The 1 Hotel Central Park is one of our favorite in Manhattan. A hotel that combines luxury and respect for the environment.
1 Hotel Central Park is ideally located just steps away from New York’s most famous park. Easily recognizable by its ivy-covered façade, it is the first eco-friendly luxury hotel in Manhattan. Its bio-ecological concept is reflected in its decoration with recycled wood and natural fabrics. The showers are shaped like greenhouses, the hangers are made of recycled paper, a slate replaces the notebook on the night table… In the kitchen, the chef invites you to savor Californian dishes in the JAMS restaurant. Here, fruits and vegetables from local producers are honored and a small farmer’s market takes place every day in the lobby.
Those looking to embrace New York City City’s lavish way of life but with a lasting, eco-friendly mindset should consider a stay at the 1 Hotel Central Park. This 229-room property is LEED certified and features reclaimed barn wood ceiling beams, stay-edge wood block desks, hemp-blend Keetsa bedding and sights of Central Park. But that doesn’t mean you’ll miss out on modern luxuries when you bed down here. Each room comes equipped with a Nespresso coffee maker, a window-enclosed stroll-in shower, free Wi-Fi access and an LCD TV.
This modern-satisfies-green concept extends into the building amenities as well. In addition to the locally sourced California cuisine offered at Jams restaurant (which guests recommend even though menu items are around the pricier side), visitors also have access to a gym and a business area with iPads. And if you’re looking for a bit more action, don’t fret. As a guest of the 1 Hotel Central Park, you’ll have access to the property’s complimentary Audi vehicle service, which will drop you anywhere within a 15-block radius, including some of NYC’s popular tourist attractions like Times Sq ., Radio City Songs Hall and the Museum of Modern Art.
