Live like a local at BKLYN House Hotel, a loft-inspired spot with amenities such as free continental breakfast and day passes to the neighborhood’s gyms. Here, local artwork and murals echoing Bushwick’s famous street art adorn the interior, and the 24-hour concierge encourages guests to take advantage of the area’s popular nightlife. As Bushwick’s “first boutique hotel,” BKLYN House places guests ahead of the curve, which is exactly where Brooklynites like to live.
For dialed-in travelers, there’s Bogart Hotel. The 56 rooms here place guests within walking distance of top Brooklyn restaurants, such as Roberta’s and Ichiran, as well as quirky, neighborhood-defining businesses, including vegan bar Pine Rox Box Shop and dine-in movie theater Syndicated. Always at the center of things, the hotel even uses social media to raffle off free night stays for anyone who shares the hotel on Facebook.
Hotel RL Brooklyn balances its minimalist rooms designed with tranquility in mind with a smorgasbord of on-site entertainment. The three-star hotel is home to the performance space Living Stage, a seasonal rooftop lounge, a game-and-movie room, and more. In between activities, guests can choose to donate to Project Wake Up Call, the hotel’s charity for the homeless. Having fun has never felt so good.
Though technically located four blocks outside of Bushwick, the NY Moore Hostel is an ideal base for visitors who want to explore the neighborhood. Guests need only step outside to be immersed in Bushwick’s grungy, DIY culture, as embodied by Moore’s neighbors, thrift store Beacon’s Closet and urban garden-cum-restaurant Roberta’s. Afterward, visitors can relax in serene Williamsburg-inspired rooms complete with high ceilings and natural light.
Providing a Williamsburg stay at a Bushwick price, the Condor Hotel offers the best of two worlds. A high-end environment complete with signature Condor PlushDreams beds, modern meeting rooms, and a manicured garden embodies sleek and upscale Williamsburg, while features like free continental breakfast and a budget-friendly price nod to the more laid-back Bushwick. Guests can thank the Condor’s proximity to the latter (only five blocks away) for its affordable luxury.
