A WEEKEND AWAY

Party on, grads. Want to celebrate a seemingly endless 20+ years of schooling? Give the graduate in your life the gift of a weekend away... or maybe a staycation if your hometown is the Rose City. Want to make it even more special? Opt for an XX double room and get the whole dorm crew involved. One last hurrah at Jupiter NEXT is exactly what's in order for these fine folks!

ADD AN INSTAX PACKAGE

So you've already booked your scholarly bunch a room at the NEXT. Want to make it even more special? Give the gift of remembering with our Instax PDX package. Your grad will get an Instax mini camera to borrow for the duration of their stay, as well as plenty of film, merch, and a map that shows some of Portland's most Instagrammable hot spots, murals, and more. They'll be able to share their photos with the world (and therefore show what a great gift-giver YOU are!).

SPRING FOR DINNER AND DRINKS

Your grad won't have to go far to experience some of Portland's best restaurants and bars. Central Eastside, where the hotel is located, is right in the center of James Beard awarded chefs, epic American eats, fusion cuisines, and so much more. They can stay indoors and hit up tropical-inspired Hey Love, located in the Jupiter NEXT lobby, or head next door to Doug Fir Lounge to hang out in the futuristic log cabin vibes on the Jupiter Original property. Just let your student-no-longer know you'll cover the bill. Wherever they decide to go, check out our Local Hookups for deals and discounts on local grub!

BUY THEM TICKETS TO A SHOW

Centered on the Jupiter Original property (right next door to Jupiter NEXT), Doug Fir Lounge's underground music venue rocks. Literally. Almost every night of the week features local, national, and even international bands. No matter who's playing, grab tickets for your grad and their gang. They can have dinner, drinks, or just come for the show!

SEND THEM TO THE SPA

A stone's throw from the hotel is our partners at Knot Springs, who offer not only an awesomely relaxing spa atmosphere, but they also maintain some of the best and most breathtaking views of downtown Portland (something we have in common!). If spectacular views, sauna stays, and hot springs are your grad's thing, book them a day at the spa. They'll thank you for it! (And yes, there's a deal on the Local Hookups page!)
