As you can imagine, life has been a bit crazy lately. We are 2 months away from the wedding. In the past, D and I have taken an early spring vacation. Las Vegas, Palm Springs etc. This is why we chose our wedding date- to keep that tradition alive. Well this Portland weather is making me want Palm Springs right now.
In order to keep things simple in the weeks leading up to the big day, we thought a staycation was a better idea. When AC Hotel Portland reached out to me about a stay at their new Portland location- we loved the idea.
AC Hotel Portland
AC Hotels is a modern lifestyle brand by Marriott. Portland is one of the first US cities to welcome an AC Hotel as the European-style brand expands its footprint. With design inspired by founder Antonio Catalán, a Spanish hotelier, the AC Hotel brand is focused on thoughtful contemporary design where everything has a purpose. The 13-story hotel includes an open space bar and lounge with Portland’s own Water Avenue coffee, craft cocktails featuring local ingredients on tap and a selection of tapas-inspired small plates.
The location of AC Hotel Portland is perfect for visitors. It’s very centrally located and walking distance to shopping, shows, and wonderful food. During our stay we had lunch at Luc Lac Kitchen. A main stay on the Portland food scene. We also strolled over to Powell’s books. It’s nice to be a visitor in your own city. Spend a weekend trying old favorites and exploring new things. It was a relaxing, entertaining and “Portland” weekend.
Huge thanks to AC Hotel Portland for hosting us. The new hotel is lovely!
