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.

Belltown is a historic waterfront neighborhood, once home to a thriving maritime industry. In fact, Ace Hotel Seattle was originally built to provide affordable housing for transient maritime workers. Today, Belltown is home to many restaurants, art galleries, boutiques, nightclubs, residential towers, a vibrant tech sector and several universities.
Some of the historic establishments still thriving in Belltown include Pike Place Market, Moore Theater, The Rendezvous, Mama’s Kitchen, The Lava Lounge, Ohana, The Crocodile Café and Shorty’s. The Olympic Sculpture Park is about six blocks from here on the waterfront.
Belltown has restaurants with nearly every kind of cuisine from fine dining to street food. On weekends, the nightlife scene here is vibrant. If you need some suggestions about where to go, eat, shop and hang out, that's what our rad front desk staff is good at doing, so just ask.
Whether you're looking for a giant slab of fresh-caught salmon, a piece of local art, or a place to deposit your used chewing gum, Pike Place Market has it all. One of the country’s largest and oldest public markets, Pike Place is teeming with tourists and curious shoppers every day of the week – you’ll find a lot of things here, but a quiet moment to yourself isn’t one of them.
Restaurants, bakeries, and coffeeshops galore keep you fed and caffeinated while you shop. The people watching can't be beat – and when you're ready to soak up some sun (when it's there), head to Victor Steinbrueck Park at the north end of the market.
The first Rudy’s Barbershop opened its doors in 1993 on Pine Street in the Capitol Hill neighborhood, only a few years before the future (and also first) Ace Hotel put down roots in town. The idea was to expand on the traditional notion of a barbershop as a place for community, creativity and culture.
Now Rudy’s is considered the spot to get your hair cut in Seattle, LA and Portland, and New York— and while you're here, their closest outpost is just around the corner.
All 8 Seattle locations are open from 9am-9pm.
The building Ace Hotel Seattle inhabits opened in 1909 as one of several hotels in the area built for maritime workers. It was known throughout its history as the Latona Hotel and New Latona Hotel. The façade used to bear the name “The Glaser Building” for some years, probably named for a member of the locally prominent Glaser family.
The Sunset Tavern operated intermittently on the first floor from the 30s through the 80s. In the 90s the building was owned by the Peniel Mission, a homeless shelter. The shelter was taken over by City Team Ministries in 1998 and moved to a new facility on Elliott Avenue West.
After this move, the Ace team renovated the building, salvaging as many original fixtures and architectural details as possible while creating Ace Hotel Seattle in cooperation with designer Eric Hentz.
