Let’s be honest: I’m not hip. In fact I’m far from hip, but that shouldn’t stop me from staying at a hip hotel when I travel. I had my bachelor party in NYC last weekend and my friends – who did an amazing job with the planning of the festivities – booked us a room at the new Ace Hotel. It’s pretty much the hippest place I’ve ever been. Our room had an old school refrigerator, a turntable, and a guitar. It also looked like my room at my house so I felt right at home. The hotel is so hip that there’s a line to get in Friday and Saturday nights and Q-Tip from Tribe Called Quest spins records there every Friday night. Oh and the staff wears a uniform made especially for them from uber hip brand Band of Outsiders. I took some pics myself but these professional ones are a lot better. Go figure.
