Ace Hotel Review

The Ace is a dream come true for both penny-pinching hipsters and folks who appreciate unique minimalist decor. Almost everything is white—even the wood floors and brick walls have been painted—making elements like randomly placed tree stumps pop in this gallery-like space. Rooms continue the theme, with such touches as army-surplus blankets, industrial metal sinks, and street art breaking up any notion of austerity. The cheapest rooms share bathrooms, which have enormous showers. Suites are larger and have private bathrooms. A small dining room hosts a Continental breakfast and has a vending machine with unusual items like Japanese snacks and hangover cures. This is a very specific experience and aesthetic: if you're not soothed (or stimulated) by the stripped-down quality of the rooms or not amused by finding a copy of the Kama Sutra where the Bible would be, you may want to stay elsewhere.
