Expert Review

New York’s hippest borough now has plenty of hotels to match its buzzy vibe, but until recently there were few worthwhile options downtown. Aloft New York Brooklyn speaks to the Gen Y-minded crowd who want a combo of high style and high-tech without sky-high prices. So when it opened in June 2011 next door to Starwood’s stodgy Sheraton in downtown Brooklyn, Aloft quickly became a stomping ground for the cool kids in town, who surf their tablets, shoot a game of pool, and grab drinks in the two-story re:mix lobby and lounge. Inside the 176 guestrooms, it’s all about urban-influenced contemporary design – plush platform beds, loft-like nine-foot ceilings, and oversized windows. Aloft does it right by the digital generation; each unit comes with a high-tech office-entertainment center for gadgetry galore. Other fun trimmings include cool in-room magazines like Wired and IN NY, complimentary bottled water, and tea and coffee. At re:fuel, a “grab-and-go” lobby area, you can get sweet, savory and healthy food, snacks and beverages round the clock. Take in 360-degree views of two boroughs to DJ-spun tunes at 24th-floor rooftop Brooklyn Terrace. As another perk, guests get free access to Sheraton’s pool next door.
