When it comes to traveling, CYTIES men are drawn to underrated neighborhoods, where communities are redefining art, food, style, and entertainment for the select few who seek it out.
The Hoxton brand places their hotels in such places, putting our idea of a traveler right in the mix of the best up-and-coming scene of any city. They did it first in London’s Shoreditch neighborhood, and then in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg. Now they’ve done it with Hoxton PDX, Portland’s very own hip and trendy hotel set in Old Town Chinatown.
Like their other properties, The Hoxton Portland kills it with a mid-century styling. In their rooms, you’ll find walnut paneling and curated artwork by Upfor and ceramics by Clay Factor.
Hoxton hotels seek out diversity and neighborhoods with vibrancy, so it makes sense for Hoxton Portland to be in Old Town Chinatown, a culturally-infused place with quirky elements like the Shanghai Tunnels, Portland’s Saturday Markets, and the sought after Voodoo Doughnut Shop.
Like their other properties, The Hoxton Portland kills it with a mid-century styling. In their rooms, you’ll find walnut paneling and curated artwork by Upfor and ceramics by Clay Factor. Bookshelves line the walls and are filled with thought-enriching works.
Rooms are defined by space – from shoebox, or tight-fitting quarters, to roomy rooms where multiple guests can spread out. The style is unbeatable and features antique items amid modern pieces, and upscale bathrooms with walk-in showers. Guest are catered to with a free light breakfast bag in the morning, plus fresh milk and water to enjoy during the day.
With a Chinatown location, you’d think Hoxton’s dining selections would take advantage of that, and in one way they do. Their basement bar hooks you up with late-night Chinese American food for those who need something filling before crashing on their comfortable bed. But for the most part, The Hoxton Portland has brought Mexican cuisine to P-town with La Neta, a Mexican restaurant on the first floor, and Tope, a rooftop taqueria with street food cuisine and mezcal cocktails.
Though they have plenty of amenities, Hoxton doesn’t want you to be contained to their hotel. While they host events for locals and guests to intermingle such as through film chats and yoga classes, they want you to get out and explore a side of Portland that isn’t overwhelmed with mainstream tourism.
The Hoxton Portland have done their research, and if they’re in Old Town Chinatown, so you can guarantee that is where you’ll want to be, too.
Spaces feature modernist-inspired artwork with a thoughtful decor. Choose from Shoebox, Snug, Cosy, or Roomy elements between the 119 rooms
