With its cobblestoned streets, warehouse-laden past, and legacy of great artistry, Dumbo (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, for those who don’t speak New Yorker) has remained an intriguing base from which to gaze at the Big Apple. The 1 Hotel brand’s third property (the first to be built from the ground up), an ode to its creative surroundings, makes a thoughtful case for setting up camp on the periphery of Manhattan. You’ll sleep easy knowing the hotel is serious about sustainability, a commitment that surfaces in a myriad of innovative forms. For starters, a majority of the property’s furniture is crafted from refurbished pine, which once belonged to the Coney Island boardwalk. Then there’s an eye-catching sculpture behind the reception desk, remnants of roof shingles that survived a tornado in upstate New York. The kombucha bottles in your minibar (and the farm stand in the lobby) are a reminder that you’re in hipster haven, though you’ll likely be more distracted by a host of dazzling natural-meets-industrial details including green-glass bottles fashioned into water cups in your room and a 25-foot living wall in the airy, light-speckled entrance.
In the Area
You’re just five minutes away from the Dumbo ferry terminal (and over five subway lines), your gateway to Manhattan, but you may not want to leave your scenic surrounds—bustling Pier 1 and the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Other longstanding gems include a restored 1920s merry-go-round in Brooklyn Bridge Park, New York City’s oldest whiskey distillery, and a nearly century-old diner housed in a retro railcar, where the grass-fed burgers remain consistent crowd-pleasers. Also not to miss: a creamy all-natural scoop at the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory drizzled with hot fudge so decadent, it’s inspired many to hike across a certain bridge.
How to Get There
Both the hotel and its location is fantastic. This hotel is so elegant and relaxing, the rooftop is a must! The views from the Rooftop are unreal. the city skyline and Brooklyn bridge are beautifully lit up at night! such a great place!
We went to this hotel's rooftop bar as part of a conference at the hotel. After being directed away from many of the best seats because they were "reserved", we settled into a some seats with a view of Manhattan. It was a hot sunny day and a bottle of rose seemed appropriate. The service was a bit on the sarcastic surly side. However, the rose was good. We ordered chips and guac as a snack. Really amazing views and a nice play to wind down after the business day. I do wish they would improve their servers' treatment of customers though. The rating is for the amazing views, rose and delicious guac (but not the service)
After our stay I noticed a suspicious charge on my credit card and asked several times their customer service for an explanation; never got an answer. This is unacceptable for a high level hotel; just disrespectful
