Any plans for visiting the Big Apple?
One of our close friends pointed me to this hotel. The recently opened ACE hotel on 29th and Broadway.
The hotel is not designed in a cold and minimalistic way, but instead they aim to make you feel at home, entering a warm bath, staying over at a close friend’s place. A atmosphere we at BB can definitely appreciate.The prices seem just as friendly…
The hotel situated in the NoMad area (North of Madison Square Garden) is designed by a local firm: Rowan & Williams. Almost everything is either customized or vintage. Plaid blankets which cover the beds, robes based on vintage boxing jackets, guitar strings, and a forthcoming Ace shoe in collaboration with Converse, to name a few.
