Manhattan, New York is home to the cool, the trendy and the outright fascinating, and standing pride of place in the fashionable district is Ace Hotel New York – the central hub for the fabulous, the artsy and those in the know.


Museums, shops, markets, restaurants, theatres, parks, arenas and bars are easy to get to by foot, cab, bike, train, bus and pogo stick. Essentially, whatever you’re after, if Ace can’t get it for you they can tell you where nearby you can. If you’re an agoraphobe, fear not, with a trendy fashion boutique, chic bar and Michelin-worthy (note: some of the chefs have Michelin-stars) restaurants, and a bustling lobby where events including live concerts take place, as well as incredible sartorial savvy, interesting and good looking clientele, you’ll never want to leave. That said, the uber-friendly staff are all too happy to recommend where and what to explore in the Big Apple.



Catering to all budgets, the rooms start from bunks with en suite bathrooms and mini bar; mini and small rooms, which offer a full bed, private bathrooms, free internet and minibar; medium rooms, which have the same amenities as the aforementioned but also offer views of Broadway and 29th Street as does the large and double rooms and suites – though, as their name suggests their sizes get grander and the furniture more collector-worthy. The design is so unique – wooden blinds, old school record machine and industrial metal shelves – making Ace feel like a wonderful and eclectic living museum.


There is a small but equipped gym, but we say why hit the treadmill when you can pound the pavements of one of the world’s most exhilarating cities? For men in need of some grooming, a superbly retro barbershop (Rudy’s) is located next door.



One thing New York does well is coffee and Stumptown Coffee Roasters, located at Ace, has to be one of the frontrunners for top baristas. Committed to sourcing, roasting and brewing the best coffees available, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better cup of dark stuff. The city is also renowned for its sandwiches, so if you find yourself on the go, grab a gut-busting sarnie at No. 7 Sub – classic submarine sandwiches at their best.

Seafood lovers will delight in The John Dory, which is famed for its oyster bar and it’s adventurous cocktails. Carnivores, however, should head to The Breslin Bar & Dining Room with a menu full of hearty meat-centric recipes. The menus here specialise in using fresh produce.

For drinks it doesn’t get much cooler than the lobby bar where you will meet an array of fascinating and attractive characters.



Think warehouse chic with exposed brick walls, vintage sofas, cow hind rugs, wooden floors, Smeg fridges (in the suites) and claw-foot bathtubs. Manhattan’s blend of hip and historical is reflected here with pure panache. You couldn’t find a more effortlessly stylish hotel even if you tried.



This is a dog-friendly hotel, so bring your furry friends.
