Pet Friendly New York: Sheraton Brooklyn

Sheraton Brooklyn

Our room at the Sheraton Brooklyn

Finding a reasonably priced pet-friendly hotel in New York is a challenge.  Sure, there are plenty of pet-friendly hotels lining Central Park but we didn’t feel inclined to break the bank for a three-night stay at the Loew’s Fifth Avenue or Four Seasons.  We looked for our usual cheap pet-friendly standbys--- Red Roof Inn or Best Western --- but the Best Western was around $200/night and Red Roof Inn Manhattan does not allow pets.

I found the Sheraton Brooklyn using BringFido.com and booked on their site at a web rate of $145/night for a Club Room, which included breakfast, afternoon cocktails, and unlimited drinks (which probably made up the extra difference in price for us).  Regular rooms ran at $125/night, which is an absolute steal in New York.  The hotel opened in April 2011 and its sister hotel, the Aloft Brooklyn is also pet-friendly and right next door.

Our room


We loved the hotel.  Our room was quite spacious, especially given New York space limitations, with a king-sized bed, a small closet, a big desk/armoire area, and a huge bathroom.  We especially appreciated that the room had a small hallway in it, which we used to keep the dogs’ water and food bowls.  The rooms have excellent sound-proofing and we never heard our neighbors throughout our stay, which is important when staying at a hotel with our dogs, because they tend to bark if they hear lots of noise.

Best of all, we had a fantastic view of the Manhattan skyline, the Brooklyn cruise terminal, and the Statue of Liberty.  We woke up on our last day at the hotel to see the Queen Mary 2 (our cruise ship) docked at the terminal.

The front desk was very kind toward our dogs and the manager even saw us on the elevator one time and spent quite a while discussing pet-friendly areas around the hotel.  When we checked in, they gave us a “Let Sleeping Dogs Lie” tag to place on our door so that housekeeping would not disturb the dogs when we were out of the room.

The only negative part of the hotel is its location in downtown Brooklyn, which doesn’t have many restaurants or green space.  Prospect Park is about 4 miles away and Fort Greene Park is a 20 minute walk from the hotel.  Fortunately, there is a large open area with some grass at the MetroTech Center two blocks away from the hotel.  We usually took the dogs to the small park area two blocks away for short walks and then drove out to Prospect Park or Fort Greene Park for longer walks.  We usually had dinner in the Fort Greene area, which was about a fifteen to twenty minute walk away. Junior’s, famous for its New York cheesecake, is one block from the hotel so we did indulge in cheesecake on several nights.

Because the hotel was not that close to any of the big parks, we found a car to be essential.  Unlike Manhattan, taxis are not frequently available and car services charge an extra $15 per ride if you take dogs, meaning that a taxi ride from the hotel to Prospect Park cost us around $30 one way.  In addition, the subway shuts down in the afternoons on weekends, meaning that we had a really difficult time getting around Brooklyn until we rented a car.  We rented one from Hertz (which allows pets in cars) for $50/day and used that throughout our stay.  Parking at the Sheraton cost around $20/day, and the lot is just around the corner from the hotel.

All in all, we highly recommend the Sheraton Brooklyn as a reasonably-priced pet-friendly New York hotel option and were very pleased with our stay.

Home sweet home! Great views, great review. I completely understand not wanting to blow the whole budget in Manhattan. Stinky that there aren't too many green spaces near there. But, look at that cheesecake!

There are many good pet friendly hotels for pets, which can make them feel happy and enthusiastic as well. Ireland is also one such a destination, which may be perfect for every pet.

Any hotel manager knows that if the room looks wonderful the price for renting it will be higher than a normal. A visitor is willing to pay more for better services and for an improved room. Therefore, for sure the hotel manager will attract the tourists with a few amazing china dinner sets.

Every hotel must offer high quality services to its clients in order to please them and to make them to come back another holiday season. Not only the houses should have superior HVAC systems, but also public institutions or businesses, like this pet-friendly hotel. The manager should take good care of the heating and air conditioning systems and buy the best HVAC parts to replace whenever is necessary because some tourists search for rooms which have these conditions.

You are right, there aren't too many reasonably priced pet-friendly hotels in New York and the existing ones don't always comply with your demands. Given this, the real estate developers should use the CNC turning machines to fix this problem by building more pet friendly accommodations, to cope with the increasing demand for this type of hotels.

There are many aspects that must be considered by those who plan to take their pets on vacation. By far, the most important are the pet friendly restaurants and accommodations. Despite this, it looks like you had a great time. In New York there are many ice cream carts, have you tasted their local flavors? If you haven't, make sure you don't forget next time, they are delicious!

It is good to see that a lot of change has happened in the recent times which made all these possible now. There was a time when pets were strictly not allowed in hotels. I’m glad they gave that stupid rules away. manufactured homes for sale in arizona
