Steal This Look: A Bedroom Suite at the New Ace Hotel Pittsburgh


Steal This Look: A Bedroom Suite at the New Ace Hotel Pittsburgh

January 26, 2016

The latest outpost of the Ace Hotel is ushering in a Pittsburgh renaissance. Located in a 100-year-old former YMCA building in East Liberty, the hotel was designed by Chad Chalmers of Moss Architects and the Ace Hotel design team Atelier Ace.

In classic Ace fashion, the rooms are modest, cool, and full of ideas to steal. Here we decode some of the basics and show off Atelier Ace’s sourcing (Pittsburgh local and otherwise).
