We’re really happy to announce that all of the rooms at Ace Hotel New York will, starting today and throughout the summer, have complimentary Google Chromebooks for you to use during your stay. Of course, if you take them home with you we’ll have to charge you a bunch of money and your firstborn child. Chromebooks are compact, lightweight and boot in the blink of an eye, and they store all of your information securely in the browser, so there’s no hard drive storing your passwords or history. You can traverse the mean streets of New York, hole up in your bed, hang out in the lobby or even cram yourself into the photobooth with one — we’ve tucked it safely into a custom slipcover we’re particularly proud of. Even the power cord has it’s own little cozy. There’s another surprise waiting inside the Chromebook, too — we worked with some of our very old friends who run Superfuture to create a special Field Guide so we can share some of our favorite NYC spots with you. You can use it on your Chromebook while you’re here or on any other machine you’re using with a Chrome browser — download it here. And if you’re just stopping by the lobby and want to borrow one while you’re having a drink or a cup of coffee, ask the front desk to sign one out for you.
Virgin America is also running a contest where you can win a trip to NYC, including two nights at Ace New York and a Chromebook for keeps. Enter here and good luck.
