PORTLAND, Ore.—Marriott International Inc. is pleased to announce that Residence Inn Portland Downtown/Pearl District is now open, making it the first hotel in the Pearl District—a thriving, revitalized area of the inner city that is internationally recognized for its successful urban renewal efforts.
The six-story, 223-suite hotel offers a variety of layouts that include a studio, and one- and two-bedroom suites. All rooms feature separate living and sleeping areas plus fully equipped kitchens that have a refrigerator, microwave, and coffeemaker. Floor-to-ceiling windows present views of the vibrant Pearl District, Downtown Portland, the Cascade Mountains, and the Willamette River. The hotel provides complimentary high-speed internet access, grocery delivery services, a manager’s reception on Monday and Wednesday evenings, and free local and USA Today newspapers.
The Residence Inn Portland Downtown/Pearl District features 4,100 square feet of meeting space, inclusive of 2,010-square-foot and 425-square-foot ballrooms and 1,600 square feet of pre-function space. The sustainable building, which aspires to LEED Silver Certification, boasts a 1,600-square-foot courtyard with a fire pit as well as an indoor pool, fitness center, guest laundry facilities, and a business library. A full-service bar will welcome the Pearl District community along with hotel guests, and a 24-hour market accompanies the complimentary hot breakfast buffet served daily.
The Pearl District occupies land on the western banks of the Willamette River with a history tied to the railroads and industrialization of the early 1900s. More recently, it has become a trendy area booming with dozens of breweries and other eateries, community parks, and culturally stimulating art galleries and theaters. Residential enclaves and corporate offices have also contributed to the Pearl District’s renaissance. The five-block Brewery Blocks shopping center, iconic Powell’s City of Books, and Jamison Square are must-see sites in the Pearl District.
“The Pearl District has become a highly desirable destination within the city of Portland,” said Aung Win, general manager of the Residence Inn Portland Downtown/Pearl District. “Marriott is proud to be the first to bring hospitality to this flourishing area and to contribute to the Pearl District’s continuing growth.”
