Eco-luxury brand 1 Hotels has opened the 1 West Hollywood. Formerly the Jeremy, the 285-room property has undergone a transformation.

Property owner and operator Starwood Capital Group said the hotel's earthy design is inspired by the beauty and simplicity of raw materials: reclaimed timber and steel, recycled fiber carpeting, abundant native greenery and stonework. The reception desk is crafted from lumber sourced from naturally fallen trees. Los Angeles-based J. Alexander hand-crafted the lobby furniture.

Among the hotel's conservation practices are the inclusion of native and adaptive vegetation, a smart irrigation system that determines when soil needs water, an organic vegetable garden, neighboring beehive and 100-year old olive trees.

1 Kitchen by Chris Crary serves a menu of locally sourced California cuisine with Italian influences. The Juniper Tree bar and lounge serves cocktails, Mediterranean wines, local craft beers and refined bar snacks.

A renovated plunge pool and lounge deck overlooks West Hollywood. The 1 West Hollywood also has 14,000 square feet of flexible event space.
