Kennedy School, Portland, OR

January 12, 2010

2010 is starting out properly from a travel perspective.  The second hotel I spent some time in this year is another from my master list.  The McMenamins Kennedy School is an arty, interesting extravaganza of a hotel.  Created from the remains of school built in 1915, the hotel offers its own brewery, art house movies, and most importantly of all the Detention bar.

The rooms are all refabricated school rooms complete with chalkboards.  But I digress, and I must confess that the showers here are nothing to write home (or blog about).  Here is what the bathroom looks like:

Fortunately the rest of the hotel is so cool that they get a pass on the plastic shower cubicle.  This place is definitely worth a visit.

The Kennedy School earns a five showerheads rating.
