THE PERFECT ACE While it may not be fancy in the traditional sense, The Ace Hotel Portland proves that being stylish doesn’t mean that you have to look like Brooks Brothers threw up on you. Photos by Jermy Pelly

Portland Ace Hotel Portland occupies an entire city block, built in 1912, situated in the heart of an emerging neighborhood once known as Portland’s Gay Triangle, bordering on the Pearl District. The building has been a hotel ever since its beginnings, previously operating under the name of the Clyde Hotel. Many of its original details, such as the deep cast-iron roll-top baths and capacious sinks, have been retained and refurbished. With its large windows and high ceilings, the 79-room hotel is characterized by ample proportions, luminous spaces and a reassurinsense of early twentieth century solidity. ”We’re retaining as much of the historical character as possible,” Alex Calderwood explains,”and marrying it with clean lines,”to create a look he describes as, “warm minimalism.”Features restored to their original beauty include polished wood paneling in the lobby, patterned mosaic-tiled flooring and ceiling mouldings. The team at the Ace has also looked to local artists, suppliers and craftsmen for a mix of modern and vintage elements to create a distinctive Ace aesthetic while at the same time being a reflection of the locale. “We really wanted the hotel overall to reflect Portland and the Northwest,” Alex Calderwood explains. In addition to its vibrant music scene, Portland is a hotbed of graphic art talent which draws strongly on a local skateboard/graffiti culture, illustrated comic and zine culture and a hand-made aesthetic. Many artists work with local bands such as The Decemberists, Copy and The Blow, creating visual identities for album covers, websites or concert flyers. Reflecting this strong graphic art culture, Ace Hotel has worked with a group of artists, some local, others international, to create murals in individual rooms

and public spaces within the hotel. Portland is something of a retro mecca — a haven for architects seeking reclaimed building materials, record collectors hunting down second-hand vinyl, or stylists looking for inspiration from retro threads.The Ace team has also sourced lots of quirky vintage elements locally. Elegantly disheveled yet uncluttered,

comfortable and bohemian, not one room in Ace Hotel is alike.One of the most important factors for the Ace team was that rooms should not look like hotel rooms — rather how you might want to have your own home. Comfort was also an important factor, from the choice of mattresses to the roomy sofas. Ranging over three floors, the accommodations offer a variety of options, from giant, airy deluxe rooms costing $250 USD a night, to more inexpensive options — nicknamed ‘band rooms’ for the touring band on a budget— which feature bunk beds and shared baths for only $95 USD. Much larger than its sister hotel in Seattle, Ace Hotel Portland also boasts a coffee shop, a restaurant and a dedicated exhibition and event space on its ground floor. The Cleaners, the event space for the hotel, is situated on one corner of the building and boasts ceiling-high windows that flood the space with natural daylight. Named after the fact that the space was previously occupied by Peacock Drycleaners, the space will feature a regular programme of local and international artists’ work and will also host a regular programme of parties and events. The vast lobby is distinguished by lovingly restored original wood-paneling, patterned mosaic tile flooring and ceiling moldings. So as not to dominate the space, the reception desk is casually arranged and partly hidden behind a floor-to-ceiling lacquered bookshelf offering a fiction library as well as some of Ace Hotel’s retail offerings. The main lobby area is taken up with comfortable seating

in the form of generously proportioned sofas covered invintage army canvas. The smell of freshly ground coffee leads visitors through an open door to the right of the lobby into Stumptown Coffee Roasters, the newest part of an award-winning local coffee chain created by 30-something coffee maestro Duane Sorenson. He not only carefully oversees the roasting and blending of his prized xthem directly from the growers. A door to the left of the lobby leads    through to the restaurant — Clyde Common — a reference to the building’s original name. The warm, open space will feature large, communal tables, an open kitchen and an

