The Box House Hotel: A Brooklyn Staycation

Friday, April 5, 2019


My boyfriend and I recently had the opportunity to spend a weekend at The Box House Hotel in Greenpoint, a neighborhood we frequent as residents of Long Island City just minutes away. If you ever find yourself passing over the Pulaski Bridge in New York, this hotel is likely the first thing to catch your eye. With a bold black exterior and gorgeous glass-encased rooftop space, The Box House is a standout building among Greenpoint's quiet streets.

The first thing that struck me about our loft suite at the hotel was its size. It was at least double the size of any other New York hotel room I have stayed in and fully equipped with all kitchen necessities, a cozy lounge space, and a bedroom separated by a closet partition. With two TVs and natural light that flooded into the room, it was the perfect space for relaxation all weekend.



The Box House also offers drinks and dining at its colorful on-site restaurant, Brooklyn Lantern. In this vibrant, light-filled space, you can enjoy updated American cuisine along with refreshing cocktails. Our breakfast spread included egg's benedict, a brioche french toast, and the "eggs your way", making for a delicious start to the day. You can't go wrong with the happy hour menu later on either. Whether you're staying at The Box House or not, Brooklyn Lantern is a solid choice for dining should you find yourself exploring Greenpoint. 


Overall we had an absolutely lovely stay at The Box House Hotel because of everything from our cozy room to the dining options, and of course, the location. Greenpoint has always been one of my favorite neighborhoods in New York City for its quiet charm. The hotel is right around the corner from some of my favorite neighborhood spots including Le Fanfare, Glasserie, and Bakeri. There is nothing like waking up on a Sunday morning for a leisurely stroll to grab coffee without the typical urban chaos. Staying in the area made all the difference!


PS. For any reservations at The Box House Hotel between Sunday-Thursday until August 31, 2019, you can use the code "BHHxCL" for 10% off your entire stay! I absolutely recommend it for a relaxing weekend that is in the city, but feels peacefully removed from it.
