The Society Hotel
Portland, Oregon, United States
We'll start with The Society Hotel; it's perhaps the most "Portland" of the hotels in our list on two counts. Firstly, it blurs the line between poshtel (a posh hostel), hotel and rental apartment in a progressive way that's just so typical of the city. Secondly, it's housed in one of the city's oldest buildings (it was originally founded in 1881 as a mariner's apartment complex) and is speckled with artfully distressed antiques and 19th-century spoils to prove it.
