(CHICAGO, IL; September 9, 2021) — Oxford Capital Group, LLC announces the re-opening of The Porter Hotel Portland (218 SW Jefferson Street). Part of the Curio Collection by Hilton, The Porter is a recently developed 16-story, 296-room high design, full service, luxury lifestyle hotel located at the corner of 2nd Ave. and Columbia St. in downtown Portland’s Fountain District.

“Since opening over Labor Day weekend we have welcomed guests to enjoy our luxurious accommodations and convenient amenities, including our modern delicatessen, The Portland Exchange, and our stellar location central to downtown Portland and all it has to offer,” said Keith Cestare, General Manager of The Porter. “I am eager to serve the community of downtown Portland as an employer, colleague, and host.” Guests and locals alike will benefit from The Porter’s four unique food and beverage outlets. The Portland Exchange Grocer & Goods reopened with the property; Xport Bar & Lounge, an expansive rooftop venue which features spacious decks with unparalleled views of the mountains, opens next as the office and financial district re-gain momentum this fall. Also slated for future re-openings are Chiosco Pizza Window and Terrane Italian Kitchen + Bar, offering classic Italian flavors crafted with seasonal and locally-sourced ingredients. Banquets and group meetings will resume as restrictions are eased. Additional amenities include more than 12,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor event space, a fitness center, sauna and steam room, indoor pool and whirlpool. The property is within walking distance to the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, Keller Auditorium as well as Portland Art Museum. Other popular attractions like the Oregon Convention Center, Moda Center, Portland Art Museum, and Portland Zoo are just a short drive away.

The Porter Hotel Portland benefits from Oxford’s extensive national luxury lifestyle hotel management experience. This includes robust food and beverage offerings; sophisticated revenue management, social media, direct sales, e-commerce, and marketing strategies; its proven ability to run highly profitable rooms and meeting and event venues; highly effective recruiting, training and retention methods; and creative cost control initiatives.

“We are confident that Oxford’s comprehensive management approach will allow this beautiful new property to achieve its full potential,” says John W. Rutledge, Founder, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer of Oxford Hotels & Resorts, LLC and its parent company, Chicago-based Oxford Capital Group, LLC.

“We are extremely excited for the Porter Portland to welcome guests to one of the city’s premier hotels, with unmatched amenities in the heart of downtown,” says George Jordan, President of Oxford Hotels & Resorts, LLC. “As a Curio Collection Hotel by Hilton, guests are also rewarded through participation in HHonors, Hilton’s best in class guest loyalty program.”
