“Excellent Choice in Portland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

When looking for a place to stay in Portland, many of the more centrally located, downtown hotels looked rather dull and boring. So, I was pleased to come across the Inn at Northrup Station on Tripadvisor. Normally, I wouldn't be interested staying in residential neighborhood a little removed from the center of the city. But the many positive descriptions on Tripadvisor of this funky hotel made it seem like an interesting place to stay. Importantly, the fact that the streetcar to the main downtown areas stopped more or less at the door to the hotel was a huge plus for my partner and me because we are both strong supporters of public transit. We certainly were not disappointed with the hotel or its location. The hotel has a friendly staff, huge, well-appointed rooms, and a very nice continental breakfast. Also, the location turned out to be a real plus. After spending our days touring many areas in and around downtown Portland, it was nice to arrive back at the hotel at the end of the day and to enjoy all the restaurants, cafes, and shops on or near 23rd Avenue. Very relaxing, and some very good food. On our next visit to Portland, it will be an easy choice as to where to stay; we will definitely book a room at the Inn at Northrup Station.

Any time we see a review that says we’ll be someone’s first choice when returning to Portland, we smile some very big smiles. Then we have hot cocoa and dance around to our "Awesome 80’s" Pandora station! Ok, so maybe not that last part, but the smiles are definitely happening. Thanks for the review and we’ll see you next time!

Our family (mom, dad, 7yo daughter) stayed at the Inn at Northrup Station over spring break, primarily based on recommendations from TripAdvisor. Once again, the recommendation did not disappoint.

The location was great, just a couple of blocks off of upbeat, funky 23rd Avenue. We ate at great restaurants either on or near 23rd three times during our stay, and all were great experiences (Papa Haydn, Besaws, Cafe Nell). The free streetcar tickets meant that anytime we wanted to head downtown, it was a short, free ride from the stop just outside the hotel. Yes, you can hear the streetcar rumbling past, especially from the street side rooms, but we decided that this was part of the urban atmosphere of the place, and didn't bother us at all.

Front desk stall were universally friendly and helpful, and the complimentary morning continental breakfasts more than sufficient to fill us up in the morning before we explored the city. The free parking was another bonus, as we did end up using our car on a couple of days (to explore Washington Park, and to go to OMSI).

Overall, this was a great experience; our only complaint (from our daughter) was the lack of a pool, but that was actually a bonus for us, as we didn't have to argue with her about whether to go and explore the town or stay at the hotel by the pool. :)

Room Tip: Avoid street side rooms if you are sensitive to noise.

A pool and spring break do go hand-in-hand, but isn’t your daughter a little young to be in college? ;) But in all seriousness, thank you so much for the kind review. We do strive to be universally friendly and helpful, as you said, and we’re glad you got to experience the hotel, the neighborhood, and plenty of other great Portland places. See you next time!

The rooms are a good size and contain a kitchenette. The Hotel offered free tram passes. They held a party for a solar eclipse which was top rate. One small quibble was that they rolled up the breakfast service at 9:30 rather than 10:00.

Wasn’t the eclipse amazing? It’s great that you were here for it! And with the exception of the waffle maker and mix, here’s a bit of a secret for all you Trip Advisor folks: if you ever miss breakfast and know what you want, just ask at the front desk. We’ll be happy to oblige. Cheers!

Our suite accomodation was huge! The king size bed was not dwarfed by the room; in fact, it had three more living spaces including a living area, a desk/office area, and a kitchen with full-size appliances including place settings for serving dinner. But why cook in the room with all those quaint shops in Nob Hill only steps from the hotel? Free parking is a plus in this area and the complimentary trolley passes were nice. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and the retro design throughout the hotel was obviously a point of emphasis. There was an even a complimentary wine tasting with hors d'oevres the night we arrived. Breakfast was satisfying and varied to suit all tastes. The only negative point has to be the sound proofing. Guests could easily be heard in the hallway and the room next door, as well as the trolley on the street below until the last trip at midnight. Overall though, this was a very nice stay in a convenient location.

So glad you were able to join us for one of our wine reception nights! We like to mix it up with fun events as often as possible, although we certainly understand that the hotel is where you typically end up AFTER going out and experiencing one or more of the many fun things that Portland has to offer. Thank you for the review!

Great hotel - decor was really cool and not your everyday, boring hotel. Staff was great and you can beat free breakfast and free parking. They also gave free passes for the street car - major plus! Next time I go to Portland I'll be staying here!
