AAA Inspector Notes
This modernly stylish hotel, in the trendy Williamsburg neighborhood, might easily be mistaken for Hollywood or South Beach. The outdoor pool bustles with a great-looking crowd in the summer months. The hotel has a very large saltwater pool, a rooftop lounge with a DJ, and stellar city views. Just one train stop to Manhattan, it has a very fun, outgoing feel permeating the lobby, pool and bars. Oleander's restaurant, attached to the hotel, continues the spirited mood. Smoke free premises. 64 units. 7 stories, interior corridors. Bath: shower only. Accessibility (Call).

Pros:
Cons: Best bed ever. Will ask the management which brand it was because we want to buy one of those. Everything else was great too! Great vibe in the streets nearby!

Pros: The location was perfect for Williamsburg, easy walk to that part of Brooklyn. Room was a respite from the heat wave.
Cons: The hotel is a 'rent a day at the pool' destination, and a 'spend the night on the rooftop bar with our DJ' destination, so not much quiet privacy in those public spaces. Not a hotel for guests to relish in their (expensive) stay. We never went to the pool in the daytime because it was full of idiot Benders drinking and oogling each other, in spite of record heat, and avoided the bar / restaurant for the same reason.

Pros: Really helpfully staff and a lot of eating opportunities close by.
Cons: Apparently there's a bar/club at the 8th floor and even on second floor we could hear the music really loud. When the party wasn't on the top, it was by the pool.
