“If You Like Us, Tell Others. If You Don’t, Tell Us.”
We’ve all heard this phrase before. Well, I LOVED the Box House Hotel in Brooklyn, NY. and just had to tell someone about it!
The hotel was located just over the Pulaski Bridge from Queens and is at the northern part of Brooklyn in the Greenpoint neighborhood. Previously a door factory with apartments on the 2nd and 3rd floors, it now houses 45 rooms/suites.
The entrance on Box Street is currently undergoing renovations which I believe is for a new, bigger lobby. There is a small exercise room and coin operated laundry room for the convenience of guests. The lobby hosts a bowl of fresh fruit, water with lemon and two computer stations that guests can utilize. The Box House old style cabs provide complimentary local transportation (within a mile radius). Dunkin Donuts was only a couple of blocks away (which made me very happy)!
The staff were all quick to answer questions, call for cabs and assist with directions. Singh, who seemed to do everything, serving as doorman to driver was quick to greet us with a big smile, helped carry bags to our room, went over all the features of the room, drove us to Pauley Gee’s (a FANTASTIC pizza joint) in the complimentary cab, picked us up when we were done, and even drove us to a spot (both at dusk and later at night) to get some photos of the Manhattan Skyline.
Our room was a one bedroom terrace suite. There was a full kitchen including full size refrigerator, microwave and stovetop. The 200 sq ft terrace had an obstructed city view, but pretty nonetheless. The couch pulled out to a very comfortable bed. The entire suite was tastefully decorated and fully functional for our needs.
Needless to say, I was thrilled with finding this gem of a hotel which will now be our go to place to say when visiting NYC!
