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.
How to Get There
My room and the bathroom were super clean. The staff allowed me to check in at 3am because I was running late. Friendly staff who were very accommodating and considerate! This is my new go to hotel when I need to stay in the area!
Hello! I exhausted myself writing a stellar (5 star) review on Expedia, so I'm keeping this short. Ace is my first choice in Manhattan. I do stay at other places, but I prefer Ace because it's close to Subway, coffee downstairs, Breslin, etc. (What happened to John Dory--I liked that place??) But mostly, despite the fact that Ace is labeled as a hipster hotel, everyone is friendly, handle my wants and I love the rooms. Not to mention the Martin guitar. Which helps me get stuff done when I'm in NYC. If I could move in, I would)
The Breslin is always good and there’s great coffee accessible from the lobby. The hotel and rooms really go for a particular brand of tech bro cool, and for the most part they nail that aesthetic if that’s what you’re looking for. Purely as a hotel, it’s a little beat up and uncomfortable, so you’re paying for a medium-range hotel that’s much cooler than something directly comparable.
I've stayed at The Ace Hotel since I started visiting NYC again eight years ago and as ever I had an excellent stay. They were kind enough to upgrade my room to something very special as way of thanks for my loyalty. I appreciated the wine, flowers and note.
Unlike so many other big city hotels they have a genuine regard for their guests. While some mind find it informal, it represents a breathe of fresh air, particularly with big corporate hotel groups taking over the industry.
I'll be sure to stay again the next time I'm in town.
A design hotel at its finest. Beautiful hotel with a look that is completly New York yet welcoming and comfortable. The rooms can be small but if you have every stayed or lived in NYC the rooms can be small...
The lobby the pace and the rooms are everything you could ever want from a NYC hotel and then some
