Highs & Lows

  • Cozy, clean, minimally stylish rooms, a great restaurant and stellar music venue make it the perfect place to shack up for a weekend in Portland.

  • The staff, like most people we met in Portland, are above and beyond friendly and helpful in the most genuine way.

  • Doug Fir Lounge - seriously great music venue right outside your door.

  • Our room was positioned in what was meant to be the property's quieter "chill zone", but it's hard to muffle the constant partying going on outside. Then again, why would you want to?

  • Would love to have seen some locally produced snacks in the mini bar!

  • Girl Alert: no full length mirrors in the rooms.

Important Bits

  • Type

    A mid-century motor inn in a boutique hotel's body.

  • Vibe

    So friendly, so cool, so rock n' roll and SO Portland.

  • Location

    In Portland's fast developing, furiously hip Industrial District. Tons of great vintage shops, bars & restaurants within walking or biking distance.

  • Rooms

    80

  • Music

    Doug Fir Lounge is one of Portland's best music venues. How fun to be able to stumble out of a concert and into your room? The sound is incredible, and the space is intimate...even a sold out show isn't packed to the gills.

  • Year Opened

    2004

  • Designed By

    The owners, Tod Breslau and Kelsey Bunker.

  • Pool/Gym

    No - but they have nice bikes for rent (and this is the bike-friendliest town of all)...and they offer $15 passes to the nearby Portland Rock Gym.

  • Restaurant

    Doug Fir. Imagine a modernized HoJo's (in the best way possible) with a variety of delish comfort foods like chicken fried steak and a lumberjack breakfast.

  • Bar

    Creative signature cocktails with names like The Two Step and Wingman. We enjoyed a stellar hot toddy on a rainy Sunday.

  • Wifi

    Yes - Free.

  • Children

    Yes.

  • Price

    They're friendly on your wallet too. Rooms start from a low $129/night.
