So far, there were 5-star hotels with green concept mainly situated on the Maldives Islands, in African Safari Parks and in the Austrian mountains. In short, in the countryside. With the 1 Hotel Central Park now finally also New York has a Eco-luxury hotel, that combines great design, luxurious amenities and sustainability. Devised has the whole hotel guru Barry Sternlicht, who already created the Starwood Hotel Collection and the stylish W Hotels. His latest mission: combining sustainability and luxury: “I woke up one morning and knew I wanted to evolve other accents in the world,” says Sternlicht.
Like the look exactly is, you can experience in the first Eco-luxury hotel in New York. The facade sets the sound, which is planted to the third floor. Inside natural materials such as brick, marble, glass and oak from the New York region dominates. Many pieces of furniture were produced by local artisans. To save paper, check-in will be handled electronically. Air conditioning and heating work more power efficient.
In this eco-luxury hotel design is also important
Not saved with good design ideas: In the rooms you can make yourself comfortable not only on the bed with hemp mattress, but also on soft upholstered view sofas in the window recess. The showers are like glazed greenhouses in the middle of the room, yet there is enough space to use in the closet staying yoga mat. For those who prefer to go to the gym, the Field House, a fully equipped gym in vintage style and with views of the 58th Street was designed. Preferably the fitness trainers of the hotel will go with their clients to the Central Park. Outdoor is in and the park is finally around the corner.
Also the food in the restaurant Jams is green in the best sense: it´s leaded by the local celebrity chief Jonathan Waxman, it´s cooked with organic ingredients. And so delicious, that you then starts happy in the big city night. On foot, or if necessary, in one of the provided, by the Eco-luxury hotel Tesla electric cars.
