Drove up from MA with the boyfriend for just one night, the location was the main reason I chose King & Grove. I didn't want to deal with the hassle of cabs and even though it was freezing out the hotel was perfectly located near some places I wanted to see: Brooklyn Brewery, Output nightclub, Restaurants etc.. all walking distance.
I've been to Manhattan many times and this was my first stay in Brooklyn. I couldn't have been happier. The neighborhood is quiet and perfectly safe. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Upon checking in, I went up to my room which was still being cleaned so I went back down to the lobby and they changed my room without a problem and in fact I was happier with the change because my original room was right by the elevator (which I assumed is what you get when you book with an outside company) and my new room was a little further away from the elevators. Also we were able to check in a little earlier than the 4pm check-in time so that was another plus.
My only complaint was that there was a constant noise coming from the shower. My guess is it must have something to do with the way the pipes run internally. Had I been staying more than one night this would have bugged me but I was able to sleep through it for the most part.
I would definitely like to return again when the weather is warm out. The roof top deck is really neat.
Oh and I thought the bed and pillows were amazing, gotta find out where to get the pillows!
