Perfect Brooklyn location and staff Nicky and Martin very helpful, ask reception for a car instead of booking an uber. It's cheaper and it's better service. The pool is closed during February which was a bit of a bummer since pool is in the name. Beds are super comfortable and room is very clean.

This hotel is outdated, but it's being renovated. I hated the shower, it's open and has half a door, which let's in all the cold. The desk area was broken and dirty. The staff is amazing and was super nice to my teenage son.

I travel for work nearly every week. Staying in mid-town is hardly what I call relaxing; Cramp rooms, noisy, and uncaring staff. I have stayed at the McCarren over 10x this past year. The rates are normally affordable, but it is the staff that makes the stay so welcoming. Deyana and Martin always recognize me and greet me by name....

We booked this hotel at the last minute as a treat and were very pleased. The rate we received was reasonable for NYC. The room was the typical size of a city hotel--which means it was cozy. The bathroom was pretty sizable, although a little awkward (the sink, while nice to look at, was too small to fit two people's...

This is a terrific place to stay while visiting Brooklyn. The location is great - restaurants, bars, movies, shopping, and close to Manhattan. I travel 175 days per year and I will definitely be back to the McCarren....

I've stayed at this hotel numerous times, and have always had a comfortable stay. We had an issue with a burst pipe that led to us moving rooms. Totally a freak thing, nothing the hotel could have done. Their staff was quick to move us to another room and was very courteous (though I don't think we were refunded for...

We stayed here last minute when our anniversary trip flights were cancelled due to snow. When we got married in 2013 we stayed at this property so we decided to revisit. When we arrived, we were treated very nicely and brought up to a king deluxe room. It was nice, bit beginning to show some age. We are dinner at...

Clean comfortable stay with friendly helpful staff. Google maps sent us to the wrong building. It sent is to 108. Wrong time of the year to rate the pool but everything else was nice and pleasant. I'll stay again during my next visit

Stay here if you can grab a deal - but otherwise I would advise spending the money at a different hotel near by. The bed was comfy and the bathroom spacious, but very empty. The TV was of the cheapest brand/quality and incredibly difficult to use- I would say this is a motif throughout the hotel. Big tv, doesn't work...
