There is no shortage of great places to spend the night or even an entire week in Portland. Whether you are visiting for business or for pleasure, here are some of the classiest and stylish hotels in the city.
Embassy Suites by Hilton Portland-Downtown
A perfect location downtown makes this the right choice for exploring the downtown area of Portland. The hotel offers spacious 2-room suites that give you plenty of space for relaxing or working. The hotel has all of the amenities you expect such as a fitness center, an indoor heated pool, a whirlpool, and a great restaurant. Added special surprises include the fact that your free daily breakfast is cooked-to-order, and there are packages that give you a room that overlooks Voodoo Doughnuts and hand delivery to your room, so you don’t have to wait outside for your morning treat.
This stunning boutique hotel features many signature and luxury amenities. It starts with little comforts like your own choice of pillow, so you can leave yours at home and still be comfortable. Also, this pet-centric hotel has beds and bowls available for your furry travel companions, and they even have a list of pet services like dog walkers. Starting in June, the 19th Hole reopened for summer. This is a pop-up mini golf course that features a food truck and a beer garden. Plus, if you want to get around town in luxury, you can reserve the hotel’s Rolls-Royce limo. And the rooftop film festival will be back in action from July 14 – August 25, 2016.
The Heathman Hotel
The Heathman has all of the classic amenities you expect and is another pet–friendly option. However, you’ll be hard pressed to find another hotel with a private library like the one here. More than 2,700 books, signed by everyone from Pulitzer Prize winners to former US Presidents make it a one of a kind experience for bibliophiles. There’s a tea lounge that features live entertainment Wed-Sat nights with jazz musicians. Plus, there are multiple bed options to meet your sleeping comfort needs.
This downtown hotel is also known for its location, but there are also a few extras that set it apart from the rest. For example, spring for a balcony room on floors 2 through 5 (with either a king bed or two queens) and your room will feature French doors that open onto a Juliet balcony. BeeKind products are featured in guest bathrooms. And you will want to check out Swank (the hotel restaurant) and Swine (a moonshine and whiskey bar).
Inn at Northup Station
This is a very eclectic and modern hotel with a retro look and a rooftop terrace. Complimentary streetcar tickets are provided as an amenity. Plus, there are tons of special offers if you want to add to your stay—like the food lovers package that gets you a 20% discount on the “Alphabet District” food tour through Forktown Food Tours.
A newly renovated lobby and a free craft beer hour help round out our list with Hotel Lucia. And the free drinks don’t stop at beer if you prefer tea or coffee which are always available. You also get a combination of amenities available from some of the hotels listed above such as pet beds, bowls, and services, delivery of Salt and Straw ice cream, and your choice of pillow on request. Hotel Lucia is home to the world’s largest permanent collection of black and white photographs by Pulitzer prize-winning photographer and native Oregonian, David Hume Kennerly. Hotel Lucia is also the proud home to some of Portland’s most acclaimed dining and craft cocktails courtesy of James Beard Award-winner and Iron Chef America champion Vitaly Paley who opened Imperial and Portland Penny Diner at Hotel Lucia in late 2012.
