Offering a vibe that's more Cary Grant than Carrie Brownstein, Hotel DeLuxe planted it's old-school Hollywood feel smack dab in downtown, so you can jump on the streetcar or stumble home from a Timbers game at nearby Jeld-Wen Field, then kick it at one of their two in-house restaurants.
Whether you're in town for business, pleasure, or some combination of the two, the Jupiter Hotel is definitely one of PDX's best bets. With a prime location that's minutes from downtown, the convention center, the Pearl District, and the Rose Garden, plus dog-friendly policies and rooms that are chic & modern (flat screens, pop art posters, minimalist furniture), you should just go ahead and book now.
Located smack in the middle of downtown outside Pioneer Courthouse Square (a.k.a., "Portland's Living Room") The Nines is like a city unto itself, with art hanging on every wall, two high-end restaurants w/ equally high-end bars, and enough comfy nooks and crannies for you to explore the building all day and not see the same lobby twice.
A former elementary school, Kennedy School has been converted into a swanky hotel that features 57 guest rooms, a restaurant, a movie theater and a brewery. If that last part piqued your interest, you'll be delighted to know that there's a selection of standards and seasonals to rival any non-hotel-based craft breweries in the area.
Filled with locally sourced artwork and with each room boasting its own theme, there are about as many options for room types available at the Ace Hotel Portland as there are craft beers made in Portland. Almost.
Established in 1905, The White Eagle Saloon and Hotel blends stories of both fact and fiction from its past and now offers modern day travelers a venue for local-area music. The beds are located right above the venue so keep rocking with the band until they shut the place down, then get your rest.
You can make new friends with hotel guests at the complimentary wine and beer tasting from 5-6pm and then continue your evening at the upscale happy hour located in-house. Check out Hotel Monaco and its 221 luxury hotel rooms and suites located in the heart of downtown Portland.
Where most people associate "vintage" in Portland with purchasing dead people's clothes at wholesale prices, Hotel Vintage Plaza is just a throwback to the old-school hotel experience, where you can fine-dine in an award-winning restaurant, then take in spectacular city views while being pampered by in-room massages or sipping Champers in a hot tub.
Proof that all artists aren't starving, this Artists' Loft on Airbnb is the ultimate bachelor pad, with a crazy view of the skyline, a fully stocked bar, and one thousand square feet of space to do with whatever you want. So long as it's not pretend to be Jackson Pollock.
