The Caravan — The Tiny House Hotel bills itself as the first tiny house hotel in the U.S is situated in the funky Alberta Arts District. This hotel consists of four 100- to 200- square-foot houses built on flatbed trailers replete with electric heat, a kitchen with a microwave and hot plate, a full bath with a flush toilet and hot shower. Depending on one's needs choose from the family friendly Caboose or Skyline that sleep 1 to 4 people, the cozier Tandem that offers spacious room for two or four close friends, and the intimate Rosebud that can sleep up to two people.

Each house is outfitted with local coffee while a common area stores items needed to make S'mores and a variety of Portland-themed games. The tiny houses form a circle around a central gathering space replete with a BBQ, fire pit, Adirondack chairs, and a hammock. All throughout this urban lot one finds stained glass, funky metal and recycled art. Those desiring room service can order from nearby Radio Room. So guests can either choose to relax and chill or venture out and explore a number of pubs and restaurants located within easy walking distance of the hotel.

Everett Street Guesthouse is an 1907 Craftsman style guesthouse that's ideal for those looking for a casual oasis away from the urban action. Throughout this warm and inviting guest house, one finds arts and crafts from the innkeeper's previous life as a gallery owner. The inn has two comfortable guest rooms that share a full bath with another 1/2 bath on the main floor. Those desiring even more privacy can check out the separate studio cottage which has its own entrance, private garden area, heated floors, bathroom, flatscreen TV, washer/dryer and a kitchenette.

Included in one's stay is a free wi-fi, a full breakfast, large deck and a dedicated "library room" that contains a computer, work desk, refrigerator and a day bed. Also, one of the rooms has a flatscreen TV. While breakfast is not included with the studio cottage, coffee, teas and breakfast items are provided. In addition, guests can rent cycles on site at a cost of $15/day which includes a helmet and locks.
