Inn at Northrup Station
Travel Blogs from Portland
... the city centre is great. The sun is shining and there are loads of shops. I do a deal with the kids - they let me look at the shops if we go to the cinema. So we find ourselves watching RIPD in a cinema with three strange men on their own. The film is funny but isn't going to be getting any oscars any time soon. We get back to the hotel just in time for free wine hour at the hotel. I decide I really like ...
... at work. Second stop was my sisters house. She was waiting outside and said it was so quiet she could hear me driving up on 15th. Very few people are up and about at 4:25 am. The goal was to get to her house by 4:15, I was there ten minutes late, not bad.
Here's my travel outfit. Long black leggings(usually not my favorite option but they're comfy), pink tank top, teal long sleeve shirt and black ...
... gifts from local artists. For lunch we tried the burgers at the Trillium Cafe at 207 oak St. The tater tots were especially tasty. Hood River is a fun place to walk around. It's a great place to browse away a few hours. We might have stayed longer, but wanted to see Mt Hood before we had to head back to Portland.
Originally, we thought we might visit the Timberline lodge because we heard good things. Ultimately, we ...
... van. Most of our gear fit on the two front seats, but we still had the back seats so we had to leave the out overnight. There were a few other RVs in the parking lot, so we knew we would be alright there for the night. We both didn't get much sleep, but it was definitely better than paying $100 for a bed for one night.
Saturday 25 May - We found a beach that had bathrooms that was close by, so ended up spending a few hours watching the surfers there. We found a Walmart to buy ...
... br> The Pheasant Ridge RV Resort is very nice. It’s on a hill but spaces are concrete and level with lots of grass, trees, and shrubs between. It is well managed with lots of rules and it’s also almost full. We decided that most of the RVers here are full timers who summer here and winter elsewhere, or those with jobs for which they travel or stay in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Inn at Northrup Station Portland
My husband and I stayed at the Inn at Northup Station for nine nights in July 2004 and had a wonderful time. The room was huge and had everything you could possibly need - a full kitchen (including dishwasher) comfortable bed, sofa, two televisions, a balcony ...
$300+ for 2 nites - Aggravated, Disappointed and Embarassed!!!
We just spent four nights at the Inn at Northrup Station, in a king suite. The decor is certainly cute and not your average hotel look at all, and the room was quite comfortable, but the functionality of the place still needs work. Some examples: when we checked in, two of the lamps in our room had blown-out bulbs; the phonebook was two years out of date; the toilet-roll holder was badly installed and the toilet roll consistently fell to the floor if tugged at all firmly; the bath faucet was installed crookedly; and the morning maid surprised us several mornings by coming in unexpectedly before we'd left to have breakfast. We learned to put on the deadbolt and hang out the "leave us alone!" sign, but it didn't always help. This is a cute place in a great neighborhood, and they have good intentions, but they still haven't fully realized the place's potential. Portland is a great city and NW 21st a great neighborhood, but I don't think we'll return to the Inn at Northrup Station.
I choose to stay at this hotel upon the recommendation of a friend in Portland. I arrived directly from the airport at about 2:30 PM. I was informed by an extremely indifferent young lady that I could not check in as it was before 3 PM and there was not a room available. She actually said I shoudl come back later. Well, having no place to go, I stayed in the lobby. I also inquired about a restroom and was told there wasn't any to use - they were all in the rooms.
Very Cute Decor
Very cute decor. A bit noisy. Great combination of NW Portland location and quality. Two excellent restaurants nearby (Wildwood and French).
Great Little Place
We have stayed here now three times...each was for several days while visiting a daughter nearby. The hotel is really unique....great colors; love the location - nearby to a bunch of good restaurants on 21st and 23rd (I think it is)....love the outfitting of the rooms....refrigerator; sink, etc...
My husband and I stayed 5 nights at Northup while we had a child at Good Samaritan. The vibrant colors that greeted us each time we entered the hotel were very refreshing. Our suite had two queen beds (clean and comfortable), a sitting area, a full kitchen, and work area. Although there is no restaurant on premise, several ethnic restaurants and a Starbucks is closeby. The room provided a quiet haven even in the middle of the day for rest and relaxation. The staff, too, proved friendly and helpful. All in all, an excellent experience. We would definitely stay here again.
I was completely surprised at how much I enjoyed staying at this hotel.
In a word, fabulous
My partner and I stayed here one night (7/2/03)while visiting friends in Portland who live a block away. Our expectations were exceeded at every turn. The Inn's cleanliness was enhanced by the engaging local, original art. The decor was fun, but not busy. The location was quiet, yet just a stone's throw from all the diversions of 21st and 23rd avenues. The balconies are also a great touch to these very large suites. Should we find ourselves in Portland again, we'll definitely be staying at the Northrup.
I stayed here for a few days while on business at a nearby hospital. The location is a residential/light-commercial area on the northwest side of downtown, at the intersection of NW 20th and Northup. Good Samaritan Hospital is the major landmark of this area. You are right on the Portland Streetcar line for a quick ride to city center attractions or a connection to Max for the Rose Quarter/Lloyd Center area. Rooms are either Junior Suites or Signature Suites. I had a junior suite--it is a large studio with a full kitchen. It was fashionably and attractively decorated in a "retro-chic" postmodern style.There is no restaurant on premesis, but there are several excellent ones within walking distance, such as Caffe Mingo for Italian cuisine. Overall it is a nice place to stay for business or for pleasure. My only lament was that it did not have high-speed Internet access.
