One of the most popular Portland destinations, the Pearl District is a shining example of urban renewal — what was once an area of industrial warehouses and abandoned railroad yards is now the city’s most cosmopolitan neighborhood. And what better way to enjoy it than with a stay at one of the fabulous Pearl District hotels putting you right in the heart of the region. Here, the cobblestone streets mix with gleaming buildings, and you’ll find a fun array of art galleries, boutiques, clubs, and cafes, along with some famous icons — Powell’s City of Books, anyone? Nirvana for literature lovers, the bookstore occupies an entire block and is just a five-minute walk from Kimpton Hotel Monaco Portland. If you time your visit right, explore the Pearl on the first Thursday of the month, when the art galleries stay open late, live performances captivate passersby, and refreshments flow freely. Whenever you’re here, though, the shopping, activities, and dining won’t disappoint. When it comes to Pearl District, Portland hotels, a stay at Kimpton Hotel Monaco Portland is the perfect choice.
