The bunk room has been created as a nod to the hotel's creation as a safe place for sailors. You'll find the same thing in this space with 18' ceilings- cozy, strong, and comfortable triple bunk beds.
The Society Hotel is centrally located to virtually all transit in Portland. Trimet, our local transit system is one of the best in the nation, with a $5 daily pass or $2.50 for 2.5 hours. The fare works for all busses, MAX trains, and street cars. Bus Lines and Yellow + Green Light Rail (MAX) lines run on 5th+6th Avenues. Additional Red + Blue MAX lines run on 1st avenue. The MAX red line offers a 40-45 minute ride from the airport and the Old Town/Chinatown red line MAX stop is a two block walk to the hotel. The Greyhound bus station is 4 blocks away, and the Amtrak station a block further. Street parking is hourly pay during the day and is free from 7pm until 8am most nights, Friday and Saturday nights being the exception, as nearby streets are closed to vehicle traffic from 10pm until 4am to allow pedestrian and taxi traffic only. We also recommend a covered parking garage called Smart Park on NW 1st and Davis, which has some of the best rates downtown. Ride sharing like Car2Go and Zipcar as well as multiple car rental businesses are available within a 10-15 minute walk as well. Uber and Lyft also serve the hotel. As of July, 2016 Portland has Biketown bikes available for hourly and daily rentals at stations and hubs all over downtown and the inner east side.
Inspired by their amazing experience as AirBnB hosts at home, our owners Jessie and Jonathan, along with friends Matt and Gabe, took the plunge to create an AirBnB-themed hotel! The result is The Society Hotel, an unique boutique hotel with hostel component that has been serving adventurous travelers since 1881!
We are a group of travelers, having collectively been to the corners of the world, and we wanted to share our love for exploration and our adopted hometown of Portland, Oregon. Come stay with us in our historic sailor's lodge and we'll help you have an authentic Portland Experience!
