The first West Coast hotel in the Canopy by Hilton collection of lifestyle properties opened today in Portland, Ore. The 153-room Canopy by Hilton Portland Pearl District is part of a revitalized industrial zone that now features independent boutiques, art galleries, microbreweries, green spaces and eateries.
"As our brand continues to develop in North America, we are thrilled to bring Canopy by Hilton to its first West Coast home in Portland," said Gary Steffen, global head, Canopy by Hilton. "The Pearl District neighborhood is a natural fit for our lifestyle brand, and we look forward to our guests and neighbors enjoying a fresh, comfortable and welcoming experience."
The LEED Gold-certified building features industrial finishes such as hot-rolled steel beams, brick walls and concrete floors in parts of the lobby, café and reception area, which is known as Canopy Central. When it's time to work out, guests head for the hotel's rooftop fitness center. The art curator, Elizabeth Leach, has placed works from local artists around the hotel on permanent display; art in a rotating exhibition space will change regularly.
The guest rooms sport a wood "canopy" that extends over the front of the bed, as well as floor-to-ceiling windows, JBL Horizon Bluetooth alarm clocks, 55-inch TVs, complimentary WiFi and Nespresso machines. Filtered water stations are available on every floor.
"We believe strongly in the Canopy by Hilton brand and the focus on delivering authentic travel experiences that are connected to the hotels and neighborhoods that they call home," said Dave Pollin, co-president and co-founder of the Buccini/Pollin Group. "As a native of Portland, this project is personal for me."
Canopy by Hilton Portland Pearl District offers 1,093 square feet of meeting space, and the hotel also has several unique settings for small and medium-sized groups, such as a community table in the winter garden.
