The area around the historic Fulton Market is the epicenter of the West Loop. This is where the Hotel ACE is located. It features 159 guest rooms, five event locations and a lobby lounge, an exclusive restaurant as well as a cool rooftop bar with a wonderful view of Chicago’s Inner-Loop skyline.

The architecture refers to a further development of the local  Bauhaus movement that was initiated by László Moholy-Nagy in 1937 and that heightened in the iconic works of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.

Historic elements and newly added facade elements now create a very harmonious look and feel. The interior was realized by the Commune Design Studio and combines an industrial atmosphere with vintage accents.

The lobby impresses with a spectacular piece of art by illustrator Chad Kouri.
