So hip it hurts. So come here with an open heart. I loved everything about the Ace Hotel. The lobby with a photo booth, old carpeted and painfully slow elevator, long daunting hallways and dormitory (esque) room plastered in concert posters. I loved that we shared a bathroom and used beautiful hair products. I loved the scene around the hotel with the cinema and cinematic vibe and the proximity to Chinatown's edginess. I was obsessed with the comfort of my bed while unsure as to the constant hum in the night. Ironies. This hotel is for those that appreciate purposeful imperfection mixed with perfection. I'm 39.
Now, my 14 year old son thought he would lose it if he saw one more person in rolled up pants. Our generation gap spoke loudly at this location. He couldn't stand all the hipsters, hipness and vintage mixed with luxury. He thought the photobooth was "try hard" and the room too budget. Though he certainly enjoyed the Dutch stroup waffles in the mini bar! If you go to the Ace Hotel, be less of a hipster critique and more of a museum goer. This is really the heart-start of Portland and the culture that my son's generation will rebel against.
