Brooklyn visit.

Posted Feb 14, 2015
We enjoyed our stay at the McCarren. Both our daughters live of Bedford and it was so convenient for us to just walk to their apartments. Great coffee shops and dining all within walking distance. It will be great to go back in the spring and enjoy the park. Hotel was very comfortable after long days out and about.

Good Hotel

Posted Jan 20, 2015
Pros: It is clean and new, the personnel is very good.
Cons: Change the chair, for a higher chair, and put a higher stool to use the desk.
Location: It is very good situated, lots of restaurants in the area.
The Hotel is very good situated, but as many Hotels in NY, the room is too small. There is no sitting area, and the desk is to low to work on. There is a rocking chair that also is very low, very unconfortable. The personnel is very good and nice. The bathroom is small but clean, the walking shower is very good. The closet area is very small. For a short stay I recommend it.

ruhiges Stadthotel in Williamsburg/Brooklyn

Posted Jan 12, 2015
Pros: Sehr gute Erreichbarkeit von Manhattan Zimmer / Bad / Restaurant und Aussicht von der Roof Top Bar
Cons: Breakfast to go sollte etwas reichhaltiger sein
Location: Man fährt mit dem L-Train 4 Stationen und ist am Union-Square. Von dort aus ist alles möglich.
Wir haben eine Unterkunft gesucht wo wir Abends die Hektik Manhattans hinter uns lassen konnten und durch Boutiquen und kleine Kneipen schlendern konnten.

Not worth the price

Posted Dec 23, 2014
Pros: The location; staff
Cons: Room size; updated mattress/bedding
If you want a hotel in a hip Brooklyn neighborhood you cannot beat the location of the McCarren Hotel & Pool. However, our experience was not worth the price we paid for the room. The first room we were given did not have functioning lights. After calling down to the front desk it took over 20 minutes for us to be moved to a new room. The new room, while clean, was incredibly small with barely enough room to navigate around the bed. With our suitcases we were cramped to say the least. I am a frequent traveler and this bed was one of the most uncomfortable I have slept on in recent memory. Despite having slept in for several hours we woke up the next morning exhausted. Overall, the staff was friendly (and even provided us with drink vouchers for the inconvenience re: our first room) but the room was not up to par. If the price point per night was dropped I would consider staying again, however, until then there are more than enough modern, luxe hotels in NYC to choose from.

Lack of management in general

Posted Nov 22, 2014
A rooftop bar where they forgot to refill the white wine.........breakfast very poor, long wait, staff which clearly lacked instructions, a pity and unnecessary!!! You cannot expect to have concerned employees if you aren't yourself through invisibility.

Modern hotel in Brooklyn

Posted Nov 15, 2014
Pros: Proximity to where we needed to be and the modern decor
Cons: Coffee...whether in the room or part of a free breakfast. Had to go to lobby restaurant, wait too long, and pay $5 for a small cup. Unacceptable!
Typical small room for NY hotel. Staff were helpful.
