Ace Hotel Chicago Opens in Fulton Market

The hip boutique hotel debuts in the trendy West Loop neighborhood with an impressive restaurant and rooftop bar.


In July 2017, Fulton Market—the industrial-cool district in Chicago’s West Loop—welcomed the newest outpost of Portland-based hotel chain Ace Hotel. The boutique hotel seamlessly combines past and present for a vibe that’s effortlessly hip, preserving its historic brick facade as a nod to the building’s former life as an Italian-American cheese-making factory, while also integrating sleek, modern elements such as concrete and glass.

Hotel Rooms

The 159-room Ace Hotel Chicago offers accommodations ranging from 290-square-foot rooms to 864-square-foot suites—all of which come with thoughtful amenities such as complimentary Wi-Fi, Rudy’s toiletries and Pearl+ soaps. Additional property amenities include a 24-hour gym, valet parking and a classic photo booth for taking souvenir pictures.


Where to Eat & Drink

Your meeting attendees will have no problem finding a perfect spot to grab a bite to eat or a craft cocktail when they stay at Ace Hotel Chicago. On the ground floor is City Mouse, a 90-seat restaurant overseen by the culinary team behind the critically acclaimed Giant. City Mouse features an outdoor patio and fire pit, serving up brunch every day, as well as dinner and happy hour specials. The menu offers a lineup of New American dishes, from sweet cornmeal griddle cakes and avocado toast for brunch, to goat cheese ravioli and smoked chicken for dinner.

For pre- or post-dinner drinks, guests can head up to the rooftop bar, Waydown, perched on the seventh floor, where nightly music, skyline views and handcrafted cocktails set the scene for relaxing or socializing.


Meeting Spaces & Event Venues

The Mahoney, a light-filled event venue on the ground floor, offers 1,992 square feet of flexible meeting space, featuring moveable panels designed by artist Jojo Chuang. This gathering space is optimal for large groups, and its abundant natural light makes it a visually appealing choice for daytime events.

For impressive outdoor events boasting sweeping views of Chicago’s glittering skyline, the Prairie garden terrace is ideal. This sixth-floor event venue is located amidst the hotel’s urban garden (which supplies ingredients to City Mouse) and overlooks the city for a truly incredible backdrop. The state-of-the-art speaker system makes this spot a convenient choice for celebrations and social gatherings.

Waydown at Ace Hotel Chicago

Adjacent to Prairie are two flexible indoor event spaces, Form & Function, offering floor-to-ceiling views of the Chicago skyline and direct access to the garden terrace. Whether you’re planning a business meeting or post-convention gathering, these two spaces (Form: 1,657 square feet; Function: 1,235 square feet) can be used separately or together for a smooth attendee experience.
