After spending a night at the Hyatt Centric Downtown Portland (full review here), I moved to join all of my colleagues for the company’s annual conference and stayed at the Hyatt Regency Portland at the Oregon Convention Center. The hotel is directly across from the convention center. You’ll find no closer accommodation if you’re attending a conference there.
Anthony’s Take: The hotel is perfectly located for convention-goers. It has everything you need for a few days stay including a restaurant and bar, a market, fitness center, and comfortable rooms. I wish this hotel had a Regency Club and a pool.
My company booked me a Standard | King Bed room on a negotiated conference rate (well below Standard Rates). The hotel is a Category 3 property and room redemptions range from 9,000 to 15,000 per night when redeeming World of Hyatt points for a standard room.
Transportation to/from the Hotel
I took an UberX from the Hyatt Centric Downtown Portland to this hotel. The approximately 1.7-mile ride took 8 minutes and cost around $9. When I left the hotel, I went to Portland International Airport (PDX), which cost around $76 for an Uber Premier.
The hotel is located directly across from the Oregon Convention Center. I was also happy to find a Starbucks two blocks away. If not attending a convention, there are hotels that are more convenient for siteseeing.
I arrived at the hotel around 3:00 PM. The agent quickly gave me my keys and explained none of the benefits. I wasn’t asked if I needed a late checkout. I inquired about breakfast and was told that Globalist members receive complimentary breakfast in the restaurant located in the lobby.
The lobby is huge and has a spacious bar in the middle.
There is lots of seating spread throughout the elegant lobby.
TVs were also spread throughout the lobby.
A shuffleboard table was found just past the bar.
A mural lined one wall of the lobby.
The elevators were speedy and all four were working during my stay.
My room was on the top floor and the elevator lobby was in good shape.
The hallways were also in good repair.
Standard | King Bed (1425)
There are 600 rooms including 16 suites at the hotel.
There was a huge, open closet on the right side of the room upon entering.
A closet held an iron and ironing board.
On the other side was a refrigerator, safe, Keurig, and extra blanket.
The refrigerator had a sticker on it that read it was not intended for perishable items.
The bathroom was to the left. It contained a shower, a vanity with a single sink, and a separate room for the toilet.
A bar of Pharmacopia-brand soap was on the vanity.
I liked that the toilet had its own room.
The shower was spacious with good water pressure and temperature.
Wall-mounted Pharmacopia Shampoo, Conditioner, and Body Wash were in the shower.
The bedroom was just past the bathroom. It held a king-sized bed, a couch, a desk and chair, a TV, and two nightstands.
The TV was mounted across from the bed.
A desk and chair were near the window.
Public Areas & Amenities
The hotel has a fitness center (pictured above), the lobby-level restaurant and bar, a market, and the seating already noted.
Market offered beverages, a good selection of food, and some souvenirs.
Globalists are provided complimentary breakfast in the restaurant. I did not have a chance to try it, but a full buffet is offered.
The Hyatt Regency Portland at the Oregon Convention Center was the perfect spot for attending a conference across the street at the convention center. The hotel isn’t as huge as some other Hyatt Regency locations, but has everything you’ll need for either a business or leisure trip.
