Ace Hotel Toronto
51 Camden Street
At the meeting of Camden and Brant Streets, Ace Hotel Toronto is set in what was once the city’s vital Garment District. Created in partnership with award-winning firm Shim-Sutcliffe Architects, Ace’s first Canadian outpost 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. Ace Toronto is crafted from materials of integrity, such as red brick and Douglas fir, that imbue the building with a particularly Canadian feel. Chef Patrick Kriss of Alo Food Group guides the menu across the hotel, from Alder, our all-day wood-fired restaurant to our 14th floor rooftop bar. The building is a civic space, a home for creative thinkers from near and far, and is built with everything you need but never far from anything you may want.
Ace Toronto is within an outstretched arm of many of the independent and legacy cultural institutions that comprise Toronto’s multicultural mosaic. We are adjacent to Queen West, Chinatown and the Downtown business core, blocks from famed music venues Horseshoe Tavern and Velvet Underground, from the Art Gallery of Ontario and TIFF Bell Lightbox, and from the Bentway — the city’s artistic, cultural and recreational public space. There’s Better Gift Shop in Chinatown, gallery and retailer of in-house apparel, rare artist memorabilia, zines and works by international artists and designers. Superette for your smoking needs and Play De Record, Invisible City Editions and Kops for rare vinyl finds. Nearby is Kensington Market, a neighborhood-size embodiment of Toronto’s energy, with international foods, street art and tons of great vintage shopping.
Find us 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.

— ACE HOTEL NEW ORLEANS —
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
— ACE HOTEL DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES —
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 Theater — 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
— ACE HOTEL NEW YORK —
Ace Hotel New York is in a historic 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
— ACE HOTEL PORTLAND —
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
— ACE HOTEL SEATTLE —
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
— 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 cafés.
245-2 Kurumayacho, Nakagyo Ward, Kyoto
— ACE HOTEL BROOKLYN —
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.
252 Schermerhorn St, Brooklyn, NY
— 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
— ACE HOTEL SYDNEY —
Ace Sydney is settled within the reanimated, century-old Heritage Federation Warehouse building — home to Australia’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 café, Good Chemistry, you’ll find everything you need right here, but we’re also within walking distance to Hyde Park and the CBD, Darlinghurst and Redfern, and just a moment away from Central Station.
47 – 53 Wentworth Ave, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia
— 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.
