Spent 2 nights at the Ace Hotel in Portland and really enjoyed it. It is quite different to the hotels I am used to staying in, but glad we tried it and would happily go back. Staff were very friendly and always made us feel welcome. They also had some good recommendations for places close by to eat and drink.
We shared a Standard Front Double room with another couple for the 2 nights. We had 2 double beds (facing each other rather than next to each other which I think was better). The beds were extremely comfortable and we were not bothered with any noise. There was a door that covered the window completely like blackout curtains would - perfect for a good night sleep.
There was a basin in the room (outside of the bathroom) which made it easier for getting ready when someone was in the bathroom. The bathroom was my only complaint - the wooden door did not shut completely, and noise travelled straight from the bathroom, so you could not shower without waking everyone up.
The location of the hotel was excellent. Portland is a very easy city to walk and we left our car in the parking lot for our whole stay. There are so many great cafes and bars in the area, we loved the food and craft beer/cider. Lots of great cocktails as well!
Voodoo Doughnuts is definitely a must in Portland, but beware the line ups are long. We went to the one outside of town and only had to wait a few minutes.
Overall, I enjoyed the Ace Hotel, even though it is so different to hotels we usually stay in and would stay there again.
