We just completed a 2 nite stay while in town to see our son. His apartment is downtown, east river side and Kennedy is just a 15 minute drive NW about midway between PDX and downtown. Wonderful, small, quaint home neighborhood, good for walks. Like all McMenamin locations, Kennedy is a place to discover, explore, & enjoy. We were in the English Wing Room 203 which connects nicely to the main "school" via a covered porch. Enjoyed great food & outdoor dining at the Courtyard restaurant. Had fun checking out the 4 bars and liked the reggae playing in the Cypress Room. Staff at Kennedy happy and helpful! Room rates high but fair for Portland. We will be back.
