Cute hotel, excellent location

Posted Aug 21, 2016
We really enjoyed our stay at the Jupiter. It's in a great location and has a boutique feel. The door opens to the outside, which I don't usually like but it was okay in this case since the hotel was so cute. The rooms are very small but clean and cute. We saw a weird show at the Doug Fir but it was good music. I'd recommend this hotel if you don't mind a small room and a little near by night life.

Nice hotel in great location

Posted Aug 19, 2016
The hotel is located in a cool neighborhood, and walking to the downtown and the Pearl District is possible too (about 20min). The facilities are in good condition overall, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Also, my room was clean. On the downside, my bed was way too soft, thus sagging (and I'm a light weight). In addition, the hotel is quite pricy for what you get.

Motel-like but wonderful

Posted Aug 18, 2016
Pros: Staff, location, bar/restaurant, proximity to public transportation (bus).
Cons: Check out time (11 am) is a little early, although you can leave bags at the reception.
Location: Doug Fir breakfast (outstanding coffee, which is saying a lot in Portland) and happy hour; Rontoms happy hour; Burnside Brewery, Khao Gan Mai.
At first glance, it looks like a converted motel (which it probably is). But the staff members were welcoming, the room (though small) well appointed ( nice bedding, useful reading), surprisingly quiet (it may have been the room AC providing background noise, but I didn't notice any outside sounds at night). The bar/restaurant, Doug Fir, is great for breakfast and good for happy hour. There are other good bars down the street. The location is excellent, especially for public transportation. Looking forward to returning next year!

Definitely not worth the money

Posted Jul 29, 2016
Overall my experience at the Jupiter hotel was pretty disappointing. I was looking for places to stay in Portland and came across this one, thinking it was going to be a gem-it looked awesome and clean in the pictures, the website made it seem like it was going to be a trendy and fun hotel to stay at. The only good thing I can say about this hotel is that it is clean. That's where the good stuff ends. My biggest problem with this hotel is that they authorize your payment before you even check out, which I was not made aware of. Additionally, when I got back home to Vancouver, BC, Canada, they had authorized THREE different payments for THREE DIFFERENT PRICES on my credit card. I have done a lot of travelling and no hotel has ever taken my money in the middle of my trip nor have they done it three times for various prices. When I called my credit card company they couldn't even explain why they would do 3 different transactions. Parking is terrible-underground parking was always full, even the overflow parking was full. You have to park on the street at that point and they'll take the parking charge off your bill. Second day there, there was a business party/meeting of some sort in the outside lobby where your rooms are. The entire day and into the evening was loud people and loud music. The hotel didn't even inform the guests that this event would be happening. No fridge, no ice, no shower pressure- it was like bathing under a drippy faucet.

Good location, walking distance to most things

Posted Jul 11, 2016
Pros: Very basic (modern look), with everything you need in a place to sleep or relax. Great central outdoor space. Bike rentals available at the hotel.
Location: Food and drinks everywhere. Biking along the river. Hiking to waterfalls.
Very approachable and friendly staff members. Helpful with local activities and places to eat and drink. Central location to stay in town or drive a bit to get to some great parks. Quiet area at night, but walkable to nearby bars and easy access to the pearl district.

Friendly staff at an under whelming hotel.

Posted Jul 10, 2016
Rooms are so small. Very bare. No closet space. Don't quite understand how this establishment qualifies as a hotel. It appears to be an older motel that has been updated and gentrified. Generally clean. Friendly staff. But the pictures do the facility too much justice. And one of the main photos is of a restaurant that has no affiliation with the hotel but shares the property.

Expensive hotel beside fantastic restaurant

Posted Jun 7, 2016
Pros: The restaurant next door served amazing food.
Cons: Price
It was far too expensive for what it was. It was would have been worth half of what we paid. It was quite well located and staff were friendly but nearly $500 for 2 nights in a motel style room I felt was extortionate. No breakfast was included - nothing was included not even the parking. The saving grace was Douglas Fir!

Smells like you're staying in a cabana

Posted May 31, 2016 on Hotels
It's basically a motel with ikea furniture. It's clean enough, just not worth the $ you're going to spend to stay there. The rooms smell like you're staying poolside, except there's no pool for miles.

Loved it

Posted May 30, 2016 on Hotels
Really enjoyed my stay. Staff were very helpful and kind. Room was really clean with ample space. Doug Fir bar and restaurant being so close to the hotel was super handy for diner and breakfast. Only slight downside was the bright blue light outside the room door was not completely blocked out by the blinds.

We really enjoyed our stay! The only bad thing that I can say is that the rooms do get very bright in the morning. The curtains do not block out much light, which can make sleeping in at all a little difficult. But other than that we had a great time and really enjoyed the restaurant/bar located on the same grounds. They have a great outdoor seating lounge area! Very cool!
