Facts

  • In 1984, Pioneer Square was dedicated on top of the former Portland Hotel site.
  • About 4,000,000 bricks were used in hotel's construction.
  • Today, much of the original stone foundation for the hotel remains under the walkways.
  • The building's iron scrollwork gate can be still seen as it was incorporated into the design of the Pioneer Square.
  • Doyle and Patterson proposed a 12-story Portland Hotel Addition that was never built in 1914.
  • In 1888, the McKim partnership was approached to once again work on the project but they declined; nevertheless, one of their early assistant architects, Whidden, accepted the offer.
  • The grand opening was on April 7th, 1890.
  • In 1983, the hotel construction stopped for 5 years after Villard's financial fortune crumbled.
