Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles

Ace Hotel Downtown LA opens in 2013 in the historic United Artists building. The downtown LA landmark was built in 1927 to provide offices and a theater for the maverick film studio. The theater and tower stand as monuments to a group of seminal American artists pushing out on their own — driven by the need for creative control. United Artists co-founder 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 in its origins is right up our alley — this is the kind of project we dream of.

Check back often on and our blog for upcoming deals and packages. Our luxury amenities include room service, free WiFi and a gym. Come to check out the scene at the Upstairs rooftop bar and pool where we have DJs or live music every night, or the restaurant by the creators of Brooklyn's Five Leaves. By the way, our accommodations are pet-friendly (which really means dog-friendly, but let us know if you want to bring anything bigger or weirder than a dog and we'll see what we can do).
