Established in 2015. Ace Hotel PGH resides in a historic, century-old building, formerly the East Liberty YMCA. We've preserved many features of its past -- its windows, its ornate facade, its velodrome -- in hopes of celebrating its rich history. Pittsburgh is a city we love for its neighborhoods. East Liberty, for instance, was once a free-grazing field in the shadow of the Alleghenies, and before that it was under the sea. (You can still find brachiopod fossils hidden beneath the sidewalk).

Was at the Ace Hotel for a Women's Conference. Staff was great, facilities were clean & loved the nostalgic atmosphere. I appreciate when old becomes new. Would not hesitate looking to book another event here.

I absolutely loved my stay at the Ace! It is an old YMCA that was renovated but they kept a lot of the original fixtures and even the old gym! You can hang out in the gym when not reserved. Rooms were gorgeous with a view, fantastic restaurant and bar, and great overall

Love Ace hotel vibes... cool building and neighborhood. Love that I can usually find good coffee and veg heavy menus at Ace. Love the warm but unobtrusive service. All that said, this Ace hotel isn’t well kept. I’m not an ocd clean freak but there is a distinct pattern... Hair

The hotel is operated by a young and very friendly staff. The valet parking attendant brought our bags right up to our room while we were checking in. The hotel has a great feel to it. The bar serves excellent drinks, was very busy plus you can play cornhole or ping pong in

I have read there are no closets. Is there space to hang a suit and dress for a wedding???
Yes! We have a wall mounted rail system in each room that you can easily hang both a dress and a suit. Hope this helps. See you soon!

I really don't know the answer to this. But they use the old gym for parties and weddings, so definitely not to its original purpose.

Shauna087, Thanks for the question! Feel free to give us a call. We can book you a discounted reservation for you here at the hotel. As far as the distance, we are bit to far to walk. A short car ride or Uber can get you there in 15!

Hey Casey, Our central location between where PITT plays and the other destinations in town would be a good home base. We don't have a hotel shuttle, however Uber and Lyft are usually only minutes away. Hope to see you soon! Nick P.

"Ask for a room with a view of the cathedral"
"best rooms have claw foot tubs."
"ask for a room on the 5th floor facing the library , the view is amazing"
"the top floor (5th) was pleasantly quiet"
"5th floor is quietest and exterior rooms have views. Some face an air shaft and opposite rooms’ windows. Parking $25/night."
US$ 134 - US$ 345 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
