After London and LA, Ace Hotels Will Open in Panama
Hipster hotel brand Ace Hotels keeps on surprising us with their expansion plans. Not only with they be opening in Downtown LA and in London this fall (the latter being a sneaky announcement we uncovered in June), they just announced on their Facebook page a new hotel in Panama, opening this Fall. But unlike other Aces, this hotel will actually go by the name, American Trade Hotel and Hall. Here's what Ace has to say about it:
The American Trade Hotel and Hall opens in Fall 2013 in Panama City, occupying a lovingly restored landmark building in Casco Viejo. The property stands at the ecological and cultural crossroads of the Americas, deeply connected to both the historic Old Quarter and the nascent new Panama City — a meeting place for influencers creatives and cultures from around the world. The property and surrounding area are steeped in local heritage and culture, while the hotel has been thoroughly outfitted with the contemporary conveniences and modern luxuries today's traveler requires. The property is the result of a joint undertaking between Atelier Ace, Panama City-based Conservatorio,and Commune Design. American Trade Hotel is the first independent, luxury addition to Atelier Ace's portfolio, which also includes the distinctive Ace Hotel.
Despite saying it would open in the Fall, reservations are actually open for January 1, 2014 with rooms starting at $339 a night. Meanwhile, reservations are still not open for Ace London Shoreditch or Ace Los Angeles but we hope those keep their Fall opening dates as well.
UPDATE: 12:37pm: London is open for reservations! We found rooms on September 9 for just 169GBP a night!
