This well-known landmark is a favorite for local events.
Pioneer Square, also known as Portland's living room, is the heart of downtown. Just a few blocks away sits this local institution, home to expensive weddings, election night parties and charity galas. The pleasant atrium lobby is usually crowded with an even blend of conventioneers, tourists and businesspeople, not to mention the locals who are attending one event or another. The main hotel offers 782 rooms and suites with the standard amenities, as well as state-of-the-art fire-life safety system electronic key locks. The Executive Tower, which was built in 2002, offers 327 upscale, boutique-style rooms, as well as a restaurant, retail space and meeting rooms. This complex is ideally located for culture seekers; the performing arts center and museum are within blocks. Shopping and light rail to the rest of the city are equally convenient.
