Sustainable Travel Starts with a Stay at NU Hotel

The mere mention of sustainable travel should not conjure feelings of panic, especially when looking for a green hotel option. Hotels are taking the sustainable travel baton and running with it. Long gone are the days when the most a conventional hotel could entertain is biodegradable soap. As sustainable travel nears the realistic goal of becoming the new standard travel, hotels around the world are taking major steps to make your travel a more sustainable travel. If your travels take you to Brooklyn, be sure to stop by the NU Hotel- a true trailblazer in the quest for sustainable lodging.

The NU Hotel opened in July 2008. This environmentally- conscious urban oasis gives travelers a responsible-chic that is hard to come by. It is centrally located in Brooklyn, making urban exploration particularly easy in Downtown Brooklyn, Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, and Carroll Gardens. So whether you want to take a sustainable brewery tour, stop by an urban green space, or visit some of Brooklyn’s beloved boutique shops, the location of the NU Hotel makes these destinations incredibly easy to get to.

You are sure to get lodging options that cater to your needs. This hotel offers a number of personalized arrangements, but one of the most helpful is the room choices. Most hotels offer two full- sized beds or one massive king- sized bed. This may be optimal for traveling couples or groups, but limited bed options are usually somewhat polarizing for the single sustainable traveler. NU Hotel offers lodging packages for twin- sized beds that are hard to find at most hotels. Every room has a personalized decoration as well. Some rooms have a minimalist décor that is suitable for a trendy family or group of friends. And in case you have physical disabilities, the NU Hotel believes in paying accessible rooms as much decorative attention as any other room. Enjoy being able to comfortably reach all objects in style!

The NU Hotel also offers a number of unexpected frills for the business traveler wanting to uphold environmental standards. In addition to design elements specifically placed to awaken creative and productive energies, the NU Hotel also offers rooms with hammocks. Relaxing in a hammock while gazing out on the city of Brooklyn is quite a way to prepare for a meeting! The NU Hotel includes several design elements to make this modern hotel a comfy one, hopefully helping business travelers feel like they are in their home away from home.

The sustainable construction and environmentally- friendly amenities are impressive, but so is NU Hotel’s goal to provide a modern, chic experience that is also comfy, personal, and local at the same time. A trip to Brooklyn will be much better with a stay at NU Hotel.
