The Ace brand is a gay owned design hotel.
A friendly hotel celebrating time-honored classics and creative gumption. Inspired design, unprecedented hospitality and the best bed you'll ever sleep on.
The Ace chain, viewed as hip and urban, was begun by three gay men in 1999. Alex Calderwood, Wade Weigel, and Doug Herrick successfully turned a Seattle halfway house into a destination hotel before opening more properties in Portland, Ore., New York City - Manhattan, Palm Springs and Los Angeles. Many of the hotels are frequented by celebrities, media, and LGBT patrons.
The hip, gay-owned Ace Hotel chain has become very popular for the energetic vibe.
Ace Hotel New York lives in a historic, turn-of-the-century building in Midtown Manhattan, invested with the spirit of its surroundings, the culture of the city and the ancient bones of the building. Ace New York has become a central hub for New Yorkers and international travelers alike, and a hotbed of startups, freelancers and people who just want to kick it.
However bustling the lobby gets, the hotel is a respite from New York's mayhem — full of local art, thoughtful details and the best beds in the universe. We're centrally located, so it’s easy to get to museums, shops, restaurants, theaters, parks, arenas, bars or wherever you may be going by foot, cab, bike, train, bus and chopper.
We also have some of the best dining and shopping right in the building, so even the agoraphobic will find everything they need without ever stepping foot outside. New York, however, is one of our favorite cities in the world, and there's a lot to explore — we can help you discover and navigate in the wild as well.
