Ace Hotel Portland Reviews
Great hotel, downtown Portland Jul 28, 2010
This is not your typical chain hotel. It's quite different and not in a bad sense either. The rooms are minimal (at least the one we stayed in) but very comfortable and clean. We booked through Hotwire and were not paying attention so we booked a queen with shared bathroom by mistake. We tried to correct that point before we departed but the hotel was not forthcoming through e-mail. That's why we were a bit weary. But the Ace hotel didn't dissappoint at all.
The shared bathroom was one door down the hall, with big stacks of towels and it was most of all very big and clean! We didn't encounter any other guests, either at the bathroom or in the hallway, which made us wonder about the occupancy. There is a big lounge, with electricity outlets everywhere. Very convenient if you want to use your laptop! The best coffee in town is right next door (Stumptown Coffee Company) and there is a direct access from the hotel itself. Breakfast is also conveniently close by at the Deli at the corner. Very good service and great breakfast! But the main point we booked this hotel is because it was very close by Powell's City bookstore. Only a 5 minutes walk (if you walk slowly).
We payed $95.00 per night per room during high season, for a queen with shared bathroom.

Ace Hotel Portland Overview
Ace Hotel Portland is a small hotel in historical downtown Portland, Oregon, near PSU and the Pearl District. We are blocks from Powell's Books and within walking distance of the many cultural districts. You can also take public transportation to see other popular attractions like the Trailblazers, the Rose Garden, or the Rose Festival.
Ace has a penchant for organic, authentic, unique design. Although we have been called a boutique hotel and a hip hotel, we're not sure what that really means. We're a little modern, and a little bohemian. Our rooms are pet-friendly (which basically means dog-friendly), so we encourage you to bring the whole family.
Our 79 rooms have many eco-friendly, sustainable, and green elements, like vintage furniture, low-VOC paints and recycled materials throughout. Our accommodations offer simple luxury for cheap -- each room features nuanced, botanical products from Malin+Goetz apothecary, and most have art by local and international artists.
Room service and free wi-fi are available, too. And we also offer free rental bikes for getting around the city. You can take classic black and white analog photos in the photobooth we have in the lobby, but you might have to wait in line.
Get a glimpse into the Portland happy hour scene at Clyde Common, a bar and restaurant adjacent to the lobby. It's open late and their food and drink are some of the best in the city. We also have music events with DJs and bands at the Cleaners, our event space next door. The Cleaners is also available for rent for corporate events, weddings, or parties.
