The Hoxton, Portland officially opened its doors on November 12. The much anticipated opening was the second U.S location for the Hoxton brand. The Hoxton, based in London is planning two additional openings in the United States later in 2019—The Hoxton Chicago and The Hoxton Downtown L.A. The Hoxton Portland, located in historic Old Town Chinatown in a building dating back to 1906, features 119 rooms and three restaurants including a cocktail bar.

Each of the 119 guest rooms features a northwest modern ambiance and includes a walk-in shower, a wardrobe and desk. Hoxton in-room amenities also include complimentary Wi-Fi, one hour of free calls to anywhere in the world, a mini fridge and a daily ‘emergency’ breakfast bag delivered right to each door. Guests can choose between four room types—the Shoebox, Snug, Cozy and Roomy

The Hoxton Portland also offers multiple meeting and event opportunities in The Apartment which is scheduled to open later this year. By day, this space is perfect for meetings, brainstorming sessions, photo and video shoots, and presentations. By night, it is ideal for private events and parties. The Apartment includes separate meeting rooms in a variety of sizes. This space will also host workshops and master classes available to guests.

A defining quality of The Hoxton is its incorporation of the diverse neighborhood culture. The Hoxton Portland invites local culture into its space by offering local artists and start-ups the opportunity to showcase their work. Hox Friends is a program to initiate engagement between hotel guests and locals by inviting neighborhood members to handpick 10 reads and insights about the area to share with guests. This program establishes a relationship between hotel guests and locals, immersing visitors in the rich cultural aspects of the surrounding neighborhood.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Portland will be home to the first Ritz-Carlton in the Pacific Northwest. Developer BPM Real Estate Group is bringing the brand to the city, with an anticipated opening in early 2023. Plans call for a 35-story tower with 251 hotel rooms and 138 residential units, including eight penthouses.
