Overview

Hipster hang out with haute gastropub, buzzy seafood joint, packed lobby bar and stylish vintage vibe

The Lowdown

Your dream vintage store come to life, from original stained glass ceilings and a 1904 tile floor to taxidermy and a photo booth. Even the staff is expertly styled with custom Chuck Ts, Levi’s skinnies, and Surface to Air tie chains. Wall murals, record players with a rotating vinyl collection (in some rooms), vintage furniture and Smeg minifridges stocked with Brooklyn Lager and beef jerky make you feel like you’re crashing at a friend’s pad. The flipside? Like most New York apartments, some of the 275 guest rooms are small. But the Ace is such a local’s hang that it’s easy to forget it’s a hotel. From April Bloomfield’s famous Breslin gastropub and seafood joint The John Dory to the buzzy lobby bar (packed with a mix of freelance creative types checking email and sipping Stumptown coffee during the day and a bespectacled, skinny jean crowd boozing at night) to the downstairs event space (home to DJ nights, movie screenings and celeb parties) to their edgy boutiques, you’ll be lucky if you ever make it back to your room.

In the Area

Most tourists know the hotel’s neighborhood because of Herald Square and Macy’s, but locals know it as Koreatown. Grab some Joo-Mool-Reok at Madangsui and then kick out some karaoke tunes by renting a private room at Gagopa. For a fine-dining splurge, head to chef Daniel Humm’s Atrium restaurant at the flawlessly styled NoMad hotel, a block away. Or stay onsite and score some new duds at the hotel’s outpost of the ultra-hip Opening Ceremony before checking out FIT’s free Museum of Fashion.

ACE Hotel is similar to a Soho House type hotel but in my opinion not as good, although I should state that I've only ever stayed in one Soho House Hotel which is in Berlin and is a great hotel.

ACE Hotel is very well located in Manhattan and within walking distance from wherever I wanted to go. Staff are friendly and always eager to help. It's a hotel designed for the younger guest with great touches and I suspect I was probably twice the age of the average guest. That didn't bother me but because non residents are encouraged or certainly not discouraged from using the lobby as a place of work, it's not a relaxing environment nor I imagine designed to be.

Rooms are small which would certainly put off my wife who suffers mildly from claustrophobia. I appreciated the fact that I wasn't charged for breakfast because a simple request took so long to arrive that my breakfast was soon rendered tepid.

Would I stay here again, probably not simply because there wasn't enough to draw me back but I'm sure there are others who are repeat customers.

Good location

Room was clean with a well stocked fridge of expensive items. A great location: around the corner to the subway stop and only a few blocks to the Empire State building and Penn Station. Simple breakfast is served in the lobby, with a coffee bar right there.

Very good and very different

I checked out this afternoon after six nights on a business trip. This hotel as a hotel is great I love the vibe the service the rooms the design the comfort it all rally very good. I had one of the best beds I have ever had! The combination of old fashion style design with good casual service is great. The restaurant need a stretch I think it can do a lot more. The oyster bar next door is very good and the coffee bar next door is really good (Stumptown).

Despite all the goods a few comments;

1. We checked in last Friday on 2 rooms our flight arrived at like 05:30 am so we got to the hotel at 06:30 am. When you ask for a room earlier than the normal check in schedule they say yes we do have a room unfortunately it’s not the room you book but you can upgrade for an additional this and that. They know that you are tired after along flight, all you want is to take a shower and relax and they take advantage of you. Not nice! On the check out date we specifically asked for a late check out and after a few emails back and fourth we received an email confirming that we can stay until 2 pm on both room despite that a guy came to one of our rooms and asked that we vacate the room immediately. I have file a complaint with the front desk but all I got was “I apologize “
Hotel has a great gym and a great staff and most of all a great location thanks

Super Cool Hotel

I have stayed at the Ace in NYC twice and I love the dark masculine tasteful. Super comfortable bed, great coffee shop and the restaurant and bar are great (the lamb burger is amazing). Staff was friendly, yet not over involved. First time I was there I was upgraded to a bigger room.
