While in New York with my mom, I decided to do unthinkable and stay in….. Brooklyn. It’s still a social faux pas, but I wanted to experience new things. The ‘W’ hotel chain has a new hipster hotel called “Aloft” that has started popping up around the country. We decided on the “Aloft Brooklyn”. It’s located in Dowtown Brooklyn, near the original Junior’s restaurant (which made me very happy!).
When you step in, you walk out of the concrete jungle into a futuristicly hipster hotel…
The front desk in the lobby is circular & has very cool lighting that lights up on the bottom half of the desk. There is mainstream pop/dance music playing, bright lights, & swanky furniture.
Another touch that I felt was good & safe, was the fact that to get to the various floors in the hotel you had to use your hotel key or it would’nt move. There won’t be any predators at the Aloft Brooklyn!!
We stayed in the 2 doubles room… It was very spacious, especially for a new york hotel. Very clean cut and simplistic.
The room was structured similar to the room below, except the photo in the middle was a photo of a New York skyscraper. The only aspect that was somewhat negative was the tv selection. First of all, there was no hotel movie channel. Who doesn’t love to buy movies in hotels? Plus, the channels they had weren’t great, but that’s besides the point…. The hotel is wonderful! 🙂
I would recommend the Aloft to anyone who is looking to stay at a hotel that is not the most typical hotel. Here is the list of Aloft hotel locations:
