When the distinguished Lipman Wolfe Department Store opened in 1912, it was an architectural marvel. Now, more than a century later, it’s a historic architectural marvel, and the proud home of Hotel Monaco, a top-notch choice among hotels in Portland, Oregon. The soaring ceilings, picture windows, and design lines that mimic those of the original department store are all in keeping with preserving Portland’s rich heritage. Inside, you’ll find a show-stopping lobby, a central gathering area where the socializing extends far beyond the wine hour (which, by the way, is packed with offbeat events and interesting people every night). Throughout the hotel, you’ll feel as if you stepped inside the well-curated home of a world traveler, with whimsical and vintage touches everywhere you turn.
