Neato Hotel Recommendations

Hello hello DPers--I need some help.

The Boyfriend and I are heading to Portland the first weekend in April for a concert and I was hoping to book a hotel room and make it a short vacation-y romantic thing. I immediately thought of the Ace because it's close to Powell's, has a Stumptown, is kind of funky, etc, etc, blahblahblah.

However, the Ace has a 2 night minimum that weekend (no clue why), which we don't need. They said they might open up individual nights later on if it doesn't book up, but it's not guaranteed.

The only other hotel I can think of that's kind of like the Ace is the Jupiter Hotel. So my questions are:

-How does Jupiter compare to the Ace? Better, worse, similarities, differences?
The rooms with the murals look interesting...


-Ok, Jupiter's out, so how are the McMenamin's hotels? Kennedy School and White Eagle

-Are there any other similar hotels in the city I could look at?
I love the fact that Powell's and some other cool stuff is walkable from the Ace, but transportation isn't really an issue.



Thanks in advance!
