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?

8.2 Very good
Pros:the pool is relaxing after a long day
Cons:loud recycling all night long
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The hotel is so interesting, historically and artistically.
8.5 Very good
Pros:Artsy, cool
Cons:Bed was uncomfortable
8.8 Very good
Pros:I liked the staff, the location, the restaurant, the soaking pool, the decor, the room, the themes, the lyrics, the view, the charm...
Cons:Since the Crystal is a renovated but charming old building with charming old windows, street noise can be intrusive (trash day can be brutal). Now that I know what the earplugs in the nightstands are for, my stays are much more pleasant.
5.7 Fair
Cons:Bathroom was not in our private room, elevator was ancient, lighting was too dark, street was too noisy.
