As of last week, downtown Scottsdale has one more reason to kick back a few vintage cocktails; The New-York based Sydell Group (behind the Ace Hotel New York and the Ace Hotel and Swim Club in Palm Spring) purchased Hotel Theodore with plans for a rename and big-time renovation.

And judging by the photos of Ace Hotels currently in Portland, Seattle, New York, and Palm Springs on the Ace Hotel flickr group, we'll have more than a few reasons to geek out in the new hipster haven.
Check out the predictions for the space's food offerings on Chow Bella and six boutique-y reasons why we're excited for the new spot after the jump ...

2. Indoor Wall Murals
