Free WiFi throughout and a laundry service. In rooms: TV, app-controlled lighting and temperature, Nespresso coffee machine, minibar, yoga mat.

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.

Poolside

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.

Spa

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.

Pet‐friendly

Four-legged Smiths will be treated to all-natural, home-made treats, a Den dog bed (for every one purchased, another is donated), and use of a Furbo: 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.

Best for

Kids of all ages.

Recommended rooms

The Skyline Two Bed and Dumbo Two Bed rooms are good options for those travelling with young children.

Activities

Brooklyn is great for kids, as it’s away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre; you have Brooklyn Bridge Park at your doorstep and a cinema room in the hotel for rainy days and sleepy evenings.

Swimming pool

The rooftop plunge pool is family-friendly, unheated and three-feet deep throughout.

Meals

At Neighbors cafe, the children’s menu options include grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup and almond butter and jelly sandwiches; both options are accompanied by a choice of a banana or scoop of sorbet.

Babysitting

Babysitting can be arranged with a day’s notice for $35 an hour, plus the cost of transportation, with a four-hour minimum booking.

Also

1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge hosts Seedlings, a nature programme for kids; little ones will be taken on guided nature walks and engage in planting activities.

Eco‐friendly

Extremely: the hotel was designed with sustainability and energy efficiency in mind; it is built to LEED guidelines from 22 per cent recycled materials and 32 per cent regional materials, and has a wind-powered generator, a grey-water irrigation system and a sustainable waste-management system that includes recycling and a food digester. Green cleaning products, LED lighting and Triple Clear water-purification filters are used throughout the hotel; there are living plants or trees and all-natural bath products in all rooms.

Planes

LaGuardia is the closest airport, only 10 miles away (a 40-minute drive, depending on traffic). Flights from all over the world land at JFK, the busiest international airport in the US; the 13-mile drive to the hotel usually takes about 50 minutes.

Trains

1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge can be easily reached from a number of subway stations, including High Street, York Street, Clark Street, Court Street and Borough Hall.

Automobiles

The city has an abundance of taxis and public transportation options, so having a car isn’t really necessary. However, if you do bring your own wheels, the hotel's valet parking is $14 for six hours, or $45 for up to 24 hours (with in-and-out privileges).

Other

The hotel is a five-minute walk from the Dumbo ferry terminal, from which you can hop on East River ferry to Manhattan. The New York Water Taxi also docks at Dumbo’s Pier 1.

Worth getting out of bed for

Keep an eye on the hotel’s film schedule for a cosy night in the screening room, and try to catch the Lobby Farmstand’s monthly tasting event, which features food and drink from local farmers and artisans. Venture outside to stroll along the promenade, down to Jane’s Carousel, a restored 1920’s merry-go-round in a very modern glass house, or over to Brooklyn Bridge Park. Although a bit further south, Brooklyn Botanic Garden is also easily reached and well worth a nature-filled visit. Whiskey-lovers will enjoy a visit to (and a tipple or two at) Kings County Distillery, New York City’s oldest operating whiskey distillery. It would be shame to not take advantage of your bridge-side location and walk or cycle across the Brooklyn Bridge; all that Manhattan has to offer is only a short subway- or ferry-ride away.

Local restaurants

On a cobblestone street just north of Dumbo, farmhouse-feel Vinegar Hill House specialises in homey cooking, as evidenced by its menu of skillet-cooked cornbread, pork chops and skillet-sizzled chicken. Book a table in advance, and request a seat in the cherry tree-filled garden in warmer months. Williamsburg’s Lilia is the place to go for hand-crafted Italian pastas and wine; it’s in high demand, so make your reservations as early as possible. Try their take on cacio e pepe (pasta with cheese and pepper) or the squash-stuffed ravioli with hazelnuts and sage. For modern Thai, head to Samui in a design-dream of a revamped garage in Fort Greene. Order a selection of sharing plates, including blue-potato chive fritters, shrimp and squid pancakes and veggie samosas, or go for full plates of drunken noodles, red curry bamboo or flash-fried chili-lime branzino. 

Local cafés

That metal dining car from the 1920s just under Williamsburg Bridge? That’d be Diner, where waiters scribble the menu on your tablecloth and you can order grass-fed burgers that are a serious contender for the best in New York. It’s first-come, first-serve at this step-back-in-time eatery, so try to snag a seat when it opens at 6pm. Afterwards, hit up Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory for all-natural ice cream with a view. On weekends, snack your way around Smorgasburg at the Brooklyn Flea Market, which hosts an impressive collection of on trend food vendors with a range of temptations for every palate.

Local bars

Cocktail bar Sweet Polly has a jazzy collection of classic and house drinks, accompanied by a raw seafood-focused snack menu. You’ll feel like you’ve wandered south of the border when you enter Gran Electrica; embrace the feeling with a classic margarita eléctrica, mezcal- and maraschino cherry liqueur-based ¡ay mami! or the hot sauce-laced mi michelada. If you require sustenance for your tequila-fuelled evening, order at will from the Mexican street food-inspired menu.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this surprisingly green hotel in Brooklyn and unpacked their locally-baked Butter & Scotch Cookies and Bocce's Bakery Dog Treats, a full account of their eco-conscious city break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge in New York City…

You’ll spot the glass and metal angles of 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge as you make your way across its eponymous, river-spanning structure. Inside this purpose-built stay, there’s a story behind everything: the lift is designed to look like a giant crate, in memory of the neighborhood’s shipping history; the check-in desk is made from New York tornado debris; the corridor from the lobby to the cinema room is covered with a mural to sea life – that’s what you get for letting artists take a concept and run with it.

1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge is obviously committed to its green ethos; signs of energy-efficient design and recycled and reclaimed materials – including a huge wooden table made from the original Coney Island boardwalk – abound. We also love this inspiring stay for its locally-focussed fare, stunning city skyline views, and perfectly low-key borough location.
