PORTLAND, Ore., - Officials of PM Hotel Group, a leading, national hotel management company, and The Buccini/Pollin Group, a privately-held, full-service real estate acquisition, development and management company (BPG), today completed the topping off of the 153-room Canopy by Hilton Portland Pearl District.

"The Portland Pearl District marks our second hotel flying the Canopy by Hilton flag, a brand designed to appeal to upscale business and leisure travelers who seek experiential stays in great neighborhoods with access to local food, entertainment and shopping," said Dave Pollin, BPG co-founder. "We believe the hotel's focus on comfort and design, additional included value and 'positively yours' service culture will resonate with Portland visitors and locals alike."
Nestled in the Pearl District on Portland's Gallery Row, the hotel is located at 425 NW 9th Avenue, a short distance from the Willamette River and Pioneer Courthouse Square. The Pearl District surrounding the hotel is comprised of repurposed, historic warehouses and cobblestone streets that have been transformed into a vibrant leisure destination with eclectic retail, dining and entertainment offerings.

Guests can start the day with a signature Break Fast bag delivered to the room or head down to Canopy Central for a complimentary, artisanal breakfast. In addition to the numerous local dining options, guests will be able to grab a bite throughout the day at the Canopy Central bistro, which will highlight local ingredients such as wild salmon, razor clams, hazelnuts, locally grown blueberries and fiddleheads. The hotel lounge will stock world-class Willamette Valley wines and locally crafted beers and mix signature cocktails from Portland's renowned Distillery Row, all of which are highlighted at a tasting each evening at the communal tables in Canopy Central.
