Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights in the United States have evolved in recent decades. However, LGBT Americans may still face some legal and many social challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents, particularly in states with large conservative populations, such as in the Deep South; in rural areas; and in some Native American tribal nations.
U.S. federal law does not explicitly include protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. In June 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that sexual orientation and gender identity are included under “sex” as a prohibited ground of employment discrimination in the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Hotel Lucia (HL) is now a staple in our places to stay while in Portland. It’s downtown location gives it great access to public transportation (TriMet train) to explore the city. The exterior is well lit specifically the SW Harvey Milk St. side where I was able to take a smoke break & not break any rules. To those who are uncomfy when encountering the homeless, take a breathe and simply give them a firm “no” as you keep walking. This part of Portland shouldn’t deter you from staying & exploring downtown or HL. Living in LA, it’s unfortunately part of our city life.
Location is awesome! Lobby is very cool and the coffee and tea is great in the am – they have a craft beer hour from 5:30 to 6:30 so if you enjoy beer this is a nice plus! Rooms are good – very clean – beds are super comfy!
Imperial restaurant is attached which is super convenient – good food and a great vibe!
Everyone we met was super nice and helpful! Will definitely stay again.

2. McMenamins Crystal Hotel 3* – Gay Friendly Hotels Portland OR
McMenamins Crystal Hotel offersaccommodation in the heart of . Guests can enjoy multiple on-site and live entertainment.
For your comfort, the musically themed rooms featureand free toiletries. Detached shared bathrooms located outside of the bedroom are available for guest use.
Free Wi-Fi is provided for all guests at McMenamins Crystal Hotel. There is a 24-hour front desk at the property. The on-siteis open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Guests can relax and enjoyand weekend comedy shows or take a swim in the subterranean .
Set in a building built in 1911, this quirky rock and roll–themed hotel is across the road from the Crystal Ballroom, a 12-minute walk from the Portland Art Museum, and 4 miles from Washington Park.
Eclectic rooms with vivid colors are named after famous musicians, and offer city views and private bathrooms. Suites add en suite facilities. Kids age 6 and under stay at no charge with an adult.
There’s a relaxed restaurant, a casual pub, and a basement bar offering live music. Other amenities include an indoor saltwater pool and a music-themed art gallery.
The rooms have been thematically decorated with counter-culture song motifs from the sixties–we had the China Cat room (from the Grateful Dead song), and our friends had the Somebody to Love. A lot of creativity went into the whole hotel. They have a restored salt water soaking pool in the basement (one of the many old photographs on display show this as one of the seminal gay bath-houses, if you’ll pardon the expression.) The attached restaurant has good breakfasts, and a fine selection of their micro-brewed beers.
It is in a great location across the street from a Whole Foods and a block from Powell’s Bookstore.
Apparently the hotel is one of a ‘chain’ of historical restorations by the McMenamins brothers, who have helped give Portland the amazing character it has. I’ve been traveling a long time, and I still cringe at a hotel over $100 a night, but I’m getting used to it. The $140 tab for the Crystal was well worth it!
Depending on the room you book, you may have a shared bath, but the bathrooms and the room itself were all very clean. We were on the 3rd floor, so we didn’t hear much from the restaurant or the bar, but we did hear the recycling truck at 4am!
After a day walking around the city, I cannot recommend the soaking pool highly enough. It was dreamy to put my aching legs into that hot water, and I slept incredibly well.

As a gay, single traveler I found the hotel ideal. All the desk staff were gracious and helpful. The location is very central making it easy to walk everywhere – even over to the Eastside across the Burnside Bridge. Excellent restaurants and bars, including gay bars, nearby. Breakfast the usual continental but fresh and good variety. Would definitely recommend and certainly would stay there on a return visit.
Complimentary breakfast is included. More expansive than your typical continental breakfast. Free coffee, both in-house and take-away cups available. Within walking distance to Powell’s bookstore (expansive), Buffalo Exchange (clothing- amazing deals), multiple dining/ multiple coffee; on the trolley line.
The bottom line: great staff, very good breakfast, close to amenities, walking distance to just about everything. Recommended as a well-priced comfortable stay, as long as it is in the Annex, for both families, couples and gay travellers.
The Mark Spencer is in a great location for exploring Portland. It is on the edge of where downtown becomes the Pearl District. The fantastic Powell’s City of Books is a block away, as is Jake’s Famous Crawfish (where I had the best salmon of my life!). The southbound streetcar runs right in front of the hotel, and the MAX train is about 4-5 short blocks away.
The hotel is in close proximity to a few popular gay bars, so late night noise is an issue, particularly on the weekends. I’m an extremely sound sleeper, so I had no trouble even with the window open, but lighter sleepers might want to bring earplugs.
This hotel has really eclectic charm and character. We loved the views and style of our room. The sheets are the softest sheets we’ve ever slept on and by far one of the most comfortable beds we’ve ever slept on. Best night sleep you’ll ever have! The staff are kind and friendly and we had a really nice stay. The only thing we wished is that the room we stayed in had a microwave and coffee pot, but the location was really close to a few local coffee shops.
We stayed for one night and wish we could have stayed longer. We booked the premier corner king with kitchen and it was perfect. Great view of the city and the perfect size for our needs. The location is amazing, close to Powell’s and Nola doughnuts, walking distance to the river and many other shops. We plan to stay here again the next time we’re in Portland.
I often stay at the Mark Spencer while visiting Portland for work. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and often greet me by name and welcome me back. The rooms are well appointed and the location is great while also still quiet and comfortable. The evening wine reception and cookies are a nice addition, and I am often given a free room upgrade upon arrival. I have recommended others stay here and they also had a great experience.
