Portland Hotels

Since the establishment of the area's first licensed hotel in 1681, Portland has had a dramatic, grand and boisterous hotel tradition.

As Portland grew with greater numbers of people moving through the city or calling it home, the hotel business expanded to fit the increasing demand.
