Fresh from a top-to-toe renovation, the Fifty banishes cookie cutter in favor of a creative style and midcentury accents. Bespoke artworks dot the double height lobby, though it’s the gorgeous curved wooden staircase that dominates the newly open plan space. A floor above are the Club Room and Den, successful common rooms where guests settle into the leather chesterfield sofas or tobacco hued occasional chairs, or meet for the continental breakfast spread or happy hour from 5 – 6 p.m.
Bed & Bath
Popular with business and family travelers, rooms at the Fifty are huge by New York standards, starting at 325 square feet. All have signature Affinia beds, 42” flat-screen TVs, work stations, coffee makers and mini fridges, plus renovated bathrooms with over-tub showers and eco toiletries. Studio Suites are especially good for groups, outfitted with twin beds, full kitchens (which can be stocked in advance) and optional sleeper sofas.
There’s no restaurant, but a hearty continental breakfast spread is served in the Club Room from 7 – 10 a.m. every morning, and guests can pick up snacks and wine from “The Cupboard” located in the lobby. Celebrated Indian restaurant, Mint, supplies the room service menu from 11 a.m. – 11 p.m. As a popular stop for business travelers, the hotel gym is open 24 hours a day and a VIPaws pet program is available (food and water bowls, dog stairs etc.) for four-legged guests.
In the Area
Get a culture fix at the Museum of Modern Art, just three blocks north, then keep walking up to New York’s shared backyard, Central Park, for endless seasonal activities including ice skating in the winter and outdoor concerts during the summer. For retail therapy, prepare to get lost among the racks in Bloomingdale’snearby flagship store, or splurge on designer duds in Saks Fifth Avenue. Foodies shouldn’t miss a meal at chef Geoffrey Zakarian’s modern American restaurant, the National , or make it a classic steak night at New York institution, Smith & Wollensky.
How to Get There
Stay here! Super nice, helpful staff who happily took care of any request we had! Special thanks to Scott for answering all our questions and helping us make the most of our weekend. Well appointed rooms with comfy beds, fun yellow robes, and a Keurig coffee maker! They have cute, bright yellow bikes free to use! Perfect location, close to all public transport. You don’t need a car to tour around Portland! This Staypineapple Hotel met all our expectations and we definitely stay here again the next time we visit Portland!
This hotel is a great place to stay in Portland. The staff was amazing, I dealt with 3 different employees and was impressed by them all. We had some problems logging onto WIFI and Scott at the desk kept working on it until until it was resolved. A business is all about how the staff deals with problems.
Nice room, lots of cool little touches like individual quilts on the beds. Location is good, with a nice view of the river.
We chose to come to Portland for a team offsite. We have about 20 people on our team (who work around the world). This was the perfect spot for us to hold this 2 day offsite! The hotel is great. The staff were awesome to work with. The little touches, like the pineapple/coconut cupcakes and pineapple water (who knew pineapple water would be so delicious?), the meeting space was ideal for our team, the food was great and the rooms were super nice. Only complaint - and not even a complaint - was the temperature in the rooms. It is winter, so the heat was on. The rooms did get a little warm - but we were able to open our windows and request fans. The location was great - especially because both days we chose to walk to the local Food Cart Pods for lunch. Everything we needed or wanted was walkable to the hotel, always a requirement for our offsites. I got great feedback from my team. Thanks to Sara and her team for making it a great stay over for our whole team!
From the moment we walked in, friendly service is what it's all about. Incredible really!
The room was clean and nice comfortable beds and such a cool vibe about the place. The location was ideal for tourists and business alike. they had me and I will seek out StayPineapple properties in the future. The only downside was there was a bit of noise from the other rooms, thin walls!
From the guys at the check in counter, to the amazing crew of waiters and bartenders, this place was great! The rooms had a very European feel to them, and the beds were really comfy. I will definitely stay here when I come back.
