Good news, uber-trendy hotel aficionados -- soon you won't have to travel all the way to Palm Springs to get a taste of the Ace Hotel. The hospitality company just bought the old United Artists building in downtown, and plans to open their first L.A. boutique there. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the hotel will resurrect and feature prominently a movie theater that was used for premieres in the early to mid 20th century.

The Ace already has locations in Seattle, Portland and New York, in addition to its Palm Springs boutique.
