Another Trendy DTLA Hotel Opening In January
Hipsters rejoice! Furthering the hip revitalization of Downtown Los Angeles, the Ace Hotel is set to open its newest location in the old United Artists building on January 15.
The hotel was originally supposed to open right about now, but apparently the opening date was pushed forward a few months to add a few extra things. The hotel will feature 180 rooms that range from basic rooms to 633-square-foot terrace suites. The Ace will also feature a 1,600-seat theater, a rooftop bar and a restaurant called LA Chapter, according to Downtown News.
The hotel will be the second Southern California location for Ace. The hotel chain opened in Palm Springs a few years back after commandeering an old Howard Johnson/Denny's combo. Based on the ambiance of the Palm Springs location, this newest member of the Ace family will probably feature a warm pool, found furniture from either the previous tenants of the building or local vintage stores, and sweet indie tunes filling every corridor.
The Ace is known for its price almost as much as its image; prices will range from $239 to $589 a night. If you want to get on the ground floor of this trendy new addition to Downtown, the Ace has started accepting reservations now.
