Nice, Mod Brooklyn Hotel, near ManhattenPosted Nov 25, 2014
Pros: Very nice and very clean. The rooms were outfitted very nice.
Cons: Parking! Parking! A written warning in reference to when move cars and where to move in reference to "street cleaning". We recieved a $45 ticket!
Location: An area that appears to be reviving. Convenient to the subway, not far from alot of shops on Manhattan Drive.
After friends mentioned staying at The Box House, we decided to also. We found the place charming and spotless! The staff, on a whole, were knowledgeable and very friendly. Our room was spotless and it was equipped with everything we had hoped for plus more. Plenty of coffee & tea with accompaniments and refilled. The unit was comfy and the bed was very comfortable. On the cold nights we enjoyed warming up in the Sauna. We had room 8 on the first floor facing the Pulaski Bridge. We did encounter traffic noise starting around 6:00 AM the first night, but the next couple of nights we didn't even notice it. The location is in walking distance to the subway & ferry and very convenient to get to Manhattan. If you are driving yourself to Box House, there is on street parking. BEWARE! We were advise to move our car from one spot on the street to another because of street cleaning. We were told we could leave it at the new spot through Wednesday with no problem, but we received a $45 ticket Tuesday at the new spot - because of street cleaning! We were told the schedule must have recently changed. We could not locate any posted sign about the street cleaning, but were told after the fact it was way up at the beginning of the block.

Check out nearest subway before planning journeysPosted Nov 2, 2014
Pros: Hip and cool
Cons: Booking taxis
Location: Green point is up and coming but still a bit raw around the edges.Williamsburg is Hipster Central ( don,t shave!)
Good hotel,room very comfortable and in an up and coming area. Two tips: 1) checkout the nearest subway, we spent ages getting to Greenpoint not realising you can walk across the Pulaski bridge to a subway 5 mins away saving loads of time and making journeys easy and reducing transfers. 2) ensure your taxi to the airport is BOOKED, we thought ours was but it did not arrive causing a bit of panic on our early morning departure. The Oyster bar in Grand Central station is great for lunch and only one stop on the subway once you adhere to the advice in 1) above!

Neat hotel!Posted Oct 24, 2014
Pros: Clean room and nice ambiance!
Location: Location was a bit remote - not in a very populated area
Great industrial chic hotel! Very retro and cool. Loved our stay. Only drawback was that hotel is a bit removed from the rest of Brooklyn. We would definitely stay there again!

Beautiful design, roomy and clean.Posted Sep 30, 2014
Pros: Exceptional design and thoughtful execution...everything is geared to the guests' comfort and enjoyment. Super clean and super-cool.
Cons: The housekeeping staff could be given English lessons...none seemed to speak English, but eventually we went to the front desk for assistance.
Location: GreenPoint, Brooklyn, NYC. Lots of interesting shops and restaurants. Free car service to drop you at a restaurant or the Ferry or station.
This hotel lived up to the stellar reviews. Rooms were wonderfully well designed with high ceilings, skylights, fully appointed kitchen, luxurious bathroom, comfy bed. Interesting vintage knick knacks and original art throughout pulled it all together. Immaculately clean everywhere. Car service and staff suggestions helped us find perfect dining spots in the neighbourhood and made our visit even more enjoyable. Would definitely recommend this place and wish we could have stayed longer.

Nice hotel very close to ManhattanPosted Sep 1, 2014
Pros: Enough room for family vacation

Generally a better place to stay, but there is no telephone, and most networks are poor inside the rooms
