BUSPASS: Brittany Powell – Portland
July 1, 2008
One of our featured artists, Brittany Powell, recommended we stay at either the Jupiter: a very hip, renovated motel; The Ace Hotel on Stark St., or the Mark and Spenser hotel right across from The Ace. We settled on the latter, even though less aesthetically interesting than the Ace, only because they provided us with a better media rate. Otherwise, any three of those listed seem like good choices in great locations. The staff at Mark and Spenser were particularly helpful and accommodating. Convenient parking (although $16.00/night, less than the $20..00 the Ace was charging). The hotel has a lot of character too AND it was clean and roomy, as though those notions were foreign to each other from time to time. Which they often seem to be.
All in all,
Great couple of days in P-town (do they call it that? They should if they don’t. P-town.)
