Upon first seeing this hotel exterior, we were suitably impressed even though the surrounding area is rather unsavoury. But when we spoke to the rather unhelpful staff through bullet proof glass, we realised we were in for a rather strange adventure for the following 7 nights. From what we could see the hotel has alot of guests coming and going...

Upon River, my room looked pretty good. After the first night, I started to notice. Weird smear of something on the ice bucket that looked pretty fresh. Food stains on the sheets- both so fresh I questioned if I had somehow done that; and old stains that looked like they hadn't come out in the wash. Weird sprays of dirt...

We stayed here for a week when we visited NY, the room was very clean and the bed was comfortable, the en suite was roomy and had a large walk in shower, plenty of hot water. A/C was very good and quiet. We were on the top floor and found it to be fairly quiet, only a bit of noise...

The hotel is very nice for the price. The service was good and the free breakfast in the morning was wonderful. We drove to NYC this time so to find one of the four parking spaces open was very lucky. Hotel is in a very seedy area of Brooklyn but we never felt unsafe. The subway is only a block...

After a long day in NY, checking into your hotel should be the least of your worries. I arrived by train, which is conveniently located around the corner from the hotel. When I tried to check in the night clerk informed me that my card was not being accepted for some unknown reason, I called my bank to confirm there...

I charged a room for my boss. Sumner Hotel debited the cost, THEN decided they needed a copy of the debit card AND my license! With all the identity theft going on, anyone who sends a copy of their license by fax or email should expect problems. After refusing to send a copy, and the hotel already deducting the money...

The room is very clean, I was shocked at the size of the room, it was huge. We had a Jacuzzi tub in the room which was easy to fill and plenty of hot water. There was also a walk in shower. The only thing that was a bit bad was some funky smell in the hallway, The smell does...

An excellent option for people who's only looking for a place to sleep and rest, and the rooms are really good and clean they even offer you a little breakfast to start the day in new York, is just a few yards from the subway station, and in the highest rooms it has a great view of Manhattan from Brooklyn

Absurdly, the hotel required one to purchase water at all times. Even a paid breakfast does not include water. Goes the show the priority of management... Bed is good and room is decent size although the colour scheme is a little morbid.
