Positive Reviews

Brooklyn's in the house

Smack dab in the middle of Brooklyn, in the Williamsburg Neighborhood, you'll be ideally located for soaking up the diverse area and all of its cultural, foodie, artsy, nightlife-heavy activities. You're also close to Manhattan and 25 minutes from the Theater District.

Upbeat helpful guest service

When you book a room at the McCarren Hotel & Pool, you can expect not only comfortable lodgings and useful amenities, but a staff that's eager to please. Cheery and knowledgeable, they'll make sure you have everything you need and can find exactly what you're looking for.

Fun even if you stay put

With a sizeable outdoor pool, a poolside bar featuring drinks and snacks (both seasonal), a delicious restaurant featuring hip local cuisine, and a fitness center, the hotel is perfect for a staycation in New York City or as a supplement to your journeys across the Big Apple.

Negative Reviews

No in-room morning pick-me-up

Some guests have noted a distinct lack of coffee and tea making facilities in the rooms, as well as a lack of coffee facilities at the hotel. However, if you're desperate for a hot beverage, the in-room dining option likely has coffee, or you could stop into Oleanders Restaurant for a steaming cup of joe.

Very active pool while in season

A number of guests mentioned that the hotel pool, which is open only during the warmer months, doesn't just have swimming accommodations, but a bit of a scene. While a pool social club could be fun, it also means the pool is often very active, especially on the weekends, which could make it difficult to simply use it as a pool.

Pricey accommodations and dining

Although the McCarren Hotel & Pool is a great escape for tourists, hipsters, and even people from the area, it's also not exactly a budget accommodation. Located in the heart of the city, many guests have noted that, even with great food and charming yet small rooms, the rates and dinner prices can add up quickly.
