Ace Hotel is for Vinyl Lovers

When the original Ace Hotel opened in Seattle, Time described it as “a superaesthetic barrack, with an in-the-know economy of style.” The new Ace Hotel in New York, located in the former Hotel Breslin and set to open in February, fits the same description: turntables in every room, vintage furniture, retro plumbing fixtures. Roman & Williams, the team behind the revamped Royalton Hotel, was in charge of the overhaul. The ambience promises to be achingly hip, with a curated music selection from Other Music at the front desk (guests can purchase CDs and vinyl). Product collaborations include custom Pendleton blankets and a boxing-robe-meets-hooded-sweatshirt by Wings and Horns. The team behind the Spotted Pig is in charge of the restaurant, and Portland-based Stumptown Coffee Roasters is providing the caffeine. On the corner of Broadway and 29th Street; go to Ace Hotel for reservation information.
