About Red Lion Inn and Suites Brooklyn, Brooklyn

This Red Lion Inn and Suites is in Boerum Hill, tucked between the neighborhoods of Cobble Hill and Park Slope. The Fulton Street Mall, a 20-minute walk north, offers 17 blocks of pedestrian-only chain and independent shopping. Prospect Park is a 20-minute walk, too--you can explore ample green spaces, take in live concerts, and let the kids (or the kids at heart) frolic on the playgrounds. This hotel is located just 1 block away from Union Street subway station where you can take the D, N, or R line directly into lower Manhattan and Times Square.

You'll probably want to visit the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, 1.5 miles northwest of the hotel. You can walk across the bridge to Lower Manhattan and enjoy spectacular river and city views along the way. Back on the Brooklyn side, reward yourself with pizza from top-rated Grimaldi's, just a 5-minute walk from the bridge. Or stop by the delightful Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, serving old-school treats on the waterfront.

The hotel's immediate neighborhood has several restaurants, but you won't have to think twice about your morning meal while you're here. A complimentary continental breakfast featuring fresh cinnamon rolls and omelets is offered daily. Traveling for work? Step into the 24-hour business center to put the finishing touches on your presentation--and maybe research a few sightseeing opportunities, too. Guests can enjoy free WiFi and wired Internet access in public areas of the hotel. Limited parking is available on first come first serve basis is available for an extra fee.

In your guestroom, you can use the complimentary wireless Internet access to keep in touch with friends. Or settle back and watch your favorite HBO shows on the flat-screen TV. Weekday mornings, enjoy your coffee while reading the day's headlines--a complimentary newspaper will be delivered right to your door.

No room for my booking
I was told to go to a different hotel two blocks away. No advance notice about the hotel I booked being not able to accommodate my stay. Very strange without any real explaination on why it happened. The hotel I was directed to was even less helpful.

OVERBOOKED OUR ROOM! Nowhere to stay!!!
TERRIBLE!!!!!!! DO NOT STAY HERE! We had booked our double room MONTHS in advance, but when we arrived they were “overbooked”. There wasn’t a single manager on site, the woman at the front desk had only been working there for a week, and she had no idea how to fix the problem. She kept calling her boss on her cell phone to try and get the situation resolved, but the manager wasn’t helpful and refused to speak with us or come in to work to remedy the situation. We asked if there were ANY rooms available, and the desk stated that they were actually NEGATIVE a room, and that one of the rooms was out of order. They called the Holiday Inn Express to see if they could send us to them, and then told us that WE would have to order AND PAY FOR a taxi to another hotel! We asked for a refund, as we WEREN’T going to be staying in the hotel because they had overbooked our room, and the hotel refused. They stated that if we wanted a refund we would have to accept a SINGLE BED room, that they were pretty sure hadn’t been cleaned, and that if we took the dirty room we would only get a 25% refund OF THE FIRST NIGHT! Once the Holiday Inn Express called back, The Red Lion receptionist paid a cab driver OUT OF HER OWN POCKET, because the hotel refused to cover our relocation, to get us to the other hotel.... Where we were put in the very last room they had open, with a door that WOULDN’T LATCH CORRECTLY. Not only was our reservation not honored, our safety was put at risk. Disgusted.

Very Good8.0
Weekend at Red Lion
Did not realize parking was extra,that is not standard procedure at other hotels I had stayed before in that area of Brooklyn.Also unaccostomed to the security charges, but don’t mind providing we do get it back as promised. Did not like the random 33$ charge that appeared on my credit card that I need to call the hotel about,no idea why I was charged that. The bed was super comfortable,as well as the bedding and pillows. Bathroom nice size,clean,and loved the bath products. The coffee in the dining room,available 24/7,was delicious. The food included in the free breakfast the usual boring selections,some muffins or danish would have been appreciated. Area of Brooklyn hotel in has lots of places in walking distance nearby,including subway stop and Barclays Center. Area immediately surrounding hotel a bit shabby with empty lots around,warehouses,and a lot of litter. All the staff at the hotel were most kind,no complaints there.
Joyce, us2 night romance trip
Red Lion Inn and Suites Brooklyn, Brooklyn
I booked 1 first floor room for my sister, husband & myself (avg $225/night x 4 nights), and 2 additional sixth floor rooms for our four sons and 2 of their wives (avg $209/night x 2 nights) to attend our father/grandfather’s wake/funeral. While the rooms are small, but mostly clean, the breakfast selections decent, and (most) staff are great, the location is horrible - filthy, noisy, and dangerous. The door & window in our room were irreparably ajar at the top corner, the only elevator was out of order for over 12 hours one day & again for a little while the next day. The only ATM machine was out of order both times my sister tried to use it. What appeared to be non-guests are allowed to sit out front and roam the inside (especially stairwell), and are constantly being escorted out, arguing and fighting out front. Guests cannot sit out front to smoke without being asked for cigarettes. My oldest son rode down in the elevator with a man blatantly conducting a drug deal via telephone, and my youngest son was approached twice by a man telling him what drugs he was selling. On our last night there we were informed by a reliable source that the hotel is occupied by recently-released, homeless convicts. NEVER AGAIN!
