Vacation and a friend’s wedding.
My best friend & I
View of Portland from the room.
Musical mural & one of the comfiest beds I've had the pleasure of sleeping in.
Sliding barn door shows off the old-timey tub & leaves the whole room feeling warm, open, and friendly.
Clyde Common - one of the best restaurants in Portland, no doubt about it.
Open kitchen setup in Clyde Common so you can watch the masters at work.
The bar is home to some of the best handcrafted cocktails and local brews.
Notepad & pencil (that came home with me), the room service menu, and a variety of magazines.
Simple but effective mini bar.
MALIN + GOETZ is invigorating. If they weren't locked in, these would have come home with me too.
Floor 1.5 - this is the only time I saw it empty. Great for studying, reading, or just hanging out with friends.
The lobby always had people hanging around, sipping on some Stumptown or getting in the vintage photo booth.
Lots of space. A great big couch to collapse on after walking around the city or having some friends over before heading out for the night.
The Ace is known for its cool collaborations, and you can buy some of the Portland merch right here by the concierge. (I bought myself the sweatshirt, but couldn't justify the robe, regardless of how great it is).
The Ace Portland.
Highs + Lows
Very friendly, very cool staff. Helpful and more than willing to share recommendations.
The design & vibe of the hotel was incredible. A very comforting, nostalgic style but young and adventurous all the same.
I fell in love with the room the very first night, when I put on the robe and laid in bed. Even more so when I noticed how many open outlets there were for charging our phones/iPads/cameras/etc. without having to unplug a lamp or move a night stand.
Some of the best of Portland is right downstairs: Clyde Common restaurant & bar and Stumptown Coffee Roasters. All equally of the highest quality & greatest taste.
The restaurant was pretty strict about their menu & substitutions. They take their food pretty seriously... but I can understand why, the food is incredible!
The cleaning staff did a great job with the room, but I was surprised to see our dirty, used glasses from the restaurant still in the room from the day before.

Very hip(ster). Young, sustainable, handcrafted, vintage retro x contemporary cool.
Historical Downtown Portland. Near tons of shopping, bars, & restaurants. Walking (or biking) distance to pretty much everything.
- Year Opened
- Designed By
Historical building designed & decorated by various artists, local & international.
More of a cool, young crowd. They do allow pets though!
If I were Goldilocks, the ACE would be my baby bear. Room options for all kinds of budgets.
