    « Clean but Checking in was torturous »

    This hotel is clean and in a great location. Our difficulty was with check in. We were in town for a funeral. I booked 3 rooms on two different reservations. For some reason the desk staff could not comprehend this. They found the first room, swiped my card, and then tried to send us on our way. When I repeated that I had another reservation with 2 more rooms, they found that reservation, and swiped my card again. Then gave me a key for one more room. I then had to point out that there was a third room on the same reservation. It took over 30 minutes to check in, at 10pm at night. All the while my 90 year old parents were waiting (one standing, one in a wheelchair) to go to their rooms, which they could not do without my help. There was no sense of urgency on the part of the staff. I requested a n accessible room in my reservation, but none were available. Of the three rooms, one was larger than the other. I didn't realize this and eventually sent my parents to their room with one of my children, only to find out later that the wheelchair did not fit further than the entryway. By the time I found out the size difference, they had already struggled though getting into bed in the very cramped space. It would have been nice if the staff had pointed out that one of the rooms would be a better than choice for them than the others. Additionally, when I asked about parking, I was told that there weren't any valet spots left. After I sent my family out in a thunderstorm to find parking, they suddenly found two spots. In short, I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the hotel. I felt that the staff was inept, which was very difficult after a long day of traveling with the elderly.

    « Clean and comfortable »

    Clean, comfortable and great service. Not far from subway station, and in the middle of Brooklyn's Bay Ridge neighborhood. Plenty of places to eat and shop nearby. Although we arrived too early in the day to check in at that moment, we appreciate being able to store our luggage there while we ran a few errands before checking in later that day. We were also able to keep our luggage at the hotel for several hours after check out time before having to head back to the airport.

    « Great Location, Nice Hotel »

    Had everything I needed for a short business trip to Brooklyn- quick check-in, fast internet, comfortable and clean rooms, stores and restaurants located 1 block away in either direction (3rd and 5th Avenues), coffeemaker microwave and refrigerator in room, better than average buffet breakfast with all the usuals plus scrambled eggs and turkey sausage. Would definitely stay here again.

    « Great Hotel in a great neighborhood! »

    Clean rooms, excellent breakfast, friendly and accommodating staff. 2 blocks from subway - easy travel to Manhattan, Coney Island, etc. Lots of great restaurants and shops within walking distance. Safe neighborhood with lots of culture!

    « Ok »

    Check in was slow understaffed you could tell. My shower door was broken my room was fine breakfast kinda sucked begals we're good, the bar was closed at or bye 11. There were hookers sneaking in and out and some cagey hood rats.its my 3rd time there. I don't think I will stay again so all in all not good The bed sucked to and the heat sounded like a jet plane. Plus big problem absolutely no parking to unload your stuff . You have to usually park at least 4-6 blocks away so I gotta say I wasn't happy.

    « Christmas in Bay Ridge »

    My husband and I had a lovely stay at your Hotel Gregory over the Christmas weekend. We are natives of Bay Ridge but now live in Florida. Your hotel has been beautifully renovated and it was a pleasure staying here while visiting my relatives.

    « Wonderful hotel, great staff, fun neighborhood »

    We wanted to stay close to NYC at Christmas time, and found a fantastic hotel in the southern end of Bay Ridge. The staff was tremendous - from the cheerful breakfast room manager to the quiet and efficient housekeeping staff. While I prefer queen size beds, the double beds were very comfortable and the temperature in the room was easy to control.

    « convenient location »

    This hotel is convenient to shopping, restaurants, transportation. However, the room had stained drapes, poor lighting, dusty & dirty headboard and a tiny bathroom for a "king suite". The price was high for the Christmas weekend, so not a good value. Also, we had to reset the room key every day - a real nuisance.

