1 Hotel Central Park, a haven of greenery in the middle of the concrete jungle, doesn’t hold back when it comes to bringing the outdoors inside: rooms have terrariums, the entrance doors are made from twigs, the key cards are wood chips, and plants are everywhere. But while the hotel takes its commitment to sustainability seriously, it’s not without a sense of humor: rather than a notepad by the bed, there’s a small chalkboard instead. Luxury has its place, too—the hemp-filled mattresses are made by Keeta and the bathrooms are visions of Breccia Capraia marble and copper. The emphasis on nature is a delightful change from the aesthetic of most urban hotels, and it carries through to Jams, the hotel’s flagship restaurant, which is helmed by Jonathan Waxman, a pioneer in the farm-to-table movement. The dining room feels like a greenhouse, and there’s outdoor seating, natch.
In the Area
The hotel’s Midtown location is close to pretty much everything one could possible want to get to in Manhattan. Within a few minutes’ walk you’ll find the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Just to the east is Serendipity, a New York landmark and the ice cream parlor with what might be the biggest (and most delicious) ice cream sundaes in the world. The biggest lure, though, is Central Park, just steps from the hotel—meaning easy access to the zoo and the Hallett Nature Sanctuary. Fuel up beforehand at everyone’s favorite NYC brunch spot, Sarabeth’s, conveniently located just around the corner.
How to Get There
Liked rooms. Very quiet. BUT breakfast arrangement unacceptable... guests have to compete with public for seating. Some desk people very sassy. Confirmation does not give address so hard for first time visitor to find. Bottom line will not return
Not only are the exterior walls clad with ivy, the interior is filled with reclaimed materials, Moss and all things trendy. There was even a tray filled with apples for guests to help themselves. Really enjoyed our stay.
This pad is not only in a fantastic location but super unique in its style. Run incredibly well with staff that’s super helpful, the bar and restaurant is approachable and high quality and the little touches (like a Tesla car service for no charge that u used!) make it 5 star. Give it a run - you won’t regret!
The room is extremely, small and because of the road work and building extremely noisy! Traffic is not allowed to turn down the street.. Lobby is and the elevators very slow
The mimalist approach in the bedroom room works because there is no room to do. Anything! You even have to position the sliding bath door so you can open the room door to enter and exit.
They don't remove the garbage from the room on a daily basis but do replace towels if you heap them on the floor.
We used them. To. Call for a car to take us at 530am to the airport 178.00 *taxi is 55.00"we want to go to laguardia it took us to jfk.
Lot of better options. In new York that this hotel.
The 1 Hotel Central Park is an excellent place to stay while in New York City. It has a great location only a couple of blocks from Central Park. If you like to walk, this location is great. Your can get to all areas of the City very easily. The staff are all very attuned to help you in any way they can. The rooms are small, as most in the City, but very comfortable and nicely decorated. There is a use of reclaimed products in all areas of this Hotel.
