The Ritz-Carlton, Portland

Classic luxury with Pacific Northwest panache

As the brand’s first Pacific Northwest outpost, The Ritz-Carlton, Portland certainly makes a statement. With a city-center location, mindful eco-friendly features and a striking gem-shaped glass dome topping the 35-story skyscraper, the luxury hotel makes a glamorous addition to the Oregon metropolis’ skyline.

Inspired by the rugged beauty of the region, the Portland property’s HKS Hospitality Interiors-designed spaces bring the outdoors inside in spectacular fashion. An enchanting forest-themed lobby, a serene indoor pool influenced by an alpine lake and rooms designed to mimic Oregon’s misty mountain rivers are just a few of the thoughtful ways the luxury hotel brand has embraced its new home.

Signature dining venue Bellpine showcases the area’s bounty with elevated fare sourced from the Willamette Valley to the Pacific Ocean and a locally stirred coffee lounge serves up a bespoke blend in an homage to Portland’s rich coffee culture. But, if for some reason all of the interior touches aren’t enough to entice you to stay, the Mount Hood views should do the trick.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • As an homage to Portland’s rich arts culture, The Ritz-Carlton, Portland boasts a curated art collection from Pacific Northwest creatives, including local artists like David Rice, Rachel Austin and Kavin Buck. The central theme of the works is the connection between people and the land, resulting in an eclectic mix of materials and organic patterns that are truly mesmerizing to peruse.
  • Located on the luxury hotel’s 19th floor, The Ritz-Carlton Spa design was persuaded by the curved petals of a Portland rose to create a nature-themed hideaway for indulging in ESPA treatments with mountain views.
  • No detail was overlooked in the design of The Ritz-Carlton, Portland, where even the room scent was carefully curated. In partnership with Pacific Northwest-based Antica Farmacista, the hotel created “Rose City,” an exclusive scent designed to call to mind crisp alpine air, earthy forests and, naturally, wild roses.
  • Perched on the hotel’s 20th floor, signature dining venue Bellpine showcases the best of the Pacific Northwest. Locally caught fish, meat sourced from regional ranches and even Oregonian wines and spirits grace the menu, the brainchild of acclaimed executive chef Pedro Almeida and Portland-born chef Lauro Romero.
  • Enjoy a quiet dip in the property’s 19th-floor infinity pool. With its marble surrounds, carefully placed greenery and panoramic vistas of the Cascade Mountains, the serene space resembles a hidden mountain lake.

The Look

  • The Pacific Northwest’s gorgeous natural surroundings served as inspiration for nearly every inch of the Portland hotel. Even the building’s white base was designed to mimic the region’s distinct column-shaped basalt formations, accompanied by cascading stormwater planters that are activated by rainfall.
  • The stunning lobby, appropriately dubbed Forest Hall, was designed to resemble the area signature flora. The space is lit by natural light through towering, tree-inspired panels and adorned with natural materials such as copper-bound bundles of logs and historical nods like maps depicting Lewis and Clark’s journey to the Pacific Ocean.
  • Tucked away in the back of the lobby is Meadowrue, an intimate lounge adorned with hanging greenery and twinkling lights that create an enchanting hideaway for a pre-dinner cocktail.
  • Gray- and blue-toned guest rooms call to mind the region’s mist-covered mountains and rivers, a motif further cemented by the abstract cloud-like artwork hanging above the beds. Copper accents and geometric gem-shaped fixtures are nods to Oregon’s mining past.
