5.77km from Frank's PizzaMy best friend wanted to plan a birthday getaway to NYC for my birthday and began looking at hotels. Ultimately, she chose the Brooklyn because it was cheaper than the other options and was very up our alley with beautiful decor. As soon as we walked in we were greeted by the scent of essential oils as well as Eli who was at the front desk. We LOVED the essential oil diffusers and the decor did not disappoint. Eli was so wonderful, he always had a smile on his face and even gave us a hug as we were waiting on the curb the next morning for an Uber. His cheery demeanor and hospitality really made our stay so much better. The room was unbelievable and we were jumping up and down at how much we loved it!! Beds were comfortable, lots of room and We loved the big windows especially because they open and we were able to get some fresh air. Later that night after coming home from a concert, we were looking for ice and Jonathan was at the front desk and able to help us. He was so sweet and made amazing conversation with us and kept us entertained even at midnight. We didn’t get to try the free breakfast because we decided to sleep in late on my birthday but I’m sure it was great. We were greeted by the manager the next morning, John, and he was so sweet and accommodating. I demanded to take a survey and I told him to give me the names of every single person that was on shift since we arrived because I wouldn’t feel right not recognizing them for their amazing hospitality. Even as we were leaving and had already checked out, Mark at the front desk was giving us amazing recommendations for our next stay for cake and steak. I will only be staying at the Brooklyn for future trips to New York city and the surrounding area. Thank you all so much for making our trip truly wonderful and we will be back to see all of you very soon!
