Take advantage of our prime location and explore the many things to do in Portland that makes this city great. Here’s where to start:
- Bikes. There is such a thing as a free ride when you stay at Kimpton Hotel Monaco Portland, and when available, we’ll hook you up with a complimentary bike to explore Portland, America’s most bike-friendly city.
- Coffee. A little jolt of java in the a.m. is popular all across the country, but few places take coffee culture quite as seriously as Portland. Stop by Spella Caffe for a finely balanced espresso or Barista for a full-flavored cup of joe (and yes, as the name implies, the baristas are fantastic).
- Beer. You may have heard us referred to as Beervana, and that’s an apt description, considering Portland has more breweries than any other city on earth. A craft brew is waiting for you.
- Day Trips. You won’t run out of activities within the city limits, but we’re also a great jumping-off point for trips to the Willamette Valley, where Oregon produces its famed Pinot Noirs; Mount Hood, a mecca for hikers and skiers alike; and the Oregon coast, a breathtaking collection of quaint towns, rugged cliffs, and windswept vistas.
We also recommend LA Times' "An Oregon cheese tour is heaven any way you slice it," which highlights a few of Portland's cheddar hot spots, plus our swank abode.
