Portland hotel boom

Portland hotel boom

PORTLAND, Oregon, in the US is bolstering its accommodation stocks reflecting increasing demand from visitors wanting to experience the destination.

Additions include the recently opened The Dossier which offers room delivery from the local Salt and Straw ice creamery; the new Hoxton in an historic building dating back to 1906; the 297-room The Porter which is soon to open as part of Hilton’s Curio Collection; and the quirky Jupiter NEXT which is a revitalised 67-room motor inn on the east side.

The 600-room Hyatt Regency Portland is set to debut late next year near the Oregon Convention Centre as part of a US$224 million project expected to draw substantial meetings to the city.

Portland’s overall hotel stock is projected to increase by 40% in the next three years – for more information on the destination, see www.travelportland.com.
