After my holiday announcements for San Francisco and Seattle, it is time to tell you also about my planned visit to the birthplace of hipsters and Kinfolk magazine, to über-cool Portland in Oregon. I am so so excited to visit this city as it's been on my travel wish list for quite a long time.
I am equally excited as I will be staying in one of the coolest hotels in town - the ACE Hotel. The hotel is known for its cool design where each room has its own character and style. Moreover, it hosts the fab restaurant Clyde Common and is perfectly located to discover Portland by foot. Or bike for that matter, as the hotel offers free bikes to its guests. Yay!
Located in downtown Portland, it is just around the corner of the world's largest bookstore Powell's Books and the Northwest Pacific's landmark coffee shop Stumptown Coffee. They also serve Stumptown French Press for breakfast and that is all my coffee loving heart needs to know. Most everything served in the hotel is locally sourced or homemade, so another big plus for the ace among Portland hotels.
I can't wait to stay there soon and will make sure to report back here on the blog about my personal experience in the Ace Hotel and Portland in general. By the way, I will also travel to Vancouver in Canada, but I am short of pics of the cool airbnb home where I will be staying, so I will report on Vancouver upon my return. Happy week, friends!
