CHECK-IN: AFTER 3PM
TAXI: Ring the front desk and we’ll arrange a taxi or car service for you. Uber and other ride shares service the area as well. As always, be safe and use good judgment.
FOOD & DRINK: Upstairs there’s Kiln, our rooftop restaurant and bar offering scenic Surry Hills views and the cross-pollinating, genre-bending cooking style of our Chef-Partner, Mitch Orr. Downstairs there’s LOAM — sister to our DTLA dining spot and an oasis for fresh, seasonal fare prepared thoughtfully — and Good Chemistry, which is a day-to-night cafe and bar housed in a former pharmacy, serving up coffee, tea, a selection of draft wines and beers, and small plates. Then there’s always the Lobby for a drink or a snack right in the heart of it all.
Our front desk team has answers. Give us a call if:

Ace Hotel Sydney
47-53 Wentworth Ave,
02 8099 8799
Welcome to Ace Hotel Sydney. This is our very first spot south of the equator and we’re happy to show you around. Ace Sydney is settled within the reanimated, century-old Tyne Building, site of the country’s first brick kiln. We are nestled against the edge of the CBD in Surry Hills, a neighbourhood with a rich ‘n’ rough legacy of cultural reinvention, from the landmark Gay Solidarity Group protests of the 1970s to the razor gang wars of the 1920s and ’30s. In between our rooftop restaurant, Kiln, and our lobby-level cafe and bar, Good Chemistry, you’ll find everything you need right here, but we’re also connected to pretty much anywhere you’d want to go.
You are within walking distance of Hyde Park and the CBD, Darlinghurst and Redfern, and just a moment away from Central Station, with railways up and down NSW. Throughout Surry Hills, you’ll find vintage sellers, streetwear stores, handmade ceramics, book dealers and record shops. We’ve also got bikes for getting to these places or for just cruising.
We’re on the Internet too. To stay abreast of our collaborations, artist interviews and random things we like, follow us at reader.acehotel.com. For breadcrumb trails to events, videos, pictures and gems culled from Internet k-holes, you can find us at @acehotel on Instagram and Twitter. And if you’re already feeling tired and want us to just send all this stuff directly to you from time to time, you can join the A-List. It’s an online leaflet to keep you up-to-date on all our latest projects, ideas, gatherings, recipes and dreams. Sign up at acehotel.com/alist. Our shop is online at shop.acehotel.com and at the front desk — you’ll find the same blankets and robes as in your room, plus some other stuff we like too. Say hi at @acehotelshop.
We’re glad you’re here.

Situated along our Foy Lane entrance is Good Chemistry, a day-to-night cafe and bar housed in a former chemist’s and offering an airy space to enjoy a morning coffee or to gather with friends for a glass as evening approaches.

