The Ace Hotel has always been a business model we have admired.

The vision by Alex Calderwood and his business partners, is original and authentic. Their growth has been organic, with 7 hotels currently worldwide (Downtown LA, New York, Seattle, Portland, Palm Springs and Panama) and counting (more hotels are rumored to open next year in America).

Their hospitality is unparalleled. Clever and practical design (low-cost yet very, very effective), partnered with aesthetically-pleasing twists (gold details in the adjoining Hoi Polloi restaurant at their London branch) make the Ace Hotel the go-to place for a good nights rest, evening dinner with friends or daytime ‘office’ with great coffee for those important meetings that seem casual in the relaxed environment.
The Ace Hotel have really created a unique environment, that many other hotels struggle to do.

We feel Champ share the same attitude as The Ace, and we are proud to partner with them and gift their guests with our issue 8 of Champ Magazine.

Each of their 258 rooms in their Shoreditch location in London have Champ issue 8 in their presence, and we look forward to their like-minded guests finding inspiration and new knowledge during their visit.
