PM Hotel Group and The Buccini/Pollin Group Celebrate Topping Off for Canopy by Hilton Portland Pearl District, Oregon

PORTLAND, OR. August 3, 2017 — 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. To commemorate the occasion, the hotel hosted a unique mosaic tile signing ceremony.

“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 are invited to explore the area using one of the hotel’s complimentary rental bicycles or jump aboard a nearby Portland Streetcar.

Each “Just-Right” guest room will feature free Wi-Fi, 55-inch television, refrigerated drawer, Nespresso® machine, tea kettle, plush bathrobes and the signature Canopy Bed with gel memory foam and Serta Cool Balance® technology. 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.

Hotel amenities include 2,807 square feet of flexible meeting space located around a two-story “winter garden” leading to the main level, Canopy Retreat quiet area within Canopy Central, Business Zone work area, a rooftop fitness center and numerous eco-friendly features like filtered water stations and refillable bottles on each guest floor, as well as a “green” roof.

Mobile Technology: Relentless Innovation

Technology has become a crucial component in attracting and retaining hotel guests, and the need to enhance a guest’s technology experience is driving a relentless pace of innovation. To meet and exceed guest expectations, 54% of hotels will spend more on technology in 2018, and mobile solutions in particular will top the list of capital investments. Many hotels are integrating mobile booking, mobile keys, mobile payments and mobile check-in into their operations. Other hotels are emphasizing the in-room experience, boosting bandwidth and upgrading flat screen TVs to more easily interface with guest mobile devices. And though not yet mainstream, there are many exciting technology developments on the near horizon. The Internet of Things (loT) is taking form in some places, and can be found in guest room control systems, voice activation systems, and in wearable sensors that can be used for access and payment options. Virtual reality headsets are available at some hotels so guests can enjoy virtual trips to exotic locations or if off-property, preview conference facilities and guest rooms. How long will it be before a hotel employs a fleet of robots for room service, or utilizes a hologram as a concierge, or installs gesture-controlled walls that feature interactive digital displays? Some hotels are already using augmented reality for translation services, or interactive wall maps, or even virtual décor. This pace of innovation is challenging property owners and brands to stay on top of the latest technology trends while still addressing current projects. The January Hotel Business Review will explore what some hotels are doing to maximize their opportunities in the mobile technology space.
