Aloft New York Brooklyn

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Felt like a dorm room. Scratched headboards. Felt like airplane compressed cabin. Claustro.

We have always enjoyed staying at Aloft properties and will continue to do so. But if we had to stay in Brooklyn, we would find something else. The hotel soft goods are in need of a rehab. The headboard in our room looked old and one of the shades was broken. It definitely felt low-rent to us. The staff was great though, as usual.

Enjoyed my stay, however, one night we had really loud neighbors and the hotel doors seem to slam easily causing things to rattle. Draw back in the evening; only 2 elevators available because the 3rd is used only for the private rooftop club, so wait to go up or down takes longer.

A quick New York long weekend. Will stay here again.

Rooms were clean and spacious. Perfect location near train station and restaurants. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

We stay in Brooklyn quite regularly to visit our daughter. Finding a reasonably priced yet comfortable hotei has been a challenge. We found the Aloft hotel to be a great fit for us:: Tasteful and comfortable rooms and smiling faces everywhere. The pool was a wonderful extra. We will stay here on our next visit.

Aloft are all nice, modern hotels with an Ikea sensibility. I appreciate modern design so I like these. The room layouts are a little different which I like. Always on my list if I want a good value and better than standard hotel room. The check in procedure is kind of weird and chaotic at this one though. There's a round desk with crazed hosts trying and failing to get lined up room guests there keys. Once past that it's fine though.

The staff was nice. The hotel wasn't amazing but decent customer service. Worth the price.

Everything about this hotel was great. It was clean and he staff was very professional. There was completely breakfast every morning. Also there was a starbucks right outside the hotel which was very convenient.

Stayed here for 2 nights. If you want to stay just outside of downtown Manhattan, the location doesnt get any better. Only a couple subway stops away from the core of downtown. Parked the car for cheap for 2 days and explored city with ease. Super friendly staff. Rooms are small and tight.

We were happy with the stay except that we were waken up by a service man at 4 am. We learned that the service man knocked at the wrong room. I think this is not an acceptable mistake in the hospitality industry.

We had a great time and the hotel location cannot be better. It's easy to find and a short ride into manhattan other parts of Brooklyn and queens. The valet parking is Waaaay too expensive and there is a lot of construction going on in the area so there isn't any parking. We did get lucky and get a free parking space one evening and we left the car there for the rest of our trip.

This is such a fun hotel. If you are looking for the traditional hotel experience, go to the Sheraton next door. If you are looking for cool and modern, this is the place. There's a pool table in the obby, along with a small bar and mini deli full of ready to eat goodies. When we arrived in the early evening, there was a DJ playing music. There was a coffee station set up as well. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. We even found a parking spot on the street. Our room was spotless and even though our room faced the street, we slept piecefully. The bathroom is a little strange with a giant walk in shower...more like a mini room with no doors. Our bed was great. We loved our super modern room. We will postively go back. We have family in Brooklyn but it would be fun to go for an over night and get to use all the facilities. (We didn't get to check out the bar in the penthouse.)

Pros: clean, comfortable room. Okay area. Some nice places to eat in walking distance. Cons: Gimmicky hotel that somehow feels cheaper than it costs. Everything they try to sell you is overpriced. Construction going on all around the outside of the hotel. Daily intercom room announcements.

PROS: Super cute, modern hotel. We got a very clean room in a convenient location if you need to catch a train elsewhere in Brooklyn or if you're seeing a show at the Barclays Center. Although the hotel is currently surrounded by construction, we never heard ANY of it because our room was completely sound proof! <--- that was a HUGE plus!! Staff was very courteous & professional. CONS: ...$350 for a Saturday night stay in a VERY small room in a part of brooklyn that has very little to offer other than the Barclays Center??? That price was way over what Id expect for a room that small in Downtown Brooklyn.

lots of fun, very nice staff and a beautiful room! thanks guys!

Nice room. Very efficient comfortable. Difficult to find at night

After spending 5 days in New Jersey, it was time to head to NYC. The hotel I had originally booked to stay in was unacceptable in quality so I booked at the Aloft. The Aloft is an awesome hotel and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. As soon as I walked in the front door I felt the great energy. It is not like a typical hotel. While small, it is filled with dance music, the lobby area has a pool table and small bar and a "re-fueling" center with healthy snack food. The room was not your typical hotel room either...it was "new age" I would recommend this hotel highly especially for the younger adults with no children and those seeking a healthy and environmentally conscious hotel.

The location wasgreat. Close to several eating spots, stores, subway access, The Pier and Brooklyn Bridge access were close and easy to get to. The room was very comfy, and efficient.

The service was great. Right in the heart of downtown Brooklyn. Convenient to the subway. Only problem - parking. Parking is at an open lot around the corner. So, if you drive be prepared for that. Hotel was nice and clean with good size rooms.
