I just got back from a one-night stay at ACE Hotel. It was my birthday and they went above and beyond the norm to make it a special event for me. When I got to my room, there was an ice cold bucket of a variety of beers waiting for me along with a hand-written note. Wow!
The rooms are downright comfy and funky. THE MOST comfortable beds around. I've stayed at 5 star hotels and prefer the ACE Hotel beds! Great shower, not your typical decor - kind of a mid-century modern camp vibe.
We enjoyed the pool - a wonderful place to hang out ALL day! Drinks & food are delicious. Atmosphere was fun and upbeat - but there is another pool that's more mellow if you don't want loud music.
For dinner, we went with a group of friends to King's Highway and had a superb meal. A special "lounge singer" had a surprise performance for me, along with a delicious birthday pot brownie (brownie IN a pot!) treat.
After dinner we had no desire to leave the hotel so we went to the Amigo Bar. Such a fun underground cave-feel to the bar. Some interesting 90's hip-hop music was playing, which the crowd loved because everyone knew the words and could sing along.
We didn't bring little kids this time, but have on a previous visit. I would bring them again, but be sure to ask for a room that's away from any noise or parties. It's not as quiet as a Hilton, but it's more fun and I think the kids have fun too. Beware: there will be drinking around so if you don't want your kids exposed to drinking and music, try the quieter pool or go earlier in the morning.
Amenities (pool, free bike rentals, Amigo Bar, King's Highway, fire pits, etc etc)
Not right in downtown, but nearby
Not much within VERY close walking distance
Our pool cocktail server was really busy, but I'm sure it wasn't her fault...
