My quiet (non street facing) 4th-floor room had one king bed, a tv, a little fridge with room for the neighborhood's fabulous takeout leftovers, and a long, narrow desktop that the swivel chair could run the length of. The cork floor was clean. The ethernet jack was right by the desk, and there was also wireless; no charge for the internet. A thermostat by the door controlled an AC unit under the window, but mid July was unusually cool, so running the AC made only a minor, but welcome, improvement. For a New York hotel room, it was amply large.
The tv did not work, so I phoned the desk and they sent an engineer up within minutes. It was a battle on three fronts, but in the end he achieved both picture and sound.
The front desk staff suggested a stroll around the neighborhood and across the Brooklyn Bridge. I also walked up and down Atlantic Avenue and Fulton Street. I found a neat laundromat with drop-off laundry service, and plenty of food options. The informal eater eats like a king in that neighborhood.
I never had to stand in line behind more than one person at the front desk. There were no surprises among the charges.
The area and the hotel also have rough edges.More
