Atelier Ace, the parent company of Ace Hotels, along with local developer Domain Companies, has finally announced the name of the new Ace hotel in the former Stone Pigman office building at 546 Carondelet St. The new hotel will be named Maison de la Luz.
Maison de la Luz will be a much higher end hotel than the Ace next door, with 67 guest rooms designed by Los Angeles-based Studio Shamshiri. The property will also feature a speakeasy-type bar and library, but no major full-service restaurant or the amenities that the current Ace offers. Presumably, visitors at the Maison will have full access to Ace’s amenities.
Maison de la Luz is the first in what many think will become a new brand of higher end hotels for Atelier Ace. The company also launched a more limited-service product, Sister City, which will open in New York this year.
Palmisano is the general contractor. Maison de la Luz will open in spring 2019.
