First in Travel + Leisure

Hotel Eastlund is the first featured hotel in Travel + Leisure’s 17 Coolest New Urban Hotels in the Country slideshow. We are, of course, honored to be atop this buzzworthy list, “Humming with culinary trends, museums, and al fresco music concerts.”

As writer Kristine Hansen puts it, “Cities all over America provide ample opportunity for hotel exploration. Check into these brand-new hotels, with rooftop bars, top-notch furnishings, and impressive art collections, from Portland (in Oregon and Maine) to Miami Beach, and from New York City to L.A.”

When it comes to Hotel Eastlund, Hansen describes our property thusly: “This 168-room hotel is anchored by cups of Heart Coffee Roasters’ coffee and flaky croissants at a ground-floor café and bakery (Citizen Baker, from chef David Machado, also linked to Nel Centro) and 16 taps for local beers at the rooftop Altabira City Tavern, which boasts sweeping skyline views. The lobby’s hip-and-mod vibe features furnishings in tropical-fruit hues and wall murals against a heather-grey backdrop. Back in the rooms are walk-in showers, 40-inch Smart HD TVs, and a Keurig coffeemaker—punched up with fuzzy leopard-print blankets and geometric-patterned pillows. To explore beyond the Lloyd District, you need only hop on the Portland streetcar or MAX Light Rail, just outside your temporary digs.”

“Hip and mod,” indeed. We are thrilled to be named among some of the hottest hotels in the U.S. See for yourself what all the fuss is about. Stay with us and enjoy the skyline views from Altabira City Tavern, our rooftop restaurant in Portland, OR.
