These folks know what they're doing!

We felt very safe there, in part because it's a relatively small hotel. Better hotels in Manhattan... See full review

Only negative was the location

Very new and clean hotel. Had free Wi-Fi nice breakfast bar, but very limited parking. Location was an easy walk to the subway, but felt uncomfortable in this neighborhood.

Short stay

The hotel was quiet and the room was very comfortable and reminiscent of home. I was surprised that the temperature was set perfectly when I walked in.

Overall good but still too expensive

This kind of hotel worth 80/day but the price was 130, plus taxes and fees which was more than 150/day. I was looking for something around 100, but cannot find one. I remembered I lived in a hotel in NY at 100 several years ago, but at some place I needed to first take a bus and then metro to downtown. This location is just 40 minutes by metro, which is good. Parking space about 10 spots, so if you arrive late, you'll have to park on the street.

Next to Luxury in the middle of Brooklyn

I love the location! It is convenient to public transportation and everything you want to eat. If you are open to traveling and being apart of the neighborhood then this is the hotel for you. The parking is very limited especially since parking is not available on street immediate in front of the hotel. I found myself hurrying to return to the hotel to get a parking spot because I definitely wasn't going to look for a spot. (left NY for this same reason.) I felt safe, the water was hot, and the front desk staff was nice and accommodating.

Weekend stay in Brooklyn

I enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Arena last weekend. Both my grown kids live in Brooklyn and the hotel was very convenient to the subway. My son stayed with me and we enjoyed the super comfortable beds and the wonderful breakfasts in the morning! The rooms were very clean and the bathrooms also very nice. I would deffinately stay there again!

The mirrors were good but the smoke was not.

It seemed to me that this would have been a pretty good place to stay, coming to town to see family in Brooklyn. Yes, the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. However, the hotel advertises itself as a non-smoking hotel...and the first night when I went up to my floor there was strong cigarette smoke in that hallway. I thought to myself (I was very tired) that perhaps it was only my room which was non-smoking and I didn't make a big deal about it. However, the second day that there was choking smoke in the hallway as well as in my room, I called down to the desk and someone came up to my room and agreed that it was horrible and agreed that 'someone would look into it". I spent a very difficult night. My son was with me as well and confirmed that the smoke was very strong. The next morning when I went to the desk they denied that it had even happened -- that there had ever been smoke there. The neighborhood was not nearly as safe as I had expected -- which is not the fault of the hotel but it is what it is. I wish I could stay there again but because of the smoking and the staff response, I am sorry but I cannot.
