Ace Hotel NY Preview

We Are the Market had an awesome opportunity to scope out a sample room for the Ace Hotel in New York. Ace Hotels currently has locations in Portland and Seattle, so this next step across the country is something to definitely look out for. I have not had an opportunity to stay at one myself, but a friend of mine frequents the place when up in the Pacific Northwest region of the US. This latest addition to the family will feature some realy cool and “hip” amenities like a turntable and records, some cool looking SMEG refrigerators stocked with some delectable morsels, and other various items to help make your stay memorable. Check the images after the jump.
