Ace is in the newly revitalized Warehouse District. Designed by Roman and Williams, hotel rooms come with high ceilings, an underrated benefit of industrial spaces, as well as a mix of vintage-style fixtures, authentic vintage furniture, and locally sourced artwork. Ace’s reputation is built, more than anything else, on genuinely lively, inviting public spaces. Josephine Estelle, the restaurant, isn’t just beautiful, it’s headed by James Beard nominees Andy Ticer and Michael Hudman, who masterfully marry Italian cooking and Southern flavors. The first Stumptown café in the South keeps guests and locals fueled up on third-wave coffee.
