Ace Hotel Pittsburgh

Hello friends, how's the second week of the new year treating you? Well, I hope. I myself am just settling back into reality after a much-needed jaunt to Pittsburgh over the weekend. For any of you who may not know, I have a special relationship with the City of Champions, because I lived there for a number of years while I was in grad school at Carnegie Mellon.

being back over the weekend was just what the doctor ordered - a fantastic visit with some old friends, a stroll down memory lane, and the chance to see how much has changed in the ever-growing city. Surely, by now you've seen that Pittsburgh is one of the most livable cities in the Us, or that it is home to some of the greatest restaurants in the country, or that it just can't seem to keep millennials away. But one of my favorite new developments in the city is the opening of the Ace Hotel in the old YMCA building in East Liberty.

I've written about my love for the Ace before - and back when I was living in LA, I skipped town for the Ace Palm Springs every chance I could get. So to my delight I had the opportunity to visit the barely-a-month-old hotel for brunch at their in house restaurant, The Whitfield, this weekend. Truly, it did not disappoint. It was everything I loved about the Ace Palm Springs - well-curated art and decor, locally specific cuisine, an unmistakably cool vibe - but with a Steel-city spin. Check out some of the pics I snapped below:

If you find yourself in Pittsburgh sometime soon (as well you should!) then do consider a stay at the Ace- you can look into their rates on their website Here. And don't forget about all of the other fantastic cities Ace has called home... it's not too early to start thinking about Spring Break getaways, you know! Happy travels! x
