It’s no secret that I am pretty much in love with New York City. I take every chance I get to spend a few days in the Big Apple, but usually, never venture very far from Manhattan. When I was presented with the amazing opportunity to spend a weekend at the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge, I was incredibly excited to discover Brooklyn and explore some of the trendiest neighborhoods in NYC. Here are some of the highlights of our weekend at the Marriott, and all the reasons why we loved the hotel.
The New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge truly embodies the spirit of Brooklyn: authentic, chill and effortlessly on trend. The hotel was recently renovated and the whole design inspiration was drawn directly from the borough of Brooklyn itself. The decor features colorful, locally-inspired artwork. The Brooklyn Pantry and The Bar both feature food and drink items from local Brooklyn vendors. Every detail was meticulously thought through to give you a real Brooklyn experience.
The newly renovated Marriott is understated yet sophisticated. The design is sleek and modern with sweeping views of downtown Brooklyn and the Manhattan skyline. I fell in love with the city views… All rooms were redesigned to feature expansive windows, luxurious beds and superior amenities. The hotel also features the exclusive M Club Lounge, which is the perfect spot to relax and recharge, or get some work done during your stay. The Lounge offers fresh drinks and snacks all day, but most importantly unlimited coffee – needless to say, this was one of my favorite parts of the hotel…
The rooms were the highlight of our stay at The New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge. The plush bed and luxury bedding was extra comfy… If it wasn’t for the insane city skyline peeking out the window, I might have snoozed until lunch time. I loved the modern design of the guest rooms: a colorful statement mural, floor to ceiling windows, and statement lamps gave the space a sleek and trendy feel. The wall-mounted flat-screen TV gave us the option to sign in to our own Netflix account, which made us feel right at home. The spa-like bathroom featured premium products, which is a small detail I always notice and appreciate.
We had dinner at The Bar located in the lobby of the hotel. The Bar featured locally inspired craft cocktails, locally produced wines from Red Hook Winery and a curated selection of tasty dishes. Everything we tried was absolutely delicious. The meat and cheese plate was my favorite part of the meal but that usually goes without saying!
We also had breakfast in the M Lounge and sampled an amazing spread of breakfast fares. Fresh fruits, pancakes, pastries, eggs, bacon and breakfast sausages. Total breakfast goals.
We didn’t get the chance to experience it during our stay but the hotel also has a spa, which is perfect to escape the hustle and bustle of the city wand treat yourself to an intimate treatment. The brand new fitness center and the indoor pool are perfect to take a break and recharge.
The hotel is located right across the Brooklyn Bridge from Manhattan. It’s a short walk to the Brooklyn Bridge, and a great base to explore the neighborhoods of DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights. The location is perfect to explore Brooklyn for a weekend, being walking distance to tons of awesome restaurants, shops and places to go out at night. We loved walking along the Promenade which is full of photo spots to capture amazing shots of the NYC skyline and the bridges. A little insider tip: Don’t miss the brownstones on Remsen Street and the cute shops on Montague Street.
