We stayed here for 1 night on a West Coast Road Trip. Dick was a great host and good company over breakfast which was freshly prepared and cooked by him. He really helped with local knowledge from telling us the bus route and number to get to town, to sharing a number of stopping points/places of interest on our next...

We enjoyed our stay in Portland at this beautiful former Mayor's Mansion. The rooms were of nice residential size as found in older buildings. The owner is a collector of Asian art so the ground level is a virtual museum of beautiful Asian art and decor. The daily breakfast was served at 8:30AM with all the guests dining together, a...

This impressive house actually was the Portland mayor's mansion in the early 20th century! The house is in a beautiful residential neighborhood with easy access to the many restaurants and shops in SE Portland and also a short drive to downtown. It was built in 1912 and has been well restored; it is also meticulously clean. There are several rooms...

First, we were greeted by David, the owner, who doubles as a wonderful chef at breakfast. My husband and I stayed here 2 nights, with friends, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The mansion is stately, and decorated with wonderful pieces of art. The whole place is clean as a whistle, which I really appreciate. The breakfast was wonderful, with French...

This B&B is located outside of the city centre but is in a wonderful area, backing onto Laurelhurst Park. It is a short walk to numerous (and excellent) restaurants and is only a short bus ride into Portland. We bought an all day ticket for $5 (from memory) which included travel on all buses and trains around the city which...

Fabulous accommodation to stay - Host Dick was truly wonderful and we enjoyed all aspects of our stay, from the comfort of our room, to the chatty (and delicious!!!!) breakfasts. This place and host really made our stay in Portland very memorable. Would TOTALLY recommend and would go back in a flash.

We only had one more night to stay in Portland, and I booked this room last minute for our stay. What a great way to end our vacation. This property is adjacent to a lovely park - on the night we visited, there was a brass concert that we ambled down to watch. Host was helpful and non obtrusive. Breakfast...

We stayed here for 2 nights while we toured the Portland area. We had the Ankeney room, which had a private bathroom. The bedroom was decent size. The breakfasts offered each day was very enjoyable. The hosts offered some very good local information. Overall, it was a pleasant stay and we would gladly stay there again.

Il you get a chance to stay here you won't regret it. Very comfortable, charming and clean. The bedrooms are top notch and the linens are excellent. It's close to a cutesy wootesy area for evening dining and right next to a park for an after diner stroll. Thumbs up all the way!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Portland Mayor's Mansion™ is a four-room bed and breakfast located at Laurelhurst Park in Portland, Ore. The mansion, which was originally called the H. Russell House, has been referred to as The Mayor's House or The Mayor's Mansion for many years. It is our intention to keep the beautiful and historic home, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, connected to its past. The H. Russell Albee House, built in 1912, holds significance under the U.S. Department of the Interior's Criterion "C" as an excellent and well-maintained example of Colonial Revival Architecture. Located on a commanding site overlooking Laurelhurst Park in southeast Portland, the large brick home was designed by prominent architect, Albert E. Doyle. Significant elements include the following: Bilateral symmetry of the front elevation Hipped roof Arched and rectangular windows, double-hung and casement Pedimented entrance portico; and Full Doric entablature at the roofline and classical interior detailing - all characteristic features of the Colonial Revival. Albert E. Doyle designed many large homes in Portland. His most prominent works included the Selling Building, Multnomah County Central Library, Northwest Bank Building (now the American Bank Building), Reed College, Benson Hotel, U.S. National Bank Building, the lodge at Multnomah Falls, Public Service Building and the Pacific Building where he moved his office in 1926. H. Russell Albee carries significance under the U.S. Department of the Interior's criterion "B" for his contribution to good government in Portland and his lifelong interest and support for the city park system. Albee served one term as a State Senator before being elected mayor of Portland in 1913. He was elected on a progressive platform that included a charter proposal that eliminated the old ward system and introduced the commission form of government Portland has today. Albee's skill and leadership brought about the successful implementation of the new government and the related modern programs. He led the efforts to develop the city's public docks and strongly supported measures to implement the park expansion called for in the 1912 Bennett Plan. He did not seek reelection in 1917, returned full time to his insurance business. In 1939, after his retirement from business, Albee returned to public service when the city council invited him to accept the temporary post of advisor and assistant to the Superintendent of Parks, a position that was established in connection with a new park development program. The position was made permanent in 1940 and Albee was given title of Supervisor of Land Acquisition and Development for the Bureau of Parks. He continued in that position until his death at age 83, December 31, 1950. ... more   less
