Booked this for an xmas staycation with my partner and it was a perfect time. Chose the Ace due to proximity to the Walt Disney Concert Hall because my sweet got us tickets for LA Phil and dinner reservations in nearby Arts District. The staff is lovely—they even delivered a bottle of champagne and sweet note to our room since they knew we were celebrating our anniversary as well. We booked the medium specifically because it had a private terrace – we had the top floor and corner room and the view was incredible of old Broadway with the Eastern Building and Orpheum Theatre. Super clean, stylish and GREAT feng shui. Cozy robes, fun to shower with both a view of the terrace view and living space. 2 minute walk to Dune and so close to shops to grab what we needed last minute. Rooftop bar is cozy and cute, espresso martini on tap! Very romantic, devastated this Ace location is closing but we will cherish the memories! x

This is hipster heaven as I have a rooftop barn pool and a lobby restaurant. The neighborhood around it is technically called fashion district. I would rename the area lack of food district. If you do eat anywhere within a block or 2 you will pay 3 times what you think you should pay. The hotel definitely has some hipster elements using the old building they took over. The room is well equipped with alcohol if that is your goal.
