Hilton Portland is set to undergo a huge transformation that is scheduled to be complete in spring 2017. Renovations will include updates to the guest rooms and lobby, a new restaurant and bar, and meeting space.

The 782-room hotel, located in the heart of downtown Portland, is in the early stages of its renovation. They will first update their existing 60,000 square feet of meeting space, and relocating the fitness room. They've also added a 5,500-square-foot ballroom and additional breakout space.

Phase two of renovation includes a redesign of the lobby. Updates will consist of a new front desk, new seating area and a renovated gastropub. The lobby’s design will feature elements of Portland’s natural, unique materials, with inspiration from the ‘60s. The Executive Tower building of Hilton Portland will also go through a renovation. The building will become a boutique lifestyle hotel concept and be renamed.

“We are excited to begin the process of redesign and look forward to the finalization of the hotel’s new concept, which will enhance the comfort level of both leisure and business guests,” says Eric Walters, general manager. “We will fill the needs for large groups and conventions by incorporating additional meeting space into Hilton Portland and continuing to reflect the unique essence of the city of Portland within our walls.”

A recent survey demonstrates the resilience of the hospitality industry and the dedication of the industry’s professionals.

 

Blame it on the eight seasons of “Portlandia” or simply on the way people rave about the city when they return from visiting. Portland is experiencing a hotel boom. Collectively, the recent wave in hotel development has resulted in an increase in room inventory of nearly 50 percent since 2016.

 

This small Oregon city is big on charm and amenities. 

Situated in central western Oregon, tucked between the Cascade and Coastal mountain ranges, Corvallis is in the heart  of Willamette Valley and home to Oregon State University.

Population: 60,000 with Oregon State University students making up about 40% of the population.
