Portland has always been known for its wealth of lodging options in the city center and beyond. There are five projects currently in development in the central city and 13 properties have opened in the city since 2018, including three properties during the Covid-19 pandemic. In all, this most recent wave of hotel development has resulted in almost a 50 percent increase in hotel inventory since 2016.

Across the river from downtown, Lolo Pass offers an upscale hybrid hostel experience in one the hippest and coolest areas of the city.

Perched in Portland’s Central Eastside District, across the river from the city’s downtown core, Hotel Grand Stark is a 57-room historic property that has been carefully and thoughtfully designed and reimagined back to its hospitality roots. The 1906 building is a four-story structure that was originally built as a hotel and formerly housed a legendary local furniture manufacturer for the past 80 years. The mix of king, queen and double-bedded guest rooms all feature fine Italian linens, bathrooms with luxe rain showers and Diptyque bath amenities, signature Palisociety stocked mini bars with gourmet snacks, SMEG mini refrigerators, and more. Select guest rooms offer views of downtown Portland as well as a dedicated workspace and cozy seating area.
The hotel is also home to two food & beverage concepts – the Grand Stark Deli and the forthcoming Bar Chamberlain – developed in partnership with the local culinary creative minds at Submarine Hospitality (Ava Gene’s, Tusk, Cicoria). The former pays homage to deli culture, incorporating the best of local Pacific Northwest ingredients and serving an approachable all-day menu from morning until late. Bar Chamberlain harkens back to the era of classic hotel bars featuring expertly crafted cocktails alongside a progressive, largely natural wine list anchored by a menu of crave-able snacks and comforting dinners.

KEX Hotel Portland (2019)
100 N.E. Martin Luther King Blvd. kexhotels.com
KEX, a “social hotel” from Reykjavik, Iceland, opened its first U.S. location in Portland in November 2019. The project revitalized the 22,500-square-foot Vivian Apartment building, built in 1911. Full amenities include rooftop deck/bar, ground-floor bar and restaurant Dóttir, live performance space, sauna, guest kitchen and laundry, and a flexible venue for private dining and events. The rooftop bar, Lady of the Mountain, incorporates small bites and frozen cocktails. Icelandic designer Hálfdan (Dáni) Pederson purchased objects from around the world for KEX, most made between 1920 and 1970, and refurbished them in a warehouse a block away from the site. The result is a space that feels inviting, low-impact, and timeless.
