The Art & Technology of Comfort
Rising from the ashes of the 60’s Red Lion Hotel is the east side’s new entry into the Portland hip hotel scene—the Eastlund. Cut from the same pedigree as the downtown Modera Hotel, the Eastlund is a welcomed revision in the evolving convention center area. The fun starts at the front door. An expansive, bright lobby filled with eye-catching art welcomes visitors. Staff is tuned to deliver exceptional customer service and the vibe is genuine and unpretentious. Amenities include great food, local spirits, tech-savvy rooms and super-fast Wifi throughout the property. Art is front and center in the rooms and public spaces. Meeting and guest rooms are wired for productivity. Business and tourist travelers benefit from the attention to detail and a staff committed to getting it if it’s not already available. River and city views from the upper levels are spectacular, day and night. The efficient, comfort-forward rooms boast big flat-screens and colorful decor. The Eastlund is delightfully located within walking distance of a variety of transportation, entertainment, meeting and dining opportunities. Hop on the MAX from PDX and it's an easy stroll to your accommodations. With so many on-site services available, you might just find yourself pleasantly planted during your Portland stay.
