Twelve floors towering above the island fit 260 compact hotel rooms. They all feature stylish vintage furniture, and some also boast breathtaking views of Broadway and the famous Empire State Building, the Big Apple’s visiting card.
Designed by Roman & Williams, a New York-based architecture firm, this hotel first opened its doors in 2009 and has since become a destination for international travelers and hipsters from around the world. The unique design is one of the key features of the Ace Hotel. And no wonder, we are talking about New York – one of the most fashionable cities in the world. The hotel lobby tells the story of a building erected at the turn of the century: the designers lovingly saved the fresco of the artist and director Gary Smith, who lived in this house at the time the Breslin Hotel was located here.
The hotel rooms, on the contrary, are decorated in a utilitarian style, and some even look like you are renting an apartment with Amy Winehouse. This is hardly a drawback because the Ace Hotel should not go for luxury at all, but for a relaxed atmosphere (the loud deep-as coming from the hall works just for that, you can be sure). However, all rooms at Ace Hotel are equipped with modern amenities, including a flat-screen TV, iPod docking station, a refrigerator, a fully equipped minibar, bathroom amenities and, of course, the most comfortable beds in the universe.
Another clear advantage of the Ace Hotel is its location. The hotel is literally in the city center, so getting to the city’s main museums, shops, restaurants, theaters, and parks is easy, both on foot and by any means of transport: from a bicycle and a taxi to a helicopter. It’s about New York, isn’t it? Some of the wonderful shops and restaurants are right in the building, so you will find everything you need, without even going outside. New York, however, is one of the most amazing cities in the world, and it’s hardly worth giving up the tour, especially since the hotel staff will easily select the best option for you. Start your acquaintance in the city with Ace Hotel New York – you will not regret it.
