Just One Year To Go Until The Opening Of Ace Downtown Los Angeles
For Ace's next California location, the hip hotel brand has honed in on LA's re-emerging Downtown neighborhood, and even better, work has already begun on converting a 1927-built United Artists movie theater into a 180-room hotel. OK, fine, that part we already knew.
But it looks like the Ace team has actually set a tentative opening date of Fall 2013, which would make it the Ace's fifth property in 14 years. Compared to the big corporate entities, that's practically nothing, but then again that's why we like the Ace so much. After all, we don't see Hyatt or Hilton going in and restoring 2,214-seat movie theaters out of the kindness of their hearts.
Furthermore, Ace has now created an interim Los Angeles page on their website, and last night, posted the above photo on their Instagram feed, generating more than a few excited responses from fellow Instagram-ers:
"missmodernist: YAYAYYAYAYAYAYAY!!!!!! So f'ing excited!!!!!!!!!!!
alterbrooklyn: Ace LA! Looking forward to staying there!
doublearies: Rad shot
thevinyljunkie: Yesssssss... fast forward to Fall 2013 please!
joannetagorda: Can't wait!!!! #dtla"
Clearly, we're not the only ones who are buying into the new property's hype.
What's more, it's been revealed that the hotel will also have a pool, which we, like, totally didn't see coming. Especially with Ace Palm Springs just a two hour drive away.
Plus, a pool and an old-school movie theater? Come on, there has to be a limit to the fun somewhere, right? No, actually we take that back.
