Sheraton Brooklyn New York

This past Columbus day weekend, I decided to make a quick trek to NYC.  Open House NY was taking place and I wanted to get an opportunity to visit the TWA flight center at JFK airport.  I originally booked this as a day trip,  but my sister and brother-in-law decided to join me so I decided to change it to an overnight stay.  This was all very last minute and most of the hotels in the manhattan appeared sold-out or super-pricey.  I decided to use 12,000 Starwood Hotel points for a stay at the Sheraton Brooklyn, mostly because it was one of the few hotels accepting reservations for a one night award stay.

Sheraton hotels in the US are usually nice, but not very special.  I usually have good luck with sheratons, but I keep my expectation low.  I was expecting a fairly average hotel stay, however, the somewhat unconventional room upgrade I received resulted in a much better stay than I had expected.

I used a starwood suite upgrade night to improve my chances of getting a good room upgrade.  Having stayed 50+ nights at starwood in the previous year I earned 10 suite upgrade nights, but have had mixed success using them.  In this case the hotel did process the upgrade and I was expecting a junior suite.  Since there would be three of us in the room,  I was glad to have a somewhat larger space.  Before checking-in,  I got a courtesy call from the front desk on my cell-phone, to offer me a choice of the junior suite or two adjoining hotels rooms with a terrace.  I choose the later, which turned out to be a good decision.  Having a terrace and nice weather in new york was great

Although I missed having the living area of a suite,  Have two room with two bathrooms and several (non-sofa) beds was also quite nice.

The hotel rooms themselves were fairly generic Sheraton rooms, but again they were exactly what I wanted and expected.  Also, I found the staff to be very friendly yet professional.  All-in-all a very successful visit with the added bonus of relaxing on large terrace with city views.
