Bizarre decor and no soap Posted Aug 2, 2015
Since I came in to NYC to attend a reception on 29th Street, Ace Hotel was ideally located. It has a downscale, retro aesthetic that would be perfect if you are a young Raymond Chandler spending down a million dollar advance. You get a desk that is perfect for writing about a murder that takes place in Lower Manhattan, the victim being a character based on Humphrey Bogart or Lauren Becall. Inspiration will be enhanced by the steel doors, garish black and white ALL CAPS notices everywhere and no pen, just a pencil and a complementary sharpener. At the rate charged, I do expect some basics, such as at least one small bar of soap. You get a large bottle each of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash, the last of which smells like hand sanitizer. If you want to use your own toiletries, tough luck, because the only place to put them is the bath tub.
