The venue for our meeting: Embassy Suites Hotel, downtown Portland
The Embassy Suites Hotel is located in the heart of downtown Portland, Oregon. This historic all suite hotel was built in 1912, completely refurbished in 2014 and features vintage décor with a state-of-the-art meeting facility. Each allergy friendly suite includes a separate living area, private bedroom, free wifi, small refrigerator and microwave. A complementary full cook to order breakfast and complementary evening reception serving regional wines, local beers and spirits are added benefits. From the hotel, it is only a 3-5 minute walk to over 30+ restaurants, including Portland’s famous foodcarts, Powell’s bookstore, the Pearl district, shops and entertainment. This is a family friendly venue, featuring an indoor swimming pool, fully equipped fitness center and game room. This boutique-style hotel is conveniently located adjacent to public transportation, including the Max Light Rail System with direct connections to OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Technology), the Children’s Museum, the Oregon Zoo, Portland International Airport, and many other popular attractions. I invite you to discover the local culture of Portland, from the street food to Waterfront Park, the artisan handicrafts, or one of the 279 parks scattered throughout the city. Portland is a city of fascinating history, beautiful nature, interesting people, and provides an excellent venue for the SCCR 2016 meetings.
