Yes, as other reviewers have mentioned before me, the rooms at Ace Hotel Portland are not the warmest (temperature-wise) out there. I guess it has to do with the hotel being in an old building. But I had a great sleep in the somewhat colder room.
The design of the hotel is marvellous: I loved it! Minimalistic chic, starting with the reception area: a place you want to hang out in all day. Our room was very well designed, with some 'strange' things compared to what you might be used to compared with other hotels (for instance the sink next to the bed in stead of in the bathroom), but it worked. And I loved the old fashioned bathtub, which had a great shower and lovely shampoo, etc. But yes, this is not a hotel for everybody, you have to be a bit into design to appreciate the rooms fully. This is not a regular hotel!
The location is very central. Just a few blocks away from the Pearl district, but also from the more downtown/shopping area. We could walk almost everywhere.
We also had a lovely dinner at the hotels' restaurant, Clyde Common. Great food.
I would definitely stay here again.
