There's a downtown hotel gift shop war brewing, and Racked NY has the scoop. It's the Ace Hotel vs. the Standard—"Like the Ace Hotel's new Opening Ceremony, the Standard store carries the usual hotel shop amenities alongside trendy tchotchkes from young brands like Wool and the Gang and the cigarette paper company Krink and Bambu. And like the Ace's new No. 8a, it also stocks candy from Papabubble and crazy art objects." [Racked NY]
