This was a nice hotel. It felt roomier than most, because they use their space so efficiently. They really won me over with free water, popcorn, wifi, and a continental breakfast delivered to my room! The staff was very helpful.
We were visiting our daughter in Brooklyn and chose the Hotel Luxe because of the reasonable price and close proximity to her apartment. While the street it was located on was lined with empty buildings and was initially a bit disconcerting, we were comfortable walking the neighborhood during the day and early evening hours. The room was somewhat small but ample and it was clean and updated. The bed was very comfortable. The continental breakfast was simple consisting of bagels, donuts, hot and cold cereal, juice, milk,coffee and apples each day but provided us with a bit of fuel to begin our days. We would stay again, as it suited our purpose.
You can't find a better deal; the room prices are incredible and the rooms are really comfortable. I enjoyed the overhead shower, and I really like this hotel (ironically) but it's almost shocking to enjoy this hotel because the location is horrible. It's about a 4 minute walk to the R/N train about 15 minute train ride to Barclay's and about 30 Minute train ride to Manhattan (not bad when you think about it). It's going to be hard to find any good food or entertainment near the Hotel BPM though so you need to modify your expectations. Also, the staff aren't there to help you...I mean they are "sort of" helpful, but don't expect much for the price you are paying. Here's what you can expect - a very comfortable room that's moderately clean, a great shower, good value priced hotel, and close to the subway.
