While we all love Oregon for its incredible outdoors and adventures, the state’s second largest city Eugene has tons to offer beyond hikes and scenic vistas (although the city has those too). Eugene boasts an eclectic mix of arts and culture that’s distinctly Oregon with truly unique shopping and dining. At the center of it all is the 5th Street Public Market filled with enchanting local stores, restaurants, tasting rooms, and eateries adjacent to two upscale boutique hotels.
The new art-centric Gordon Hotel is the perfect way to experience the market, and just in time for the holidays is the ready-to-give Holiday Gift Package for a memorable present that includes a one-night stay at a special rate and $25 to spend at 5th Street Public Market. This one-of-a-kind experience may be redeemed for a stay anytime between January 2 – December 30, 2022 (blackout dates apply).
Guests of The Gordon Hotel enjoy a chance to connect with the city’s artists and makers with signature perks like local beer/wine served at check in for those 21+, complimentary lobby snacks like granola bars + sodas, ongoing lobby activities such as artist showcases, live music and classes, use of cruiser bikes for exploring, handy “tasting maps” for navigating the market’s plethora of winery/brewery options, and even an art bar in the lobby for empowering guests’ own creations. (With nearly 200 pieces of original local art on display, it’s easy to become inspired to make your own masterpiece.)
The hotel’s 82 guest rooms, many of which are pet-friendly, all have the coziest of robes, tons of natural light, and beds with handmade headboards milled from local timber, outfitted with the plushest of linens. But most importantly, they all have easy access to the 5th Street Public Market’s amenities.
Morning coffee must-haves; afternoon chocolate cravings; and evening craft cocktails can all be procured within steps of the lobby from artisanal vendors who call the market home. Or if meandering outside the hotel seems like too much, on the ground floor The Gordon Tavern offers classic American comfort food with a Pacific Northwest flair, satisfying a need for local fare without effort.
It’s easy to explore Eugene and what makes this Oregon city special from your room at The Gordon – where local experiences and connections are just at your doorstep.
