Autograph Collection Hotels, Marriott International's portfolio of independent properties, has added the 120-room Hi-Lo Hotel in Portland, Ore. The new hotel is in the 1910 Oregon Pioneer Building, once known as the Railway Express Building.
 
"We are thrilled to welcome Hi-Lo Hotel to Autograph Collection Hotels' dynamic portfolio as the brand's first hotel in Oregon," said Julius Robinson, vice president and global brand lead for the brand. "With its rich history and authentic, compelling design concept, we believe the hotel is poised to deliver standout, 'exactly like nothing else' experiences for both global travelers and Portland locals alike."
 
Each of the guest rooms and suites features modern organic furnishings and local handcrafted bathroom amenities by Maak Lab. For drinks and dinner, the property offers the Lo Bar and Alto-Bajo, serving modern Mexican fare. The culinary team is led by chef Chip Barnes, an alumni of Chicago's Michelin-starred Moto restaurant.
 
"We are pleased to invite guests to discover the talent and flavor of downtown Portland through our authentic cuisine, profound history and collection of regional art," said Eric Paul, general manager of the hotel. "Set in a truly iconic building, Hi-Lo Hotel was thoughtfully designed to bring guests on a journey of local experiences throughout their stay, highlighting the city's unique vibrancy and unmistakable opulence."
 
Hi-Lo Hotel has 3,347 square feet of meeting meeting space with state-of-the-art technology. The property also features a 24-hour fitness center.
