A sanctuary for artistic souls in Portland's Cultural District.
Perhaps it's the cozy on-site library. Perhaps it's the neighboring Portland Center for the Performing Arts and Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. Or maybe, just maybe, it's because this is the only hotel located in Portland's designated Cultural District. Whatever the reason, this classic establishment has a reputation for catering to arty types. Guests can choose between rooms or suites, which feature such telling details as French press coffee and tea service. There are plenty of nooks and crannies to enjoy in the building, including said library, where you may run into a famous author, and the beautifully paneled Tea Court Lounge, where afternoon tea gives way to evening cocktails and live jazz. The excellent restaurant and lounge are popular stops for concert- and museum-goers.
