Service with some...Style

The Ace Hotel New York is one of Manhattan’s newest boutique hotel; sister of the stylish, custom Portland, Palm Springs and Seattle Aces. For the young, cool visitors the hotel boasts Bunk rooms with all grey plaid fabric and street-art walls. For people who have a little more to spend the Loft suites have a boho New York-apartment feel, with bay windows looking down on Broadway, filled with flea market finds. They even have in-room Smeg refrigerators stocked with beer kegs and cheeky treats.

As if the hotel itself wasn't cool enough, their employees also have custom uniforms.

Standard issue footwear is either drab green monochrome Chucks created by Converse exclusively for the Ace or classic black Doc Marten's embossed with a skeleton key. The jeans are by Levi's and Newark-based L. Gambert created custom fitted shirts, handcrafted from patterning to production and overseen by second and third generation family artisans. L. Gambert also created the housekeeping uniform, a utilitarian shirt-dress. The vintage Glen-check Coto tie and blackened silver Surface 2 Air tie chain complete the look.

I thought this was definitely one of the coolest things I've come across in a while. I'm sure this is becoming pretty standard for New York, but I'm sure the rest aren't as dope as these.
