Given its proximity to our office, OHNY recently stopped by the Ace Hotel New York, the 12-story hotel in Manhattan’s Flatiron neighborhood, near Madison Square Park.

With 260 rooms, the Ace Hotel New York has a unique, hip(ster) feel, which is in line with their other hotels in Palm Springs, Seattle and Portland. Formerly the Breslin Hotel, the historic property has a rich history and can count Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Steichen as past residents.


The Ace Hotel worked with New York firm Roman & Williams, who designed the hotel’s interiors. Their style mixes modern and vintage, creating an atmosphere that is “a little bohemian and a little sophisticated.” (The same team also designed the interiors of The Standard Hotel.)  The lobby feels like an old school university library, with dark wood, bookshelves and cushioned chairs, but there is also a photo booth and bar in the back.


Featuring a very different aesthetic than most midtown hotels, the Ace has a lived-in, intimate appeal and incorporates history and details from the neighborhood’s Garment District location.

This also extends to their stylish rooms, which include guitars, funky artwork and turntables with a selection of records. The hotel also has free wi-fi, a gym and is pet-friendly.
