Since it opened in 1915, this historic elementary school has been a beloved fixture of its Northeast Portland neighborhood. McMenamins has renovated the once-abandoned scholastic gem and turned it into Portland's most delightful lodging establishment. Here you'll find 35 comfy guestrooms fashioned from former classrooms (complete with original chalkboards and cloakrooms, private baths, telephones and modems), a truly unique restaurant, multiple cozy bars, a movie theater, soaking pool, and even a working brewery (just wait until the principal hears about this!). Extensive original artwork and historical photographs cover the walls, ceilings, doorways and hallways of this place and the gift shop beckons with mementos of your stay. Lodging rooms at Kennedy School include queen beds as well as a private bathroom, and telephone. Guests may also enjoy complimentary use of the soaking pool and free admission to the movie theater. Kennedy School offers everything your guests will need – 35 classrooms turned guestrooms (complete with original chalkboards), a family-friendly restaurant where the cafeteria used to stand, free Wi-Fi, seasonal live music in the gym, a relaxing soaking pool, onsite brewery, a movie theater and small bars at every turn. Event spaces can accommodate groups of up to 250 people.
