Gay-owned boutique hotel chain Ace will open a downtown Los Angeles location, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The newest Ace Hotel will open in the 85-year-old historic United Artists building located on Broadway and erected by Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks, Mary Pickford and D.W. Griffith.

Ace Hotel – described as “the country's most original” hotel by the New York Times – opened its first location in Seattle, Washington in 1999. The chain expanded into Portland in 2007, Palm Springs in 2009 and Manhattan in 2010.

According to gay glossy The Advocate, the chain was founded by three gay men: Alex Calderwood, Wade Weigel and Doug Herrick.

The Hollywood Reporter notes that the “Spanish-Gothic-styled building at 933 S. Broadway opened on the day after Christmas in 1927, with a screening in its eponymous 2,214-seat theater of the Mary Pickford and Charles 'Buddy' Rogers film My Best Girl. Pickford and fellow United Artists founders Douglas Fairbanks, D.W. Griffith and Charlie Chaplin commissioned the venue to host world premieres for their studio's films.”

Ace Hotels are frequented by entertainment industry patrons.
