Back in Oct 2011, DTLA Rising broke the news that Ace Hotel was potentially taking over the historic United Artist Theater near 9th and Broadway in the Historic Core borderline Fashion District. Obviously that “rumor” turned out to be one of the most exciting and highly anticipated redevelopment projects in Downtown LA. Two years later, construction on the hotel project is finally nearing completion with an opening date slated for early next year. In fact, the Ace Hotel website is now accepting reservations beginning Jan 15, 2014 with current room rates ranging from $212 to $569.
The 182-room hotel will feature an amazing rooftop pool and bar with spectacular views of the Downtown LA skyline. There will also be a fitness center and in-room amenities that Ace Hotel is known for. In addition, the 1,600-seat performance space inside the historic 1927 United Artist Theater will be reactivated with the inclusion of a screening room as well. Los Angeles-based design firm, Commune, and Ace Hotel’s in-house firm, Atelier Ace, were brought on to design the hotel guest rooms and common spaces.
When Ace Hotel opens next year, it will be a complete game changer for the revitalization happening along Broadway adding a substantial major injection to the critical mass of new businesses coalescing around the epicenter of 9th/Broadway including newcomers: Acne Studios, Aesop, Tanner Goods, and Tarina Tarantino’s Sparkle Factory.
“Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles marks our second opening in California,” Alex Calderwood, co-founder of Ace Hotel Group, explained in a statement. “Restoring this landmark is the kind of project we dream of and we’re proud to be a part of the on-going revitalization of Downtown Los Angeles.”
