Sightseeing of New York, USA
It is safe to say that Dream Downtown is one of the most unusual and creative hotels in New York. This hotel is open in a futuristic building with unusual round-shaped windows. The opening took place not long ago, in 2011. The project of the unusual 12-storey building was developed by specialists from the Grendel Design Studio. Dream Downtown is not only a hotel open in an eye-catching building as the interiors are no less striking. Light rooms have several windows of different size, and large colorful paintings only add creativity to this place. In halls and guest rooms, the lighting is regulated by numerous sphere-shaped lamps that hang from the ceiling. The lounge on the ground floor of the building comes with silver furniture. The non-standard approach to design is what makes Dream Downtown unique, and so it is hard to find an equally creative hotel.

The thematic Ace Hotel is also one of the most unusual hotels in New York. The boutique hotel is located in the center of Manhattan, so it is very popular with young travelers. At Ace Hotel, guests can choose from a wide variety of individually designed guest rooms. The design of each room is dedicated to a certain theme. For example, book lovers may enjoy staying in the room with the walls decorated with book pages. There is even an interesting room dedicated to the US postal service. In this room, some furniture pieces were replaced with old post cases, and on the walls, guests will find patterns and stamps that copy the design of old envelopes. The design of the hotel was developed by a team of young artists, so Ace Hotel is in line with modern trends. Visitors are welcome to spend an evening in the famous John Dory Oyster Bar or head to the lobby and enjoy relaxing live music.
