Check out these new properties for 2018 in the fabulous city of Portland, Oregon – everything from luxury accommodation to funky neighbourhood/arty/creative vibe boutique offerings, with something to suit every client.
The recently-opened Dossier is the latest property in the luxury Provenance Hotels collection. Reminiscent of a private club with old world hospitality, elegant design and gracious service, the hotel is also a hub for one of the city’s best contemporary art collections and home to the swanky Opal Bar and restaurant, serving New American cuisine and “come back for more” cocktails. You can even have ice cream delivered directly to your room from local Portland ice creamery, Salt and Straw. Located one block from popular Pioneer Square and a short walk to some of the city’s must do attractions including the iconic Powell’s bookstore – the largest independent new and used bookstore in the world.
With a reputation for being located in creative neigbourhoods (the first Hoxton opened in Shoreditch, London), Portland is the perfect complement to this eclectic, design-forward hotel brand which positions itself as the “anti hotel”.
When the doors open in the US Summer of 2018, expect the hotel to blend right in with the robust community of makers, microbreweries, baristas and incredible food offerings as The Hoxton embraces the spirit of the city. It will also bring the outside in with cultural events, vibrant public spaces and locally focused restaurants and bars.
The Hoxton is located in an iconic, historic building dating back to 1906 in Portland’s Old Town Chinatown district.
Portland already has a reputation for being a culinary destination and The Porter will enhance this with the recent announcement that 297-room hotel, opening April 2018, will offer four premier dining options.
Booking a room at this hotel will be essential to overcome the inevitable food coma from indulging at either the Terrane Italian Kitchen + Bar offering a soulful Italian-inspired menu, the fabulous rooftop xport bar & lounge where crafted cocktails will make great accompaniments to the small plates menu, Chiosco which offers a Neapolitan pizza window serving gourmet pizza for those on the move and Portland Exchange Grocer & Goods for those looking to create their own picnics for enjoyment at the nearby waterfront park.
The quirky Jupiter Hotel – a revitalised 81 room motor-inn, located in Portland’s buzzy east side – is getting an older sibling! Maintaining the same focus on design, art and creativity that makes the Jupiter unique, Jupiter NEXT will offer guests all these values but with a higher concentration on sophistication.
Scheduled to open on 1 June 2018, the 67-room hotel will also have a restaurant and a jungle-themed cocktail bar providing a luxurious escape from the bustling streets but still connecting guests to the vibrancy of urban life including neighbouring Doug Fir Lounge which hosts some of the best music acts as they roll through Portland.
The much-anticipated Hyatt Regency Portland, directly across the street from the Oregon Convention Centre, is set to open in late 2019. The $224 million project is Portland’s biggest hotel project and will be the Hyatt’s first full-service hotel in Oregon.
It is expected to draw substantial conference business to the city as it will offer meeting planners a committable block of 500 rooms and is easily accessible to the city’s major sites, sporting attractions and local restaurants. For more information on the Hyatt www.oregonmetro.gov/hotel
