The hotel scene, like every other scene in Portland, has changed dramatically in the last quarter-century. For one thing, Portland now has one. The city used to be plain Jane when it came to lodging, but now there is a raft of stylish, comfortable hotels of all levels of sophistication, from brand new hotels (the Hi-Lo downtown and Hampton Inn & Suites in the Pearl District) to dramatic makeovers (Hotel Vintage and the Dossier, both downtown). The large, classic hotels are all downtown, but so are a wide range of mid-size and smaller boutique hotels. Most of the downtown hotels have well-known and popular restaurants and lounges attached to them, and from downtown it’s easy to get everywhere by public transportation. I’ve included a couple of excellent B&Bs  that give a good perspective on different Portland neighborhoods, and a great hostel in northwest. The prices listed are for a double room in low season (winter) and high season (July–Aug).
