I love the Ace Hotel Group. Their digs in Palm Springs is one of my favorite GetMeOutofLA getaways, but nothing can touch an original ~ which is why their hotel in historic downtown Portland makes the perfectly cozy rainy day hotel crush. With rates as low as $155 there is nothing I'd rather do than bundel up in a pendelton blanket, order room serivce and enjoy one of their 79 pet-friendly rooms. Maybe once the cabin fever hits, I'll wander next door to their event space The Cleaners - to catch a DJ or even a live show, but most likely I'll just cuddel up with a good read and a big cup of joe.
Oh, and if the sun happens to shine. Rent a specially-outfitted-for-Portland Swobo bike from the hotel. Its free!
Finally, this link is for the ladies - Check out this adorable ACE wedding featured on their blog!
