MyGayGetaway.com notes: The perfect space for gay urban nomads, the Jupiter Hotel provides unique, stylish, and affordable accommodations in the heart of Portland. Beginning as a motor inn in the 1950’s, the hotel has evolved to cater to the modern LGBT traveller, yet has not lost its unique 50’s modernist character and charm. Boasting with personality, gay travellers will soon understand why the Jupiter hotel has been featured in publications such as GQ and Elle Décor. The 81 private guest rooms open up to public areas where guests are encouraged to mingle and explore the surrounding city.
The Doug Fir Lounge and Restaurant is a hip gay friendly bar and small concert venue. Billed as one of the best venues in the country, guests will be treated to incredible live performances while savouring a delicious array of specialty cocktails and hand-crafted meals surrounded by 1950’s modernist décor.

For modern travelers, cultural creatives and anyone who lives outside the box.
The Jupiter Hotel is a boutique hotel centrally located in SE Portland, Oregon. We welcome guests of all kinds to join our community and indulge in urban life. Our spaces are designed to allow people whatever level of togetherness or privacy they're looking for. We offer affordability, insist upon originality, and our goal is always to connect you to the vibrancy of Portland.
The Jupiter Hotel began with a vision in 2004 when we renovated an 81 room motor lodge and connected travelers to the vibrancy of Portland’s east side. That vision is alive and well as we prepare to open Jupiter NEXT, a 67 room evolution of those original values. Urban. Connected. Vibrant. Whether you want the lively, in the middle-of-it-all feel of the Original Jupiter Hotel, or the elevated, watch-the world-go-by views of Jupiter NEXT, we have a room for you.
There's a 24-hour art gallery plus a contemporary courtyard patio with a fire pit. Bike rentals and parking (surcharge) are available.
Our 81 rooms contain items such as iPod docking stations, shag pillows, and chalkboard doors. Additionally, the rooms also have blue wall panels with photo murals on the walls.
We have also earned a reputation for being a very gay-friendly hotel.
Neighboring the Jupiter Hotel property is world-renowned music venue + restaurant, the Doug Fir Lounge. Whether you're looking for your first bite or your last cocktail and everything in between, the Doug Fir is your one stop shop for delicious food, tasty drinks, and great live music.
Opening 2018 Jupiter NEXT
Jupiter NEXT is a sophisticated and elevated expansion adjacent to the original Jupiter Hotel. Same focus on design, art, and creativity. Same emphasis on service. Same efforts to connect you to the vibrancy of Portland’s urban life. Jupiter NEXT stays true to these values while allowing you to retire to a softer more luxurious guest room at the end of your day.
The Jupiter Hotel was born out of a desire for a hotel with good design aesthetics that didn't break the bank. We wanted a place where you could go as stranger and end up being part of a community, where the underground became the obvious, where you were rewarded for looking a little deeper. The Jupiter changes every season, every year. As owners we continue to evolve alongside our beloved hotel. We hope that when you visit, you too will profit from your time here. - Kelsey Bunker Co-Founder
