Check into the pet-friendly Ace to fully appreciate the city’s take on urban chic. The blocklong historic property has been
renovated into a 78-room magnet for youthful creative types, perfectly positioned downtown on the edge of the Pearl District—just
steps from the famed Powell’s Books flagship. An ethos of reuse and local pride is embedded in the retro details: original
murals by homegrown artists, Pendleton wool blankets on platform beds, apple-crate stepping stools next to claw-foot tubs,
and some with turntables and vintage vinyl records available on loan from the lobby.
