Hotel Description

The Ace Hotel New York, when it first opened, felt like an exercise in minimalism, bringing a vintage/salvage aesthetic and a slightly spartan approach to comforts to a hotel scene that was still obsessed with gloss and glamour. But for their second act, Atelier Ace, the hotel group’s in-house creative agency, has set out to show us what real minimalism looks like. They make it explicit, citing Finnish saunas and Japanese bento boxes as inspirations, which are visible in the interior design — and also John Cage’s silent(ish) composition 4′33″ , whose influence is perhaps more conceptual.

That said, Sister City is quiet, despite the fact that, with entrances on Bowery and Freeman Alley, it could hardly be more auspiciously located. The rooms start out small — bento boxes indeed — but are plenty comfortable, in their austere way. Bigger rooms feature a quartet of bunk beds, perfect for a traveling band, and at the high end you can score a king bed or a terrace with a view of the city.

Given the location, Sister City is under no illusion that it needs to offer a totally self-contained experience — the Lower East Side is well known for its nightlife and its restaurant scene. The hotel’s offerings, however, are more than worthy of the neighborhood, from Floret, the garden-patio restaurant by award-winning chef Joe Ogrodnek, to Last Light, an 11th-floor bar with indoor and outdoor seating. “Less, but Better” is Sister City’s motto, and it’s one we imagine will resonate with more than a few guests.