extensive, old-school bar. Owners Nate Tilden and Matt Piacentini along with former Ripe and Simpatica chef Jason Barwikowski plan to offer a regional and seasonal take on European peasant food-simple, direct and unexpected. Wooden stairs to the rooms lead up behind the reception desk, passing a mezzanine floor that serves as the hotel’s business lounge. Ace Hotel Portland offers clients free wireless internet access, and for those without laptops, there are communal computers for all to use. An alcove with deep cushioned seating provides a comfy reading area with an eclectic selection of international magazines. The standard hotel format of the bed with

headboard in the middle of the room has been banished. Instead the Ace team has created special ‘softboards’ covered in vintage olive green canvas culled from recycled army ponchos. Fitting between the bed and the wall, they create an extra comfy surface against which to recline or lounge, while allowing a more creative use of the space, with the possibility of putting the bed in the corner of a room, for example, or under a window. Inspired by an old fire exit sign found in the hotel, the team tracked down the Iwin Hodson Co., specialists in embossed metal tags, who, amongst other things, made dog tags for the U.S. Army during World War II. The Irwin

Hodson Co. created all the door numbers and key chains for the hotel, as well as the directional signage and graphics within the building. The Edison light fixture used in the hallways at Ace Hotel Portland is from the locally-based company Schoolhouse Electric, which has been making handmade light fixtures for over 150 years. These fixtures are made in Oregon and Ace hotel Portland is the very first establishment to use this style of fixture. Half of the rooms in the hotel are decorated by artists, the other half will feature artwork generated by Ace Hotel’s in-house graphic team. So far, the hotel has paintings by the following artists: Kenzo Minami, originally from Kobe, Japan, currently resides

in New York City. His distinctive style has resulted in collaborations with Raf Simons, Nike, Flaunt, Visionaire Gallery, Colette, Compost Records, XLR8R and and Ernest Sewn among many others. His exquisite intricate work can be found in room 428. Brent Wick is a local emerging street artist and skateboarder who has worked with Adrenalin Skateboards, Foundation and Slap Magazine as done shows with Anti-Social in Vancouver BC and Auto Gallery in Oakland. Brent is on a mission to make his cat, Larry, famous– Larry is featured in the stunning murals in room 415 and 228 and will also reappear on a deck for skateboard manufacturer Foundation. Ace Hotel Portland will be one of the

first permanent exhibitions of Brent’s work. Music Portland is a vintage vinyl collectors’ mecca — in fact it’s a regular destination for record dealers from Japan who come for long weekends to scour the city’s numerous outlets. Bearing this in mind, Ace Hotel Portland has worked with Music Hall (www.musichallaudio.com) to provide their 14 suites with a turntable so guests can listen to their day’s finds. Manufactured in the Czech Republic in a factory that continued, throughout the Soviet Era, to make high quality turntables, Music Hall’s record players are distinguished by minimal design and incredible sound. Ace Hotel will also have a library of spoken word records, covering everything from children’s stories to foreign fiction.

Budget band rooms.

The budget ‘band rooms’ are decorated with a fun reference to the live music scene in the city, some wallpapered with flyers and posters of recent events by internationallyrespected, locally-based poster artist Mike King, which emphasizes the distinct Portland graphic aesthetic. Over the next few months Ace Hotel Portland will launch the first of a series of compilations which are guest-edited by Northwest bands and DJs which will be available to download at the front desk or on www.popboutique.com, a new music download website which is being created by Ace Hotel’s partner company, Neverstop. An army surplus theme continues with the use of reconditioned field-desks forming a basis for desks in some of the rooms. Ace Hotel Portland appreciates that sometimes guests need a little space to spread out their laptop and papers, so many of the rooms feature long desks made from salvaged timber. The mattresses were sourced from an awardwinning company Suitesleep, using their environmentally-friendly Greensleep range. They are constructed of 100% organic natural rubber latex which has excellent durability, elasticity and stability as well as heat and moisture regulation. In larger rooms, roomy sofas (which also function as day beds) are

