What was the most significant information you learned while at The 1 Hotel?

There were a lot of things that were significant that I learned on the 1 Hotel tour. The most significant information that I learned was that the hotel reuses a lot of things also known as second life. The decorations on the ceiling were made of mushroom that was molded and baked. Another thing that was reused was the wall decor that was made out of rooftops that were blown on to the floor and an artist created art out of it.

Room Block is a group of hotel rooms that a hotel puts on hold at a special negotiated rate for a group of people. A room block can be set up for a family reunion, a conference, or a wedding. Moreover, a typically room block need to be at least 9 rooms, but although sometimes hotels offer 5 plus rooms.

Turn-down service refers to the practice of staff entering a guest’s room and turning down the bed linen of the bed in the room, preparing the bed for use. 

Something of historic importance is the East River Ferry that tourists can take from Manhattan to Brooklyn. The ferry is inexpensive, and you get a great view of the city from the river.

This eco-friendly handmade papier-mâché ceiling lamp that is made out of mushroom give a sense of expression of hospitality to guests.
