“Terrific location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

The Inn's slogan of "in the middle, but on the edge" (or something like that), really holds true. This location isn't really in the Pearl or in the NW 23rd street areas, but it's right between making it an easy walk to either. Although it's a longer walk, we ventured up to Pittock Mansion and the Japanese/Rose Gardens on foot. Plus, the NS trolley stops right in front of hotel, so you can grab that (hotel gives you 2 free passes per day) if you want to travel further out - or aren't into lots of walking.

The hotel itself is nice. It's always nice to have a full kitchenette in the room, though we didn't really use it much on this trip. The décor is funky. Bed was really comfortable.

The breakfast wasn't anything special, but we enjoyed being able to save a few bucks by having a good, solid breakfast before heading out for the day.

I'd recommend the Inn at Northup Station.

I can really only second all the positives other guests are saying in recent reviews. We were so happy to find this gem of a neighborhood hotel for our visit to Portland. I loved having a kitchen and there is a Trader Joe's a few blocks away for stocking up on snacks. We rode public transport or walked everywhere we wanted to go for most of our stay. The location is great--with plenty of great restaurants and coffee shops within the surrounding blocks. We had room 315 on the back side--it was very quiet. Room was very clean. Staff was helpful and patient (!) with directions getting around town.
Only 2 minor potential negatives--the floor in our room was pretty creaky--I wondered if it was bothering the people below us--though it didn't bother me. And there is a really odd smell in the public areas (though not the room itself) that is reminiscent of a veterinarian's office--perhaps the cleaning supplies they use? Not really a big deal since you only walk through those areas--just FYI if you have a super sensitive sniffer. The room didn't smell that way though--it was fine. Would definitely stay here again next time we are in Portland!

Room Tip: Streetcar runs on the side with even numbered rooms--odd numbered rooms are over the back parking lo...

Booked this hotel after all the good reviews on Trip Advisor and really glad we did. We could walk everywhere we wanted to and then get the streetcar back at the end of a long day. The free parking was a real bonus as well.

The staff were helpful, the breakfast basic but good and having the little mini kitchen was helpful although we only used the fridge as there were so many good places to eat nearby.

We had a front facing room but the noise from the road wasn't a problem and we had breakfast on our balcony most mornings as the breakfast room was full.

I would definitely stay here again rather than downtown.

Much has been said of the Inn at Northrup Station but I will add my two cents anyway. This hotel is a colorful renovation of an old apartment building that is comfortable and complete. Each room has a kitchen with full-size appliances, a kitchen bar, a desk and two flat screen TVs. A large TV in the dining and living area, and a small TV in the bed area. The rooms also have a king bed and sleep sofa or two queen beds. The bathroom is standard and adequate.

The hotel common area includes an ongoing supply of coffee, tea, fruit, and colorful candies - starbursts or taffy. The hotel also has a streetcar stop near its front door to take passengers to Portland's fun downtown area. The Inn, the only hotel in the area, also is adjacent to an upcoming and significant dining and shopping area.

Staff are friendly and knowledgable. Always a pleasant place to stay.

Room Tip: Rooms either face the street or the parking lot. This is mainly a residential area. Streetcars run...

Great location. Great customer service. Everything positive is true. We loved Portland, everyone was friendly and helpful. Northrup Station exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend. We walked, we drove and took the metro line. Perfect location for our family.

Room Tip: Family suite.

This was my first trip to Portland. I picked the Inn at Northrup Station based on the location, being near the streetcar line, plus the free parking. I was not disappointed. The room was bright and cheery and having the full kitchen was a nice touch. My room was on the parking lot side, not the street side, so the streetcar noise did not bother me. It was super handy to walk out the door and hop on the streetcar to get downtown. The complimentary breakfast is standard; the make your own waffle station is a nice touch. The complimentary wine tasting on Wednesday night was also a nice touch.

I just returned from Portland and the Oregon Coast. I LOVED the Inn at Northrup Station! We had been online and knew that the boutique hotel was colorful and funky, but neither the website or brochure could have measured up to the reality of the Inn! The furnishings are whimsical and so colorful in the public room as well as the bedroom suites. So nice to have the full kitchenette available as well. The bed was, without a doubt, the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. We found on checking out that the beds are custom made for the Inn and not available for purchase, darn it! We took advantage of the rooftop area to have morning coffee or wine after returning from our meetings. The location was terrific too! Close to the "trendy-third" district, with its restaurants and boutiques, and right on the trolley line which connects to the train and onto the Convention Center. I would most definitely return to the city of Portland and to the Inn at Northrup Station.
