Luxury Lodging for Portland Sport Fans
While Portland can sometimes fly under the radar as a sports destination, the fact is, Stumptown fans love their teams as much as their microbrews. Nicknamed “Soccer City U.S.A.,” Portland boasts two soccer teams – the Timbers and Thorns – as well as the NBA team the Trail Blazers, the world champion Rose City Rollers, the WHL Winterhawks, minor league baseball teams, auto racing, mountain sports and more. It’s a fun place for sports fans – with tax-free merch sales as a bonus. The downtown location of the Kimpton Hotel Vintage puts you just a kick, throw or quick skate away from all the action.
Stay near the Veterans Memorial Coliseum
A quick 1.2 mile jaunt from the Vintage in the Rose Quarter, the Veterans Memorial Coliseum is home to the WHL Winterhawks. It also hosted Trail Blazer games for 25 years, so NBA buffs will want to visit just to soak up the classic basketball history.
Portland Hotel near the Moda Center
Catch a Trail Blazers game at Moda Center, Portland’s premier indoor arena (formerly known as Rose Garden Arena), and keep an eye on the calendar for other events, from figure skating to rodeo. Just over a mile away from the Hotel Vintage, it's an easy walk or drive to the Moda Center.
Hotel Close to Providence Park
Less than a mile from the Kimpton Vintage, spend matchday at historic Providence Park, home of the Major League Soccer’s Portland Timbers and the National Women’s Soccer League’s Portland Thorns FC. Find out first-hand why Portland earned its "Soccer City U.S.A." nickname. (Hint: if you’re sensitive to loud cheering, you might want to bring along some ear plugs.)
Visit Portland International Raceway
If it’s on wheels, it’s racing around Portland International Raceway. From Thursday night MotoCross – “the greatest show on dirt” – to professional series road course sports car racing, you’ll find the thrills just a ten minute drive from the hotel.
