Ace Hotel has announced its plan to open the Ace Hotel Brooklyn in Boerum Hill, this spring. This is the third project by Roman & Williams for Ace Hotels and channels the industrial patina of old Brooklyn, from the industrial shipyards to the neo-expressionist complexity of Basquiat. Situated among the tree-lined brownstones and indie shops of Boerum Hill, near downtown Brooklyn, the 287-room property is a showcase for the studio’s dedication to handicraft: soaring timbers in the lobby, tile murals in the bathrooms, and a collection of custom furniture with handmade character. Look for the hotel’s debut later this spring.
"We've been building toward Ace Brooklyn for years; the entire city has reimagined itself several times over since we started," Brad Wilson, the president of the Ace Hotel Group, shared. "That's exactly the spirit we've worked to mirror in every corner of our new home — the inexhaustible ingenuity that stands as the borough's only constant. We're lucky enough to have landed at the junction of so many rich and inspiring neighborhoods, and hope to provide a new and inviting sense of place for our guests and neighbors to call home."
Ace Hotel was started in 1999 in Seattle by a group of friends who wanted to build a place for friends to stay that felt authentic, human, and energized by the things they were interested in, including music, art, design and food. It was a place for the touring musicians and artists in their community to have a place to stay that felt like home, where they would feel genuinely cared for. Read more about Ace here.
