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 Chicago
will have sweeping views, open spaces, rooftop spirits and is located in the thriving West Loop art and design scene. Opening September 2017, the hotel was designed by Los Angeles-based studio Commune, who created a space that marries mid-western craftsmanship with utilitarian design. The design is a modern synthesis of functionality, art and design in the spirit of Chicago’s New Bauhaus. The hotel is home to restaurant City Mouse— a partnership with the team from beloved Logan Square restaurant: Giant.
Ace Hotel London
was built in Shoreditch, a historic neighbourhood and global nexus of creative culture, home of the world famous open-air market on Brick Lane, and a canvas for street artists from around the world. Designed by Universal Design Studio, the property incorporates a wide range of design influences — reflective of the cosmopolitan yet historic character of the surroundings — from the clean Modernism of the Bauhaus to UK punk. The lobby includes outposts from various independent local businesses: Hoi Polloi Restaurant from the team behind Bistrotheque, a café by Square Mile Coffee Roasters, the East London Juice Company juice stand, and That Flower Shop by Hattie Fox. The rooftop is home to a variety of public and private event spaces.
Ace Hotel Pittsburgh
in the East Liberty neighbourhood was completely designed in-house by Atelier Ace, revitalizing a historic YMCA building and leaving its shell and many structural elements nearly untouched. Atelier Ace’s vision was to honor Pittsburgh’s multi-generational and multi-cultural roots and history of regional woodcraft and beauty through practicality. A focal point of the hotel is the gym, which is a nod to Pittsburgh’s love of sports and serves as a venue for guests, visitors, performance and experimental works and competitions.
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.
Ace Hotel New Orleans
resides in an historic Art Deco building transformed by interior design firm Roman and Williams in the downtown warehouse district, a stone’s throw from the French Quarter. The hotel’s dining spaces, event venues and 234 guest rooms have been designed with bespoke fixtures from Roman and Williams and local brands and antique vendors to build upon the rich inheritance of the French Art Deco building. In keeping with the city’s character, Ace Hotel New Orleans is home to a music venue, Three Keys, which is also used for events, film screenings and even the occasional burlesque show.
