Oh, DUMBO. As mentioned before, this area is in a new design era and this one of the newer additions to the neighbourhood.
While all the hotels offer truly spectacular views (so great that if you’re not staying at any of them, you must at least go have a drink at one of them… or all!), 1 Hotel offers the nearest to the water and view of downtown Manhattan. It’s an instant classic.
The lobby is comfortably spacious with an industrial feel and botanical vibes, with coffee and food on either end of the lobby. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that there’s Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, which I suppose is of some importance if you simply must stay connected to the digital world.
The lobby offers a wonderful space to sit and catch up.
When it comes to hotels in New York, it’s all about the view.
Who am I kidding, the drinks help, too.
