Cool, quirky decor and the shared bathrooms were spacious and clean. Good location for exploring Portland, albeit a little noisy as situated on a main road. Didn’t get chance to use the soaking pool, but a nice extra facility if you have time!
The first room we were given (415) was small and incredibly noisy - not just general traffic noise that you’d expect from being on a busy road, but the a/c unit seemed to be next to or above the room and hummed loudly on and off all night. In the morning, I asked the staff member on reception if we could switch rooms for our second night, and he arranged this quickly and without fuss. Our second room (311) was much bigger and much quieter - so thank you for moving us.
Extremely clean and charming
The staff was amazing and very accommodating.
Very noisy street noise. Some of the rooms were musty smelling.
The eclectic atmosphere of the revitalized building. Appreciated that there were no televisions in the rooms
Very quirky hotel, great location, good restaurant on ground floor and excellent service.
Was a little noisy at nighttime and I’m a light sleeper.
Portland is a magical place in its entirety, but for a classic experience of this forward-thinking city, the Crystal Hotel and Ballroom is the place to stay. It is located right at the edge of Pearl District which doesn’t get a person much closer to the music scene in the hip town of Portland, Oregon.
The Crystal Hotel and Ballroom is 100 years old and is a flatiron classic structure. There are 51 guestrooms to choose from and each room is decorated with inspiration by a song or performance at its neighbor, the Crystal Ballroom.
The Zeus Café, located on the 1st-floor, offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner for guests. Of course, Portland is all about good food and fresh ingredients, therefore the food here features Northwest ingredients. Guests can enjoy the food before hitting the town and even stop by for a late-night snack.
The hotel is just steps away from McMenamins Crystal Ballroom, which is a famous live music venue. For guests who really are itching for a music-filled vacation, Everyday Music is just across the street and has a plethora of music-related retail available for purchase.
To visit Portland and not go into Powell’s City of Books would be like visiting Rome and not seeing the Coliseum. Powell’s is a wonderland of books, used and new, and fun gifts. The place has several floors and color-coded topic zones. After a musical and funky day in Portland, there is no better place for an epic sushi experience than Bamboo Sushi, an eco-friendly sushi restaurant with some of the best fish one can eat.
The funky town of Portland is a beloved Oregonian city. The people, city, and nearby nature are welcoming and mysterious at the same time. What better way to stay in such a town than to be located right in the middle of it all?