MANNER | THE PERFECT ACE

covered in the same vintage canvas as the softboards. Vintage elements in rooms include the use of old wooden apple boxes (a classic photo studio prop) and stacks of characterful second-hand books as bedside tables, while U.S. domestic mailbags with their distinctive printed graphics have been requisitioned as laundry bags. While researching blankets the Ace team came across Pendleton Woolen Mills, a Portland firm that’s over 100 years old specialising in premier woolen products. Between the ‘30s and ‘50s Pendleton created custom logo wool blankets for many hotels,a concept long since forgotten by the hotel industry. The Ace persuaded Pendleton to revisit this idea and collaboration has resulted in custom wool blankets whose colours and graphics givea vintage feel. They feature a local icon: the infamous statue of the Thompson Elk from the heart of downtown Portland. Bathrooms feature the original cast-iron roll-top baths and sinks, restored and reconditioned, which date back to the hotel’s 1912 origins. Floor-to-ceiling shower curtains make a feature of the hotel’s high ceilings. The Ace team are a curious hybrid — romantics with an unswerving business savvy, easy-going yet ultra-professional. They’re

not interested in cooler-than-thou design statements, but in creating a hotel with soul. In doing so, they’ve tapped into what a growing market of cultural influencers and opinion leaders want, and inadvertently created their own marketing machine. Any new hotel can make bold statements and win PR hype when it launches — but it takes word of mouth recommendations to make a business flourish. It wasn’t long before Time Magazine nominated the Ace team as “the next wave” of hoteliers in a list of 100 innovators.

THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR

A look inside Danner Boots, the story behind the recent release of their Stumptown collection and the collaborative boot with Tanner Goods by way of conversation with Matt Schnieder and Sam Huff.

A name synonymous with superior craftsmanship, Danner Boots has been making top quality footwear for over seventy years. Originally built for the trail or the work force, Danner footwear has found it’s way onto a more discerning customer as of late. After gaining a leading reputation for making some of the world’s toughest boots, a growing number of people have adopted them for everyday wear as they seek that

same enduring quality. This month, the Portland, Oregon based boot makers released their first ever Stumptown collection, a beautiful range of boots which appeals to the more aesthetically minded customer without sacrificing any of their legendary durability. Within that line is the Mountain Light Lownsdale, a special make up of boot made in collaboration with fellow Portland company Tanner Goods.

We sat down Matt Schneider, one of the main brains behind Stumptown as well as Sam Huff of Tanner Goods, to talk about the new product line as well as the Lownsdale.

Matt Schneider

How did you decide on which models you were going to make with Stumptown then? How have you guys approached the design  process for the line? MS: With Stumptown we started out right away with two of our iconic styles, the Mountain Light and Danner Light originals because those are really what this is all founded on. From there we added what we call the Mountain Light Stark and the Mountain Light Overton and then the thought process there was that people want a lighter weight boot. They’re not wanting to necessarily go hike in this product exclusively, but rather just walk around town in and use in everyday life — something that’ll go with their work shirt or high quality denim and embrace that lifestyle and that’s where Stumptown has evolved from. After that we looked back at our catalogues and wanted to create a product similar to that of what we had in the 1970s. That ended up being what we call the Mountain Trail Light. A big reason for it was that it’s a leather lined boot, which isn’t something that we do much of so we’re really excited about

