PORTLAND, Ore.—Provenance Hotels will open Dossier, a new upscale hotel, in the heart of downtown Portland in summer 2017. The 205-room hotel located at SW Park Avenue and SW Alder Street will be reminiscent of a private club, providing bespoke hospitality in thoughtfully-designed spaces that are both refined and welcoming. The intimate Dossier will offer travelers a respite from the pressures of daily life by focusing on things that are timeless: gracious service, courtesy, and human warmth.
Provenance Hotels has been reaching back in time to find the inspiration for Dossier and, at the same time, with the opening of this hotel the company is moving the guest experience forward and upward. When it comes to the things that matter most, Dossier will elevate. Comfort will be paramount with every detail attended to for a sublimely indulgent sleep experience; effortless arrivals and departures; artwork that inspires; and spaces that are warm, discrete, and understated from the cozy lobby with plush settees to the elegantly appointed penthouse suite.
Impeccable service will be the centerpiece of the Dossier experience. Guests can expect to be greeted at Dossier by hosts who are meticulously trained and fully empowered to realize travelers’ every wish— be it nabbing last-minute reservations at a restaurant that doesn’t offer them, planning weekend adventures to wine country, or assisting with an important business presentation.
Like all Provenance Hotels, Dossier will feature a deeply-integrated art collection. Guestrooms will feature iconic images by Slim Aarons, the photographer who became a friend and confidant of the 20th century’s jet set with unparalleled access to capture and document their rarified lives. Aarons won the trust of his subjects with his discretion and the beautiful way he photographed them. His images evoke a bygone age, a golden time when, as he said, “attractive people were doing attractive things in attractive places.” Through his sun-drenched images, guests can vicariously tap into that carefree spirit.
