NEW YORK NEW YORK: The lobby of the ACE Hotel

The Lobby of the ACE Hotel.  The lobby of the ACE Hotel in midtown looks more like the New York Public Library than a hotel lobby. As it provides free WiFi, the lobby is packed with the startup crowd working on their computers. The d├ęcor of the boutique hotel was designed by Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch of Roman and Williams  They turned a decrepit landmark 1904 building that formerly housed the Hotel Breslin into a haven of too-cool-for-school bohemian chic.
