When you travel, you explore, right?  We love seeing experiences through our guest’s eyes, allowing us to look at the cities we’re based in from a totally different perspective.  From hanging out in a lobby with a craft cocktail to finding your inner zen through a Mind & Movement workout, there are a number of ways to fulfill the never-ending itch of wanderlust. 

Starting on August 14th through the 18th, share your 1 Hotels experience on Instagram or Twitter tagging @1hotels, #explore1hotels and #sweepstakes for the chance to win a three-night stay at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge and two super cozy custom robes.  With endless photo opps on South Beach and in Brooklyn and Central Park, we can’t wait to see our cities through a new lens.  And it gets better because for each entry we receive, we’ll donate $1 (up to $1k) to a charitable cause dedicated to helping the world around us!

To help you out, we’ve put together 3 tips to make your pictures speak a thousand words:

 Go for the Unexpected: It’s easy to go for the shot that makes destinations iconic.  Try to seek out the details and everyday life that makes New York City and Miami so special, from the people you cross on the street to the intricacies of how a dish or cocktail is prepared at Jams, the Lobby Bar in Brooklyn, or at Tom on Collins.

 No Filter Required: We love a good filter, but the most natural and real depictions of a time and place don’t require “Valencia” or “X-Pro.” Go for authentic and genuine and preserve the beauty of photography before you could blur out perfect imperfections.

 Angles, Angles, Angles: Work your way around a shot.  Try it from above, below, sideways, up close and even diagonal to add dimension and an artistic spin that beings character to the norm.

Now, you’re ready to #explore1hotels! See the full rules and regulations on Monday, August 14th and start exploring our hotels now.
