Portland’s name was decided by a coin flip, and while it turned out well for the city, you wouldn’t want to decide everything based on chance – especially not a hotel, a place where you will rest, relax, and connect with the local community while away from home and visiting this northwest city.
With a motto like the “House of Welcome,” Woodlark makes for a great choice when staying in Portland. This brand-new boutique hotel unites two iconic buildings, the historic Cornelius Hotel which opened in 1908 and the Woodlark Building, a retail and office building built in 1912.
You’re sure to relax in these pristine rooms at night and enjoy the cool aesthetic from the comfy bed to the bathroom with its black marble sinks with brass faucets.
The 150-room hotel was designed to showcase the nature of Portland with décor that has natural wood elements and leafy wallpaper in the elevators and rooms. If all that wasn’t enough, the lobby lounge’s sophisticated furniture is made brighter with potted plants placed throughout the space. Set yourself up here during the day to get in some work or to connect with friends with a cup of coffee from Good Coffee, the hotel’s coffee bar.
As for the rooms, they’re modern and sleek with green velvet headboards that play off the green leafy wallpaper. You’re sure to relax in these pristine rooms at night and enjoy the cool aesthetic from the comfy bed to the bathroom with its black marble sinks with brass faucets.
If hitting the streets of Portland for a morning jog isn’t for you, check out the hotel’s 24/7 fitness center, and then refuel at Bullard, the on-site restaurant serving Portland-esque cuisine. Toast your stay in Portland at Abigail Hall, the hotel bar designed to look like the reception hall suffragists met in the early 1900s at the Cornelius Hotel. In addition to martinis and manhattans, the bar has some quirky drinks like a $6 trio of “freezer tequila,” combined with a Miller High Life and a “dirty joke.”
Don’t leave your stay in Portland up to a chance – book a room at Woodlark and experience this brand-new property before everyone else does.
