From what I remember about the Hotel Gregory since the last time I stayed there the place has gone down hill in a major way. The room looked dingy, smelled of cigarettes, poor lighting, two of lamps didn't work. Had to call maintenance. The two chairs were filthy, mold on the bottom of the shower. The showerhead barely worked. The television remote was not working. The volume button was not functioning. The breakfast was nothing special since most of the goods offered were not available for us all. We were a party of four. Coffee if you can believe was not even available. No fresh brewed or pods to make coffee in the room. Overall, a bad stay altogether. Nest time I'll find another hotel to stay .
Very Clean. Great Staff extremely helpful. Have stayed 2 different times in the past 2 months and would definitely stay with them again. Brooklyn location is very accessible to transportation. Great restaurants in area to try.
I had stayed here when they first opened decades ago and found it to be very nice...even a bit classy. Back then it was just the "Gregory Hotel", now it is part of the Best Western chain so things are a bit different. The hotel had a weird mix of out-of-town visitors and transients (NYC has a policy of placing homeless in hotels for the short-term). Nothing against people who've fallen on hard times but as hotel guest, it seemed like some of them had brought their personal, mental and emotional problems along for the stay. NYPD visited the hotel for two separate incidents while I was there; There was no violence and the police didn't take anyone away in handcuffs but it didn't foster a feeling of being safe. Also, my floor had the distinct scent of weed; this was not offensive to me, but...not really a good thing for a "family friendly" hotel. Decent bed, a few hairs in the sheets but I've seen that in 5-star hotels. Nice bathroom too. No microwave or fridge was kind of a bummer. Overall, it was just okay. If you can get a cheap price and need to stay in Brooklyn for a night or two, it's a good choice because Bay Ridge is a great neighborhood and the train is two blocks away so you can get anywhere you need to go in all five boroughs. If you are planning to stay long-term or if the room price is not on sale, you should probably find a better option.…
We had a hockey tournament in this area and the location was perfect for us. The front desk staff were very friendly and accommodating.The breakfast was perfect for the kids and kept well stocked while a group of teenage boys ate. The room was not as clean as I would have expected. The bathroom floor needs a good sweeping/vacuuming and washing. While others in our group has no complaints my room smelled. It made each entry into the room unpleasant and sleeping difficult. The hotel was full so we could not change rooms.
Staff was very nice and professional. Hotel was clean. Location is excellent for travel in and out of NYC via Subway. The rooms are comfortable. The issue was noise at this location. Walls are thin, hotel guests were arguing and fighting at different times of the day and night. However, more importantly, there is a subway train that runs underground near the hotels foundation, this creates a rumble that starts out softly and increases to shaking point, then decreases. This happens about every 20 to 30 minutes. Woke me up everytime.
