Signs of life at the Crystal Hotel

April 26th, 2011

Looks like the McMenamin Brothers’ projections about opening up at the Crystal Hotel on May 3 might be on track.

Our friend Laura Guimond at Travel Portland shared some photos of the sign-raising last Friday and we thought we’d pass them on to you.

The Brothers will celebrate with a three-day party that will include live music and events at the nearby McMenamins Crystal Hotel & Ballroom across the street.

The Hotel has had an incredible history since its construction in 1911, from hotel to nightclub to bath house, and if the Bro’s are true to form, they’ll preserve every bit of it and proudly put it on display for the unveiling.

Should be a fun Portland event. Hope to see you there!
