The Jupiter Hotel continues a long tradition of staying outside of the box with its newest room package: KEEP PORTLAND WEIRD – A STUMPTOWN ADVENTURE. With national notoriety from the hit IFC show “Portlandia” and the reputation of quirkiness from the long-standing “Keep Portland Weird” movement, the real Portland is a spectacle you have to experience to understand. The Jupiter Hotel’s Stumptown Adventure gives guests a chance to walk among the Portland natives and explore Stumptown – in disguise and up close.
As part of the room package, The Jupiter Hotel provides the five things one needs to be a true Portlander; a quirky place to call home base, a map of the bizarre, the strange, and the true City of Roses, the requisite Portland attire and attitude, a strange and curious culinary and oddity tour and an eco-friendly, sustainable and alternative mode of transportation.
Guests sleep at the Jupiter Hotel by night and explore Portland by day. Armed with the iconic Portlandia attire - vintage flannel, stick-on oversized moustaches and thick-framed no-lens glasses - as well as a map of 26 insider’s tips on kooky locations, Jupiter Hotel visitors roam the streets of Stumptown in search for hidden treasures that give Portland its weird name.
Highlights of the Stumptown Adventure include a visit to the World’s Largest Hat Museum, a short trip down the aisle for vending-machine matrimony at the Church of Elvis, Bloody Mary’s at Le Bistro Montage named after Marilyn Manson, bacon-topped maple bars at Voodoo Doughnut and more.
The Jupiter Hotel partners with unique Portland businesses to provide discounts to the odities and adventures that make Portland a rare expereience. Included in this package are discounts to The Freaky-But-True Peculiarium, PDX Pedicab, EastBurn Bar Tap and Grill and Music Millenium, home of the “Keep Portland Weird” movement.
In a city described as “a place where young people go to retire”, where the lifestyle of a chicken is protected, where ear guages, fuzzy beards and two story bicycles rule, The Jupiter Hotel’s Keep Portland Weird Experience is the most authentic way for interested travelers to get a first-hand look at what makes Portland tick.

An Overnight Stay – Stay the night in one of Jupiter Hotel’s converted travel lodge rooms, complete with modern furnishings, a queen-sized bed, full wall murals, chalkboard doors and green amenities.
