1 Hotel Central Park, the beauty of greenery in the Big Apple
You may think of New York as the home of the Yankees, Tiffany’s, Times Square and Madison Garden. The folks at 1 Hotel Central Park prefer to think of the Big Apple as the home of the biggest city park in the world, and this luxury boutique hotel, situated one block from its namesake, will celebrate the greenery of New York with you throughout your stay. The 1 Hotel group was founded in 2004 with a complete commitment to a strong, eco-friendly concept of luxury experiences. Situated just one short black from the southeastern corner area of Central Park, in the heat of the great Manhattan Midtown District, the 1 Hotel is perfect for explorations of New York’s more organic side, which has surprising strength in the great concrete avenues. The Hotel and staff will be glad to create bespoke introductions to this unique aspect of the Big Apple, and serve as your guide to a brighter and greener New York.
The 1 Hotel Central Park provides its guests with a choice of ten various suites and rooms, all featuring 100 percent recycled furnishings and décor. Some of the wood in the building is reclaimed from the water towers of Old New York. The warming colors of the white oak woods of the hotel are the perfect complement to the greenery of the park outside, and every room features a theme of natural beauty, replete with terrariums, organic linens, and rustic copper fixtures in the cozy baths. Pets and children are welcome at the 1 Hotel. The 1 Hotel is also host to the refined menu of Chef Jonathan Waxman’s Jam, with a focus on fresh, locally derived foodstuffs. Jam is uniquely dedicated to providing in-room dining, which is more of a privilege than a service at many highly-ranked hotels, and the beautiful emphasis on crisp veggies in gourmet dishes will be very welcome if you focus on heavy haute cuisine during your stay.
