The Ace Hotel has become a hub for both locals and international travelers. With striking rooms decorated in the classic Ace brand style, the renowned food of the Breslin, the coffee of Stumptown, and a lobby that has become a virtual town square, it may be the hippest location in NoMad.
Its popularity is partly due to its location at West 29th Street and Broadway, which provides ready access to other parts of town and place it within walking distance of popular tourist attractions, such as the Empire State Building, Herald Square, and Eataly.
The building in which Ace Hotel sits was built in 1904 as the Breslin Hotel. At the time, the Breslin stood in the middle of the theatre district, Alfred Stieglitz’s seminal 291 Gallery was around the corner on Fifth Avenue, and Tin Pan Alley, then at the height of its influence of world music, reigned only a block away. The inspiration behind Marlon Brando’s Guys & Doll’s character, ‘Diamond Jim’ Brady was a regular at the Breslin. The famous photographer of the early 20th century, Jose Maria Mora, always had a room at the hotel.
Today, the Ace’s most famous asset is its library-themed lobby that often has a DJ playing music. With its comfortable and hip environment, the lobby has become a community meeting place that attracts entrepreneurs and freelancers looking for a place to work, write, and meet like-minded people.
