Not my cup of tea

Apparently I don't fit this hotel's demographic. It's an imaginative refurbishing of a 60's motel with decor that's a refreshing change from the inoffensive, plain vanilla decor of most hotels; however, the room was unbelieveably small. I've stayed in economy motels that had rooms at least half again larger than this was.

Boutique party hotel

The juniper Bar and restaurant are good the club is Fun. but the room had some cool features but when you really look it was run down older furniture and bathroom. only good if you spend most of your time parying outside the room.

Jupiter fun

great staff and location if you're looking to stay close to all the action. My room was steps from the Doug Fir where I ate and caught a great band. My top destination next time in Portland.

Depends on Your Priorities

Staff was really cool and super helpful. The hotel was in a very convenient location. There was good food and shopping within walking distance. The only problem I had (and it was a major one for me) was that the walls were thin and the neighbors were noisy most of the day-which doesn't allow for a whole lotta sleep.

Neat Hipster Motel

I kind of liked this hotel. It's an old converted motel, and it now has a bar, tattoo parlor, salon, and conference center. It can get loud at night, but it's close to many things in downtown Portland and it certainly has its charms. I would go again.

A Rocker's Paradise

This is a great hotel for rock and roll fans. Different bands every night. If you are not a fan, and like to go sleep early, forget it. The bands are loud and play until about 1 AM. If you do stay there, go out and mingle with the crowds and have fun. And by all means, eat at Doug Fir, and bring your appetite! The hotel is within walking distance of the Portland Saturday Market and Powell's Bookstore. I had a lovely weekend at the hotel.

A Must Stay for the Artist on a Budget

The Jupiter Hotel is awesome. Not only is it literally across the parking lot from one of the coolest music venues in Portland, which also happens to have amazing food, the concept/architecture is awesome. This is not a hotel you want to stay at if you're 60 and uptight. It's not a place to take your kids. My only complaint was that I was at the end of a corridor on the first floor where there was a bathroom that is shared with the little shops (there's a tatoo parlor and a hair dresser along with two Jupiter Hotel business conference room/event spaces). There was a surprise birthday party for someone on the Saturday night and pretty much most of the night there were drunk people coming in and goign out of the bathroom. So-the room wasn't too quiet. I wish I had stayed in one of the rooms with the wall murals. Mine was just white. But, I LOVE the gigantic fuzzy (looks like someone skinned Oscar the Grouch) bolster pillow. The office staff is awesome and incredibly helpful. I even learned some interesting points about the Albanian Mafia..what more can you ask for in a hotel experience?