Ace Hotel New Orleans lives on the corner of Carondelet and Lafayette in one of the best cities on Earth. Housed in a nine-story building built for Barnett’s Furniture Store in 1928, Ace New Orleans’ rooms and public spaces are driven by a sense of design and wonder. We have a shimmering pool and bar on the roof, world-class dining and drink at Josephine Estelle, and intimate music venue Three Keys. We’re near art galleries and shopping museums and cocktails. It’s a quick jaunt to the French Quarter classics and just a bike ride to the lively Bywater and Marigny neighborhoods, with mystical nooks and corners you can explore on your own.
600 Carondelet Street, New Orleans LA 504.900.1180
Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles opened early 2014 in the historic United Artists building in Downtown LA. Built in 1927 for the maverick film studio, this ornate, storied and vibrant Los Angeles gem stands as a monument to a group of seminal American artists pushing out on their own, and anchors the Broadway Theater District’s modern renaissance. Mary Pickford’s love for the ornate detail and stone spires of Spanish castles and cathedrals is manifest at The Theatre — a true temple of the arts. The mixture of reverent awe and irreverent independence is right up our alley — this is the kind of project we dream of.
929 South Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90015
Ace Hotel New York is in a historical landmark building that originally opened in 1904 as the Hotel Breslin, located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, close to the Theater and Flatiron Districts, and Madison Square Park. We tried to preserve as many original features and details as possible — like the lobby’s ornate coffered ceilings and mosaic tile floors — in hopes of celebrating its history, and we worked with Roman and Williams to bring new personality to the space, with vintage and custom furniture, and things we’re not even sure how we pulled off, like the entire library we lifted from a Park Avenue apartment to make our lobby bar, and the light fixtures made with glass from the Hubble telescope.
20 W 29 Street, New York NY 212.679.222
Ace Hotel Portland is in the former Clyde Hotel, a 100-year-old building in downtown Portland, Oregon. It’s a little modern, a little DIY, and very much in thrall to the history and heritage of Portland, with a penchant for creating something new. The feeling is library meets apartment meets speakeasy, and each room features work by local and international artists (some of whom also have pieces at Ace New York). You can borrow a bike or an umbrella from us for adventures around the city.
1022 SW Stark Street, Portland OR 503.228.2277
— ACE HOTEL & SWIM CLUB —
Ace Hotel and Swim Club is located in a reinvented Howard Johnson at the foot of the San Jacintos. The 176-room hotel, spa and resort is within biking distance of downtown and close to cool stuff like Joshua Tree, all kinds of historic desert modern architecture and tons of great vintage shopping. It’s also the best place in Palm Springs to get a laid-back massage or natural treatment at the Feel Good Spa, or to see one of the many DJs, live musicians and big personalities that come visit us.
701 E Palm Canyon Dr, Palm Springs, CA 760.325.9900
Our first hotel ever, Ace Hotel Seattle is near and dear to our hearts. Built in a historic boarding house in Belltown, we’re at the heart of Seattle’s art and music scene, near the waterfront and Pike Place Market (where they throw the fish). Minimalist iterations of Northwestern themes fill the lobby and guest rooms, and the common spaces include a study and breakfast nook with a do-it-yourself waffle iron (waffle dough included). Small but mighty, Ace Seattle is famous among dozens, and well-loved among its friends.
2423 First Avenue, Seattle WA 206.448.4721
— ACE HOTEL KYOTO —
Ace Hotel Kyoto was created in partnership with legendary architect Kengo Kuma and longtime collaborators Commune Design. It’s a place of honest dialogue with the city’s past and future legends, and Ace Hotel’s first outpost in Asia. We’re a stone’s throw from contemporary cultural treasures like the Nishiki Market, the Museum of Kyoto and Kyoto Art Center, and just steps away from Kamesuehiro, the iconic 200-year old confectionery. Part of the Shinpuhkan development, we’re in the middle of a vibrant marketplace filled with shops and cafes.
Ace Hotel Brooklyn belongs to Boerum Hill, on the cusp of Downtown Brooklyn — a block from the Hoyt-Schermerhorn Station, at the ever-evolving intersection of everything. The latest chapter in Ace’s long romance with New York, we built Ace Hotel Brooklyn from the ground up: every piece in service of the borough’s tireless ingenuity, made to move and breathe with the city itself.
— ACE HOTEL TORONTO —
Ace Hotel Toronto was built bottom to top in the heart of Toronto’s vital Garment District, offering a future-facing homage to the neighborhood’s industrial warehouse roots. Created in partnership with award-winning Torontonian firm Shim-Sutcliffe Architects, Ace’s first Canadian home embraces the utopian promise of Toronto as a microcosm of the world, in all its layered tension and texture — a crossroads of global culture imbued with a history of progressive, transgressive art and ideas.
— ATELIER ACE —
Atelier Ace is an award-winning, in-house creative services firm providing interior, graphic and product design, marketing, PR, development, digital presence and event and cultural engineering for our properties.
A hand-selected team of creatives, designers, writers, web developers, marketing and new media innovators make it possible for Ace to express its culture and create an inspiring, cohesive and meaningful experience for guests and fans of Ace at each property and through events, collateral and design.
