Adventure: Staycation at the Ace Downtown Los Angeles

Adventure: Staycation at the Ace Downtown Los Angeles

I swear I'm addicted to adventures. With limited time on my hands while I build the B&G Studio, my friend suggested a quick staycation to the Ace Downtown Los Angeles. She didn't have to suggest it twice. In a matter of moments, the journey was booked. Sam and I jumped into the car a couple weeks later and found ourselves vacationing in our own backyard—well, not really but you get the idea. For 24 hours, we stayed on the hotel grounds (minus the quick trip to the taco stand) and enjoyed drinks on the rooftop terrace. The views of Downtown LA, room service from LA Chapter and friendly staff sweeten the staycation. We definitely have more adventures with the Ace in our future.
