    Loved it

    Great hotel. It's off the beaten path in Greenpoint but if you know your way around it isn't a problem. I was able to find street parking all three days I stayed on the block of the hotel. Room was clean, nice and roomy. I'd recommend it!

    Excellent location for a staycation

    The Box House Hotel as a gem hidden in the Greenpoint area of Brooklyn. They have incorporated exceptional design elements throughout the hotel space. I would definitely stay here again. Loads of restaurant and food choices in the area, also walking distance from Williamsburg and Long Island City with a quick taxi ride into manhattan.

  • 6.0.Good

    first checking in the receptionist was very rude and took forever to check us in . she also mentioned “NO parties , and if you are loud we will kick u out” that was really unnecessary to say to the guest i think . after long day of work and travel that’s not what we want to hear . it wasn’t welcoming vibe at all. i almost felt like she didn’t want us to stay in the hotel at all. it took about 40 min for her to do paperwork and giving us the key card . anyways first thing in the morning i see cockroaches in my towel in the bathroom . i was really shocked . expensive hotel like that has a bug in their towels . i brought the whole towel with the bug on it to the front desk and told the receptionist about it and they say they will bring the new towels for me . i waited about an hour . nobody showed up .when i came back late at night from the event i saw new towels and bed was made but they didn’t take out the trash . it was very disappointing experience. what’s the point for spending a lot of money for romantic night with a bf and get treated so horribly .

    The rooftop bar was more important than the guests

    Upon check in, something that should have taken no time, the front desk clerk had to leave me in the lobby for almost 40 minutes while dealing with a drunk woman who was not even a guest of the hotel. But a patron of the rooftop bar, who said she had given a bottle to a security guard. While we waited we had to essentially stand in a corner (due to social distancing) while these drunk patrons of the rooftop bar flaunted massless faces and fell all over the lobby. I understand that things have to be taken care of but shouldn’t the bar security or manager have been handling that leaving the front desk to deal with paying guests?

    We were there for a wedding during the pandemic and the staff and service was outstanding. The rooms are adorable and very clean. We had a room with a balcony and an amazing skyline view. It's a lovely hotel. We highly recommend it. We had a wonderful stay.

    not up to par

    Customer service could have been a bit more helpful (front desk on check in specifically) Also NO HAND SOAP ON BATHROOM SINK?! Especially during this COVID-19 situation?? I had to go to CVS at night to get hand soap 👎

    The hotel is beautiful, rooms very comfortable and the employees great. Unfortunately the restaurant for breakfast was closed (COVID) so we couldn’t try it. However they have an open terrace that seems marvelous, but we couldn’t get reservations. We could, however order takeout and it was exquisite. Pricey but great.
