An old landmark in Portland Oregon is set to become the next luxury hotel. The
that the Meier & Frank building once a large department store, will now be Oregon's first
Luxury Collection hotel, a high-end brand owned by
that includes The
in Scottsdale. The hotel's eighth-floor lobby will still be home to the Georgian Room, a dining room
which dates back to the 1920s. The lower floors of the building will be a newly renovated Macy's store. The plan is to
keep the Macy's open while the upper floors go through a major renovation. The 330-room hotel is expected to open in 2008.
