These newcomers give you a whole new reason to visit their respective city centers—yet they command a trip all on their own.

1. Hotel Eastlund, Portland, Oregon

1 of 18

Open since June, this 168-room hotel is anchored by cups of Ristretto Roasters’ coffee and flaky croissants at a ground-floor café and bakery (Citizen Baker, from chef David Machado, also linked to Nel Centro) and 16 taps for local beers at the rooftop Altabira City Tavern, which boasts sweeping skyline views. The lobby’s hip-and-mod vibe features furnishings in tropical-fruit hues and wall murals against a heather-grey backdrop. Back in the rooms are walk-in showers, 40-inch Smart HD TVs, and a Keurig coffeemaker—punched up with fuzzy leopard-print blankets and geometric-patterned pillows. To explore beyond the Lloyd District, you need only hop on the streetcar or MAX Light Rail, just outside your temporary digs.
