DSC_0173 (1)SH Group announced the opening of a new 1 Hotels property in New York City.  The 1 Hotel Central Park is located at the corner of West 58 Street and 6 Avenue, one block away from Central Park.

The hotel has 229 guestrooms and suites, each with hemp-bended mattresses, furniture made by local craftsmen, terrariums, yoga mats, and water filters in all taps, sinks, and showers.  Bathrooms offer walk-in showers and are designed with natural materials such as mushroom wood, reclaimed brick, marble, and copper fixtures.

The entrance to the hotel is composed of two steel doors embedded with 16,000 twigs, while hallways feature natural items such as acorns and moss.   The building’s exterior has numerous individually potted English Ivy plants.

Guests can schedule personal training sessions in Central Park with the hotel’s partners, Spartan Fitness, and the property offers rides in Tesla electric vehicles to anywhere within a 15-block radius.  The hotel also provides complimentary Wi-Fi Internet, as well as a gift bag upon arrival, filled with seasonal snacks.

For meetings and events, the property has five private rooms that can accommodate groups of up to 130 people, and three of the rooms can be combined to form a 600-square-foot (55-square-meter) venue.

A restaurant, Jams, is also slated to open later this month, and will feature seasonal cuisine.
