If it’s not the best urban lodging in Portland, it’s certainly the most fun. The Press Hotel was constructed over the bones of the former headquarters of the Portland Press Herald newspaper, and there’s a “golden days of journalism” theme throughout the building that’s more fun than it sounds, from the art installation of vintage typewriters in the lobby to the wallpaper made of old headlines to the mod Inkwell bar. Rooms are clean and contemporary, done up in muted blues and grays, with vintage furniture, local art, and a really generous number of outlets and USB ports. The on-site restaurant, Union, gets plenty of accolades.