    « very nice hotel Christmas Eve »

    we stay at Best Western Gregory Hotel when we visit my daughter on Christmas Eve - location is great for us. staff has always been very helpful and courteous - our check in this visit was quick and courteous - rooms are very nice and bathroom has been updated with a nice walk in shower. - valet parking is a plus since parking in the area can be challenging. very nice buffet breakfast - food was replenished as it was used - the server was extremely pleasant

    « Worst experience »

    This was not a good experience the staff had terrible customer service. I called before I got there and asked was there early check in. They told me I could pay $60 to check in early. When I got there after traveling for 24 hrs to get there this was not the case. They offered us breakfast which was nice but we slept in the breakfast room nd lobby for over 3 hrs. This was very embarrassing. I heard people checking out of their rooms early but they still refused to put us in a room even though I was willing to pay the extra fee. We literally only spent 1hr in the room we payed for. They seemed to not care at all about out concern when we talked to them about it.

    « hotel is bad service »

    I change there for my wedding day. Ask the frint desk to fix my room for professional pictures and she said to ask someone else. Ask the cleaning lady she said is wasn't her room seactio. I had to do my own room and ir was dusty i was afraid my dress will get dirty.

    « Basic but nice enough »

    The room was clean, large and very nicely decorated. The bed was comfortable. Noisy from the street noise and thin walls/floors. No facecloths in the bathroom. Front desk staff was nice and helpful. Breakfast was what you'd expect for free. Avoid the eggs and sausage.

    « Reasonably priced for Brooklyn, but in need of updating »

    For the price of this room in Brooklyn NY, this is a good hotel. It is not fancy and in need of a redo. The floor layout is strange and confusing. We had a chance to speak with three of the staff at the front desk and only one of them was professional, pleasant and helpful. The other two seemed totally disinterested in their job. The complimentary breakfast was unremarkable.

    I am very happy with my choice to stay at the Best Western Gregory Hotel. It is clean, comfortable, friendly, near public transportation and close to wonderful restaurants. I stay there every time I go to Brooklyn.

    « Good place to stay in Brooklyn »

    The hotel has a good location, having restaurants and stores nearby, a subway station is located 2 blocks away from the hotel that will connect you with all the things that you can do in the city. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast is good. The only cons about this hotel would be that sometimes you can hear the noise made from the trains of the subway.

    « Brooklyn experience »

    I stayed for 1 night and I liked it. I have stayed in this hotel in the past too; the location is very convenient for me and I can avoid the traffic of Manhattan, meet my friends and be close to public transportation

    Perfect location for our family event a block away. Parking is offsite with a valet. Staff was very helpful. It took some getting used to when the subway runs under the hotel. The rumbling took a while to get used to.

    « A really lovely hotel near so much. »

    The Gregory is located in the heart of Bay Ridge Brooklyn, one of the most lovely and picturesque neighborhoods of NYC. The rooms are modern, clean and pleasant. The service is great. Upon arriving the woman at the desk welcomed us cheerfully and gave us all the info we needed for a restful and enjoyable stay. They have valet parking at an additional cost of $25 per night which really came in handy as Bay Ridge street parking in that area can be tough. The hotel is located near public transportation (subway and bus) plus there are plenty of car services around. There are no shortage of eating places of all kinds of food and price range. The hotel includes breakfast which offers an ample selection of hot and cold dishes. The Gregory is located near the business center of Bay Ridge, but walk a few blocks down and you'll be in one of the most beautiful neighborhoods with lovely homes and harbor views. Can't wait to return.

    « Great place »

    « Overall a very nice place to stay »

    Very clean, safe, convenient to the subway and shopping areas, a good place to stay. Other Best Westerns I have stayed at have had swimming pools but this one doesn't. That's the only negative comment I have. Probably, the hotel is too small and a swimming pool would take up a lot of room needed for other things.

    « our stay in New York »

    The Gregory is an updated hotel in Brooklyn. The room were good and the renovations made the stay very good.The breakfast room was awesome and gave us a good start on our day to see NYC. Would stay there again in the future.

    « clean, safe haven in Bay Ridge neighborhood of Brooklyn »

    Very clean, moderately priced( for New York !) hotel. Centrally located in an area with no other nearby hotels with easy access to restaurants, transportation and residential neighborhoods. Includes adequate breakfast with good overall service by staff.

