STAY, SHOP & EXPLORE! Get out there and explore, because you never know which day will be the one you remember! 
​DIY Bar- 3522 N Vancouver AVE 

We know you’ve always wanted to sip wine and build your kitty a cat scratcher. We've also heard that you were interested in making your own leather koozie for your beer - while drinking it. DIY Bar opened shop less than two years ago, but we would already consider it a Portland staple. Perfect for dates, Sunday morning mimosas (cough-bottomless-cough), or breaking out of the same old bar scene.                                                                                                  Come change it up.
Circa 33- 3348 Belmont ST 

A Prohibition-style speakeasy, Circa 33 is one-of-a-kind. Gorgeous cocktails and an intimate ambiance make this spot great for anything from a date to after-work drinks.
ENŠO Float- 1102 NW 10TH AVE

​Every once in a while, it’s time to relax and get your head back on straight. Enšo Float is in the North Pearl, and one of our favorite float shops in town. It's a beautiful space and an amazing experience. You've gotta try it at least once.
Secret Society- 116 NE Russell ST 

The secret is out. Located next to/above Wonder Ballroom, Secret Society is a great post- or pre-show stop. With a speakeasy feel and shows in the side room, you can’t go wrong.
Labrewatory- 670 N Russell ST 

​Portland loves experimenting with beer, but Labrewatory takes things to another level. They aren’t out to make beers that please every palate. Instead, they craft the brews that might challenge your idea of a what a beer should even taste like.
Kennedy School- 5736 NE 33rd AVE 

​Soaking pool. Cigar lounge. Three bars. Restaurant. Massive Patio. Garden. Probably other stuff we’re forgetting. But if you ever can’t decide what to do or where to go, this place has one of everything so you can’t go wrong. Plus, you won’t get detention for drinking whiskey in the hallways.

Portland is so close to the Hotel, we always recommend guests to go enjoy the fun restaurants, shopping and other hidden gems that Portland has to offer! From food trucks, coffee shops, doughnut shops and Fine Dining Restaurants. Portland is know for it's Gorge-ous scenery! 

Here are a few facts and Staff Portland Picks for your next trip to the Pacific Northwest! 

Portland was named by a toss of a coin! ​In 1843 two of the biggest landowners in the territory, Francis Pettygrove, a man from Portland, Maine, and Asa Lovejoy, who hailed from Boston, Massachusetts tossed a coin to see what the city would be called and Francis won. The same coin that was flipped resides in the Portland Historical Society Museum. 

Portland Nicknames
The first and oldest nickname is Stumptown, originated back in 1840! Locals called Portland this nickname not because of Stumptown Coffee Roaster's but because many stumps were left after trees were cut down to make way for the fast urban growth that was taking place! While checking out Stumptown Coffee don't forget to check out Voodoo Donuts while you're at it, it's a Portland must! 
​Big and Small Parks 
Portland is also known for having both big and small parks! Portland has one of the largest urban parks in the nation while also having the smallest parks in the world! Mill End's Park is the smallest park in the whole world according to the Guinness Book of records and has held that spot since 1971! This small park is a mere two-feet in diameter!
The largest urban park is called Forest Park, with over 5,000 acres of urban forest. This park offers over 80 miles of trails to explore. This includes Wildwood Trail that is 30 miles long and connects to Portland's Washington Park that is located in the west hills above the cityscape.
