As a traveling musician, I am on the road 8 months out of the year. I've stayed at more hotels than I am capable of remembering. As an eco-conscious consumer, I try to find lodging that is centered on sustainable building practices, even though it is pretty rare to find. I can say with complete honesty and enthusiasm that my stay at Hotel Skyler was the best lodging experience I have ever had while traveling, and that is saying a lot.
While luxurious, it isn't like mega-hotels that have fountains and grand staircases. The genius of this hotel lies in the way it was constructed. The outer structure is that of an old Synagogue. They kept the entire outer structure intact, and formed the entire interior around the existing structure of the building. This results in rooms that are completely unique from one another in fascinating ways. The lobby decor is elegant and minimal in the best possible way.
I asked for a tour, and the manager showed me around. Carpets, wallpapers, countertops, soaps, showers....pretty much every single thing was made from either recycled materials or in the most sustainable way possible. But the best part that I took away from my experience is that whether or not you are into the whole 'green' thing, no style or substance was sacrificed at all in the decor of the place. The rooms are luxurious, but hip. The beds were unbelievably comfortable too. It was just an incredibly cool place and I can't say enough good things about it!!
