Portland's Über Cool Ace Hotel

 We arrived in Portland yesterday to sunny skies and temperatures above 30 degrees. I haven't felt heat like that in a while. So far, we are completely loving it here.

The Ace Hotel is über cool. It's quite the little hipster hang out... perhaps a little too much so for my husband's liking (seems like every male in the lobby is wearing skinny jeans and has a wild moustache)... but he's liking it anyway ; )

As for me, it's the little details about this hotel that have me smitten... like the wool Pendelton elk blankets on the bed, the clawfoot tub and soap-on-a-rope, the record player in our room and it's fabulous selection of records...

I love the hotel lobby with it's vintage photobooth, and the fact that there are Leonard Cohen lyrics printed on the wall....

And of course that there's a Stumptown coffee right off the main lobby.
(I love that it says "good luck" under the coffee cups!)

We were so tired last night that we ended up eating dinner at the restaurant next door, Clyde Common, and we're so glad we did because it was incredible! I love how everyone sits at long communal tables.

So far so good, on this little vacation of ours.
Happy Monday to you all.
