If Acme were a beer, it would be a Pabst Blue Ribbon. While other hotels in this section could be compared to clubs or lounges, Acme is a cool hipster bar, and I mean that in the best possible way. Some hotels have fine art behind the front desk, Acme has graffiti art. Throughout the hotel, which is locally owned, a funky but accessible vibe emanates, from its nightlights—glowing lip prints on the bathroom mirrors—to its chalkboard door fixture, which you can make into your own note, be it “do not disturb” or something less practical. Rooms are all art-splashed, with hardwood floors, a giant handprint on the headboard, and mid-century modern furniture and lamps. Foot for foot, standard rooms are tiny (about 200 sq. ft.), but the hotel has made smart moves, like taking out the closet for extra space and leaving racks exposed, so it somehow doesn’t feel that small at all. For something bigger, there are larger rooms with two queens, and king suites are double the size, with a living room area. The Acme always seems to have something cool up its sleeve, like sponsoring a Baconfest, plus the bar and restaurant, the Berkshire Room, mixes up a good cocktail and feels like a neighborhood watering hole. The basement hot tub room—called Bunny Slope—is straight out of a ski lodge. Bonus: Rates are reasonable, and staff couldn’t be nicer.
