Ace Hotel Chicago lives in the heart of the West Loop, a bitcoin's throw from Google and all the best restaurants in the city. We have public spaces, a top floor bar called Waydown (named after the John Prine song) with insane city views, an all-day restaurant called City Mouse helmed by Jason Vincent and the guys from Giant, and a lounge with WiFi and drinks til 2am, for working or playing. All our rooms have really comfortable beds, and some have record players and Martin Guitars. 

The hotel is built as a tribute to the great thinkers, designers and artists that the city's churned out over the years — a monument to Mies Van der Rohe, Marion Mahoney's Prairie School and Josef and Anni Albers, to name a few. We have artwork everywhere — tapestries, wall hangings, brass installations and wall sconces that play with texture, light and shadow — curated by Chicago's Volume Gallery. It's a place for you. Stop by, have a bite, see a show.
