Quirky Hotel Puts A Bird On It!
Posted Apr 19, 2017
We're from NYC and wanted the Portland experience for our vacation with a few roadtrips for some quality hiking. Kimpton is centrally located and had a quirky look. Our hotel room had wallpaper of ducks flying around the room. Even our lamp had duck feet. There are so many other decorating features that are too numerous to list here but our favorite part of the room was the funky zebra and cheetah robes provided. We enjoyed our first night's happy hour with a giant chess board on the floor. Some nights there was live music and a very engaging tarot reader. Early in the morning, coffee, tea and a newspaper would be provided. Many people brought dogs to the hotel but you'd never know it throughout the night. It was really quiet. They even had a welcome poster and treats for the dogs staying at the hotel. My husband enjoyed the complimentary bike he used along the waterfront and I liked the close proximity to the famous VooDoo Doughnuts, Powell Bookstore, The Original Diner, and the RedStar Restaurant. We were a 45 minute drive away from the Multnohmah Falls and a 1.5 hr. drive way from Silver Falls State Park. Great Hiking! Ten minute walking distance to the Lan Su Chinese Garden where there's a lovely tea ceremony. We also checked out the Portland Art Museum and the Esplanade. I wish we got around to seeing the Saturday outdoor markets (we took a 3 hour road trip to Cape Perpetua instead) and would love to check out a Ted Talks or a Jazz concert at STARS next time. Loved it!

Thank you Mary, we do our best to represent Portlandia! Looks like you had an amazing stay; you did more than some folks who live here! I hope you can make it back for the summer, it's a whole different world once the sun is shining and the festivals, concerts and events return. Hope to see you!
