HI-LO HOTEL WILL KEEP PORTLAND WEIRD, YET LUXURIOUS

1 -min. read

High-Low has always been our personal go-to fashion M.O., but can this expensive-inexpensive mash-up work for a hotel? The Hi-Lo Hotel in Portland, Oregon is going to try.

Opening early next year in downtown Portland in the historic Oregon Pioneer Building, Hi-Lo promises a “new era of refined luxury for locals, young professionals and business travelers who value one-of-a-kind experiences.” As for the high-low combo, Hi-Lo will mix organic and modern, raw and refined, and elegant and effortless, along with Portland and luxury.

All that clever marketing-speak aside, the 120-room hotel will have super stylish guest rooms done in a very earthy style with reclaimed wood walls (from a local millwork) and concrete pillars (similar to 1 Hotels but perhaps not as rustic.) The lobby design too promises to be ultra-modern yet with natural touches—light woods, grey fabrics, and more concrete pillars.

The hotel’s restaurant and bar will also play on the High-Low theme. Lo Bar will serve hand-crafted cocktails while the Alto-Bajo restaurant will serve modern Mexican fare from Michelin-starred Moto alum Chef Chip Barnes and famous Oaxacan Chef Iliana de Vegas.

In the guest rooms, local bathroom amenities by Maak Lab will have a custom scent designed exclusively for Hi-Lo. Other perks include complimentary WiFi, mobile check-in, Netflix and other streaming apps, and for canine guests, treats from a local dog bakery. Hi-Lo will also be a part of Marriott International’s Autograph Collection, a first for Oregon.

As of today, online bookings weren’t yet open but we’ll peg this to our openings list for sometime around March.
