Rustic Authenticity Marks The Interiors Of This Oregon Hotel

Exploring Oregon’s largest wine region just got a little more luxurious. Located in McMinnville, the new Tributary Hotel is a sanctuary of calm elegance for travelers to the Willamette Valley. The eight-room boutique hotel is situated within the 100-year-old Taylor-Dale building at the heart of McMinnville’s historic downtown.

Portland-based MAP Architecture meticulously restored the building, with original details like exposed brick walls and oak beams grounding the space in a sense of rustic authenticity, while Carolyn Richardson of Studio Luray oversaw the interior decor. Downstairs, sister restaurant ōkta continues the hotel’s emphasis on showcasing the unique character of the region, with two-Michelin star Chef Matthew Lightner’s menu drawing inspiration from the region.

Ōkta’s interiors follow suit with restrained and elemental dining areas designed by Hacker Architects in collaboration with Richardson. Explains Hacker’s Corey Martin, design principal for ōkta, “Lightner’s desire to invite people into a transcendent culinary experience pushed us to make the space both a backdrop to the food he creates and an embodiment of the Willamette Valley.”
