The Ace Hotel's No-bunk Bunk Special
The relatively new hippy-chic Ace Hotel New York clearly categorizes its rooms to embrace every traveler (in price/size ascending order): Bunk, Cheap, Small, Medium, Large, Loft. It’s a big tent and everyone is invited -- budget be damned.
Created by Seattle entrepreneur, Alex Calderwood, the Ace infuses a trust-fund-grunge vibe with unique amenities. Many of the rooms have original artwork, DJ turntables (to play good ol' fashioned vinyl!), guitars, and stocked minibars.
While the rock stars can stay in the 700 square-foot Loft Rooms for around $600 or more a night, lowly groupies have significantly less expensive options, whether you're traveling to the city for New York Pride (subject to availability) or just planning a summer visit.
From now until August 31, 2010, The Ace is offering a Starving Artist Package. Use Promo Code “STARVING” when booking on the hotel's site and stay in a Bunk Room for $99 night for the room -- pretty cheap for two people. (It is important to note that full payment is charged at booking time and is non refundable.) They'll even throw in free ramen noodles from the mini bar on your first night.
Grab a friend and bunk it up in a trendy New York City hotel for a very groovy price. Staying in the inexpensive Bunk Room, pictured at left (image courtesy Ace Hotel) -- with your own private bathroom -- still gives you access to the hotel's gym, lobby bar, room service, and free WiFi, as well as its incredibly convenient location near a subway station and within walking distance of loads of fab NYC attractions and neighborhoods.So, experience a sophisticated throwback to your old college days, and enjoy a good, cheap bunk in New York City. And that ain't no bunk.
