"Ace is in central Manhattan" says the Ace Survival Guide, which guests will find in every room. This is just a kind of precise. Broadway and 29th Street is one of the North-Western blocks of Flatiron, a commercial area.
For some critics, the gritty position is a head-scratcher: Despite having solid restaurant options in all directions, and although a jewel-like Madison Square Park is just a few blocks away.
Although the immediate surroundings are lackluster, it's true that the hotel is central to a lot of other big spots - although guests typically want to hop in a subway to get to them. Taxis are easy to find outside the front door, and a block away is the 28 station on the R / W subway line.
Rooms at Ace Hotel are heavy on design. The effect is incredibly cool. The aesthetics from Roman and Williams mixes vintage and modern, honoring this historic building and its New York surroundings while injecting a proper dose of Northwest flavor. The walls feature works of art customized by contemporary artists, making each room different. The intelligent design takes its cue from an industrial building environment. Things such as garment racks are made of repurposed hydraulic pipes fitted with black metal shelves, dark, industrial notes aside, funky elements such as turntables made in Portland, Oregon.
