Hotel Le Jolie

Hotel Le Jolie is a Euro-inspired hotel in Williamsburg that offers a few freebies that many other boutique hotels in Brooklyn don’t, like free on-site parking and a complimentary continental breakfast. Comfort is key in these rooms, from beds outfitted with Egyptian cotton sheets and Tempur-pedic mattresses to bathrooms with rainfall shower heads. You’ll also find large flat-screen TVs featuring hundreds of TV and movie channels to choose from. Hotel Le Jolie is a quick walk from Bedford Avenue, where you can find memorable dining and shopping experiences.
The Condor Hotel pens itself as a Williamsburg boutique hotel, but the truth is that it’s technically located in nearby Bedford Stuyvesant (a slightly less desirable Brooklyn neighborhood). Technicalities aside, the Condor still enjoys an excellent location just a quick walk from the Navy Yard and a 10 minute drive from Brooklyn Bridge Park. What’s more, it’s an exceptional place to stay in Brooklyn where guests are treated to an uber-comfortable PlushDreams bed, rainfall shower, deep soaking tub, and free continental breakfast that includes Belgian waffles.
Hotel Le Bleu

Hotel Le Bleu is slightly more removed from frenetic Manhattan, but its Park Slope residence offers plenty to do by way of cafes, bars, and boutiques nearby. This Brooklyn hotel promotes simple elegance, with rooms that feature custom-designed orthopedic beds, modern furnishings, a fully stocked mini bar, rainfall glass shower, and 450-thread count linens. Some guestrooms are blessed with a private outdoor balcony providing views of the Manhattan skyline. All guests are gifted with a complimentary Fresh Start Breakfast basket and newspaper each morning.
Lxure Brooklyn Suites
The Lxure Brooklyn Suites are part of a kosher hotel located in southern Brooklyn in the quiet neighborhood of Borough Park. Though it’s a bit displaced from Manhattan and the more entertaining parts of Brooklyn, the Lxure offers the utmost comfort and luxury in a quiet part of NYC. All suites include heated marble floors, leather sofas, a crystal chandelier, high ceilings, and a complimentary continental breakfast served daily. The Presidential Suite includes a private entrance, outdoor terrace, two bedrooms, and a kitchenette.
NY Moore Hostel

It may not be a hotel, but the NY Moore Hostel still endeavors to provide its budget-minded guests with a boutique experience. This luxury hostel boasts loft-style rooms, both private and dorms, all of which are sun-drenched and spacious with high ceilings. Most of the dorm rooms eschew the typical bunk bed layout and instead provide single beds, each equipped with a bedside table and lamp. A dorm bed typically goes for about $45-50 per night.
The NY Moore Hostel is located in artsy Bushwick, which borders the popular Williamsburg neighborhood and is a mere 15 minute subway ride to Union Square in Manhattan.
