“Few things are as ‘New York’ as the 1 Hotel’s location at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge. Aside from that, it’s a thoughtfully designed, supremely attractive place to call home for as long you’re a guest here. Plus, it has one of the prettiest farm-to-table restaurants in all of Brooklyn: the Osprey.”
“Rooms at the Murray Hill location all feature private bathrooms, along with free Wi-Fi and an emphasis on communal space typified by the Pod 39’s rooftop lounge. The hotel’s perks are few but if you want hip and affordable, you won’t likely do better.”
“Very few NYC hotels deserve the high price tag they wear. This one just may. Its interior is as grand, though delightfully quirky, with rooms that look like they could have been inhabited by a Gatsby type in the 1920s.”

“This hotel is totally worth the money and is a great deal for a Manhattan hotel. The rooms are high-end in all the right ways (great amenities, quality, linens, and covetable bathroom fixtures) but not at all over-the-top.”
