I was quite happy with my stay. The breakfast was the only let down , but there are several places close by, where you can get a breakfast and enjoy the local area. I was here under the New York Marathon , and the course goes just close by, so this is a great location. The area is very interesting and I walked several of the streets in Brooklyn. I went up to the prospect park for my running, as it is quite easy to get from the hotel. It is easy to get into Manhattan, and this hotel is great option for a cheaper stay in New York.
