A stay in Northwest Portland promises a diverse sampling of the city’s cultural offerings. Encompassing the city’s Old Town Chinatown, Nob Hill and Pearl District neighborhoods, there’s plentiful options for fine dining, sightseeing and experiencing the great outdoors. Best of all, most of these attractions are located conveniently near the heart of downtown Portland and within walking distance of public transportation.
