Fair accomondations

After being in the room no longner than a minute, a large roach took a stroll across the room. We coul not wait to leave for home the next day. While there we went to the Rose room at the Lincoln Center to hear an outstanding jazz program.

The Ace Hotel

I had a room that obviously had water damage and was never properly fixed, it smelled musty and my eyes were tearing...as it is Fashion Week the hotel was sold out and I could not change but for $445 this is not good value. To top it off the windows were blacked out and I was afraid to open and see what was being hidden as the Ace is an old building in NYC and who knows what is out there! Too bad as there are some very nice rooms for the same price that my associates were in here...i just got a room that should be taken out of service.

Great hotel, horrible room

Great staff, apparently a very hip lobby (but it was closed due to a private party!), and the worst room I have ever paid for in my life. Great fixtures, but horrible layout and as small as a prison cell. Unbelievably uncomfortable. If all the rooms are like this (#500) I wouldn't recommend this to my worst enemy.

Place for hipsters

Booked Ace NYC on basis of family member's experience of Ace Palm Springs. NYC isn't in same league. Problem is the hotel tries so hard to be a cool hangout for "hipsters", it forgets to be a hotel and paying overnight guests are a low priority. We arrived about 4pm on Friday. Lobby seating was full of people surfing on Macbooks. We just needed somewhere to sit for a coffee and a sandwich, but there was nowhere. The coffee shop was crowded and freezing cold because of people coming in from outside, the sandwich shop is only accessible from the street and has no seating. Took sandwiches back to hotel, but weren't allowed to eat them in the bar/restaurant area, despite the shop being listed as one of the hotel's amenities. The Mini rooms are spartan and tired, with a very strange theme, like a futuristic prison cell with 1960s pine furniture. Bathroom suffered from icy draught from ill-fitting windows, shower and bath tap came on together, outlet was slow, so bath filled with water. Shower was lukewarm, though basin water was hot. The room had a kettle and some random packs of tea, but no coffee, sugar or milk. Positives, most staff were helpful, breakfasts were excellent, beds were comfortable. My recommendation to the hotel would be to create a space exclusive to overnight guests, maybe on an upper floor, where they can sit, get a coffee or other drink and light meals or sandwiches. That alone would have improved my first impression by 100%. And freshen up the decor and furniture in the rooms, it's not like they're cheap.

Ace Hotel

While the hotel was clean and ideally located, it's decor appeals to a much younger demographic than that of my wife and me (mid 50s) as well as my 84 year old mother. Everything in the hotel is dark; the lobby, the corridors (especially), and the room. I think younger people would find it interesting and hip but it is clear that all the "fixtures" in the hotel rooms are made of plumbing piping painted dark grey or black. Staff was friendly but the decor was not our thing.

Kinda Gross

Pros: Nice staff, free internet. Cons: Whole hotels smells like stale cigarettes. Rooms are decorated like cheap college dorm. Carpet & walls are black and seem dirty (due to smell). Location is gross. Hotel is not chic or luxurious or hip at all.

Fun, but didn't really see what all the fuss is about

I was looking forward to staying at a super hip boutique hotel, but I can't say my stay here was notably better than one at a more generic hotel. Our "mini" room was, indeed, very small, but fine. The sink was located in the carpeted main area next to the bed, which I didn't love. The bathroom was small, but nice. For a 4-star hotel, I expected the a/c unit to cool the (small) room much better than it actually did. The free wi-fi and on-site coffee shop were nice amenities, but honestly, did the facts that my room had a vintage fridge and the lobby was always full of people on laptops do anything to enhance my stay? Not really.

Ace Hotel New York

There's a scene in Spinal Tap where one of the characters describes the colour of their album as "none more black". Well, the Ace Hotel could be described as "None More Hipster". This place is so hipster, you'd think it could otherwise only be reproduced in strict laboratory conditions. If you love hipster, you'll love this place. If you hate hipster, you'll love this place, because you can grumble and moan about how much you hate hipsters. None of the staff wear uniforms or anything approaching work place attire so don't try and work out who works there. Along with their casual attire comes their casual, hipster attitude. Don't expect to get a smile out of any of them, they're too cool for that, especially at the Stumptown Coffee Roasters. At least the coffee is very good. The hotel lobby doubles as a bar/nightclub and you'll find blaring music and randoms enjoying themselves at 1AM on just about any night. This is pretty cool except that all of the bar staff except for Natasha are pretty surly, unhappy hipsters. The random patrons (almost none of them are hotel guests) however, tend to be much nicer. The rooms are tiny but perfectly formed - this is New York. They're filled with hipsterness like a bar fridge in a road case, a "screw kit" and the following printed on the bathroom wall: "Want a fresh towel? Leave it in the tub. No tub? Leave it in the shower. No shower? Leave it in the sink. No sink? Leave it on the floor. No floor? Leave." That about sums it up. Location is good, right smack in the middle of Manhattan on the west side with good proximity to Greenwich Village, SOHO as well as the up-town attractions. While I was there, the wifi stopped working for three days which was incredibly inconvenient. Seriously guys, a back-up link to the Internet is essential!

Plan to get a nightcap at least one night at the hotel bar/lobby. It's actually worth it for novelty value if nothing else!
