I enjoyed the overall aesthetic of my room and loved the view.

A unique old space in a great location with a friendly staff. Several things need to be improved upon if they in a growing post-pandemic competitive market: 1. Parking. Not clear where to park. We parked in a flanking lot after holding to speak to someone. The lot was not open for overnight parking. The lot was reserved for an event that night so we paid, and then had to pay again to move our car to another a few hours later. 2. Bell service. Staff didn't offer when we mentioned we had luggage a couple hundred yards away. 3. Amenities. We heard staff mentioning different amenities to each guest and forgetting some. No consistent script for check-in. We had to call down a few times to ask. E.g. Wireless, pool, etc. 4. Room: We had a top-floor loft. Great views, fairly clean, fun design, and add-ons like Turntable, Guitar, Radio. There is a very strange and unfinished/dirty design feature which is unfinished soundboard on several walls. This should be changed. 5. Housekeeping: Housekeeping is very untrained. On check-out day (noon checkout), they entered at 9:15AM and again at 11:50AM. We were in the room both times. 6. Locked out. Even though checkout is noon, the hotel locked our keys at 11:00AM and blamed it on an old system so we had to go all the way back down after arriving back to our room at 11:25AM. 7. "Upstairs" (rooftop restaurant). The food and servers were top-notch. The hostess, however, needs more training. She was not welcoming or polite or communicative.

The Ace offered excellent customer service and great cocktails. The location is good in terms of proximity.

Did not meet our standards and was over priced. Antonio the Mgr was outstanding.

Definitely not staying again! They put me in such a bad 2 double beds room although I booked king. Apparently they were sold out and then they were giving king rooms to other people who were checking out after me. I asked for the late check out and they said not possible, all sold out and then i checked, they had available rooms. Honestly that was at least what they could do.

Quite easily the worst hotel I've stayed in. There's nothing one can do to improve it.

It was very loft like in downtown as a feel. The room was minimal while also seeming trendy. It was very LA.

I loved it the staff was great the food was great and the roof top Yaaaaaaaaaaassssss

This is my favorite place to stay in LA... I also love that there is a 24 hour taco stand next door. It doesn't get better than this in my book.

I love this place... it's my favorite, I just wish I had more time to stay there!

I paid for a service I did not get. They gave my room because I didn’t showed up early

We were blown away by the vibe of the place. The food at the restaurant was awesome. A record player with discs in the room along with a tuned guitar added unexpected moments to your stay. A claw bathtub and a reasonably priced upgrade when we arrived (thank you Jazmine) wowed us. So did the rooftop bar. Would love to return and recommend a stay to anyone.

The whole vibe was fantastic. Great rooftop bar and nice rooms.

Great location near downtown restaurants and nightlife.

slightly weird rooms and showers, good food, great rooftop bar,

Did not take care to ensure my room was cleaned before I got back on a day desperately needed to come home to a clean room. Contacted housekeeping and was told to make the bed myself and that all they could send up was trowels like I was lucky to even get that. When I called to complain later that night i got pushed back. To the point that it was insinuated I was lying. Very upsetting close to my very tough day.
