Unique experience
A truly unique experience in a fabulous old building. Cool bars, great patio dining and excellent service. Just be prepared for no TV, no counters around the sink and no coffee maker.

One night at Kennedy…
It was a great stay! Very unique hotel set up, no TVs in room, but that is a good thing! Really neat art, soaking pool and movie theater were terrific. Would say only hiccup was wifi was spotty. Otherwise it was a great experience, would stay again!

Repurposed elementary school is a relatively short drive from PDX. I didn't explore the neighborhood but it looks like there would be some nice walks to be had. Decor throughout is fun Victorian with varied assortment of lamp fixtures and headboard recalling 19th century book cover. Room in the English wing was perfectly quiet, and I was able to arrange things so as to use my notebook computer.

Comfie but dark
Charming, staff very helpful. Hall in the English Wing is very dark. The room had several colored light bulbs so the lighting there was also dark and there were no regular bulbs available to swap out. Courtyard restaurant is excellent, great choices and prepared well.
