Top 20 Cool And Unusual Hotels In Portland 2023

42 mins read

Small and compact, and not too far from the beautiful Oregon coastline, the unique Pacific Northwest Port city showcases everything which is good about the hipster scene.

When I visited it was honestly one of my favorite cities I’d traveled to. It was bursting with cool style and character and a sense of hope and community. I found myself surrounded by cute little cafes, chic and cheap vintage shops, and good-natured, eco-minded hipsters with a heart. 

Its charming and interesting collection of places to stay also reflect the city’s progressive and creative outlook on life. Here are my favorite cool, quirky, and unusual hotels in Portland, Oregon to help you plan a fun and interesting city break (in no particular order, they’re all equally awesome)

1. McMenamins Kennedy School – a wonderful, offbeat gem set in a restored 1915 elementary school

A fun hotel to stay in Portland

A very cool hotel to stay in Portland

Built in 1915, this repurposed Art Nouveux-era elementary school is a class of its own, literally!

McMenamins Kennedy School is located in the Northeast of the city which has more of a local neighborhood feel. Some highlights of this area include a vibrant arts and culture scene, plenty of craft breweries, bike lanes, green spaces, quirky cafes, and interesting independent boutiques.

It’s also near the Moda Center and the Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Alternatively, it’s easy to get downtown via the popular MAX light rail system or bus.

The decor, building, and concept are just so unique and I loved my stay here. Half of the 57 individually designed boutique rooms maintain their original classroom character and the other half sporting literary themes. The vibe is relaxed and friendly but it radiates an unusual vintage cool too.

Guest rooms are adorned with authentic vintage-chic decor and design features like hardwood or parquet floors as well as private bathrooms, free WiFi, air-con (or heating!), free toiletries, and comfy beds.

More of a retreat than a hotel after a day exploring the city, you can unwind in the outdoor soaking pool or combine homegrown pub fare with movie magic on the auditorium cinema screen! Or just take a wander around the cute gift shop, beautiful green gardens, hip onsite restaurant, and no less than four themed bars! 

Thankfully craft beer and freshly roasted coffee replace school dinners in this hotel! Guests can enjoy the house brew in the hotel’s very own Concordia Brewery (formally the little girl’s room!) listen to excellent live music in the on-site venue, and munch on delicious sustainably sourced grub in the Courtyard Restaurant.

Overall I thought it was a truly unique and fun gem of a place!

2. Jupiter Hotel – a hip retro-chic boutique converted from a midcentury motor lodge

Aimed at ‘modern travelers, cultural creatives, and anyone who lives outside the box’ the highly-rated Hotel Jupiter, is a great choice for a hipster-friendly stay.

It’s located in the trendy Burnside Street which is a major thoroughfare in the city and only a 5-minute drive from Downtown. The eclectic area is filled with quirky shops, great nightlife, tasty eateries, cool cafes, and vintage stores. It’s a fun place to base yourself while also being very accessible to major attractions.

If you want to party the night away you can stay on the bar side of the hotel, right next to the hotel’s Doug Fir Lounge and Restaurant which serves up creative cocktails and tasty American eats with vegan and gluten-free options. It’s a very cool spot with a great vibe (I was a big fan!) and this award-winning small venue offers excellent food, beer, and live music so you can rock until the small hours! The live music gigs here are very popular and attract a fun crowd.

For a more peaceful stay choose a room on the chill side. All guest rooms are pet-friendly and feature funky and chic 1950’s American dream-inspired décor, free WiFi, flat-screen TVs, air-con, and everything else you need for a very comfy – and trendy – stay.

As well as a 24-hour art gallery and a contemporary courtyard patio with a trendy fire pit, the hotel is dedicated to supporting local artists and small businesses, and on the first Friday of every month it hosts a ‘reception for the artist’ event where you can mix with local artisans and explore multi-sensory art forms with like-minded people.

Overall I thought this perfect mid-range hotel for the streetwise urban traveler who also likes to party. Although shy and retiring types may want to give this one a miss!

The guest rooms range from small to spacious and are lovingly decorated by local artists. There are dark wooden floors, the odd exposed brick wall, and plenty of creative and quirky features such as vinyl record players. Although the style is rustic-chic and some have shared bathrooms. Although all come with free WiFi, minibars, and flat-screen TVs.

Feeling hungry? Then you can enjoy home-cooked locally sourced food, a tasty continental breakfast fand a huge range of alcoholic drinks in the cozy Clyde Common restaurant and bar overseen by Chef Carlo Lamagna who goes all out with innovative menu choices. 

If you fancy exploring the city on two wheels there are bikes to borrow or you can even rent a bespoke handmade bike created for the hotel by artist Jordon Hufnagel (I loved this!)
