Beaux-Arts stunner infiltrates Ace territory. Designer Jacques Garcia looks back to the classic grand hotels of Europe, also nods to his childhood flat in Paris. Rooms avoid the cookie-cutter, strive for apartment vibe. Vintage Heriz rugs, original art individualizes each space. Velvet, leather, and mahogany on the accents. Clawfoot bathtubs and high ceilings reflect building’s circa-1903 origins. Utter scene downstairs.
