This wind-powered hotel in Brooklyn Bridge Park combines sustainable design with eco-conscious architecture to create a truly unique luxury destination. The hotel interior utilizes reclaimed wood and metal (some taken from the now-defunct Domino Sugar Factory) and plantlife from the area to form an urban oasis in contemporary Brooklyn. Even the rainwater collected by the hotel is used to irrigate the nearby park. Installations from local designers feature in the hotel’s decor, each focused on balancing nature and urban life. The rooftop bar and pool (unfortunately not open to the public) offer views of the city, and guests and locals mingle in a communal seating area. For guests looking for the benefits of nature in an urban setting, Brooklyn has no better option.
The 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge is the ideal mini-break: an easy-to-reach retreat that simultaneously offers insider access to a destination and to a host of hedonistic pleasures and gorgeous spaces to indulge in before reality comes crashing back.
