During my first stay in Brooklyn, I wasn’t sure what to expect from The Hilton Brooklyn New York, but I was pleased to find, on my Wednesday night arrival, the hotel is located in a central location, close to many restaurants and neighborhood attractions, and on a street that was quiet the majority of the time, only really picking up in traffic, both car and pedestrian, as people left for work on weekday mornings.
The front desk staff was helpful and friendly when I checked in, and I was quickly headed up to my room on the fourth floor.
The hallways are tastefully decorated in what resembles a naval theme, with lighting outside each door similar to what you might imagine in a submarine and a rope pattern crisscrossing the plush carpet.
In the guestrooms, definitely spacious by New York City standards, the theme gives way to a more classy vintage feel, with black, white and mahogany hues, with accent walls featuring a toile print.
My king guestroom offered plenty of space, with extra seating, including an armchair with footrest and a desk area. A large window opened onto the street below. The bathroom, with its walk-in shower and large vanity, gave me plenty of space to easily get ready in a hurry during this business trip. The room also boasted a large number of outlets for charging my devices, even handier considering my husband, working remotely with his various tech, tagged along for the trip. Both of us had no problem finding room for our phones, laptops and tablets.
The hotel’s on-site dining includes Black Walnut, an American restaurant with gastropub fare and a room service menu. During my stay, I opted to eat at the stylish lobby bar, with its quiet atmosphere and quick service. The smashed potato skins (red potatoes with sage, parmesan and house-made ranch) are well worth the calories and I could eat far more than a normal serving, especially if I’m enjoying one of the expertly made cocktails from the bar.
During my stay, I found the hotel’s location great for a first-timer exploring Brooklyn. I had easy access to Barclays Center, Brooklyn Bridge and New York Transit Museum.
If you’re looking for a convenient leisure or business stay, with luxury touches and a great location, The Hilton Brooklyn New York delivers.
