ACE HOTEL // LONDON
This is the first UK outpost of the uber-hip Ace group, which currently has properties in New York, LA, Palm Springs, Seattle, Portland and Panama.
It’s a ‘super’ trendy place to sleep, eat and drink and is a magnet for creative types, with its own self-contained ecosystem of cool places to eat, drink, shop and party.
Rooms have been designed to give the impression of staying in a friend’s Shoreditch apartment and ooze gritty East End vibe meets minimalist Brooklyn aesthetic.
Rooms even come with their own acoustic guitar and wall-mounted pencil sharpeners, ideal for 4am creativity spurts. Guests are an eclectic crowd and the lobby is a permanent hive of activity with latte sipping and laptop tapping.
