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.
