Inn @ Northrup Station: A Colorful Retro Wake Up in Portland

Retro Wake Up in PortlandHeading into Portland, I knew we wanted to stay downtown because we wanted to hit up some doughnut shops as well as taste some local brew. So when I stumbled upon the Inn @ Northrup Station I knew this was the spot to be. Conveniently located along Portland’s streetcar line, this boutique hotel is surrounded by adorable boutiques and tasty restaurants but the selling point for me was the colorful retro feel.

By the way, they even had a yoga mat in the room for you to use, huge props! After meditating for the day, we headed out to explore downtown Portland before checking out.
