“An apt name for this funky hotel!”
Reviewed 20 May 2010

We stayed at The Ace Hotel in May 2010 for 5 nights and LOVED it! We had our two kids with us (5 and 4) and were very pleased with the size of the room (a medium double double), how quiet it was (our room was facing the air shaft), the fantastic internet facilities (Free WiFi) and how friendly and helpful the staff was. Staff were always ready to open doors for us as we pushed strollers through, or hail a cab for us. The cleaners did an impeccable job everyday.

Being designers, the room and hotels quirky and funky aesthetics were perfectly suited to us. Beautiful artwork and intricate designs and decorations in every little nook and cranny. The bar was always buzzing after sundown and the Stumptown Coffee shop (connected to the lobby) was a very convenient stop for a quick yummy breakfast. Also located off the lobby is The Bresin- a restaurant fashioned like a English gastro-pub - wonderful food there too.

Located in Midtown (the Flatiron District), we found subways close by and Times Square to be a short 10minute stroll away. Madison Square Park is also nearby and lots of fun fun for the kids.

The room had an iron, kettle, hair dryer, fridge, TV and guitar! Small bathroom but excellent water pressure and ample toiletries (Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Wash) supplied.

The only thing we missed was a small stash of tea or coffee. The kettle and mugs were provided but a teabag or two or a voucher for the coffee store downstairs would have been brilliant. There are lots of stores near by that will help you stock up though.

I'd love to visit The Ace again- we booked it based on the reviews from this site and were so happy with our choice.

Best prices I have seen in quite a while for a clean and comfortable hotel in NYC. Decor is black and white, sort of post-modern neoindustrial. Not in the middle of anything in particular, but everything in Manhattan is convenient. Annoyances include window shades that don't cut out much light (bring your sleeping mask to sleep in), only one real sitting chair in a good sized room (maybe they don't expect couples to be sitting around the room?), free wi-fi that only worked intermittently, and a hot water pot and cups but no coffee. No fatal flaws, and I would return at the right price.

I love the Ace Hotel. A lot. It reeks of modern sophistication and cool.

Stayed for a week, they upgraded our room upon arrival, even though we booked through a discount site. The room was much more spacious than I anticipated, we were on the 12th floor facing Broadway. Room was fully stocked with high end toilettries, super comfy Wings + Horn robes (which can be purchased at the front desk) and also included a full size SMEG fridge. The bed was very comfortable, the linens soft and the overall design of the room very cool. Interior design of entire hotel done by Roman + Williams. The bathroom was small, which is to be expected in NY. Shower stall with complimentary Rudy's products was great. Flat screen TV has about 30 channels and in room movie rentals.

The hotel staff were friendly and nice, always willing to help. The lobby basically turns into a bar at night, and serves as an overflow for restaurant The Breslin. The lobby is busy and can be noisy but it doesn't carry into the upper floors. Stumptown coffee is incredible, their lattes are delicious. And the fact that Opening Ceremony and Project No. 8 up the hipster factor.

The surrounding neighbourhood is still up and coming, Broadway is a bit less desirable but you can take 5th Avenue North/South to get to where you are going. Subway stops are conveniently located at 28th and Broadway running up and downtown. Super close walk to tourist attractions like Times Square and The Empire State Building (if that's your thing). Close to Washington Square Park (Shake Shack!) and decent shopping in Soho/Noho).

Overall, it was the best hotel experience we have ever had. Will definitely stay at the Ace in NYC again and if given the chance, will stay at their other locations.

Super style-y. Really nice staff. Nice comfy room. Big bathroom by nyc standards. Great room service breakfast. Awesomely comfortable bed. Didn't want to get out of it.

The Breslin restaurant and the bar in the lobby were packed and loud and pricey, but we parked ourselves on a sofa and enjoyed some tasty beers and people-watching.

It's definitely a happening place. Q-Tip was spinning in the basement on our first night there. The carefully curated shop downstairs had a great selection of interesting stuff, from Japanese pencils to german toy blocks to a selection of candies from around the world. Pricey, of course, but well-chosen.

Location is pretty good. Easy to get around.

A new vintage hotel full of trendy youth from around the world. Good place to stay with friends. The lobby turn out to be a local popular bar with extraordinary people. The bar next door serves good food.
Despite the fact that the room was small and has no view, there were lots of cool spoof things like magnits for a maid, refrigerator was hidden into a black case that is basically useing for tthe ech equipment etc.
Good location - Manhattan- very close to Broadway, Macy's, 5th ave.
Not much expensive.

We stayed here for a week during April, 2010. We got a special discount rate; with that and its location we decided to take the chance. The location is not in a tourist area, being in the wholesale/flower district, but we felt safe there.

We were concerned it would be more hostel than hotel. We were pleasantly surprised. The hotel has a point of view, and carries that out in the lobby, check-in, rooms, even the public restrooms. One might describe it as “hip” but this 50-year old couple didn’t feel out of place.

The lobby does get quite loud in the evenings, and the restaurant (The Breslin) was too expensive for our wallets. It gets a bit of a “nightclub” feel, with beautiful 20/30-somethings inhabiting the lobby to standing room only. The noise stays out of the rooms, however. We got such a good rate we saw past it.

The rooms are small (typical of New York), but interestingly appointed. The bed was very comfortable. The TV system was slow to respond to the remote’s commands, an annoyance. The bathroom was nice. A long desk attached to the wall was the only major furniture. One could call the look post-industrial.

Once we got used to the vibe of the place we felt at home. It is one short block away from a subway station, though food is only obtained by walking one long block east or west. It was very convenient to hop on the subway to get where we were going or make a subway connection.

If we every come back to New York we will seriously consider the Ace, and recommend it. Older travelers should consider the vibrant youthful feel the hotel gives though; it might not be for everyone.

This hotel is great and I would definitely consider it for another NYC visit, the room we had was small yet modern, fridge was full of goodies, turn dow service on time everyday!
The location is also great, close to subway and local restaurants + shopping.

The ONLY thing I could think of that I didn't like (and it's not the hotel's fault) is that 29th street could be noisy at ANY time of night.....I happened to treat the noise as "typical NYC sounds" and did not have any problems sleeping.

The bed and shower were out of this world, stumptown coffee downstairs, great bar, this place is worth every penny.
