The Story Of The Porter Hotel

Portland is a city of evolution, from its 19th-century beginnings as a bustling timber seaport to its present-day incarnation as a mecca of technology and the arts. Renowned for its independence, natural beauty and pioneer sensibilities, our city remains liberal, quirky, creative and completely devoid of artifice. The Porter Portland echoes these sensibilities, with anticipatory service in an atmosphere that is as unpretentious as it is elegant.


The Porter’s neighborhood, in the heart of central downtown Portland, began in the 19th century as a neighborhood of Jewish and Italian immigrants. Adjacent to the Willamette River, this area was filled with delicatessens, mercantiles, synagogues, residences and entertainment at the Portland Civic Auditorium. The Porter’s market and dining offerings echo those vibrant ethnic food purveyors of long ago.  

The neighborhood is the epicenter of performing arts, with the Keller Auditorium home to the Oregon Ballet, Portland Opera, Broadway in Portland and scores of renowned performances. The Keller is all just a two minute walk of The Porter. Celebrated chefs practice at restaurants in and within a 5 to 10 minute walk of The Porter Hotel and 2 ½ blocks from the Willamette River and Tom McCall Waterfront Park. 


Enveloped by a sense of purpose and comfort, The Porter is defined by its collection of distinct social spaces and unique design—a haven in the midst of central downtown Portland.  Guests will experience the Pacific Northwest, even if their stay is just 24 hours. 
The Porter is embracing the spirit of adventure present in Portland and the Pacific Northwest by connecting guests with design elements reflecting the natural surroundings. The familiarity of objects and space are presented in a new manner.  The hotel creates moments and journeys; drama and emotion are intertwined with story, giving all spaces life and character.
