The Jupiter Hotel will be the stomping ground for CascadiaJS 2014. By taking over the entire property, we get a unique opportunity both indoors and out to build an awesome couple of days of interacting with your JavaScript community.

Your stay at the Jupiter Hotel and conference venue covers July 30th, 4pm to August 2, 11am for checkout. 'Jupiter Hotel single add-on' is a private room single queen-size bed. 'Jupiter Hotel double beds add-on' is a private room with two queen-size beds.

Our on-site Jupiter lodging is SOLD OUT. Please see below for a great alternative. We highly recommend you book for July 30-Aug. 2 for maximum conference enjoyment!

The Hotel Rose

We've arranged for our alternative lodging block at the Hotel Rose--call 503.484.1402 and tell them you're with CascadiaJS to arrange your stay. There's at least one bus line that's fast and consistent to get you quickly over to the venue that is 1.2 miles away. We love our public transit here.

We're very excited that the places we've found for you will help create a warm Cascadian experience.

Travel: Getting to (and around in) Flannelville, USA

Portland is the smallest of our collective Cascadian tech city centers. The closest airport is PDX, accessible by the public transit (MAX) as well as cars. All Trimet passes are good for rail (MAX), streetcar, as well as the bus system; they can be purchased at the airport.

Carshares are also available via car2go and zipcar.

While Portland does not have an Uber presence, but it does have its very own driver-owned cab company: Radio Cab! They can be reached via phone (at (503) 227-1212) and are usually very responsive.