it. We’re just loving going out into the factory and playing with the materials on all of these boots and hopefully the result is something that our customers like too. Basically the relationship we have with the factory and it being so close and being able to talk to workers like Alfredo who’s been there for 39 years, and asking him things like “hey this felt and this leather, can they go together? Do we need to back it with anything? How can we come up with this in a comfortable way?”So that’s how we’ve been ‘designing’ new things. We’re just using different materials in new ways for us and that’s how we’re going to be going forward in the next little while. We’re really excited though because we’ve got another developer working with us on new styles and patterns for the future so we can start to think more long term. Before Stumptown then, I can’t imagine you were bringing in too many different leathers. It must have been the same stock hides that you’ve been using for however long right? MS: Yeah and that’s been the biggest challenge to us as a company, really going out there and getting all the different leathers. Luckily we’ve been able to partner up with people like Tanner Goods and understand where they’re getting leathers from and some of the suppliers we can go forward with in the future. How did that relationship with Tanner Goods come about? MS: They actually came on board way before Stumptown ever existed. They started out with one of those original styles in their shop. Sam Huff: Yeah it was the Mountain Light, which is such a beautiful silhouette. You don’t really need to re-design that because it’s such a classic. MS: Yeah the Mountain Light is really the iconic boot. About 5 years ago it just started to swing up and there was a drastic increase for it. Really it was just because of people looking at the Made in the USA story and people wanting that classic vintage look.

Danner has been making great boots for so long, what brought about the Stumptown collection now? Can you tell me a bit about how it came to be? Matt Schneider: We’ve been offering this product in Japan for a while now and the world is getting smaller with blogs, no place is an island anymore. We’ve been getting requests for our products in the USA. So we decided to come up with a more global product line and so that’s what we did. The emphasis of the line is that it’s made here in Portland, hence the Stumptown name. Before we got the go ahead for the Stumptown line, we had a couple of other lifestyle products but they weren’t really under any direction. They usually came mostly just from an assortment of random leftover leathers that we’d finish off if we thought they’d look good on certain models.

Tell me about the Mountain Light Lownsdale, the boot that you guys came up with together. What’s the story behind it? SH: Well around the same time as we brought Danner into the shop we had just started talking about implementing Horween leather into our own line on a broader scope because it has such nice character — the rich colours and it has that really nice pull up. For us as a company, we want to design or manufacture something that someone is going to hold onto for a long time and part of that story is having the leather really age beautifully and show a lot of the characteristics from just everyday wear and tear stuff. Horween leather speaks to that longevity, you can see the colour get richer and the little nicks and scrapes that give it character. It’s kind of like, why would someone want to come and get a boot re-soled? Because they love the way the leather looks. So we went to Danner and proposed using the Horween leather that we were going to be using in our own line in hopes of making a collaborative boot that was going to speak to the heritage of Danner as well as the aesthetics that we appeal to at Tanner Goods.

It’s great because it’s such a natural and honest union, did you guys face any serious challenges at all when you where working on the project? SH: I guess for us it was taking that great character and and pairing it together with that classic silhouette as well as maybe changing the outsole to really try and do something that’s a little more unique. The biggest part of that I suppose was choosing the colourway. The most popular outsoles on boots right now seem to be big chunky black hiking soles and or the white Christy sole, so we wanted something in between. We looked at what our Tanner Goods colour story was going tobe, and on the boot we wanted more of a natural earth tone so we went with the really deep olive thats almost brown looking.

MANNER | THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR STUMPIN’

What’s nice though is that with Horween you get these darker finishes and as it ages you get the pull up in the leather and that’s when the colour underneath really starts to show. With the tan outsole it’s something that looks “Northwest” to us but is still pretty wearable in a metro environment which I think is a nice happy medium MS: Before the Tanner boot we had mostly been using leathers that had a PU coating on it. We were so used to working with police forces and stuff where they had to have a polishable toe. It needed to be uniform. So we had to look at all of these leathers where each hide is different because each cow is different. SH: I think that’s where a lot of the beauty in leather comes from. It’s the character of the actual leather itself and not trying to make it look like a synthetic material. It’s a natural material and some of the beauty is in its imperfections. MS: We needed to touch on that by using a leather that was more natural and had those imperfections as well as our standards for waterproofing, all while keeping it a lightweight product. In the end, the actual process ended up being pretty simple because both sides had such good ideas in mind when we got together. What was so appealing about this special makeup of Stumptown boot is that we just really wanted to combine what the two companies stand for — and that is classic hand-made, high quality goods that will last through the decades.
