THE ACE HOTEL X PIT


Ace Hotel Pittsburgh makes its home in a century-old former YMCA building at the heart of East Liberty. We're surrounded by a community that, through grassroots support, has helped to create a place both by the neighborhood and for the neighborhood. We're a short jaunt from some of the best restaurants in the city, museums and braintrusts, an active art and idea scene with shops, galleries and cafes filled with folks pushing and pulling culture, advocating at the edges of Pittsburgh's future, helping one another grow through the deep roots of one of America's most hope-springing cities.

We have public spaces to gather, start a startup, watch the game, divine plans large and small. There's world-class dining and drink in the building, at the ready — and if you're into sleeping, we happen to have the most comfortable beds in the galaxy.
