A Room With A View

2011/03/10 § 6 Comments

In late January, a visiting friend and I had brunch at the Breslin Dining Room of the Ace Hotel and loved the food.  We were also taken by the hotel lobby that looked like a big living room and a library (that turned into a happening spot at night) so we went to the front desk and asked to look at the rooms.  We loved all the rooms and their view.  None  looked alike and each had so much character (hip, vintage, mid-century modern, grunge, guitars, Smeg refrigerators, tartan bed covers).  We thought it would be fun to stay there for a weekend.  We ended up doing so many weeks after originally planned.  Here are some of the beautiful views from the rooms.  Some looked out to lovely water tanks and others to a building that reminded me so much of Paris.  Ours had a wonderful view of the Empire State, which was gorgeous at night but I couldn’t get a good night shot of it.  We had such a wonderful time spending hours at the lobby lounge listening to music, chatting and watching the scene on a Saturday night.  Many drinks, stories and songs after, we retired to our comfy room and feasted on the famous Breslin Burger before calling it a night.  Ah, another weekend filled with fun, food and friendship.  And a spectacular view.  Indeed (as prominently displayed by the hotel doorway) – life delights in life.
