Ace Hotel is a collection of individuals — multiple and inclusive — seeking to embrace the cities we live in by building spaces for collective gathering. Whether thoughtfully reinterpreting historic buildings or imagining radical new structures, our aim is always to make something energized, human and soulful.
Our hotels are inspired by an affinity for the soulful and fueled by our love for the hyperlocal. A study in contrasts, Ace Hotel marries the pragmatic with the romantic, the private with the collective, the old world with the future. We are guided by empathy and compassion, and believe that the best things in life take conviction, guts and community. The way we do anything is the way we do everything.
Atelier Ace is Ace Hotel’s in-house creative, marketing, events, interior, architecture and graphic design team. We’re a curious hybrid — romantics with an unswerving business savvy, easy-going yet driven, casual but elegant. We architect event spaces, rooms, nightly magic, branded campaigns, curios and keepsakes and see the hotel as a potential for real, fluid community.
With everything we do, we try to collaborate with and celebrate people whose work inspires us. We like the stories that come with things and think that wherever you are, you should feel like you’re there.
Ace Hotel Pittsburgh makes its home in a century-old former YMCA building at the heart of East Liberty. We’re surrounded by a community that, through grassroots support, has helped to create a place both by the neighborhood and for the neighborhood. We’re a short jaunt from some of the best restaurants in the city, museums and braintrusts, an active art and idea scene with shops, galleries and cafes filled with folks pushing and pulling culture, advocating at the edges of Pittsburgh’s future, helping one another grow through the deep roots of one of America’s most hope-springing cities.
We have public spaces to gather, start a startup, watch the game, divine plans large and small. There’s world-class dining and drink in the building, at the ready — and if you’re into sleeping, we happen to have the most comfortable beds in the galaxy.
