Ace Hotel New York is rooted in the city. Like New York, Ace is improvisational — a mix of styles, historical periods and objects that come together in layers. We’re inspired by the past, present and future of the city. A group of seasoned and accomplished, young and emerging local artists create inspired work in our guest rooms and common spaces. Everything has a story.
Ace Hotel reinvents the urban hotel for the people who make cities interesting. We crave experience more than hospitality clichés. We are curious about the history and geography of the buildings we inhabit, and let these guide us to someplace both fresh and familiar.
Ace is the low card and the high card. Our basic rooms are affordable but replete with cool amenities. Our suites offer all the luxury you would expect from a high-end hotel. Our sensibility is democratic and inclusive. We appeal to a broad spectrum of travelers directly, without reducing to the lowest common denominator. Ace is built around collaborations and friendships with local designers, artists and independent businesses.
Ace Hotel New York is improvisational — a mix of styles, historical periods and objects that come together in layers. The hotel’s design takes its cues from the vibrancy of street life, the honesty of materials and the potential of invention. It is about soul, latent in the historic architecture and reintroduced through forward-thinking design.
Formerly the Breslin Hotel, the historic structure that houses Ace Hotel New York has always been full of life. Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Steichen were neighbors; “Diamond Jim” Brady (the inspiration for Marlon Brando’s Guys & Dollscharacter) was a regular; visionary filmmaker, musicologist and painter Harry Smith lived here, too.
