Underwhlemed

This is the hipster's hotel in Portland. Unfortunately, there was a ton of mold in the bathroom (how could the cleaning staff miss it?) and parking wasn't available on my first night (though I paid for it). The chalkboard paint on the boards was pretty cool, but not cool enough for me to stay there again.

Under construction

Without telling me that the hotel was under considerable construction, the staff addressed most of my needs, finding a better room, upgrading me for free. One day when I had to work in the room I could not escape the construction noise. I wish I knew about the renovations in advance. Staff was very responsive and accommodating. Room comfort was "dinged" because of construction noise during the day only. Wait til after the renovation is completed!

Okay, probably too trendy.

Was loud due to the bar on sight. Rooms were tiny and upgrades were merely cosmetic, still felt and looked rather cheap for the price. Lots of marketing and gimmicky stuff all over the placed, again, it cheapened the hotel. Other than that, the bed was excellent, very soft and comfortable.

For The Out-of-the-Ordinary Stay

I'm a young business traveler and I've grown ever so tired of the average, drag, bland hotel stay. All factors led me to this little gem in Portland. Upon arriving, you immediately know this is NOT your average hotel. It resembles a converted early 70's apartment complex with a style that sways between modern, kitchy and just outright fun. The rooms are small, but clever and perfect for a couple or a single nomad on the hunt for adventure. Possibly the best amenity is the adjacent lounge that shares ground with the hotel. The Doug Fir Lounge is a must-see in if you're in the Portland area. Amazing food, great drinks, great night life (from what I hear, I had to be in bed at a decent hour). Don't turn to the Jupiter if you're looking for peace and quiet though. They have much-needed ear plugs waiting for you on the nightstand upon arrival. However, if you're ready to have fun and stay in a hotel that isn't drab and depressing, welcome to The Jupiter.

"An Unexpected Surprise"

I was attending a business conference 10 blocks away from the Hotel and was surprised to find my room was located over the bar which had a live 'show' and band until 11:00 pm. (Very low level comedy as well.) The music toned down a bit after 11:00 and they did provide earplugs for the room. I changed rooms the 2nd night but the second room was adjacent to a heavy traffic area [...]. The staff were very gracious but I'd never stay there again.

Cheap Chic and Very Noisy

Visited Jupiter hotel for a conference. If you book a Bar Patio Lobu room, do not expect to get any sleep before 2 AM given the music blasting from the patio speakers. Ear plugs are provided, but are by no means sufficient. The other rooms are slightly better (they did transfer me to another room after complaints), so the provided earplugs might be sufficient there. And after 2 AM, just hope that the visitors in the next door rooms are not too noisy, since the walls insulate sound not that well... (A good thing about the patio speakers, you don't hear your neighbors before 2 AM. :-)) Nevertheless, if you're looking for a hotel because you want to get sleep, you might want to look to other hotels. Having said that, the bar itself (and the restaurant) are beautiful, and nice to visit. However, for the prices they charge, the rooms should have been better renovated and sound-proofed.
