The Porter Portland, Curio Collection by Hilton Luxury Evolved Portland’s story is one of evolution, from its beginnings in the mid-1800s as a bustling timber seaport filled with tall ships, lumber barons and porters, to a powerhouse of technology and mecca of culinary arts and creativity it has become today. Regional wines, distilleries and restaurants are now as internationally renowned as Oregon’s natural splendor. Portland has always been recognized for its ardent independence, natural beauty and pioneer sensibilities. Even how Portland was named is rather unconventional. A toss of a copper penny by Asa Lovejoy from Boston, MA and Francis Pettygrove of Portland, ME in 1845 decided the name of Portland on the third flip of a two out of three toss of the coin. Nearly 170 years later, this deep thinking city remains liberated, beautiful, quirky, creative and always true to itself. The Porter Hotel resonates these very Portland sensibilities via its luxurious copper toned, sepia rich crafted beauty. Portland is recognized as the center of the hand wrought and finely crafted. Every facet of the hotel is thoughtful and beautiful without being forced, pretentious or pointless. It is just right in every detail. Service that Takes You There It is legend to ask a true Portlander where something is located and they will walk you there to make sure you find your destination. This endearing spirit of helpfulness is within each stay curated by everyone at The Porter Hotel. A porter by definition sees that your every need is met and The Porter’s delivery of service elevates it to an art form. Every detail from the ordinary to the complex matter because every guest matters.
The Porter’s Neighborhood:The Fountain DistrictThe neighborhood where The Porter is located, now called the Fountain District, began in the 19th century as a neighborhood of Jewish and Italian immigrants. This neighborhood adjacent to the Willamette River was filled with delicatessens, mercantiles, synagogues, residences and entertainment with the Portland Civic Auditorium. The Porter’s Portland Exchange market, Neapolitan wood fired pizza and restaurant offerings echo those vibrant ethnic food purveyors of long ago. Nationally Celebrated: Proclaimed the “Most Important Urban Spaces Since the Renaissance” As was the case with many cities, the neighborhood went into steep decline by the 1950s. To counter urban decline, the neighborhood began two decades of urban renewal. The highlight of this effort culminated in a public space designed by internationally renowned urban architect Lawrence Halprin, and comprised of interconnected walkways, plazas, and system of fountains. The fountains called The Sequence, are designed to emulate the Cascade Mountain Range watershed beginning with the Source and culminating at the Ira Keller Fountain. Ada Louise Huxtable, the famed New York Times architecture critic, wrote in 1970 that The Sequence was “one of the most important urban spaces since the Renaissance.” One of Lawrence Halprin’s last works was the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial in Washington, D.C. With such accolades, it is fitting that more than 50 years after The Sequence was completed in Portland, The Porter’s neighborhood is located is named the Fountain District in honor of its most distinct feature. World Class Performing Arts Center, Dining and A River Runs Through It: The Fountain District 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.
