The Ace in Seattle always smells the way I want my life to feel - citrusy and bright. I visit often - this city is just far enough from my own to gain perspective. The hotel is where, in the early 2000's, I first fall in love with white spaces, subway tile and plumbing pipe accents.
This has been my home on countless road trips. Most recently for a weekend with a friend after five years of living too far apart.
