Portland Accommodations: The Blue Plum
The Blue Plum
This handsome inn in the Irvington district was built in 1900. It offers four rooms with private baths, some of which can be combined into suites. A major attraction of the Blue Plum is the attentively prepared breakfasts that feature fresh Northwest ingredients. The same attention to delicious detail is found in their afternoon tea. The dining room and living room are spacious and comfortable, with a carved fireplace as a notable feature. The vintage furnishings disguise the modern amentities such as wireless Internet access and convenient public transportation. The Blue Plum is in an excellent location—the beautiful neighborhood is a pleasure for walking, and the inn is very close to the shops and restaurants of Broadway, as well as near the Lloyd Center shopping mall and the Oregon Convention Center. And it’s just a short trip downtown.
