1 Hotels, A Higher Calling

The hotel world has changed quite a bit over the past couple decades, going from dumpy little boxes with rooms that you would spend as little time as possibly in to beautifully designed oases that you’d want to make your home. The latest edition to the hotel revolution is 1 Hotels. Yes, you’ll find your obligatory reclaimed wood and fresh organic foods, but it seems like 1 Hotels is really drawing a line in the sand and committing to creating a cause (not a brand) that represents something larger than themselves…”A Cause built off a simple idea: the world around us is beautiful and we want to keep it that way.” Currently 1 Hotels has locations at Central Park, NYC and South Beach, with another to be located at Brooklyn Bridge Park.
