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.
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.
Chewy looking at the Statue of Liberty from our window
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.
