Our Grand Opening Gala!
Portland, OR – June 10, 2015 – Hotel Eastlund’s Grand Opening Gala was a great success, featuring food by Altabira City Tavern, local libations and live entertainment. Before the Gala, hotel owner Alan Battersby, general manager Desmond Mollendor and chef David Machado snipped the ribbon on the newest and finest luxury boutique hotel on the Eastside of downtown Portland.
Hundreds of local and regional media representatives and Hotel Eastlund’s extended family and friends gathered in the Cosmopolitan Ballroom and on Altabira’s rooftop terrace to celebrate and catch a first glimpse of the four-star hotel. With sunny blue skies and the green glass towers of the Oregon Convention Center as a backdrop, guests were treated to musical performances by British vocalist Andy Abraham and several other acts.

The grand ballroom, two executive boardrooms and two private dining rooms on the top floor all overlook downtown Portland. In addition, the hotel’s services and amenities include world-class dining at the rooftop restaurant and bar, as well as a casual daytime café and evening wine bar on the lobby level.
