McMenamins Kennedy School - an historic school building converted into an urban resort! There's cool old hotel rooms with the original classroom furnishings, a dine-in cinema, a saltwater soaking pool, restaurants, bars, a brewery. Insane!
Since its 1915 opening, this historic elementary school has been a beloved fixture of its Northeast Portland neighborhood. McMenamins renovated the once-abandoned scholastic gem and turned it into Portland's most unique hotel. Wonderful gardens, awesome beer, fun place to stay with older elementary aged kids. Large dogs are OK! A plus for us.
