Spendy hipsters from out of town (and surely a few would-be local staycationers of the same ilk) need not fret much longer when it comes to appropriately cool accommodations in Downtown Los Angeles. Finally, after well over a year of anxious waiting, the Ace Hotel has revealed they will be open in DTLA this fall.The boutique hotel chain slipped the opening info in via their Twitter page, adding to their bio: "Opening in Downtown Los Angeles in fall 2013." A ha! Now we know!

The Ace Hotel's second California location (the first is the uber popular Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs, natch) is going to be in the old United Artists building. Plans have been to resurrect and feature prominently a movie theater that was used for premieres during the golden era of the silver screen. The building dates back to 1927. The hotel calls the storied and architectural significant site transformation "the kind of project we dream of."
