Ace Hotel plans to add New Orleans location | New Orleans City Business

A project underway to redevelop a former office building downtown into a new hotel property will open next year under the Ace Hotel brand, the company announced Tuesday.



The Portland, Oregon hotel chain confirmed it would  open a 234-room Ace Hotel in the nine-story Art Deco office building at 600 Carondelet St. A $34 million construction project began last fall and is expected to wrap up in early 2016.
