American hotel company Ace Hotel has permanently closed its outpost in Shoreditch, London, after shuttering the venue temporarily due to the coronavirus pandemic, hinting that it plans to open at another location in the city in future.

Hotel company Lore Group, which operates the building, said it planned to renovate the hotel and reopen it under its own management.
Designed by Universal Design Studio, the 258-room Ace Hotel London Shoreditch opened in 2013 in a building that was previously the Crowne Plaza London.
Its opening helped seal Shoreditch's reputation as a hip, upcoming district and the hotel quickly became a hub for London's design scene, hosting numerous exhibitions and events.
