The workers there were very nice and helpful. I didn’t get their names but the gentleman at the desk was cool to talk too and so was his supervisor, both very respectful. Hotel is easy to find. Room was nice and clean. People said there was no microwave in their room but I had one. There was no fridge through. No breakfast as well but there are plenty of places to get food near by and it doesn’t say there’s a breakfast online so I wasn’t expecting it. Nice night life bar that’s open late. All around a good time if you’re trying to have a fun night or two.

Hotel's Favourite
Where can I start... I was greeted immediately by almost everyone in the hotel. Check in with was fantastic and fast thanks to Dexter and Alex The room was clean and perfect size, and organized to a fault. You have room for everything and most rooms have enough room for 3 people. There is a basement with games and video. There is a backyard with seating for 50 comfortablely. Then.... You have the lobby. Gorgeous bar, classy bartender - Matthew has second to none focus on detail. Fantastic, frothy margaritas. This guy could work in a Waldorf Historia. Great prices for NY.. Beer and a shot 7 bucks. make sure to ask Matthew or Devora for a slow melting giant ice cube for your drink. A stage. Bench seating. And, yes. Fooze ball!!! Love this place! Can't wait to come back!!!

Booked via Dayuse for a day's respite before a evening flight - booking confirmed for 10-4. Chose location of hotel solely to be able to get to airport easily. Arrive directly from a $120 cab from Cape Liberty port in tow with two kids, tired husband and 6 pieces of luggage to be greeted (used in the loosest sense) from the receptionist who barely gazed up when speaking, to be told they had no rooms. Didn't question my booking as could see it was there - but said that it wasn't guaranteed and she couldn't help. No apologies, no empathy, no offer of assistance or any other solution - just a computer says no, not my problem attitude. So we're in Brooklyn (as opposed to being in Manhattan) with no room or help. I asked to see a manager - when she eventually returned from the fast food restaurant, and could be bothered to talk to me (in between sips of her soda), she reiterated the couldn't care less attitude previously shown by her colleague. Whilst we sat in reception trying to work out what to do, two separate sets of people checked out. I asked why we couldn't have their rooms. She resentfully said that the maids hadn't started yet (it was 11 and our room was for 10am) and if we wanted to wait for a while that this might be possible. Not happy but this being a better option that hauling the whole family to unknown destination, at 1130 a room became available. Again no apology or any signs of humanity at all. Quite the opposite in fact - blatant hostility by this point. Told the rate I had booked for 10-4 of $95 + Taxes was still valid even though we had sat in reception since 10 - i argued and got this down to $65 only to find now they charged me the $95. Honestly - complete nightmare and wouldn't wish this on anyone - do yourself a favour and avoid as if this is the management's attitude clearly this is not going to be a one off experience. Truly appalling.
