Attention to detail is something the Ace Hotel is know for. I love that they go the extra mile to find new uses for old, and interesting things. In this case they don’t just set a bunch of towels on a shelf, something other hotels do. Instead they neatly stack just a few towels in an old steel gym basket. Some might remember these types of wire baskets from high school shops and locker rooms. I remember owning one that held some old Nike’s, a pair of red gym shorts, an old shirt with my last name written in permanent marker on the front, and one unexplainable sock. They slipped in and out of a cubby-style shelf, and could be pad-locked in place to remain closed. Metal baskets are pretty easy to find, and are great for storing almost anything: magazines under a coffee table, shoes gloves or hats at entryways, towels in the restroom, toys on bedroom shelves, fresh food in pantries, or garage storage. And of course, the older they look, the better they look.
