The Ace Hotel

Photobucket

This week Sam and I stayed at The Ace Hotel for a couple of nights, for our second wedding anniversary. It's actually not until next week, but seeing as I'll be gone on a roadtrip with Coedith and her family at that time, we celebrated early :)

The hotel itself is fantastic, if I remember correctly it used to be a really run down apartment building. Within the past few years it was bought and updated into a trendy, Portlandy hotel. They kept the structure pretty much as it was, the old wooden stairs, the rickety elevator. But the modern updates have a vintage edge.

Our room had a clawfoot tub, wine cooler, record player, and great view. I kept saying how much kitty would love it there, with all the people watching :)

They serve a nice breakfast in the morning, with fruits, cheeses, cold meats, and jams. Wish I ate breakfast like that everyday! And the lobby has a nice lounge area, photobooth, and loft area with a computer, books, and comfy chairs.

So basically, we had a great time :)

This is such a beautiful hotel! My boyfriend and are thinking of doing a road trip to the west of Canada and into the States in August if everything pans out work wise. I will defiantly be trying to get reservations here if we make it out west.
I hope you guys had a wonderful celebration of your love and safe travels!
Much Love,
Crystal

You are an absolute doll! I love your style and the way you can make vintage look modern....and mostly that you aren't afraid to rock it in public!

So fun...... :)
