We fell in love with a former maritime workers’ hotel in Belltown and started our first-ever hotel in 1999. It’s where our roots are — the unfussy luxury and intentional design ethos that drive the Pacific Northwest. Loft ceilings, hardwood floors (wherever we could preserve them) and art by our friends like KAWS and Shepard Fairey in guest rooms were some of the elements that put us on the hotelier map, and they’re still a touch point for Ace today. Being green comes naturally at Ace Hotel Seattle, with eco-friendly and sustainable touches like vintage and re-purposed furniture. Guests share stylishly-appointed, private-upon-entry bathrooms, with the option to book a deluxe room with a private bathroom. In the heart of Belltown, Ace is near downtown and within walking distance of popular destinations like the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, the Seattle waterfront and plenty of great restaurants and places to see live music and bands. It’s also easy to get to the Capitol Hill neighborhood, and it’s a great place to stay when you’re seeing the Mariners at Safeco Field or the Seahawks at Qwest Field. Cyclops Café and the Panther Room bar are downstairs, serving food and drinks until late at night. We have free WiFi and our accommodations are pet-friendly, which really means dog-friendly. Our rates are cheap in comparison to other Seattle hotels and motels, even if you book at the last minute. In fact, they’re some of the cheapest Seattle rooms you’ll find. It’s like knowing a little secret.
