From the Portland city guide in OutCity’s Winter/Spring 2013 issue.
Ace Hotel: This second hotel of the now four-strong hipster Ace family occupies a historic downtown building on the edge of the Pearl District—the noirish lobby appeared in Gus Van Sant’s Drugstore Cowboy. See the full listing here.
Hotel deLuxe: The vintage elegance of old Hollywood permeates this ritzy tower on the west side of downtown. See the full listing here.
Lion and the Rose Victorian B&B: You can’t get much more queenly than this graceful, gay-owned Queen Anne mansion, whose interior is a study in Victorian splendor—it’s in the leafy and historic Irvington neighborhood, a short walk from MAX light rail. See the full listing here.
Portland International Guesthouse: With easy access to the Pearl District and downtown via the sleek Portland Streetcar, this affordable, gay-welcoming guesthouse is a great budget option steps from a bounty of lively bars, restaurants, and shops (including Trader Joe’s)—Washington Park is fairly close, too. See the full listing here.
Portland’s White House: A wealthy lumber baron built this Greek Revival mansion in the tony Irvington neighborhood in 1911, billing it as the most expensive house in town. See the full listing here.
Hobo’s: The surrounding Old Town neighborhood is a tad seedy, but inside Hobo’s you’ll find an intimate, lovely space that’s been a favorite gay dining spot and cabaret for more than a quarter century. See the full listing here.
