Boutique Hotels in Portland, OR
Saying that the Ace Hotel in Portland's Pearl District is 'cool' hardly even conveys its greatness. With only four locations in the entire country, Portland is lucky to have an Ace. Each room at the Ace Hotel is distinctively different with its own sense of style -- from a huge floor to ceiling wallpaper cat to record players with a vintage vinyl collection, it will be hard to pick which one to stay in. You won't want to miss the dining options around the Ace which include Stumptown Coffee (perfect for a magazine and delicious latte), Clyde Common (with communal tables for meeting some locals) and Kenny and Zuke's (for grabbing lunch to go on the way out to explore the city).
What used to be an old motor inn is now one of the hippest boutique hotels in Portland, The Jupiter Hotel is a fantastic place to stay. Each one of The Jupiter's 81 rooms is beautifully decorated with an eye for simplistic modern design, while still offering the plush comforts of five star resorts. Check out their Distillery Package which includes a day-pass to the neighboring distilleries and a $20 gift certificate to spend while touring. The inside scoop on The Jupiter is that it is a party hotel, so don't book a room here with the hopes of having a quiet, relaxing night away -- bring your best party shoes and expect to have a good time!
