Even though the hustle and bustle of NYFW was in the Soho area, I actually preferred to stay in Midtown, away from it all. It’s away from all the chaos of fashion week, but still centrally located enough to get everywhere! Ever since I had Chloe, traveling hasn’t been easy for me. Getting homesick is something that happens often now when I’m not with my family, so finding a hotel where I feel comfortable and at home in is very important to me. Especially when I’m gone for so long!

Thankfully, my friends at 1 Hotel Central Park hosted us and I honestly can’t think of a better place to call home for fashion week. 1 Hotel worked with local suppliers for their building materials, which let them give some amazing character to a modern, eco-friendly hotel in New York City. They’re known for their hemp sheets, and have live plants everywhere you look. It truly is a refuge in the middle of Manhattan! 1 Hotel actually opened up just 3 months ago, but the minute you see it from the outside, you know it’s something special. After a long and tiring day, the minute we’d get dropped off at our hotel, I would see the greenery covered building, I knew I was home. From the nice and attentive staff to having a doorman named Dior, the white marble bathroom, and the spectacular view of New York outside my window, 1 Hotel was the best home to have during our stay for fashion week. But I fell in love with the grand entrance, which was made with fallen tree branches from Central Park. I love the idea that these fallen branches now have a second chance at life! It just made everything about the hotel even more special because they are eco-friendly, but still incredibly luxurious. I loved the small details the most. All of the wood was recycled and the water was triple filtered! Even the hotel room key was made from recycled paper. Everything from the intricate textures in the lobby to the scent of cedar that greeted you right when you walk into the hotel reminded me of California.

Since we were conveniently next to Central Park, the location gave my team and I a chance to take random walks throughout the day, or just to get a breath of fresh air. I really enjoyed being able to check out of the fashion week scene when I was done for the day. I found myself catching up with e-mails, enjoying my cup of coffee (that espresso machine in our room though!) and getting work done in between shows or facetiming Chloe! 1 Hotel’s atmosphere was very work-friendly, but it also offered a great escape. And in the moments of chaos, it really helped to be able to have such a productive environment for all my needs.

 Oftentimes when people are looking for hotels, it’s easy to dismiss the importance of staying at a more unique hotel. But I think finding a special hotel is very important because it’s going to be your temporary home for the duration of your travel time! Thanks again to 1 Hotel Central Park for hosting my team and I for the perfect NY trip!

    I love hotels that are like this. Growing up in a city, staying at a place with an ‘escape-y’ feel makes another city vacation much more interesting 🙂 🙂 🙂

    A home away from home is an important part in our emotional support system, our human nature tends to connect to our roots no matter where the wind takes us. A beautiful and thoughtful place to stay that partly filled a void in our heart is a place worth coming back to …. 🙂

    Simply a beautiful place. 🙂
