A new year brings the promise of great things, and this year brings a brand new luxury, boutique hotel to the Eastside of downtown Portland. A buzz is growing about Hotel Eastlund leading a true urban resurgence in the Lloyd District. Located across from the Oregon Convention Center, the Forbes four-star hotel features some of the most dramatic dining in the Rose City.
The thriving Eastside of downtown Portland offers a bounty of shopping destinations, from Lloyd Center Mall to Pioneer Courthouse Square. Holiday shoppers will find large department stores, like Nordstrom and Macy’s, popular retail outlets, and local boutique shops, all in proximity to the Oregon Convention Center.
Demolition began this week at the former site of the Red Lion Hotel in Portland’s Lloyd District. The property, located across from the Oregon Convention Center, will reopen as the luxury boutique hotel Hotel Eastlund in May 2015. Hotel Eastlund will be the centerpiece of this fast-developing neighborhood, targeting business travelers, leisure guests and convention attendees.
