Ace Hotel New York is a 12-story hotel in the heart of Midtown Manhattan (click to find some great restaurants on the area). The unique new boutique hotel has 269 rooms and is located near the Theater District.
And it’s just my choice for New Year’s Evening after the great celebration and Times Square and all over the 5th Avenue.
The Hotel have a range of different rooms to suit travelers with different needs, from loft suites with separate living areas to cozy rooms with twin bunkbeds. The guest rooms feature original art by local and international artists and quirky details. No two rooms are quite the same.
The design of interiors was made by New York firm Roman & Williams. Their aesthetic mixes objects, lighting and finishes from different eras to reflect a sense of unconventionality and freedom. While the lobby is layered and historical, the rooms are more efficient. A clothes rack Roman & Williams made from bent plumbing pipes with hanging steel boxes replaces a closet, and references the neighborhood’s fashion-world history. Pipes also appear in the bath accessories and desk legs, showing how stock materials can be re-appropriated to make something elegant but simple, unfussy and ultimately anti-design. Chalkboard paint on the walls and paintings & murals by emerging artists individualize each room.
A Groovy and Country ambiance is part of this amazing room decoration.
Keeping its vintage side, ACE Hotel brings some industrial elements to make this place even more comfortable. Definitively my choice for a great night and a great start of 2013!
