The Ace Hotel

Got to give some recognition to The Ace Hotel. Found out about it via a deal with Tablet Hotels, which is a cool service--I guess--that connects with boutique hotels. I recommend it, it's a good way to learn about some off-beat places.

It's in a slightly odd neighborhood, edge of the Garment District I guess, and not a lot of businesses close close by (nearest Starbucks, two blocks! Nearest Duane Reade, more like four blocks!) but it's an awesome location, very central, and in the shadow of the Empire State Building so you can never get lost. A mile or so walkable to Union Square and all that's around there, ditto Times Square in the other direction, and Chelsea to the west. Cool gift shops, crazy noisy and popular bar, and hip coffee place. The street scene is loud, but the rooms are pretty quiet. We had a Large King, very roomy, and nice big bathroom. Plus, FREE WI-FI, and high-quality at that. I'd recommend it.
