Nature lovers visiting New York City can book the earth-conscious 1 Hotel Central Park as a lavish retreat in the middle of bustling Midtown Manhattan. The 5-star hotel merges the posh amenities expected in its upscale neighborhood with the lush flora found just a block away in the country’s most-visited urban green space. Ivy vines climb the weathered wood walls, giving way only for large, industrial-style windows towering looking out over 58th Street. 

The natural theme continues within the hotel’s wooden doors, fashioned from 16,000 fallen branches. Constructed from antique brick, the property’s interior is furnished with living plants, organic cotton and reclaimed barn wood.

Eco-friendly guest rooms come equipped with hemp-filled mattress, cardboard clothes hangers and bathrooms with rainfall showerheads where an egg timer alerts guest that five minutes are up. Amenities in all accommodations include Nespresso coffeemakers, the hotel’s custom bath products and free Wi-Fi. In an effort to go paperless, bedside backboards replace notepads and tablets preloaded with newspapers and magazines are included in each room.

Believing a love of the outdoors begins in childhood, the hotel offers in-room camping expeditions for its youngest visitors with binoculars for stargazing and bird-watching in Central Park, sleeping bags and board games. Furry family members aren't forgotten, instead they are greeted with beds, bowls and treats. 

The floor of the hotel’s 24-hour fitness center started its life in the gymnasium of a local public school. For more exercise, the concierge can arrange in-room yoga mats, classes at nearby gyms or schedule personal trainers.

Chef Jonathan Waxman heads the on-site James restaurant, serving seasonal menus with organic farm-to-table cuisine. In addition to sit-down meals, the kitchen provides a lobby farmstand, picnic baskets for a day in the park and complimentary healthy brown paper bag snacks.

The hotel is a three-minute walk from Carnegie Hall, six minutes from The Museum of Modern Art and 15 minutes from Times Square. To explore more of the city, the in-house Tesla with deliver guests anywhere within a 15 block radius while those looking to sightsee on two wheels can rent bicycles nearby.
