About The Jupiter Hotel
The Jupiter Hotel is the brainchild of developers Tod Breslau and Kelsey Bunker.  Established in 2004, the Jupiter is Portland’s first cultural boutique motel turned hotel in what was a seedy 1960’s motor lodge on the edge of downtown.  After identifying the property, it’s proximity to the convention center, the downtown entertainment district and the Willamette River, the developers decided it would make the perfect Hotel, Nightclub, and social gathering place with affordable rates, and exciting events.

Enlisting the creative force of Jeff Kovel and Skylab Design, the Jupiter Partners created a light filled property, transforming parking areas to bamboo laden courtyards, adding an evening glow with a large fireplace patio, and creating modern, crisp guestrooms that attracts an international array of design savvy travelers and urban nomads.

Indulge In Urban Life.
For modern travelers, cultural creatives and anyone who lives outside the box, the Jupiter Hotel invites you to indulge in urban life. We offer affordability, insist upon originality, and connect you to the vibrancy of Portland. Assert your independence, and discover a new experience in urban hospitality.
The Jupiter Hotel presides over Portland, Oregon's vibrant Lower Burnside neighborhood, inviting independent travelers to indulge in urban life. The Jupiter is where cultural creatives, modern nomads and anyone who thinks outside the box finds a home in Portland - an affordable, independent, unique home. With all the amenities a modern traveler needs, and a variety of room options, the Jupiter's event spaces are regularly utilized by the city's creative minds and cutting-edge corporations.

The Jupiter’s remodeled lobby features a custom designed art gallery, exposing all guests to emerging artists and encourages emerging collectors. Acting as a community incubator and featuring art installations, openings are on the first Friday of every month. Hotel guests, tourists and locals alike are welcome to tour the gallery 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
Adjacent to the hotel is the Doug Fir Lounge, a renowned indie rock club with live music almost every day of the year, and its popular restaurant with local, sustainable and delicious food from 7 AM to late night.

Guest Rooms

The Jupiter Hotel offers 81 modern guest rooms, recently renovated and boasting custom-designed desks and headboards by Portland designers Colin Fjeld and Ken Tomita. With pillow top beds, goose down comforters, chandeliers, chalkboard doors inside and out, hand painted wall murals and 32-inch flat screen televisions, each room includes a copy of The Four Agreements, free wifi access and MP3/iPod compatible speakers. With optional kitchenettes and double rooms available, the Jupiter caters to the urban nomad, no matter their needs. The DreamSUITE is a 500-square foot, one-bedroom suite furnished with a wet bar, two plasma televisions, king bed and bamboo floors. The suite is just the right size for exclusive, private events of 5 - 15 people.

In February 2012, the Jupiter Hotel opened their completely remodeled and custom designed lobby as a 700-square foot gallery space. The design incorporated wood and metal elements already existing on the property, pulling through a Pacific Northwest aesthetic while creating a minimalist feel that highlights the artwork. Providing a unique and constantly evolving experience, the Gallery at the Jupiter features new artist installations monthly. Hotel guests, tourists and Portland locals alike are welcome to tour the gallery 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.


Green Lodging

The Jupiter Hotel is committed to enhancing sustainable business practices, and management/staff work with the City of Portland’s Office of Sustainable Development to implement eco-friendly programs on the property, including:

  • Paperless email options for guest receipts, invoices and contracts.
  • Non-toxic and hypoallergenic cleaning and laundry products.
  • Guest room and event space recycling programs for metal, plastic and paper products.
  • Biodegradable and organic shampoo, soaps and body lotions in all guest rooms.
  • Compact fluorescent low-energy lighting that decreases energy use and carbon footprint.
  • Printed material programs incorporate recycled paper products.
  • Water and gas saving energy housekeeping programs.
  • City bicycles available for guest use.
  • Employee subsidies for use of public transportation to and from work.


The Jupiter’s outdoor courtyards are communal meeting places and an oasis for guests. With clusters of seating, a bamboo garden and complimentary wifi, the courtyards invite guests to mingle. The tented courtyard is available to rent for private parties and is often the scene of creative events – from DJ dance sessions to speakeasy’s and alternative wedding receptions.



On the property is the Doug Fir Restaurant and Lounge which offers classic Northwest fare from 7:00 AM to late night. Come for a Cascade Scramble or Eggs La Bamba and stay for Wild Mushroom Farrotto, famous Fir Burger and a Blackberry Cosmo, DF Belinni or a pint of Pacific Northwest draft beer. Designed by architect Jeff Kovel of Skylab Design, the Doug Fir Lounge offers cutting edge music nightly, and is a Northwest destination for the best in musical acts.
