Portland, Oregon is getting hotel branded with one of the initial Curio Collection by Hilton hotels planned for 2016 opening as a 300-room hotel at Southwest Second Avenue and Jefferson, a 600-room Hyatt Hotel by the Convention Center to open in 2017 and plans for a new 13-story AC by Marriott hotel at Southwest Third Avenue and Taylor Street on a city owned vacant lot.

AC Hotels are a Spain-based hotel chain acquired by Marriott in 2011. Portland is part of a plan to open 30 or more AC Hotels in the USA and Americas. The hotel is in the style of Aloft and Hyatt Place as a brand aimed at younger, social travelers.

  1. I have not heard Portland building a new convention center.

    As it stands now the convention center is in NE Portland next to Rose Garden/Modo Center across the Willammette river from the rest of downtown where these hotels are planned in the SW section which consists of 90% of Portlands downtown area.

    In Portland the river and Burnside draw the quadrant lines.

  2. cant edit—-so the lodgining is near the trimet lightrail lines from the convention center but it isnt that much of an easy walk.
