A crop of hot new hotels boasting historic structures, luxurious accommodations and scene-stealing backdrops will offer visitors new ways to experience Portland’s quirky sights, famed eats and handcrafted drinks this year.
The 120-room boutique Hi-Lo Hotel opens in downtown’s historic Oregon Pioneer Building in April. The project preserves Huber’s Café, Portland’s oldest restaurant, and introduces Tusk from Ava Gene’s Joshua McFadden. Hilton adds the Porter Hotel to the downtown landscape late this year under its luxury boutique brand, Curio. The 299-room hotel will indulge guests with a rooftop restaurant, underground pool, sauna and spa.
Business and leisure travelers can appreciate local art and elegant amenities in the AC by Marriott, opening downtown in the fall. The 204-room property will include a bar and lounge, meeting space, high-tech media salons and a fitness center. A block from the Willamette River, the Hyatt House Hotel is opening in July, adding 203 rooms and catering to extended-stay visitors with ample comforts of home.
Finally, McMenamins is creating a 47-room hotel and 11-room B&B at their popular watering hole, the Cornelius Pass Roadhouse in Washington County. An eclectic mix of urban and rural, the project is slated for completion in late 2016.
