Stay at a Fab Hotel with a Cool Vintage Vibe
L.A.’s Ace Hotel Downtown, opened January 2014 in the city’s skyscraper-filled downtown close to the Staples Center, absolutely oozes with atmosphere. The Ace inhabits the iconic, Spanish Gothic-styled United Artists Building which dates back to 1927 — updated and upgraded by ultra-groovy LA interiors group Commune Design. The 180 guest rooms — which include artsy elements such as custom-designed Pendleton wool blankets — are set in its main tower, while next door is the building’s original, cavernous 1,600-seat theater which will be used for screenings, parties and events. The Ace also includes a signature restaurant by Brooklyn-based chef Jud Mongell (of Greenpoint’s Five Leaves-fame) and a series of luxe bar spaces.
