We are planning a trip to Portland Oregon. If and when we go we are going to stay at the Ace Hotel. This is one of the coolest hotels I've ever seen. Vintage-Mod is how they describe themselves. I feel like it would suit us down to a 'T'. You can read all about the Ace Hotel here.
Check out the graphics above the bed - looks like an airport terminal plan don't you think? And I love the fact that there is a turntable and records in the room - how cool is that? And a vintage photo booth in the lobby - what more could you want really! Apparently this was a derelict building when the developers bought it and they used local, vintage and found materials to bring it back to life as a stylish alternative to a standard hotel.
The Ace Hotel is at 1022 SW Stark St, Portland, OR. They have a great little website with very fun graphics. Be sure to read the press pages for all sorts of really interesting information on the hotel. And if you are a Portlander we'd love some travel tips for first timers like us - artsy, vintage and foody stuff - thanks!
