Go Back to School

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 20, 2006

What a unique experience this was! The hotel is a refurbished one-story elementary school, spread out over 1 residential block. Overall it was great fun. There was interesting art all over the school, great food and drink, and very nice, hip, service staff.

Each classroom is broken up into two hotel rooms, so you share a hallway with another guest. And each room is named. If you want a unique experience, this is the place to stay.

I think the only negative would be the beds (too soft for me) and the thin walls. But that wouldn't keep me from staying here again or trying the other locations in the McMenamin chain.

Unique Quality: lush gardens, soaking pool, 3 narrow bars, restaurant, brewery on site

rooms have chalkboards, ceiling fans, shower

You've got Detention!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 3, 2004

For those of you who are sick of the same old cookie-cutter rooms, head to the Kennedy School and have yourself a good time! Housed in a refurbished 1915 elementary school building, this hotel has it all! There is a restaurant and courtyard, various bars including the "Detention Bar" in which you can still smoke, a theatre with comfy couches and lazy-boys as seats, a soaking pool, and best of all, individually decorated guestrooms made out of the old classrooms. The original chalkboards are still there! Enjoy the fanciful and funky artwork on the walls and don't forget to try one of the McMenamins microbrews.

Rates for a queen room are $99-$109 and includes breakfast. Also, the theatre, bars, and restaurant are always open to non-guests. And if you like the McMenamins style and brews, explore their other hotels and pubs located in Oregon & Washington.

Directions: Located further away from downtown and closer to the airport, but worth the extra mile!
