The historic United Artists Building, designed by Mary Pickford, was constructed as a film studio in the center of L.A. back in 1927. It was the tallest building in the city for one year after its completion. The building stands as a shining monument to the American artistic spirit and theatrical history. The theater exemplifies the love of Spanish castle and cathedral stonework that Ms. Pickford held near and dear.
It is now home to the Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles, which offers seven fresh and minimalist rooms and suites. After checking into your modern room, feel free to head up to the roof to sip on a cool drink at the rooftop bar while relaxing in the rooftop pool. The main attraction is the restored United Artists Theater which occupies three floors of the 13-story building and has a 1,600-seat auditorium.
The hotel is in the heart of the historic Broadway Theater District. You can visit iconic L.A. landmarks like the Staples Center, LA Fashion District, and Los Angeles Convention Center during your stay here. If you prefer to experience the Hollywood movie theaters, you can take a short 7 miles drive.
