The Ace Hotel Downtown
929 S. Broadway, Downtown
In one of the more ambitious remodels in the city’s recent history, the Ace transformed the United Artists theater into a huge pull for locals and visitors alike. While downtown L.A. is undergoing a greater Renaissance, this 1920s institution is inarguably one of its crown jewels. Besides hotel rooms, there’s the popular restaurant Best Girl, a coffee bar, and an Acne outpost just around the corner.
3515 Wilshire Blvd., Downtown
The rooms are a bit industrial, but this hotel—located in burgeoning Koreatown—is well-priced, making it a great alternative for those who want to be near the city's most exciting food scene. And the food scene starts right in the hotel, with Pot and Commissary, which are both from famed LA-chef (and food truck star) Roy Choi.
