Well, just as the title mentioned, I am visiting Portland, OR for one night only on July 13th (Friday) and I was wondering what recommendations you have for a cool place to stay. I am looking for some city night life, cool bars, live music, etc. I'm doing a road trip around the west for a month to National and State Parks, so I will need a little break from that and will want to experience some city life.

My price limit for a room is about up to $130 for the night. Is that too low for a decent place in a cool area? If so than I may be willing to pay more. Let me know what you think.

Thanks,
Paul
ps-anyone out there recommend any cool Elliott Smith sites I should see while there? :-)

Hmmm...regarding hotels, you might want to check out The Jupiter Hotel. It is on the east side of the city, just across the Burnside Bridge. It is adjacent to a great live music venue, the Doug Fir. While not in the middle of downtown or The Pearl, it is a short walk across the bridge.

Regarding Elliott Smith locations. You can check out Lincoln High School downtown which is where he attended (as did Matt Groening of The Simpsons fame). Also, off of either/or there is a song, Alameda that is an east side neighborhood and street. It might be kind of cool to take a pix of the street sign. The area is very picturesque and mainly residential. I know during his time with Heatmiser he lived in a large home in Irvington, the "Heatmiser House". A friend once pointed out the specific house, but I can't recall where exactly it is.

Hope this gives you a good starting point. Have a great time.

Thanks! I checked out Jupiter and the place looks very cool. Seems pretty trendy right? I just reserved a room there for $104, so not bad at all. Thanks for the tip. The front desk guy said the hotel is about a 12 minute walk from 2nd Street, which he said was a main street in town for night life. Would you agree?
