Ace Hotel, New York

The Ace Hotel pays attention to detail. I loved the aesthetic of the Polaroid camera in our room, "You sure would look better pressed" written on our ironing board, and a "Now/ Not Now" magnet for the outside of our door.

Just for fun, we ordered some room service. I do not regret this. Simple, yet perfect, we got Stumptown coffee, fresh orange juice, croissants, and local jam.

The downstairs lounge had a cool laid back feel with a Paxton Gate vibe. As one girl sat at a microphone off to the side of the lounge singing Florence + the Machine's "Shake it Out", we downed some delicious cocktails. One minty, one spicy.

I've now been to two Ace Hotels, (one in Palm Springs) and now I'm thinking I might have to go visit them all.
