Expert reviews
Frommers review:

“This former elementary school (built in 1915) has been brought back to life as possibly the most unusual hotel in town. There’s colorful hand-painted art on the walls, a couch-filled movie-theater pub, a brewery, and a saltwater soaking pool outdoors, for starters. Choose from two restaurants, which continue the quirky decorating vibe with paintings and other artwork.”

Fodors review:

“A lot of people associate Portland with adjectives like “quirky,” “unique,” and “weird.” Well, those adjectives are on full display at McMenamins Kennedy School. McMenamins took over the abandoned school property (which was built in 1915) and repurposed it as a hotel, where you can have a pint in a classroom, enjoy an aged whiskey in detention, [or] enjoy a movie in the old auditorium.”
