The Hyatt Centric Portland has topped off in downtown Portland, Oregon. The 11,919-m2 (128,299-sf), full-service lifestyle hotel offers guests a connection to the city’s core.

Sera Architects is the design team working on the project alongside developer and design-builder Mortenson.

The 15-story boutique lifestyle hotel will offer 220 guest rooms, approximately 279 m2 (3000 sf) of meeting space, and a destination restaurant and bar. The lobby will be reflective of Portland with multimedia art displays.

According to Sera Architects’ website, the hotel is focused on place-based design highlighting Portland’s deep craftsman history and its interaction with the landscape. The exterior embraces this concept by creating a woven series of moves between the vertical and horizontal components of the building, inspired by the historic basket weaving techniques of the Tanner Springs neighborhood. This weaving, combined with the distinct geomorphic façade—which mimics the basalt colonnades of the surrounding area—emulates an urban forest, playing with the changing daylight to create a unique experience throughout the day.

“Our focus with the Hyatt Centric brand is to serve up share-worthy experiences in popular destinations around the world,” said Patrick McCudden, senior vice-president of capital strategy, Hyatt. “Portland is an exciting and vibrant city and we are excited to help visitors discover its hidden treasures.”

The hotel is slated to open in January 2020.

  1. Hi, I can understand how you could make the mistake since Portland is the tail that wags the dog but Oregon’s capital city is in fact Salem.

    1. ✔️… thought the same thing; I have only lived here a couple of years, but I know that Portland is NOT Oregon’s Capital city. In early pioneer days; it was Oregon City; then Salem. Though Portland is still Oregon’s largest city, and home of Portland Trailblazers, Portland Timbers & future MLB team.

  2. Thanks, Sebastian and Don, for highlighting this error. The news item has been revised accordingly.
