The first Ace Hotel was founded in Seattle in 1999 as an affordable hotel that would appeal to the creative class and provide a personalized, local and authentic travel experience for its guests. Today there are nine Ace Hotels around the world and these founding ideals serve as a common thread connecting properties with very distinct personalities. The style and furnishing of each Ace Hotel property is designed to reflect its location, with an eye towards reimagining historically challenging properties in emerging locations through localized and handmade culture. In each location, Ace Hotel partners with local restaurants and retailers to create public spaces and offerings that serve as a microcosm of the neighbourhood as a whole. All of the hotels are created to be places of community and are known for their extensive cultural programming and collaborations with cultural establishments, as well as emerging voices in design, music and the arts.
Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles
makes its home in the historic United Artists building in Downtown LA. Built in 1927 for the maverick film studio, the ornate theatre and the 14-story Spanish Gothic office tower that fronts it have been lovingly retrofitted into a modern hotel - enlivening the building's historical soul with the meticulous attention to detail that Ace is known for and standing as a spiritual anchor at the heart of the Broadway Theatre District's vibrant modern renaissance. The Theatre at Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles is Ace's loving re-animation of the historic United Artists Theater, which stages premieres, major concerts, performances and creative celebrations.
