The Ace Hotel opened officially today in the building on Broadway that houses the old United Artists theatre. Downtown boosters call the new boutique lodging another game changer for the central city's resurgence. It's less than a block from the new Swedish store and cafe Acne in the Eastern Columbia building and not much further from the new Urban Outfitters in the renovated Rialto Theatre. Iris Schneider stopped by the Ace Hotel before the opening to take a look around. — Editor
