Need a bed in Beertown? Look no further than these sudsy stays.
Just blocks from the city’s Pioneer Square, the mod-eclectic Hotel Monaco hosts free daily happy hours in its lobby lounge, where local brewers and vintners mingle with guests (and their dogs, too!) as they pour their wares. Aficionados can book the Portland On Tap package (from $160 per night) and score pint glasses, a bottle of Oregon craft, a tasting notebook and two free beer flights at the nearby Red Star Tavern & Roast House.
Brewpub empire McMenamins opens the 51-room Crystal Hotel (from $85) this month in triangular, early 20th-century digs across from Portland’s legendary Powell’s Books. Guests can indulge in the subterranean saltwater soaking pool, two cafés, a cellar bar pouring house brews and priority access to live shows at the Crystal Ballroom next door.
