Can't wait to return!
Posted May 19, 2010
This quirky, fun hotel was perfect for my 3 day get away. I stayed in a room with 2 double beds, as three friends were with me. We fit comfortably (the beds were surprisingly luxerious, especially the pillows).
The bathroom could be awkward if you were staying with people you didnt know well, since the door was very thin. Noises from the street were common (we were right over Stark) but this wasn't a problem for us since we were out very late each night. If you want a quieter room try asking for one near the back and higher up.
Located in the heart of SW Portland, The Ace Hotel is the perfect location to see the city. It is nestled between Clyde Commons, Pete & Zuke's, and Stumptown Coffee (which are well known for good reason!). It is minutes from Pioneer Courthouse Square, The Portland Art Museum, and the Max line as well.
The staff were all extremely curteous, and very friendly. The Ace has a great vibe, and lots of local creative types make it their study area. Be sure to check out the upstairs lobby-there is an IMac for your use, and an old library card cataluge full of fun secrets!
Overall I had an incredible experience, and would highly reccomend this place to anyone looking to get off the beaten path and enjoy a little hipster hospitality.
