation. MTA ride to China Town / Manhattan / Time Square is only $3:00 ($2.75 with Metrocard) and would take less than an hour. For the information of our Catholic brothers and sisters, St Anselm Catholic Church is just one block up right across the street.

    this location was picked because of proximity to a meeting we had to attend. i was impressed with the rooms as they were recently re-done, the place was clean, easy walking distance to many restaurants and a nice breakfast. we partially picked this place though because it had a restaurant and bar on the premises, something i badly needed one of the days due to really bad weather outside. but the lobby, along with the restaurant/bar were under construction. it would have been nice if the hotel had given us that information up front, before we arrived.

    We had a family wedding and stayed here for the weekend. It was under construction so there was dust and didn't seem very clean in the hallways. They offered no discount due to the mess. Our room was fine but the a/c was so loud it was unbearable. They put us in another room and the a/c was almost as bad and the room was smaller for the same price. I get it.. Anywhere you go in NY is expensive. This hotel is in a convenient location to the subway,shops & resturants that was very nice. They served a continental breakfast every morning.

    « Ripped off »

    Stayed here two weeks ago for three nights. The hotel and staff were pleasant. The food was adequate. Our son recently moved into the area and the hotel was extremely well located for our three or four visits each year. The hotel was under renovation so we weren't surprised to see a hole in a wall. Never thought to tell the desk or ask for a different room. When we requested a final statement upon departing, we were told they couldn't provide one since we booked through Expedia. We didn't have time to argue so we left. A week later my husband called again for a final statement and it was sent immediately, with a $50 charge for damage to the wall. They refuse to believe us, taking the word of the housekeeper that we caused the damage. We have disputed the charge. So sad that a hotel would not believe a customer. We had intended to return there in January but will now stay somewhere else. My son said crooked hotels are not uncommon in the area.

    This was a great find in a location where we wanted to be in Brooklyn, NY. It was clean and the staff was friendly. The room was cozy, but adequate FOR THE TWO NIGHT STAY. Only suggestion would be more fruit and perhaps yogurt at breakfast. The coffee was better tyhan some hotels!
