Ace Hotel in Portland!

The now infamous Ace Hotel of Seattle is expanding into Portland! And let me tell you, if you don’t know about the Ace Hotel you really had better ask somebody. I did a write up on the Ace before, so I don’t need to rehash all of it…but, it is hands down the coolest hotel I have ever stayed in. 24 rooms of perfect design and execution and Portland, you guys get 55 rooms, yesir. I’m not 100% sure when the Portland location opens, but keep your eyes peeled for real. I can’t wait to see what they come up with. Also…check us in a couple weeks for the full feature/interview on Alex Calderwood, The Ace Hotel, Rudy’s Barbershop, Neverstop, and the whole empire. Shout out to Alex! Stay tuned.
