We stayed at the Aloft Brooklyn in mid-june for 4 nights and liked it a lot. It had some minor downsides but I'm sure nearly all these issues can be fixed in the near future.
-Nice and modern rooms, brand new, very spacious by NY standards. They have a big flatscreen TV and fast, reliable and free WiFi in the room and in the lobby. Room safe. 2 PCs in the lobby for those who don't bring their own Laptop.
-Very close to subway to Manhattan/JFK and the nice neighborhoods of brooklyn and the Brooklyn Bridge.
-Very comfortable Bed, the best I ever had in a hotel room.
-Nice and effective staff, good cleaning of the rooms when you follow the rules written in the room (they only change your linen when you want it for example).
-good bar and a pool table in the lobby.
-Possibility to buy some snacks/drinks/coffee in the lobby but it is cheaper to walk a few steps to the deli.
-Location (not fancy, not much to see in the direct neighborhood, could be uncomfortable for some people to walk the area at night)
-The hotel is not really finished, rooftop bar is still a construction site.
-No fridge in room (but coffee maker and free water).
visit the Brooklyn neighboorhoods like Cobble Hill, Park Slope, Dumbo etc. Walk Montague Street to the East river for fantastic views on downtown Manhattan. Visit the Brooklyn Bridge Park and walk over the Bridge to Manhattan.
There are several food options close to the Hotel at the Metro Tech Campus (Starbucks, Metro Café, Five Guys, Bon Pain). The Burrito Shop (Super Taco in Willoughby Street) around the corner of the Hotel is very good.
Montague Street is nice for breakfast and has great views on downtown Manhattan at the end of the street.