    « 3 Days in Brooklyn »

    The Best Western Gregory is a good choice if you are looking for a convenient location, centrally located to most of Brooklyn, as well as easy access to Manhattan via subway or car. The hotel staff was quite pleasant and the rooms were neat and upgraded. The only issue is that (probably because it's an older location) there was a slight musty odor. Not too offensive, but you could notice it. Continental breakfast was sufficient, but there were plenty of options within walking distance. valet parking is available, but not guaranteed. Upon checking out, there was a sign at the front desk informing guests checking in that the parking was full. Street parking is available but difficult to find. Also, do note that you can feel (and hear) the subway pass under the building about every 8 - 10 minutes. I'm a native so it didn't bother me.

    « Awesome cost x benefit »

    We had a nice stay in this hotel. Clean bedrooms, very close to the subway station and nice breakfast. Not to mention they have a caring staff, specially Gary, who is responsible for the organization of the breakfast. Amazing cost x benefit. Recommended.

    « BW Gregory Hotel »

    Nice getaway. In retrospect for those visiting from South Florida it reminds me of quaint Hotels in Coral Gables, and Landmarks Hotels of South Beach. The Staff has great rapport, and the hotel location is excellent for local shopping. The access to public transportation re bus and subway is just a block away. The Brooklyn location is in a heavy pedestrian area that is active late night if you prefer not to travel into Manhattan. Great location to consider for Focus Groups, Business Meetings, and Conventions.

    « So horrible didn't even get to stay here »

    Definitely and absolutely one of the worst hotel staff I've ever dealt with. Kenneth the manager is very rude and unaccommodating . I booked 2 suite rooms here for my wedding weekend so I'd have somewhere to get ready and Gehad, the person who booked my stay messed up very bad and only booked one suite for one night instead of 2 suites for two nights. I called two times on this issue and Kenneth was very rude, saying a stated my case already but there's nothing he can do. Very uncaring and not understanding about the situation at all. Knowing that the staff made this HUGE mistake on my WEDDING weekend he did not offer a way to fix the situation or any compensation for their mistakes. On top of all this I left Richard Murphy, the general manager, 2 messages which he never returned. The only employee there that has some sense of what she was doing was Kim. So thank you Kim for being understanding and trying to help in any way you could, but I would suggest looking for a job elsewhere cuz working with people like Kenneth, Gehad, and Richard is going to make you look bad and make you job impossible and harder.

    Great place to stay near all kinds of transportation-both subway and buses were in walking distance. We would hop on a train every morning and go to Manhattan. Before we would go sight seeing we would enjoy a large selections of breakfast items-bagels waffles muffins etc. The Staff was especially helpful we would get help with places to see and how to get there. Would stay there again without any doubt

    Air conditioner was separated from wall.Rugs were not very clean. Room price was absurd for what they offered. They wanted a $ 25.00 surcharge for parking your car.There was a chemical odor in the bedding. Had to sleep on top of bedding.I could go on but it won't matter. Rather sleep on a park bench

    « Disappointed »

    First there was no parking at the hotel. Elevator didn't work so we had to climb 4 flights of stairs every time we came or went. The stairwell was dirty and didn't even want to touch the handrail. Breakfast was terrible. No fresh fruit salad. It was a fruit cup. Everything needed filling. Rugs were dirty and had Togo down 5 floors for ice.

    « Touring vacation, good reviews for other hotels, the Gregory Hotel was a nighmare. »

    Made reservation at 10:00 AM, arrived at 5:00 pm, spent thirty minuets registering, and then told the elevator does not work, I would have to carry my luggage to the second floor; the bar was closed because there was no ice. When I reacted with displeasure, I was told, ?do you want the room or not? this time in the evening in rush hour New York, what choice did I have. When I asked for directions getting from Brooklyn to New York, I was told it would take one hour and forty minuets, it takes twenty. The next day I informed the desk I would be leaving at 4:00 in the morning and would like my car. When this request was refused, Emery stated she was the only one working and she was the supervisor. I said in the morning I would get my own car. When I called in the morning Emory told me the security guard was not happy but he got the car parked in front. I thanked the security person, and tipped him, which I received no reply. Loaded my car, drove four blocks onto the expressway where my tire immediately went flat, almost causing a terrible accident with my family in the car. Three hours later I found a station to fix the tire. At this time I was shown a three inch rivet with the sleeve in my tire, I was told this was done intentionally and had to be shot into the tire with a battery charged tool. In the light of day I also discovered a key scratch across the bottom of the car. I immediately called the hotel and spoke with Emery and accused the security Guard and her for expressing her anger about our conversation with security. She assured me that if he did it she had no knowledge, but he would be fired. I truly doubt this, but did express a number of ways I might be able to prove this criminal act. I am hoping a camera in front of the hotel or in the parking lot will show this act being committed and identify the offender, at which time I will pursue criminal and civil action. I would also like to add that I am a 100 percent disable military person and have never been treated so badly.

