After a recent report that the entrance to Hotel Bossert was looking shabby, the owners took quick action and now the hotel has a new awning.

The new awning at 98 Montague Street in Brooklyn Heights is a match for the one that was removed earlier this month.

Built in 1909, the hotel is a survivor from the neighborhood’s days as a busy hotel destination spot and social hub. The glamorous hotel hit hard times before being bought in 1988 by the Jehovah’s Witnesses. The religious organization sold the hotel to David Bistricer of Clipper Equity and Joseph Chetrit of the Chetrit Group in 2012, who said they planned to renovate and open a boutique hotel. The opening of the hotel has been delayed several times.
