The Westin Portland Harborview
Why We Love This Hotel
- The historic AAA 4-Diamond property was made famous by legendary guests like Charles Lindbergh
- On the same block as the Portland Museum of Art and State Theater
- Panoramic city and harbor views extend from every angle at the impressive rooftop lounge
- On-site restaurant, C2, offers a delicious and healthy locally sourced menu that focuses on superfoods
The views from Top of the East Lounge, the impressive rooftop bar at the AAA 4-Diamond Westin Portland Harborview, extend from the city lights to the harbor, easily showcasing Portland's finest angles.
The historic brick facade and panoramic views haven't changed since the property debuted as the Eastland Hotel in 1927. It was made famous for hosting Charles Lindbergh after his nonstop cross-Atlantic fight, and for refusing to host Eleanor Roosevelt's pooch Fala -- though now dogs are welcome and sleep soundly in their own Westin Heavenly Dog Beds (allergy sufferers, be warned!).
Whiz passed the Portland Museum of Art (right next door), Victoria Mansion and the Western Promenade on a guided all-levels running tour hosted by the running concierge Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30 a.m. Just ask the front desk for gear and shoe rentals if you forgot yours. The State Theater is across the street, and the Cross Insurance Arena is less than a 10-minute walk.
