If luxury accommodation in a historic setting is something you look for when booking hotel reservations, it’s hard to do much better in downtown Portland, Oregon than the Nines Hotel. The award-winning property is located in the former Meier & Frank building at the heart of the city’s Pioneer Square.
The Meier & Frank building was once one of the largest retail outlets in the western half of the country. Its significance to the Portland area is one of the reasons it is now on the National Register of Historic Places. The elegance of the building has been painstakingly restored to provide a hotel experience that is truly unique.
The public spaces of the Nines Hotel feature a seven-story atrium with incredible lighting, a grand lobby with hardwood floors and gold foil walls, and corridors with distinct chandeliers at each rotunda. The public spaces have been specifically designed to reflect both the elegance and opulence of the former retail center.
