Crystal Hotel in Portland, Oregon
Located just across the street from the legendary Crystal Ballroom, the Crystal Hotel has 51 comfortable guestrooms; each inspired by a song or performance from the Crystal Ballroom's past 100 years.
The Crystal Hotel is on the National Register of Historic Places. Colorfully painted panels and headboards anchor the rooms, while deeply hued walls, black velvet drapery and animal print upholstery lend a rock 'n' roll vibe. Large windows afford views of downtown Portland. Hotel room rates include admission to the soaking pool and the opportunity to purchase tickets to a Crystal Ballroom show.
Our bright, first floor restaurant, Zeus Café, offers breakfast, lunch and dinner, using the freshest Northwest ingredients possible. This space was named for Nate and Tillie Zusman, the location's charismatic nightclub owners during the 1950s and '60s. The Zeus Café is popular for breakfast or lunch dates, pre-show dinners or late-night cocktails. Heated outdoor seating provides a great spot to watch passersby.
Head downstairs to hang out at Al's Den, a music venue named for Al Winter, Portland's gambling overlord who, in the 1940s, managed his vast empire that spanned the Pacific Northwest and into Las Vegas from this very location. Today, we hold live music, artist residencies, pre- and post-concert performances and more.
Set below street level at the Crystal Hotel, our saltwater Soaking Pool ebbs and flows in the midst of bustling downtown Portland. Hotel overnight guests can unwind after a long day of shopping or meetings or before heading to the Crystal for a concert.
Just across the street reigns the legendary Crystal Ballroom music venue, which opened in 1914. Since then, the Crystal stage has been graced by the likes of Rudolph Valentino, the Grateful Dead, Sleater-Kinney, Tito Puente and many others.
The Crystal Ballroom also serves as an elegant event and meeting space for celebrations and gatherings of all types. The hotel is the ideal partner to the Crystal for concertgoers, wedding parties, business travelers and others.
When it comes to Portland, Oregon hotels, the Crystal Hotel, well, rocks.
