What are Carrie Brownstein's favorite hotels?
It really depends on the budget. When you’re traveling for music, it depends on the size of the tour. Sometimes you’re staying in a Holiday Inn Express, which I have to say is a pretty good budget hotel chain. My favorite hotel is the Ace Hotel. There’s one in Seattle, Portland, New York, Palm Springs. The Ace Hotel in New York is beautiful. There’s a great cheap hotel in Chicago called Longman & Eagle. I think when you can find something that is well considered and has warm aesthetics, [it’s good]. It’s really nice to stay somewhere that has some character to it. I also don’t mind an older feel that’s not too contemporary. I’m not too picky, but cleanliness is really important.
