The Stirrup Room in the Hotel Multnomah

From the back of the postcard:

One of Portland’s finer hotels. Contains 550 rentable rooms as well as many banquet rooms. Also home of the well known Stirrup Room.

Here are some exterior shots of the Stirrup Room and the hotel. If you look closely you can see the cowboys:

Another postcard reveals that the Stirrup Room was “one of the 75 outstanding restaurants in North America” by Holiday magazine.

The colorful room is decorated in the finest traditions of the west, specializing in its famous “chuckwagon lunch” and distinctive hors d’oeuvres.

One table for two had their own pot of coffee! I guess Portlanders have always loved their coffee.

  1. I like the new look! I have to admit that I loved the name “Stumptown Confidential,” though! I enjoy your blog tremendously. Thanks for being around, and thanks for the link.

  2. My wife has an advertisement from 1963 from when her father stayed at the old Hotel Multnomah, and there was also a restaurant called “Golden Knight”, where “Dinner involves pageantry, superb food, and delightfully constructed waitresses in ballet tights and medieval blouses.”

    That must have been a sight to behold…why can’t we have “delightfully constructed waitresses” these days instead of surly servers with attitude?