    « Lackluster Service At Best Western Gregory Hotel »

    We received lackluster service. Our reservation was disregarded and our room was given away and we were not contacted at all prior to this happening. A bug crawled up my business partner's luggage in the lobby. We were forced into a room with only one bed so I had to sleep on the pull out couch. We were there on business and incredibly disappointed. They did not apologize for the inconvenience and simply called us to let us know that the room did offer a pull out couch. It was not a great experience overall and I was very disappointed.

    This was an average visit. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. the room was very basic, but fine for an overnight stay. Our "room with a view" according a website used to make the reservation? The view was of a back alleyway. Not scenic at all.

    « Good value, but lacking a bit in hospitality »

    The rooms are fairly priced, the breakfast was above average, and the location is within walking distance of many bars and restaraunts. There is a bar in the lobby, but it was not open either of the 2 nights I stayed. Shower floor was dirty. I would have felt better if it was stained, but I was able to clean it with a napkin and water. Air conditioner was quite noisy. 25$/day valet service was poor. I was told to call about 15 min before I wanted the vehicle, but I waited over 40min and was late for my meeting. The next day I called 45 min in advance thinking I was doing them a favor but was made to feel like I was a bother. If I had to stay there again, it wouldn't be the end of the world, but I would probably try a different option if there was something available.

    « Convenient, Clean, and Comfortable »

    We stayed at the Gregory while visiting family in New York. The hotel was just perfect for our needs. The location was near where we had to be and was just two blocks from the subway stop. That made it easy to go everywhere. Check-in was smooth and the staff was very nice. We never had a problem that they couldn't solve. We were given a room on the fourth floor facing the street. We didn't have any problems with noise or with the subway. Our room was comfortable although a bit small. We had a queen bed and it was very close to the bureau at the foot of the bed. It made it difficult to move around the room. However, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean and housekeeping was fine. Be aware that you will be charged extra for the room safe unless you bring it up at check out. The breakfast buffet was very nice. There was both hot and cold foods. A make-it-yourself waffle machine was available and there were also scrambled eggs and either bacon or sausages each morning. They also had bagels and rolls, yogurt and fruit cups, cold and hot cereal, and juices, coffee, and tea. Everything was well stocked except for the coffee. The coffee carafes were quite small and were replenished enough. All-in-all we were very happy with the hotel and will stay there again.

    We stayed here a few years back before the remodel and had an amazing customer service experience. This trip we were very impressed with the total remodel, very welcoming lobby and nice upgrades to the rooms. Our front counter check in experience was as good as last time, Jennifer was friendly and very helpful. She let us know about breakfast and that there was still a bar but only open till 9 pm. Our room on the fourth floor was nice, clean and comfortable. Everything we needed. The night staff was not as friendly as the morning staff or the staff from our previous visit, matter of fact she had headphones on and wasn't even aware of us returning to the hotel. Never looked up at us, we could have been robbers and she wouldn't have know it. Next morning Jennifer was back and the young man cleaning the breakfast tables was helpful with getting me ice for my cooler. Parking is on your own but we had no trouble finding parking each time right out front, just have to make sure to fed the meter by 9 am. All in all a lovely stay

    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.

    « 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.

    « 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.

    « 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.

    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"

    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.

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.

    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.

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.

The breakfast was ok, standard as in bagels cereal and some fruits. Only thing i dont like is the price. The hotel to me is expensive .

    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.

    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.

    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!
