A Seamless, Social Meeting Experience in Eugene

By Obie Hospitality

Eugene’s 5th Street Public Market in Oregon is a favorite destination for locals and visitors alike with dozens of restaurants and eateries, tasting rooms, boutique shops, and weekly events all wrapped in beautiful landscaping and festive seasonal decor. And a bonus: It is anchored by two beautiful boutique hotels, both offering a plethora of flexible meeting space to accommodate groups of five to 100.  

But, while this destination is an experience on its own, what makes it special is that it provides a unique, low-lift opportunity for meeting planners. The location is built-in with an authentic array of amenities for meeting attendees to explore and discover on a whim, as well as memorable programmed opportunities to round out your ideal group itinerary. You can plan as much or as little as you like, and rest easy knowing your group will have an enchanting time.

The Gordon Hotel

The newest addition to the 5th Street Public Market is The Gordon Hotel, which opened its doors in 2021 as part of the market’s award-winning expansion. The 80-room, art-centric property offers a vibrant, social atmosphere with perks like local beer or wine at check-in, two restaurants and a secret speakeasy on-site, and an “art bar” for empowering guests’ own creations. The property features 3,700 square feet of flexible meeting space, including a spacious ballroom for up to 100 guests with an integrated outdoor terrace overlooking the bustling 5th Street Public Market Alley, break-out rooms (like the Pacific Northwest-inspired Pendleton Room), a boardroom, and full-service catering complete with menu planning and bar/beverage services.

Inn at the 5th 

The Market’s Inn at the 5th offers elegant accommodations in its 69 guest rooms, where a selection of locally themed rooms gives additional references to local experiences at the hotel. Look for complimentary beer and wine at check-in, cruiser bikes for exploring, and relaxing rooms with custom mattresses and Italian linens. The property’s Maple Room has 1,400 square feet that can be set to accommodate events for up to 65, and there is a smaller space for up to six to meet privatelyboth with local catering available.

Both properties include high-speed internet access, business centers, complimentary airport pick up and drop off, shuttle services around town, on-site audiovisual, and unique group outings with personalized recommendations from knowledgeable staff. Both hotel teams are committed to engaging with local partners to build out dynamic itineraries for groupshelping outsiders look like in-the-know pros and ensuring objectives are met.
