The folks behind the Ace Hotel took it back to the basics with their new property, Sister City. The 200-room New York hotel was designed around the "Less, but Better" philosophy and as you can see in the photos, that idea has been executed with minimalist interiors and a whole lot of beautifully-finished wood. The wood-filled rooms add warmth to the interiors and features like a modular desk with a built-in TV make efficient use of the space. As for food and drink, the ground floor will be home to Floret, a restaurant with a mix of Mediterranean, East Asian, North African, Australian and Californian flavors and Last Light, a rooftop bar with views of New York City and a menu full of specialty cocktails, wine, and small plates.
Sister City is now open on the Lower East Side at 225 Bowery.
