So, there are close to what, 300 hotels in New York, or something like that. And this is just about one of them. The Ace Hotel at 29th and Broadway.

And I somehow even willed myself to the hotel gym. It was small, but, again, had it’s touches that brought a smile to my face. I think that sign on the left could be used in many households throughout the nation.

It’s worth noting that all opinions expressed here are my own, not that of my company, or my client, or the hotel or the puppet master. You know. Oh. I also went to New York to play too. Check out the full story over here.
