With 119 rooms to bed down in, expansive communal spaces, and a choice of three restaurants—including the all-day rooftop eatery with views across the city—The Hoxton, Portland, is the second American outpost for the Ennismore-created brand; following a theme for seeking style with its location in the hip city’s offbeat Old Town Chinatown neighbourhood.
Housed within a building that dates back to 1906, rooms are spread across Shoebox, Snug, Cosy, and Roomy categories, and—as is The Hoxton way—have been designed to make the most of the space without compromising on comfort. Rich walnut panelling is the backdrop for contemporary artworks, ceramics, and bookshelves all of which have been curated by local business owners, artists, residents, and artisans.
Referred to warmly as Hox Friends, these insights into Portland life feature alongside perks that devotees of The Hox have grown accustomed to, such as a mini fridge for you to stock at your whim with fairly-priced goodies from the reception shop, and a daily ‘emergency’ breakfast bag delivered straight to your door.
Serving as boltholes for travellers and local alike since 2006 when their first ‘open house’ hotel opened in Shoreditch, The Hoxton have established a reputation for vibrant public spaces and on-trend food offerings—Portland being no different with a large open lobby to relax, work, and play; a basement bar serving inventive cocktails focussed around rice- based spirits; all-day dining destination, La Neta, serving Mexican-influenced fare on the ground floor; and Tope, the rooftop taqueria boasting views across the city.
Throw in a stellar calendar of cultural and lifestyle events, a retail collection of products created in collaboration with local brands to showcase the best of the neighbourhood, and a Portland iteration for The Apartment—the hotel brand’s multi-functional events and meetings space—The Hoxton have arrived in Oregon with all the aplomb, style, and substance we’ve come to expect.
