The McCarren Hotel is a total gem, in the middle of hustling bustling hipster Williamsburg. Just off the main drag of Bedford St, it is opposite its namesake McCarren Park, which is a massive, facility full green space, perfect if you like a morning workout on the running track or a stroll with the squirrels before a day of shopping...

Sara and Gloria both saved the day. They were up with me first thing making great coffee and doing everything to make my morning fantastic. Thanks again ladies! I would have given 5 stars without question, but we weren't informed the night before that we were directly under Da Club. With white noise blasting and ear plugs I was able...

Nice hotel in a very good location. Wish the pool was open past 9pm. Also, for the price of the rooms, breakfast should be complimentary. These didn't impact my experience much - it's overall a very nice place with a friendly and helpful staff and comfy rooms.

I can't say enough good things about this hotel! From the moment we arrived for our bachelorette party everything ran smoothly. I called to order cupcakes to be delivered to the room for the bride and James had everything arranged and set up for us upon our arrival to the hotel. Staff could not have been more friendly and helpful....

Good hotel with imaginative design. The staff team took good care of us. The only issue is that some cabs still refused to give us a ride from Manhattan. Well worth the superb view of Manhattan skyline though.

Lovely hotel in a great part of Brooklyn. Sadly, we didn't experience the cocktails on the roof or the pool (it was December, even if it was unseasonably hot), but we had a great stay nonetheless. Location was perfect – close to bars and eateries.

Although you think you have access to the pool, you really only have access until 11a when they ask all of the guests to get up out of the chairs for their "paying guests" - they threaten to charge your room if you do not get up. I got up at 11a and no one even came until closer to...

The Hotel swimming pool charges over $200 a day dollars to residents. There are bouncers policing the doors into Hotel, the bar and the pool. Only sandwiches and muffins available for breakfast. These details need to be posted on website.

The hotel seems nice at first sight but we stayed there for 6 days and it was awful. First, there is no space in the room, and we were paying for a king bedroom with balcony. The staff is not well trained, eating their sandwiches around the pool or not being able to make a simple coffee. The pool is...

Location is very good. Near to the stations, Bedford and Nassau, it was convenient for our tours around NYC. Also near to shops for daily shopping. Especially, our room was fronted to the Mccaren park. Every mornings was so beautiful!
