Hotel Vintage, A Kimpton Hotel
This pretty hotel is especially appealing to romantics and wine connoisseurs.
Although Portland is actually miles from Oregon wine country, this downtown boutique hotel celebrates that distinctive region. It's located right in the heart of the city, and while there isn't a vineyard on-site, its rich colors and deep textures are as intoxicating as a glass of local Pinot Noir. The culture-conscious flock to this elegant hotel just a few blocks from Pioneer Square. The 117 accommodations range from the amply equipped, two-story suites with Japanese soaking tubs to the Starlight Rooms featuring massive windows for gazing up to the heavens. Suites come with dining tables, and all rooms have refrigerators (for chilling Chardonnays) and plush bathrobes. A complimentary wine reception is offered each evening, and Pazzo Ristorante presents the tastes of Italy for scenesters and lovers of the good life. Those who bring Fido along will find their pooch pampered with a dog mat, local treats, bottled water and more.
