Greenery at 1 Hotel & a Brooklyn Weekend

I love nothing more than a solid New York City weekend – one spent with friends, exploring, music and obviously eating lots of amazing food. I went to the Big Apple this past weekend and did all of that and more. But before I get into our adventures, I have to tell you about the hotel we stayed at. My awesome friend Grace, who has made an appearance on the blog before, invited me to stay with her at a brand new hotel which opened in Brooklyn last week.

Meet 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge:


1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge Lobby


You couldn’t help but feel inspired when entering, as 1 Hotels uses sustainable, recycled, and reclaimed materials in their design. It’s truly a nature-lovers dreams, but anyone can appreciate this stunning building. Our room had a beautiful moss bed (realizing that sounds like the bed was made of moss, see photos below :p) and gorgeous natural light. From the lobby to our room, you really feel as if you’re immersed into nature.

Read more about their story here.

Moss bed…
… actual bed

As we were shown to our rooms, we were greeted by this beautiful, spiritual flower arrangement, which had been created a healer who blessed the hotel the day before.


From the terrace in our room, we had an incredible view of the Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge.

The service was amazing and the staff was incredible (thanks Ramon!)

Our weekend was completed with a walk over the Brooklyn Bridge (naturally) to Manhattan, a stop at Cha Cha Matcha, and a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert at Madison Square Garden with Grace, her mom Karen and her aunt Katie. It was my first time seeing RHCP live AND seeing a show at MSG. Pretty darn ideal.

  1. I was hooked looking at pictures of the hotel but the juice did me in. LOL. I would do the exact same thing. I’m definitely saving this article for later.

  2. Being from NY and not in ATL I can close my eyes and imagine being there too. I love this post and your pictures have a certain feel of freedom in them. Beautiful.

  3. This is beautiful! I will definitely be checking out this hotel, my husband and I visit Brooklyn often and haven’t stayed here yet. Thanks for sharing!
