Rated 4 out of 5 by heynewbie123 Great hotel
My only complaint: We were upgraded to a suite and in the part of the room nearest the elevators, the wifi worked pretty well. But if we were in the part of the room closest to the street in front of the hotel, the wifi did not work well at all. Wish the wifi signal was stronger.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jay22 Good Location for Work and Play
Good location near many subway stops. I found the space chairs in the lobby to be a good place to work on the computer. A block away, there is the innovative DeKalb Market- where you can check out a bunch of artisan shops and restaurants located in modified shipping containers.

Our doom was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly. We were there on a weekend night and were not bothered at all by the construction in the area.

I love this place. Neighborhood is great and convenient, even for someone who works in Manhattan.
Would like to see more vegan food options at the hotel; fewer carb and sugar foods.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rose32555 Very cool and funky hotel
Next time I visit my family I will definitely stay at Aloft New York Brooklyn. Great experience. We only stayed one night and therefore did not use the food/beverage, pool, spa or fitness center. But will consider next time. Thus I cannot rate these amenities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SusanandBob Fun place to stay in Brooklyn
As usual, the staff at the Brooklyn Aloft was very friendly and made us feel at home. The location is great - a block away from the Jay Street subway station gives easy access to Manhattan, and the Brooklyn Bridge and DUMBO are a pleasant walk from the hotel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by howie123 Disappointing
I am a devoted Starwood customer and was disappointed with the Hotel. Room was fine. Elevators extremely slow. Construction in lobby was a bother. Had to go out of the hotel for coffee.
Getting my car took a half hour. Some staff okay, some indifferent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Little2011 This hotel is consistent with all Aloft Hotels
It's in a great area in a redeveloping part of Brooklyn, just a few blocks off the main street. It's close to the subway so getting to Manhattan is easy. The front desk staff is friendly and professional. We will stay here again instead of Manhattan.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Leighb Nice hotel, but ...
Nice hotel but why are all of the smoke detectors beeping in the lobby cause the batteries are dead? According to staff, been doing it for many months. Not only unprofessional, but makes you wonder what other critical services have been ignored.

Awesome customer service, the front desk people went above and beyond to make my daughter stay incredibly comfortable. I will as a Starwood preferred gold member, I usually get great service, but this time I got incredible service.

Very modern and comfortable, very well located, just few meters from subway stations, and in a very swag zone of Brooklyn. The staff tries always to help you. Very recommendable

A well-designed boutique hotel. Lots of energy, friendly and helpful staff (thanks Jadie!). Walking distance to Brooklyn Bridge and wonderful Smith Street haunts. If you don’t mind smaller, boutique rooms, this is a perfect fit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by howiegee 1st time in New Yrok
I booked this hotel thru BOOK-IT website and there was no mention of construction going on right next to the ALOFT that was VERY LOUD and started at 7:00 am in the morning. Not very pleasant but they did offer to give a free cold breakfast to people staying there of cereal and bagels...HA. I definitely didnt expect a free room or anythng but maybe a discount.
My 2nd issue was I stayed in rm 1106 initially and I found a couple of ants the first night. The next morning when I got up I killed at least 20 before I called the front desk to talk to them about what I found. They moved me to room 1203 but I had to call back a 2nd time about an 1 1/2 hours later because I was still waiting for someone to come bring me the new key and help move my stuff. Didnt ask for a discount because I figured it would have been offered or SOMETHING but nothing was offered.
Would I stay at ALOFT again....of course everything else was very pleasant and I have stayed at other ALOFTS before with no issues. I iwll actually be coming back in January of 2014 and will stay at the ALOFT again.

A typical Aloft Hotel. Well situated room; very responsive staff. Only problem was the air conditioning in the room barely worked. For a new hotel, the air conditioning unit was from a different decade.

Extremely great night sleep due to the wonderful downlite pillow and the mattress....so, comfortable.
Would like to have had a directory in the room of local, walk-to restaurants and info about if there was a pool.

I love this hotel. Super cute and clean. Staff was very accommodating and allowed late check out at 2pm which was great since we were out super late the night before. Only downside was it does not have a pool.

The staff were very accomodating to our needs. The hotel location is very accessible to subway. We found a parking space on the street and did not need to use paid parking. The rooms are clean and comfortable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SoKerDad Family stay, yeah not so much!
I'm 40 yrs old with a wife and 13 yr old son. We booked Aloft Brooklyn because my son had a soccer game in NY and it was somewhat close to the fields. All the amenities were cool... the ice machines were broke so you had to ask for little bags of ice at the front desk. Anyway, we got to our room and every single inch of space was in use. I felt like we couldn't turn around without bumping into each other. We were right off the elevator and everytime someone got on or off, I felt like they were hanging out in our room. Noise was definately an issue for us. We were not in NY to party till the sun came up, but the adjacent rooms must have been. You could hear every word of their conversations through our walls. The room to our right had their TV on and it was LOUD till 5am. When we checked in the desk clerk offered us free drink coupons and we went down to the bar in the lobby 4 times, and it was never opened. Again not looking to stay up all night partying. Cool atmosphere, staff was friendly, just don't think this is a hotel for families that actually want to get some sleep there.

Staying at an A-Loft is always a positive experience. One warning about this location: There is quite a bit of construction going on in the area, so get a room on an upper floor if you want to sleep in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MR83 Cool restaurant. The hotel was being renovated and was not managed as i would expect
The hotel was at a good location and rooms and customer service was good. However, as it was being renovated the left took forever to come to the floor (i was in 5th) and it was extremely inconvenient.

It is a cute and nice hotel but I can hear everything from the next door. I was little uncomfortable about it.
The sink has a drain problem and I had to wait until water drains without view.
