The Ace hotel chain may be well on its way to global dominance, but it all started here, at this former flophouse in Belltown. Like its sister properties in Palm Springs, Portland, and New York, the 28 ultrahip rooms at Seattle's Ace exemplify high design on a small budget. Platform beds are covered with vintage French army blankets, institutional stainless-steel sinks are bolted to the wall, and giant photomurals depict Pacific Northwest nature scenes. On the nightstand, you'll find condoms, a copy of the Kama Sutra, and a camouflage-covered Bible. Our favorite rooms are numbers 129 and 130, which have bamboo-filled planters on small decks and a sexy, glass-enclosed shower at the head of the bed.—Updated by Aaron Barker
