Ace Hotel Downtown LOS ANGELES



Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles opened early 2014 in the historic United Artists building in Downtown LA. Built in 1927 for the maverick film studio, this ornate, storied and vibrant Los Angeles gem stands as a monument to a group of seminal American artists pushing out on their own, and anchors the Broadway Theater District's modern renaissance. Mary Pickford's love for the ornate detail and stone spires of Spanish castles and cathedrals is manifest at the theater — a true temple of the arts. The mixture of reverent awe and irreverent independence is right up their alley — this is the kind of project they dream of.

Rooms ranges from small rooms, with a queen bed - to the Ace Suite, a 633 square foot room that comes with a king bed, a private kitchenette and large private terrace. It also includes a fully-stocked minibar, flat screen television and a custom Revo Radio. The suite features an Ace x Rega RP1 turntable and acoustic Martin Guitar. All rooms include free internet, Rudy's toiletries and Pearl+ soaps.

The Mezzanine's the place to meet friends, make eyes at a stranger or work on your novel. Want it for yourself? You can rent the Mezzanine for meetings, dinners or lively conversation. 

Ace Hotel partnered with the team behind Brooklyn’s beloved Five Leaves and Nights And Weekends to create L.A. Chapter: a new, carefully cultivated brasserie just off of Ace’s lobby. Rooted in a fresh, thoughtful focus on locally sourced vegetables and seafood, Jud and Ken present their menu from a mostly European angle with subtle nods to the exotic — seamlessly introducing new flavors to familiar ideas. There is no conflict in folding unctuous Sea Urchin in Pasta Noodles or a French Dip/Bahn Mi Hybrid. Contradictions are at the heart of what makes L.A. Chapter a thoroughly American restaurant. The techniques are classic and simple: olive oils and vegetable purees are favoured over butter and cream, fresh herbs and colourful accents keep plating contemporary and elegant.

The rooftop pool, inspired by Donald Judd's in Marfa, Tx, is a deep and cold respite from the Angeleno sun. Vogue poolside or post up with a fresh-squeezed cocktail prescribed by the friendly L.A. Chapter mixologists. The pool's host to DJs and pool parties, as well as the occasional yoga class and pop-up shop. 

LA Chapter's convenient Coffee Counter is a quick stop off from the lobby, keeping everybody caffeinated with the meticulously sourced, expertly roasted coffee provided by their old friends at Stumptown.

L.A. Chapter caters comfortably to a sophisticated clientele, but with the understanding that sometimes you just want a hamburger — and that it needs to be phenomenal hamburger.  Keeping with their commitment to high quality ingredients, L.A. Chapter source local and organic comestibles and raw goods as much as possible — and while they don’t feel the need to distract their customers with a laundry list of farmers and obscure ingredients, you can rest assured that the every dish is as impeccably sourced as it is delicious.

The hotel is sitting right on top of one of the most remarkable gems in the city — a delicately restored, 1,600-seat movie palace from the 1920s with a three-story, 2,300 square foot grand lobby, an ornate open balcony and mezzanine and a vaulted ceiling with thousands of tiny mirrors that glimmer when lit. The Theatre at Ace Hotel is the literal foundation of Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles.

Their loving reanimation of the former flagship movie house of United Artists, The Theatre serves Los Angeles' burgeoning epicenter for art and modern entertainment with a prime setting for a wide array of events — from large-scale concerts to movie premieres, conferences, seminars, symposiums and other performances. Retrofitted with a state-of-the-art digital projection system and cinema sound, an independent, ultramodern live sound system, plus an elaborate contemporary stage lighting system, the Theatre can take on whatever fits within the confines of its dazzling proscenium — a much-need bridge to the exciting future of Downtown Los Angeles.

The entirety of Ace Hotel Los Angeles is an inspiring location at the heart of the ongoing Broadway renaissance, a meeting place for creatives, innovators, artists and entrepreneurs. Our deep appreciation for its unique history is matched only by their commitment to ensuring the property’s long and exciting future.
