Our Story

“I wanted to capture the beauty of nature in a hotel and commit to safeguarding it as best I can, a responsibility that I believe we all share. It's 1 world.

But 1 is more than a hotel - it's a philosophy and a platform for change.”

-Barry Sternlicht, Chairman, Starwood Capital Group

A Platform For Change

1 Vision. The future of the world and the future of hospitality are one and the same. 1 Hotels aspires to be a platform to spark conversations, between innovators and guests, that transform the industry and our lives.

A World That Is 1

Our Sustainability Keystones

The foundation on which we base all our design, construction and operational decisions.


Environmental Impact

Energy binds everything and everyone, but we also need it to keep the lights on. We have implemented a wide range of energy, water, and environmental design strategies to keep our footprint small.

Advocacy, Education & Engagement

We look to spark conversations about the environment and our role in protecting it. We do this through organized volunteer activities and paid volunteer days for our teams, advocacy and educational initiatives like our partnerships with organizations such as the NRDC.

Human Health & Wellbeing

From air and water filtration systems, to biophilic design principles and the use of natural materials throughout our spaces, we place health and wellness at the center of design, construction, facilities and operational decisions.

Resiliency & Ongoing Performance Improvement

We are a platform for change. Sometimes this requires us to put our neck out a little further and try something new, and we encourage our guests to be a part of this change too. Through initiatives like our plastic reduction program and electric car activations, we continue to find ways to evolve.

Food & Beverage Responsibility

We believe that all food should be good, clean and fair; delicious and nutritious food is a right; natural resources should be protected for future generations; people and the environment depend on one another; and the dignity of labor from field to fork should be fought for.

Small Details Lead to Big Change

Bamford was founded on the beliefs that we need to be mindful of our connection to the earth – to live consciously, respect nature’s resources and the land that provides for us – and that what we put on our body is as important as what we put into it.


The Natural Resources Defense Council works to safeguard the earth – its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends.


E2 (Environmental Entrepreneurs) was founded in 2000 on the premise that what’s good for the environment is good for the economy, and that smart environmental policies promote economic growth. 1 Hotels has partnered with E2 to establish The 1 Hotels Fellowship.
