Martin Guitars Currently Featured in Select Rooms at Ace Hotel Los Angeles and Ace Hotel London Shoreditch
Nazareth, PA – C. F. Martin & Co. (www.martinguitar.com) has expanded its partnership with Ace Hotel to now include custom guitars in select rooms in its New York City property. Currently, custom Martin guitars are showcased in Ace Hotel rooms of two major cities – Los Angeles and London Shoreditch – providing guests with the unique opportunity to play Martin’s acoustic guitars during their hotel stay. Each guitar has a custom interior label and laser-etched on the body of the guitar is “Your left hand is what you know. Your right hand is who you are.” Since 2012, Martin has also partnered with Ace Hotel New York and expanded in 2013 to Ace Hotel Los Angeles for the 5 AT 5 Series, an intimate 5-song acoustic performance series by touring musicians.
“We are pleased to continue expanding our successful partnership with Ace Hotel to include the New York property,” said Amani Duncan, Vice President of Brand Marketing at Martin Guitar. “We believe that music is a lifestyle and are big fans of the musical concepts and aesthetics that guests can find at Ace Hotel.”
The select guest rooms at Ace Hotel New York were designed to incorporate music into their aesthetic vision. In addition to the custom Martin guitars, rooms include a Rega turntable with a selection of vinyl, a Revo radio with Ace-curated ratio station, among other amenities.
