If you’re looking for a stylish getaway with top-notch amenities in the heart of downtown Portland, look no further than Hilton Portland Downtown. The hotel clearly poured a lot of resources into a recent redesign, and the end result is a contemporary masterpiece that would make a perfect homebase for your next stay in Portland.
The rooms at Hilton Portland Downtown have that brand-new, never-been-slept-in feel. The recent redesign added custom beds, contemporary decor, and flat-screen TVs. Upgrade to a suite, which are located on the higher floors of the hotel, for a separate bedroom and parlor area (not to mention killer views of the city).
YOU SHOULD KNOW Wifi isn’t free at the Hilton Portland Downtown, so if you need to connect, expect to pay an extra fee.
The contemporary finishes in the bathroom give the space a luxury feel, but in terms of space, they could definitely be a little bigger.
The lobby at Hilton Portland Downtown is definitely the crown jewel of the property. The contemporary light fixtures, high ceilings, communal tables, and contemporary color palette make for an inviting space you’ll want to kick back and relax in.
Most hotel gyms are nothing more than dated cardio machines and a few sets of free weights. But not at Hilton Portland Downtown. This newly renovated gym is surprisingly spacious, with plenty of treadmills, stationary bikes, weight machines, and accessories.
HopCity Tavern dishes up pub-inspired classics for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Be sure to sample some of the restaurant’s signature dishes, like the HUB IPA Mac ‘n Cheese or the HopCity Burger. Not in the mood for a sit-down meal? Stop by The Market, which has a great selection of snacks and sandwiches to-go.
HopCity Tavern has plenty of beer, wine, and spirits to help you relax after a long day. For a truly Portland experience, make sure to try a local brew (they have 7 local beers on tap) or a glass of wine (HopCity Tavern features 12 local PNW wines by the glass).
If you want to save on your tab, stop by during Social Hour from 4pm to 6pm, where you can snag some great food and drink specials.
Getting around Portland without a car is simple. The downtown area is extremely walkable, and if you wanted to venture further, there’s a MAX Light Rail station just a block away from the hotel. If you do decide to bring a car, expect to pay $47 per day for valet.
Fuel a long day of exploring Portland with some healthy eats from Kure Juice Bar (1-minute walk). In addition to organic juices (Liquid Sunshine, which mixes orange, apple, kale, and ginger is a standout), Kure also has more filling breakfast items like acai bowls, oatmeal, and smoothies. Another great restaurant just a hop, skip, and a jump away is The Picnic House (2-minute walk), a fun, casual spot serving up dishes inspired by picnic classics (like Grilled Cheese and Tomato Basil soup).
Barlow (3-minute walk) is one of the more unique bars in downtown Portland. With a 1920’s speakeasy theme and a killer cocktail menu, it’s a great choice for a classy night out on the town. If you’re looking for something a little more laid-back, try Deschutes Brewery Portland Public House (14-minute walk), a popular Oregon brewery where you can sample beers brewed in-house specifically for the Portland location.
