A staycation before the new semester seemed ideal, so that's exactly what I did the weekend before classes began. There's a new boutique hotel in New York City, and being an Interior Design student, you know that I couldn't help myself when it came to the aesthetics. I previewed the space before construction was complete and now that it's open, it certainly exceeded my expectations. 1 Hotel Central Park is a completely sustainable hotel, from its walls and linens to its soaps and hangers, everything is made out of recycled or all natural products.
From the moment the doors opened, I was greeted with the fresh smell of wood. I was immediately transported to a refreshing environment, an oasis amongst the nitty gritty of NYC. The staff at 1 Hotel Central Park gave me the warmest welcome I could have asked for. After checking in, I made my way up to the suite where the elevator opened walls were covered with recycled wood from Hurricane Sandy. The room had a king size bed with a perched seat framing a city view. The lights, TV, and phone access was all included in one Nexus device. Crisp linens, recycled hangers, soaps, shampoos, etc. Everything in the space was so well thought out and it truly celebrated sustainable design. Everything had a past life that was made new once more.
Located on 1414 6th Ave, you'll be able to find yourself right by Central Park South, adjacent to the best shopping and some of the best eats in the city. You can book your stay with 1 Hotel here. I really hope to make my way back there soon as well as their location in South Beach, Florida. This hotel was nothing short of extraordinary.
