Highs & Lows

  • There's greenery everywhere. Any reminder of nature in this city is welcome, and my stay couldn't be more timely. It shows the potential of conscious and sustainable design in hospitality—something you'll be seeing much more.

  • The proximity and view of Central Park, of course.

  • The greenhouse-inspired shower in the middle of the room is nice to wake up to, and also adds space to the room.

  • All materials used in the hotel were reclaimed or recycle. Environmentalism is sexy.
