Boutique hotels in Portland Oregon offer accommodations that are more stylish and comfortable than your average hotel. Chic is a word that could be used to describe most of the Portland boutique accommodations, and more often than not, a considerable amount of luxury is also part of the deal. Some of the city's boutique hotels are more luxurious than others, so travelers who appreciate added style and comfort won't have to go big in the spending department.
For many travelers, a Downtown Portland boutique hotel is the lodging option of choice when it comes to staying in the Rose City. The bulk of the city's boutique hotels can be found downtown, and they include the upscale Heathman Hotel. As is true of some of the other boutique hotels in Portland Oregon, the Heathman offers historic charm in addition to a slew of modern conveniences. When a more contemporary appeal is what you're after, then the Hotel Lucia might be a better fit. It's among the most contemporary and chic boutique hotels in town.
Should the Hotel Lucia already be booked, another Provenance brand hotel that offers boutique style in Downtown Portland is the Hotel deLuxe. You can find the Hotel deLuxe just outside of the downtown borders, so the location is certainly appealing. Also appealing are the rates. While the Hotel deLuxe offers a lodging experience that is similar to the boutique hotels in downtown proper, the rates are among the lowest of the bunch. This only helps to make it one of the most popular boutique hotels in town. Standard in-room amenities at the boutique hotels in Portland Oregon include flat-screen TVs and premium beds, and such is the case at the Hotel deLuxe.
Much like the Ace Hotel, the Hotel deLuxe offers base-level rooms that are well priced when compared to the more upscale rooms that they offer. In other words, if you are interested in enjoying boutique hotel style, but you don't want to break the bank, they are definitely worth keeping in mind. You might also keep the Hotel Fifty, the Jupiter Hotel, and the Aloft Airport Hotel when trying to find relatively cheap Portland boutique accommodations. The Hotel Fifty can be found right downtown, while the Jupiter Hotel, which is more like a boutique motel, is found across the Willamette River in the Rose Quarter/Irvington area. As for the Aloft Airport Hotel, it is the most chic and stylish of all the Portland Airport hotels. It's worth noting that the Jupiter Hotel boasts a restaurant/club where live music performances are often held. This helps to make it especially popular with younger travelers and those who are planning on enjoying a little nightlife while in town.
Getting back to the more upscale Portland boutique accommodations, both the Hotel Monaco and the RiverPlace Hotel (pictured) are among the best luxury options. The Hotel Monaco is a lovely Downtown Portland boutique hotel that can be found just one block from Pioneer Courthouse Square. In addition to stylish rooms that are filled with amenities, guests at the Hotel Monaco can enjoy free Oregon wine tastings in the afternoon, which is a welcoming perk. As for the RiverPlace Hotel, it is arguably the best of the waterfront hotels in the area. Found in the Downtown District, the RiverPlace Hotel enjoys a fine location. Guests can pamper themselves at the onsite spa when they're not enjoying downtown attractions such as the Oregon Historical Society, and free access to a nearby health club only helps to sweeten the deal.
As is true of the RiverPlace Hotel, the Avalon Hotel & Spa is an upscale boutique hotel that features an onsite spa. It also enjoys a riverfront location, and while it isn't found downtown, the Downtown District is just a mile away to the north. Most of the riverside rooms at the Avalon have private balconies, and you'll also enjoy fantastic river views when dining at the onsite restaurant.
Whether you have your heart set on a Downtown Portland boutique hotel or you don't mind staying outside of the downtown borders, there are a bunch of great lodging options on the boutique front. It is worth noting that pets are welcome at some of the boutique hotels in Portland Oregon, so you don't have to leave your four-legged friend at home when looking to stay at one.
