Stayed there last summer and would highly recommend. They claim to be the only high-end, full-service hotel in Brooklyn.

I remember my stay there quite well. Had Sushi for dinner at the Marquis in Times Square, with a client, and we *walked* back to the Brooklyn Marriott. (Took a few hours).

Thanks for the replies.

One of my wife's dear friends is getting a divorce and is very low right now. They have a mutual friend who lives about 1 mile from the Brookly Bridge so this hotel would be convenient for the party that their Brooklyn friend is having.

However, the remainder of the trip will be spent in Manhattan. Is this property still a good option then? It will be over a three day weekend, I'm concerned about ease to get to hotel from Manhattan.

There is a subway just around the back of the hotel. I took it to Times Square a number of times without a problem. By the way, it is one of the better Marriott's.

In my opinion, its the one of the best Marriott in NYC. Its leagues better than the Marquis and on par with the Eastside.

I agree with all the prior posts. This is a very nice hotel. Staff very accomadating. It is a short wals to the subway for a quick trip into Manhattan.

I stayed there about three weeks after it opened in 1998. It's not in the safest neighborhood (after dark), but I can certainly echo everyone else's positive comments about this property.

Where in Brooklyn do you need to go? The Brooklyn Bridge area is only one area. If you're looking for the Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst, Mill Basin areas you're going to be pretty far away.

As a local resident about 5 blocks away from this hotel, I can say that this is by far the best Marriot. You have a subway station about a block away going into Manhattan. If your in no hurry, you can walk right over the Brooklyn Bridge (great views) and into downtown. There's a large subway stop right over the bridge on the Manhattan side to get you around Manhattan. Neighborhood is fine. Its NYC and there are always a few strange eggs out there..lol. Brooklyn Law School and the Supreme Court are right there.

I remember looking at the top of one of the Supreme Court buildings right across the street from the Marriott and, much to my delight, I spotted a flag pole flying an original Brooklyn Dodger flag!

My wife and her friend will be going to a friend's party about 10-15 blocks away from the Marriott mentioned, so it seems like it will be the one.

Now if I can only get the two to agree if they are taking at two or three day weekend, women!!!
