The DNA: The hip Ace Hotel is located in Portland’s downtown Pearl District, just a block from world-famous Powell’s City of Books. From a photo booth in the lobby to record players in the higher-end rooms, visitors are immersed in the Portland hipster experience. This property opened in 1912 as the Clyde Hotel, was briefly the Ben Stark, and then became an Ace. The Clyde’s style lives on in the beige brick exterior, odd, narrow lift, and the fact that many rooms lack private bathrooms. The hotel’s Clyde Common restaurant features long communal tables and an open kitchen. Guests can also have a cup of coffee from the hotel’s Stumptown Coffee or a bagel from Kenny & Zuke’s.
