Two years ago, my pop and his brothers stayed here during a visit to Portland back when it was still a Red Lion Inn. AC was an option and I'm 99.9% sure there was no big-city like rooftop restaurant. So it's metamorphosis since then into Hotel Eastlund left me a bit speechless. But with Portland's own Holst Architecture behind the project (the firm behind former Days Inn-turned-Hotel Modera and Ziba HQ), it should have come as no surprise. Topped by Altabira City Tavern, the restaurant and rooftop deck offer spectacular city views that give Departure's a run for it's cash money.
