The Ace hotel in Portland is a stand-out in terms of design and concept, and now Ace is set to move into NYC. Here’s what they have to say about it:

“Ace is the low card and the high card.  Our basic rooms are affordable but replete with cool amenities. Our big suites offer all the luxury you would expect from a high-end hotel. Our sensibility is democratic and inclusive. We appeal to a broad spectrum of travelers, directly, without reducing everything to the lowest common denominator.  The proof is in the common areas, where all these disparate types come together in a social place that is both dynamic and intimate, vibrant and warm.

Ace Hotel New York is improvisational, a mix of styles, historical periods and objects that come together in layers. The hotel¹s design takes its cues from the vibrancy of street life, the honesty of materials and the potential of invention. It is about soul, latent in the old architecture and re-introduced through the new design.”   Thanks, Selectism.
