The Blind Tiger was a revelation in Portland. Located southwest of the downtown area most heavily covered by tourists, it had a more relaxed and elegant feel while still being convenient to most attractions in the area. The Eight Bells room was spacious and comfortable with two armchairs as well as the king bed. For someone who enjoys natural light, it's a great fit, the room was sun-drenched and bright.
Just stayed at Blind Tiger for the weekend with my boyfriend. We were looking for a cute spot that had charm but also luxury. We stayed in the room titled Eight Bells, and I didn’t want to leave. I loved the unique design features and thoughtful details throughout the hotel. The beds were so comfortable. Even though they had to alter certain things for corona, I still loved the honor pantry and complimentary tea and coffee offerings. I can’t wait to come back when things go back to “normal” and see the hotel in full swing!
Every room has it's own unique feel. Staff was friendly and casual. will be checking out the other Lark Hotels! We loved these quirking, well run boutique hotels. SUCH a nice change from the chain hotels that are nice, but have little character.
This was my first time staying at a Lark property, and I was very pleased. I cannot say enough nice things about the Blind Tiger House. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The accommodations were spacious, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. There were so many small little touches that truly added to the entire experience. I would definitely recommend!
The Blind Tiger was renovated a couple of years ago, but it retained its antique look. Our room had a comfortable king-size and it was spacious. They might consider adding some hooks to hang clothes, other than a thin rack to hold only two items. The room was very clean and the bathroom was well-equipped. A breakfast was ready for us (during COVID times) every morning in the dining room for us to eat where we chose. It included, oatmeal, fruit, yogurt, and pastry. Coffee was available but juice was not. The people who run the B&B were terrific. They were friendly, always helpful, and they responded quickly to all questions. They made our stay very comfortable and glad that we chose the Blind Tiger, They were also knowledgeable about the area. There is a parking lot (reserved for guests) behind the building. A pantry is on the first floor and prices for the items are reasonable--much less than mini bars in typical places. The first floor has several places to sit and relax and the living room has a fireplace that was lit several times a day. There are a couple of restaurants within an easy walking distance. Everything we wanted to visit was within a drive of ten minutes or less. Joggers: There is a park with running/biking trails a couple of miles away, but I found it easy to start my run on Danforth St. Turn right (away from the city center) and head up the street. After about 2/3 of a mile, bear to the right and this will lead you up a hill by an old cemetery and then to a park with short paved trails and wide views. From there, you can run by the hospital and into several neighborhoods.…
