The concept of 1 Hotels is celebrated by many as the mission-driven luxury lifestyle hotel brand has a unique connection with it’s surrounding environment, making it truly unlike any other hospitality brand out there.

“Confronted with how far Americans were lagging behind in changing our consumption habits, I created 1 Hotels to show sophisticated travelers that they can do good, live well, and connect with both the world and the community around them,” said Barry Sternlicht, 1 Hotels Founder and the Chairman and CEO of Starwood Capital Group. “With the opening of 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, my vision is now realized. We were able to select every material and develop mindfully, yet the space’s main purpose remains to serve, entertain and inspire with some of the best amenities found in the New York hospitality market.”

Third 1 Hotels property found a home at Pier 1, just south of the Brooklyn Bridge in Brooklyn Bridge Park. With incredible views of Manhattan skyline, it’s no wonder this Brooklyn hot spot is on top of every New Yorker and Brooklynite’s bucket list.

The property itself is home to 194 guest rooms, of which include 29 two-to-six bedroom suites and The Riverhouse, its Presidential Suite. Most of the rooms offer panoramic views of the East River, Brooklyn Bridge, and NYC skyline, providing the perfect back drop to your getaway.

Let’s take a closer look at what truly makes this property so unique…

The Riverhouse Suite

The pinnacle of the hotel’s accommodations, the 2,000 square foot Riverhouse Suite is located on the eighth floor of the hotel and features panoramic views of the East River, Brooklyn Bridge and the New York City skyline. The three-bedroom, three bathroom suite completely embodies the hotel’s nature-inspired design aesthetic. The walk-in shower and carved granite soaking tub found in the master bathroom creates an incredible nature-inspired setting to relax and unwind. 

Furnishings created by local Brooklyn artisans and makers are infused with natural elements, showcasing the intrinsic link between the hotel and surrounding community. Reclaimed wood flooring repurposed from an old crow distillery, naked leathers, and hand-loomed textiles have been responsibly sourced and styled with warmth and character.

Sustainable touchpoints are infused throughout the space, such as Triple Clear filtered water and Keetsa mattresses. Green moments, such as a mahogany tree shading a hammock in the corner and a moss wall in the living room, add to the luxe treehouse-inspired décor.

The Riverhouse Suite starts at $5,000/night and is also available to book for events and meetings; we dare you to try and find a better view from a hotel master suite.
