Review The ACE Hotel in New york

Walking into Ace hotel new york feels like strolling into a seattle coffee shop: everyone treats you like a regular, and informality is the norm. Ace hotel new york was established as the fourth outpost of this funky, Seattle-based mini-chain started in 1999 by a group of Emerald town natives. The land marked 1904 building, formerly the hotel breadline, has been completely renovated and is now furnished with meticulously curated objects, some actually found at flea markets and others vintage reproductions. many of the building’s original details, including mosaic-tiled floors and offered ceilings in the lobby, are preserved. along with the vintage-inspired furnishings, the hotel commissioned more than 70 artists to create unique artwork for the rooms and public spaces, as well as graffiti sticker art by michael Anderson in the lobby.

The giant lobby, with the breadline Bar tucked in the back, is filled with cozy leather couches, plaid upholstered chairs, and fur throws. By day the atmosphere is a Seattle coffee shop, with rows of bespectacled faces peeking over Apple laptops at the long, library-style tables. By night it’s a hip neighborhood bar, with clusters of guests and new yorker chilling out and sipping cocktails into the wee hours. Some may be delay by the aesthetic or think it’s too contrived. but unlike many downtown boutique hotels, the overall vibe ne’er feels too-cool-for-school exclusionary. Guests are a mix of tourists, locals on staycations, and dedicated brand enthusiasts.

The Ace’s features appeal to both guests and locals. The meat-eccentric breadline Bar & dining space happens to be a favorite (especially among st New York State carnivores), with a cozy English pub-like vibe and hearty dishes. The second on-site dining spot, john dory oyster bar, is equally as popular, with a classy, coastal-influenced bistro feel. 2 huge globe aquariums dedicated to the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans flank the bar, and the menu is driven by English-influenced seafood and, of course, oysters. located on the broadway side of the hotel, No. 7 serves classic submarine sandwiches for on-the-go snacks. twenty-four hour room service is offered. The expansive library-style lobby doubles as a popular laptop-friendly workspace that’s open to the public, and hosts DJ on the weekends. It shares the space with an active, cozy lobby bar hidden up the back. Stump town coffee Roasters cafe, serving good espresso coffee, is located off the lobby. There’s an in-house underground gymnasium. A curated shop off of the lobby sells high end and hip clothes, jewelry, and toiletries. Free wifi is provided throughout.
