Rated 4 out of 5 by SMAC33 Tough Location - Nice Hotel
- The staff and hotel were outstanding ...
- The location leaves a bit to be desired ...
- DID NOT LIKE the "key to floor" system on the elevator ...
- Club Room, ALTHOUGH WELL MAINTAINED, could offer a few more food perks and longer hours in the AM ...

Rated 2 out of 5 by drewco Good hotel - poor service
The rooms were very nice and clean. Excellent design. The hotel bar was awful (long wait, bad drinks), we had a private event and the food was terrible, my starwood number was never recorded.
Clearly management does not ave their eye on this property.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Paolo Value for Money in Brooklyn, NY!
Although the hotel is rather difficult to find for the taxi drivers, it is well located in downtown Brooklyn on the subway.
No 24-hour room service but access to Club Lounge for breakfast and pop.
Internet access by Wi-Fi free.
Great value for monewy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Iowan56 Clean and comfortable
The hotel was very busy over July 4 weekend, but staff did their best to take care of guests, even with 3 wedding groups to take care of. Our only disappointment was no morning swim hours for exercise. Unscheduled restaurant closing was inconvenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ladyace9 Super courteous
The entire staff was very accomodating and knowledgable about the area. The neighborhood felt safe and it was close to downtown shopping area. Plus hotel was near a couple of subway stops. Private car service was available right at the front door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gstar GREAT ROOM
Loved the comfy king bed and beautiful bathroom. The maids were very helpful .
one suggestion is maybe an auto check in so we don't have to wait in line forever behind people who don't have a room and are wasting time arguing over room prices.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SugarHillSweetie Very comfortable and convenient
If you need to be near Downtown Brooklyn or Dumbo, I highly recommend this hotel.
It is located on a quiet side street, yet within walking distance of DUMBO, the Brooklyn Bridge and fine restaurants.
Rooms are clean and very comfortable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GUFrequentTraveler1 Doing the best they can with a hotel room design that is flawed...
I stayed at the Sheraton Brooklyn for the first time on November 13th and 14th. I expect smaller accommodations when I stay in NYC, but a bit more space when in Brooklyn. I found the rooms to be small and poorly designed, with horrible lighting (one lamp in the far corner of the room, with no lighting over the desk and no lamp on the end table on the other side of the bed). The shower was also poorly designed, making it impossible to start the shower before entering without getting wet and difficult to enter (and I am slightly built) due to the shower door only opening inward and toward the shower head into a very narrow space. I found myself squeezing into a small space and rubbing up against the shower walls just to get into the shower. The fact that there was construction underway next door that made it sound like a jack hammer was being used outside my door, was beyond the hotel's control, but the way I was informed about the construction and the noise I would be experiencing at 7 am was dramatically understated. My $325 per night experience was not positive!

Rated 2 out of 5 by GOwithMARRIOTT Mediocre at Best
I had a less than average experirence at the Sheraton Brooklyn Hotel. I stayed four weeks in a row. The rooms are less than spectacular. The furniture was worn, the bedding was not cleaned thoroughly, and there were cigarette burns in the carpet of my smoke-free room.
As far as service goes, the maids forgot to clean my room on several occasions. Room service was never exceptional. I had to wait at least 45 minutes for my meal and it always arrived luke warm. The wireless internet was painfully slow. Several of the channels on TV did not have sound and no one could figure out why.
As an SPG member, I expected to have preferential treatment, but I was sadly mistaken. When I contacted the front desk to discuss a discrepancy with my reservation, I was put on hold for 7 minutes at a time and spoke with 3 different people. My issue was not resolved and I did not appreciate the (lack of) customer service I was shown. I will not be staying at the Sheraton any longer. I canceled 28 days of reservations and will never recommend them to anyone I care about.

Rated 3 out of 5 by REDD loved the location
I loved the location. My room wasn't serviced as requested on the second day even though I called. Room service was extremely slow. Staff was pleasant. Parking was ok but I didnt like that I had to leave the keys with the attendant.

This hotel has a great location!! You can get many types of food nearby and even an IHOP around the corner. Everything was great except I just thought the room would be a bit bigger. Overall i most definitely recommend this hotel!

Outstanding property. The staff is fantastic and with the leadership of the general manager Marie they excel in every hospitality category. I travel frequently and stay in facilities all over the country. This is one of the best.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Eliza8 BEWARE!! Hotel on construction site
If you like being right up against a block-long construction site with jackhammering, banging, beeping and all kinds of racket starting at 7:00am -- then this hotel is for you! If you want a quiet, restful night of sleep, then go elsewhere. As a "preferred guest," I was given a room overlooking a mammouth construction site, with noise and commotion that started jangling my nerves at 7am. I don't think even earplugs would have worked as the vibration could be felt throughout the building. After lodging a complaint at the front desk on the way out, a cheerless receptionist pointed to a sign with a paragraph of fine print apparently notifying guests of the construction. I had no memory of this sign being there the night before when I checked in. I am extremely disappointed in Sheraton. With such an obvious liability at their doorstep, this location (downtown Brooklyn) should have been more forthcoming about the situation. I shudder to think what kind of treatment their "non-preferred" guests were getting! I cannot recommend this hotel given the current construction going on.

Although the buffet breakfast price is a little overpriced for the food selection, our overall experience was excellent. The stafff was always greeted us, smiled, and eager to assist whenever we had questions. Great staff.

Came to NY to watch basketball at the Barclay Center. The hotel location was great for that. It is also a block from the subway for easy access to all of New York. Friendly and helpful staff. We would stay there again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by APJOHNSON All-around good visit
This was an all-around good visit. The rooms were clean, although definitely on the small side. On a previous visit we had a larger room, so perhaps be sure to specify if you need a room that accomodates a crib etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AKtravelor A tree grows in Brooklyn and a 4 star hotel
We had an excellent stay at the Sheraton. Brooklyn has changed lots of construction and places popping up. Excellent soundproofing in our room. Did not hear the construction across the street. The rooms are small but lots of light , good bed and everything works. Staff is friendly and helpful. The restaurant needs work. We came in a 11:20 am for a late breakfast. They no longer serving breakfast. No exceptions, nobody in the restaurant not a good sign. we looked at the menu burgers and main dishes. We ordered burgers with no chees and asked for salad instead of French fries. we got the salad in about 20 minutes and it was good. the burger came a 12:20 with cheese. A burger came at 1:00 without cheese. we were hungry and the burger was good. We got an apology from the waitress. No one came in while we were there. very disappointed. We never went back. That being said the Hotel with that exception was excellent. we had a club floor so we had a nice breakfast with fresh fruit there every morning. The location is near a couple of subway lines and we felt safe walking around.

I spend way too many nights in hotels, and usually I don't sleep very well. But the beds at the Sheraton Brooklyn were almost as good as mine at home (minus the dogs).
Great hotel at a convenient location.
