Reservations | Ace Hotel, Portland

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!

You will love Portland! I was born there, moved away with my family when I was young. But, I always went back every summer and spent the summers with my grandparents. If you get the chance, make sure to make the 2 hour drive to the coast - simply beautiful!

Wow, what a fantastic looking hotel. Love the turntable. I wonder if the young folk know that you have to turn the record over to hear the other side.

There's an Ace Hotel in Seattle, too, and one "opening soon" in New York, both places on my travel hit list for the coming year.

Portland is a favorite spot of mine although I live on the East Coast. You'll want to allot some time to browse Rejuvenations, a store full of furniture, lighting, hardware and lots of salvaged treasures. The International Rose Garden is a great place to rest after browsing boutiques in the nearby Pearl district. Powell Books is a must. And don't go without a stop at Voodoo Donuts for a funky treat.
