Ace Hotel Review
The quintessential Portland hotel, Ace makes the "hipster" aesthetic available to anyone and, sandwiched between Stumptown Coffee and Clyde Common restaurant a block from Powell's Books, Ace positions you well to enjoy all downtown has to offer. The minimalist, no-frill rooms are outfitted with comfortable, futon-style mattresses and Pendelton wool blankets, clawfoot bathtubs/showers, small TVs, and original, hand-painted wall murals. A few have vintage accessories like turntables and record collections. The common areas are inviting and cool hangout spaces, with large comfy couches and well stocked bookshelves. There's a black-and-white photo booth right inside the front door.
Hipsters will find the quirky, irreverent design at this hotel in downtown Portland appealing. Well-priced pads are über-upscale dorm style, with eco-friendly elements and vintage furniture, as well as nature-inspired scenes painted on walls. Some deluxe rooms have turntables to spin old-school vinyl, and a photo booth in the lobby snaps classic black-and-white pictures to add to the fun.
