The 1 Hotels, a refuge in the heart of Manhattan, is a relatively new hotel that launch in the 2nd semester of 2015. And, their new location in DUMBO is the hot spot now!
Even though it’s located in the center of Manhattan, steps away from Central Park, once your inside the hotel, everything become calm and you feel as if you can finally breathe and relax.
The experience starts off with a stunning, rustic, green entrance, where every detail makes you in awe. The furniture are mainly made out of wood and the pillows and details are very unique. You’ll find a small farmer’s market where you can get fresh fruits, vegetables and nuts for snacks. Yum!
The rooms and suites are beautifully done, with gorgeous rustic reclaimed wood (same found through out the hotel), super clean lines and even energizing friendly plants in different spots to make you company.
With fresh farm organic ingredients the restaurant Jams, by Jonathan Waxman is one of the highlights for guests and visitors.
Also, the 2nd floor offers a lounge with drinks to relax from the busy city. It’s also a great place to work, if you need to catch up on some emails.
If you can’t live without exercise, their gym is a great option to start (or finish) your day. You’re surely going to enjoy the natural lighting!
In addition, the 1 Hotels are great for kids with curious, cute amenities like “in-room camping with sleeping bags, binoculars to borrow for stargazing or bird-watching in Central Park, and even games.”
And still, are you a pet person? The 1 Hotels are pet friendly, so ask for your “BarkBox amenity, beds and bowls, and occasional neighborhood “yappy-hour” events”.
Lastly, the hotel offers spaces for networking and social events like meetings, weddings, catering and any type of celebration you’re looking for.
Lastly, being in the heart of Manhattan can be amazing for some people. But, if you’re more a “Brooklyn-type” person, they have another hotel right. It’s beside the Brooklyn Bridge with a priceless view of Manhattan’s skyline.
Plus, they have another hotel in Miami, if you’re ever around.
