It's Official: Ace Hotel Will Take Over 600 Carondelet St.

Last year we contributed to some rumormongering about an Ace Hotel possibly opening at the old Max Barnett Furniture Store at 600 Carondelet Street. Well, it's official: the hip hotel chain will open at the art deco Warehouse District building in early 2016, reports Jed Lipinski of NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune.

Rumors of the hotel opening a location here began after Domain Companies bought the building for $5.5 million in 2013. NOLA.com says Roman and Williams, the designers behind the Ace New York hotel, will design the 234-room hotel, which will include a restaurant, bar and rooftop swimming pool. The New Orleans outpost of the Portland-based chain will also include a Stumptown Coffee Roasters cafe, to really give you that Portland experience.

Construction on the space began last fall, and it is expected to be complete in early 2016.
