Have you ever visited a tiny hotel?
How tiny is too tiny?
Inspired by the trend of tiny houses, the tiny hotel has and continues to enter the U.S. market.
Minimalist travelers will appreciate the design of the tiny hotel which meets all of your travel necessities with an added splash of style and streamlining.
One of the most popular and now well known tiny hotels is the United States is located in Portland Oregon. The Caravan, the Tiny House Hotel, is a cluster of tiny houses located in the heart of Portland’s Alberta Arts District.
A great opportunity for those who perhaps would like to sample the tiny house experience. Six tiny house hotels offer 100- 200 square feet of living space. Each tiny house hotel has its’ own unique identity and accompanying name: Roly Poly, Kangablue, Caboose, Skyline, Tandem, Rosebud. My favorites are the Roly Poly and Kangablue (just in case anyone wants to book a stay for me!)
Cost And Reservations For The Caravan Tiny House Hotel
Very popular and very booked in advance. Last minute reservations would be difficult after perusing the Caravan’s reservation calendar. Cost per night is $145 to $165 plus Portland’s 13.3% hotel tax.

Capsule Hotel Tiny TINY Hotel
There is ‘tiny’ and then there is … the capsule.
A capsule hotel. Does it seem a little odd to have capsule and hotel in the same sentence and connected?
Capsule hotels are not prevalent in the United States. Very popular for the economic Japan traveler in Japan and Hong Kong. There may be a few amenities, but a “capsule” generally measures 6′ 7″ by 3’3″; each capsule is stacked on top of each other and long term stays are probably not a frequent occurrence.
