Construction on the long-anticipated headquarter hotel at the Oregon Convention Center (OCC) begins in July 2017, with a projected opening date of December 2019. The 600-room Hyatt Regency Portland is Hyatt’s first full-service hotel in Oregon and will offer planners a committable block of 500 rooms directly across the street from the OCC.

“The new hotel makes the Oregon Convention Center an attractive choice for larger groups. Its LEED certification contributes to the Lloyd District’s emerging identity as a pioneer of new strategies for urban sustainability,” said Scott Cruickshank, the general manager of Metro Visitor Venues, which manages the OCC.

The Hyatt Regency Portland is a short walk from shopping and dining in Portland’s Lloyd District and professional sporting events at the Rose Quarter. Downtown Portland and the Central Eastside are minutes away via MAX Light Rail, Portland Streetcar or Biketown bike share. Visitors can ride MAX directly from Portland International Airport to the hotel.
