Ace Hotel in Portland is partnering with The Impossible Project -- producers of new instant film for classic Polaroid cameras -- to keep the art of instant analog photography alive.

Each guest room at the hotel is now stocked with a refurbished Polaroid camera and limited edition, custom packs of instant black and white film in the mini-bar.

Custom film and cameras are also available through Ace's online shop and at select niche retail shops worldwide including The Impossible Project Spaces in Vienna, Tokyo and New York.

Guests can share their Polaroid shots, from fleeting to scenic, courtesy of an online gallery.

A similar initiative is under way at Ace Hotels in New York, Palm Springs and Seattle.
