Very nice staff! The common areas (not your room) could be cleaner. The breakfast items need to be restocked as the morning progresses. Best pizza joint Cata Bene just up the street. Eight minute walk to the subway. I would stay here again.

We had such an amazing stay at the Plaza Hotel from start to finish! The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating and the room was so quiet and comfortable. I would strongly recommend this hotel for couples or families looking for a quiet getaway after long days of walking in the city. Our room was extremely clean and the beds were way bigger than I expected. Also: really good pillows and linens, and free breakfast every morning + coffee downstairs round the clock. Note: there aren't really any restaurants/bars/shopping/trains within 5 or so blocks - but we used Uber to get from the hotel to the train on days when it was too hot to walk and it was only about $6. In fact, we went to a ton of different neighborhoods in Brooklyn and never spent over $10 on an Uber ride.

"New hotel in Brooklyn - but not quite fully open"
Warm and hospitable staff. They were very helpful. The room was acceptable but a tad small. Hotel's restaurant is not yet open. Their breakfast room is quite attractive, but the selections were limited, and cold only.
The room we were in was an adjoining room to another that was housing a loud group, which the walls did not buffer! The desk staff moved us about 11 p.m. to a street side room that was quiet enough to sleep, with only occasional street sounds penetrating.
I'm by no means a regular NY City visitor but when I have stayed in the past, I have usually stayed in one of the midtown places in Manhattan. This time I was invited to a wedding down in the newly gentrified part of Brooklyn so stayed at the Brooklyn Marriott right at the foot of the Brooklyn bridge.
1. Location was excellent - easy subway access and a short hop by car to LGA.
2. Good rooms - clean and orderly.
3. Noise level was ok - I was on the 5th floor and really didn't hear much street level stuff.
4. Facilities and amenities were as expected - to be totally fair - I wasn't really interested nor used the in-hotel exercise or dining option. There is a Panera and Starbucks around the corner, and several reasonable eateries - the rest of the time we were out at restaurants.
So basically an excellent option.
The landmark Brooklyn Bridge links Manhattan with the city’s most populous borough. Waterfront Brooklyn Heights offers superb views of Lower Manhattan. Renowned for its brownstones and leafy neighborhoods, Brooklyn embodies America’s “melting pot.” Italian, Mexican, Chinese, and Jewish communities add to the cultural mix. Highlights include Coney Island, Prospect Park, and Brooklyn Museum of Art.
