Our favourite rooms
We love the sustainable details in all the rooms, including water glasses made of recycled green-glass bottles and untreated-cotton bathrobes; if pressed to pick a favourite, we’d have to go for the Skyline One-Bedroom Suite, which has floods of natural light, Manhattan skyline views and a hammock to lounge on as you take it all in.
From the rooftop plunge pool, you can enjoy sweeping, Manhattan skyline views and even catch a glimpse of Lady Liberty. Family-friendly and unheated, with a shallow three-foot depth, this is a spot for soaking in rather than splashing. This is fair season swimming pool that's only open during the spring and summer. Although it's exclusively for hotel guests in the week, the pool's open to the public at weekends.
A soothing Bamford Haybarn Spa is set to open in autumn 2017; expect holistic treatments that use all-natural ingredients. The state-of-the-art gym has treadmills and a rowing machine; the Field House has stationary bicycles, resistance treadmills, kettlebells and yoga mats.
Bring your walking shoes and a sustainable canvas bag for toting around your Brooklyn finds.

Four-legged Smiths will be treated to all-natural, home-made treats, and a Den dog bed (for every one purchased, another is donated): a smart dog camera that lets you see, talk, and even toss treats to your pup when you're not there. See more pet-friendly hotels in New York.
