Slated to open in spring 2018, the Atticus Hotel is bringing luxury accommodations to historic downtown McMinnville. Starting Sunday, October 1, future guests may make a reservation for one of the 36 distinctive rooms in the independently owned and operated hotel. Reservation dates begin May 1, 2018.
The Atticus Hotel is located in the heart of Willamette Valley Wine Country, which Wine Enthusiast Magazine recently named Wine Region of the Year. A wine lover’s dream, the picturesque area features more than 200 wineries within a short drive of the hotel. Situated in the heart of McMinnville’s Historic District, guests can experience one of Oregon’s most charming main streets, and dozens of tasting rooms, boutique shops and award-winning restaurants, all within steps of the hotel.
“Downtown McMinnville has an amazingly vibrant wine and culinary scene—not to mention the viticultural bounty of the surrounding hills—and the Atticus Hotel is in the middle of it all,” said co-owner Erin Stephenson. “We can’t wait to welcome guests to the Atticus Hotel, allow them to hand off their keys to our valet, send their bags up to one of our 36 uniquely designed rooms, and then watch them head out to explore McMinnville on one of our beautiful Dutch bikes. There’s so much to experience in and around McMinnville, and as a locally-owned and operated hotel, we’re excited to share our insiders’ perspective with guests.”
The intimate design of the Atticus Hotel and the region’s mounting acclaim mean that rooms will book quickly, especially during the busy summer and fall months. In addition to being close to so many wineries, the Atticus Hotel is also a short trip from some of Oregon’s greatest travel destinations—from the beautiful coast to ever-popular Portland, and all of the small towns, mountains and hiking trails in between.
Additionally, the Atticus Hotel is introducing their Luxury Bunkhouse, the first of its kind in the Willamette Valley, designed to be a well-appointed home base for groups seeking to explore McMinnville and surrounding Wine Country. With a wall of luxury bunks, cubbies for six, a handcrafted fireplace, a bar with a wine fridge and a bathroom artfully designed for a crowd, the Luxury Bunkhouse is equipped for late nights of laughter with good friends. Perfect for a group getaway, the Luxury Bunkhouse has been designed to reflect the overall aesthetic of the hotel, which is a sexy spin on a distinctly Oregon-vibe.
The Atticus will also play host to celebrated chef John Gorham’s first restaurant outside of Portland, Third n Tasty. The genius behind Toro Bravo, Tasty n Sons, Tasty n Alder and Shalom Y’all will bring his renowned cooking approach to restaurant-rich McMinnville. Inspired by wine regions throughout the world as well as the bevy of seasonal Willamette Valley produce, Third n Tasty will also offer Gorham’s signature house charcuterie and family-style dishes.
Keen to offer a locally inspired experience, the Atticus Hotel will showcase wares, crafts and bites from Willamette Valley makers. The region is home to an unusually large number of farmers, artists, artisans and wine growers, and the hotel will demonstrate that throughout the property.
Stephenson added, “We are excited to open our doors this spring and show the world all that McMinnville has to offer.”
