Where To Stay, Shop & Eat In Portland
This past weekend I had the pleasure of staying at The Duniway Hotel in Portland. Nestled in the heart of Portland, the Duniway boasts walking distance eateries, places to shop, drink and the perfect home away from home stay. This is going to be a two parter so sit back, relax and enjoy.
Living in Eugene means driving to the city often. I head up to Portland for blogger events, brunches and weekend trips to see friends at least once a month. Sometimes I go weeks without making a trip up there while others I spend two times out of the month frolicking through the city. For me, being the foodie that I am location is HUGE. I’ve stayed in several different hotels in Portland and none were quite like this one.
From the minute you walk in you feel like you’ve reached ultimate luxe. Kind of like the Nine’s Hotel but more hip. You find yourself overlooking the bar/coffee area and the restaurant attached, Jackrabbit. I decided I would dedicate a full post to the restaurant since it felt like it needed it’s own post. Our room was located on the 19th floor overlooking the city. WOW What. A. View. My boyfriend remarked how wonderful the room looked and that it was very “me”.
The book that comes with the room gives details on what’s nearby. We decided we wanted ramen for dinner and we’d head to a local barcade called Ground Kontrol before meeting friends for drinks at the Bailey Room.
Before heading out for the night, we decided to head to the lobby/bar area to have a drink. I ordered a rosé infused cocktail and he ordered a local beer. The decor was absolutely stunning.
In the morning we felt refreshed after a good night of sleep. As I sat drinking an espresso overlooking the city (compliments of the hotel), I felt so much gratitude in my heart. I feel that Brunchinista has come a long way in the last year. Sometimes as bloggers we don’t give ourselves enough credit for the things we create. I’m thankful to have partnered with The Duniway for this amazing and one of a kind experience.
Until next time Portland! Stay tuned next week for a full blog post on the Jackrabbit restaurant located at The Duniway. You can learn more about the hotel here.
