Having just returned from one of my quarterly buying trips to New York City, I’m still swooning over my temporary digs while I was there. I booked a stay at the new 1 Hotel Central Park, located just a block from Central Park. With its ivy-covered facade and extensive use of organic materials, the hotel is an oasis in the middle of a non-stop city. Think hanging plants in the lobby, reclaimed wood floors and a front door made out of 16,000 twigs. It was nothing short of an inspiring stay in this new NYC gem.
