This pale-stone, 15-story hotel overlooking Director Park is a few blocks from Pioneer Square, the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, the Portland Art Museum, the MAX, and the streetcar. The cozy guest rooms, some of which have outdoor balconies and jetted bathtubs, are adorned with earth tones, plush dark-wood furnishings, and artwork honoring Portland's bridges. The two grand suites have wet bars and gas fireplaces. The inhouse Swank & Swine restaurant and bar is one
of the city's hottest new restaurants.
