NYC - Part I - The Ace Hotel

Spending some much needed time off from work in NYC.  I love this city and wish I had spent more time out here as I've only managed two visits in the last six years.
Great signage
 I decided to stay at The Ace Hotel (20W 29th Street) which is a great boutique hotel in the historic NoMad neighbourhood.  Originally the Breslin Hotel, the interior was re-imagined by the New York firm Roman & Williams.  The rooms and lobby include vintage furniture and lighting and even the smallest details (e.g. the silkscreened bag that holds the blowdryer) help to maintain a consistent industrial chic design with a touch of playfulness.
