Ace Hotel's Lobby: Calling All Drunk Botanists

The afternoon is about to take on a hotel flavor here at Curbed HQ, and it all kicks off with the reveal of the Ace Hotel's still very much shrink-wrapped lobby, via a HotelChatter video. Why a video? "While the darkness still prevails—this hotel's lighting is the worst for taking good photographs—we managed to sink into one of the cracked leather banquettes and absorb the decor, which reminds us of the study and liquor cabinet of an elderly, crotchety Ivy League professor who dabbles in botany as well as mixology." Yeah, what they said. [HotelChatter; previously]
