Ace Hotel Brooklyn The most beautiful building on the block with a glorious entrance and outdoor meeting space

The most beautiful building on the block with a glorious entrance and outdoor meeting space "The Stoop". An exterior lighting installation, Stan Bitters' modernist ceramic mural, and the most fabulous fire escape like staircase leads you straight to the upper venue and function spaces

Ace Hotel Brooklyn Coffee, pastry and plenty of coworking space with communal tables, outlets and nice people. You know, the essentials for good ideas

Ace Hotel Brooklyn As You Are restaurant and bar! Super fun and buzzy at night, but really, I'm a fan anytime of day. The roasted beets with blueberry and almond will make you rethink your beet ambivalence

Highs & Lows

  • Stellar local programming. The constantly rotating gallery space in the lobby, regular DJ and nightlight programming, plus collabs, events, lectures and workshops with everyone from Textile Arts Center and Pioneer Works, to Cherrybombe magazine and Eater. And for foodie events, they even have a demo kitchen

  • Roman and Williams' warm, cozy and chic detailing never fails to make common areas eclectic and hot-spotty, no matter the location, and the magic here extends upstairs to the creativity of each room and suite

  • Staff. Everyone was the right mix of friendly, aloof, funny and really helpful- exactly what I love in a hotel stay

  • I found myself wishing the coffee bar and bakery stayed open past 2 PM for all day work meetings and that necessary caffeine help

  • This isolated block of Brooklyn has been less inviting than the rest of the neighbourhood, but now you have Ace improving the situation

Important Bits

  • Type

    Lifestyle

  • Vibe

    Hip and local. Coworking by day, cocktail lounge by night

  • Location

    A no-name, industrial stretch of Downtown Brooklyn leads quickly to adjacent Boerum Hill, Fort Greene, Barclay's Center and the central transport hub of Atlantic Terminal

  • Rooms

    287

  • Pre-Arrival Experience

    The always efficient Ace standard

  • Future Forward

    Uses NYC recycling programs. Refill water stations in public spaces and guest floors. JUST WATER in all outlets and minibars. Less plastic building-wide: wooden room keys, cork signage, green guest amenities, no plastic packaging for toiletries, compostable straws upon request, all non-plastic to go containers

  • Music

    The easy, vibey alterna you'd expect from a Brooklyn coffeeshop and lounge. Some rooms come with vinyl curations from Rough Trade. Regular DJs or events at night are a thing

  • Year Opened

    2021

  • Designed By

    Stonehill Taylor (of Moxy, Nomad and TWA Hotel fame) and Roman and Williams

  • Health & Wellness

    The very serviceable gym is a collab with analog, 70's-trophy-room gear and equipment brand, Yeah I Work Out

  • Food

    The restaurant, As You Are, is super solid. Chef Ryan Jordan and Pastry Chef Danny Alvarez partner on a hearty, robust menu that I couldn't put my finger on but nonetheless loved. Mashups of Southern, Middle Eastern, upstate New York and BK influences kept me guessing and happy

  • Bar, Events & Nightlife

    Ace Hotels are all about the programming. Sign up for their ongoing calendar of appearances and events

  • Minibar & Retail

    Full bottles of La Gritonas tequila, Fort Hamilton whiskey and Our Vodka or snuggle with the coffee and East coast local treats, kombucha and Cloud Water. Snagging the custom robes, Pendelton blankets or vintage vinyl from your room is easy enough, but the hotel shop is full of satisfying Ace merch you'll actually use, plus practicalities from Rudy's Barbershop products to Moleskine notebooks

  • Accessibility

    Many of the rooms are ADA accessible, including Medium, Double, and Suite options. ADA pathways and common area seating

  • Pet Friendly

    Dogs under 25 lbs welcome for $25 per dog per stay. Contact them about "anything larger or stranger"

  • Children

    Yes. Rollaway beds not available but cribs are free upon request

  • Price

    All Aces are great mid-tier casual luxe options
