Located in the up-and-coming Lloyd District, the DoubleTree by Hilton - Portland is a great option for business and leisure travelers alike. The spacious rooms, laundry list of amenities, and the hotel’s commitment to sustainable practice (fun fact: the DoubleTree by Hilton Portland was the first full-service hotel in the West to earn the Green Seal Certified label back in 2006) make it a popular destination for Portland travelers
The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and overall pretty standard for a Hilton property. If you’re in luck, you’ll snag a room with a balcony, which provides excellent views of the city or the Cascade mountains.
The bathrooms are a bit drab and outdated, but if you upgrade to a suite, you can snag a whirlpool tub--perfect for soothing the muscles after a long day of trekking around Portland.
The lobby of the DoubleTree by Hilton Portland is large and inviting, and there’s plenty of places to sit. The modern decor also lends a chic, upscale feel to the space.
The DoubleTree by Hilton - Portland gives away fresh, warm, delicious cookies. Don’t leave the lobby without one!

Just a short drive away, Le Pigeon (5-minute drive), one of Portland’s finest dining establishments, is a can’t-miss. The restaurant serves up innovative French-inspired dishes in a communal dining room that encourages conversation (most likely over the amazing food) with your neighbor. Another standout in the neighborhood is Nostrana (7-minute drive), an Italian spot with a cool, industrial vibe that dishes out some of the best pizza and pasta in Portland.
Spirit of 77 (4-minute drive) is a great sports bar in the Lloyd District that projects a variety of sporting events on their signature screen (which is a whopping 16x9) and has a ton of games (including foosball, darts, and basketball) to keep you entertained while you drink. If you’re in the mood for a something a little more upscale, head over to the Teardrop Lounge (9-minute walk). The bar has a cool, lounge-y vibe and serves a mean cocktail.
