Hotels in Portland, OR
Portland’s eclectic urban charm is reflected in the variety of hotels the city has to offer – luxury accommodations, small boutique hotels and B&Bs featuring local works of art, spa resorts in the Willamette Valley, and hostel options for hip young travelers on a shoestring budget. From quaint to extravagant, here are a few of our favorite hotels in Portland:
Portland’s historic Heathman Hotel, located in downtown Portland is a luxury boutique hotel with an interior that merges Italian architecture with postmodern works of art, including an impressive collection of Andy Warhol lithographs. This Portland hotel is perfectly suited for lovers of the arts, as it’s adjacent to the Portland Center for the Performing Arts, as well as the Portland Art Museum and Portland’s designated Cultural District. Another beloved Portland hotel is the Hotel Monaco Portland, a luxury boutique hotel that offers modern amenities with a rustic-chic interior. Environmentally conscious travelers might want to stay at The Nines, a luxury hotel in Portland that received LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification for its efforts providing renewable energy and recycling, as well as an in-house organic restaurant, Urban Farmers Steakhouse. For a pampering spa getaway, stay just outside the city at the Allison Inn and Spa, located on 35 acres in the lush Willamette Valley Wine Country. The hotel’s 12 spa treatment rooms will prep you for a relaxing day sampling wines from the hotel’s onsite vineyard.
Designed to resemble a grand Victorian seaside hotel (but with a Northwest craftsman style—it was actually built in the early 80’s), the waterfront RiverPlace easily has the city’s best Willamette River views.
To see the future of green design, take a close look at the Nines (as in “dressed to the…”), set on the top floors of the former Meier & Frank department store overlooking Portland’s Pioneer Square.
San Francisco has the Phoenix. Los Angeles has the Standard Hotel. Now Portland has the rock star–worthy Jupiter Hotel.
Old Hollywood-style glamour pervades this elegant, slightly-off-the-beaten-path hotel; you’ll feel it from the moment you ascend the wide marble steps into the grand lobby, with its ornately carved moldings and coffered ceilings.
Classically styled Italianate property attached to the Concert Hall, with Art Deco interiors and one of the city's best restaurants.The standard rooms are on the smallish side and have a quaint but modern feel.
Set on the edge of Portland’s slightly raffish but endearingly funky Alberta Arts District, this 35-room property occupies a former elementary school built in 1915.
This 14-story hotel with brick siding dates to 1913 in downtown Portland, featuring premium century-old elements like Italian marble, Austrian crystal chandeliers, and Russian walnut.
Hip hotel with black-and-white photos on display and a quirky Thai room-service menu for late-night cravings.
The Portland outpost of the Kimpton group’s Monaco brand sits along a busy downtown stretch that, while lacking in curb appeal, provides easy access to the riverfront and Portland Saturday Market, and is walking distance from the Pearl District and Old Town.
This is pure Portland: creative, authentic, irreverent. Rooms in the revamped 1912 hotel are decorated with murals and fitted with vintage claw-foot tubs; bedside tables are fashioned from secondhand tomes (the famous Powell’s Books is just down the block).
Oenophiles appreciate this Kimpton group beauty, which offers wine-themed accommodations in a stately, 1894 downtown building.
The only boutique lodging option in the trendy Nob Hill neighborhood, Northrup Station is one of those easily missed gems that even locals may not realize is a hotel.
