Ask any Portlander what the most haunted spot in town is, and chances are that she will point you in the direction of the White Eagle. This old-school tavern and lodge was built in 1905 and was once a brothel. It still has an old-time lodge feel to it that harkens back to Portland's past as a logging and port community. It’s gone through considerable changes since it’s early days, and is now operated by the McMenamin family, who own a slew of excellent brewpubs across the Willamette Valley. The 11 simple rooms here are all on one floor and share a couple of common bathrooms. In the true McMenamin’s style, there are murals on the walls of the common areas and hallways, as well as photos from the hotel’s salubrious heyday. The cleaning staff here report the occasional encounter with the resident ghouls. Their advice: if a ghost bothers you, ask him politely to leave you be and he’ll vanish back into the ether.
