Portland will be home to the first Ritz-Carlton in the Pacific Northwest. Developer BPM Real Estate Group is bringing the brand to the city, with an anticipated opening in early 2023. Plans call for a 35-story tower with 251 hotel rooms and 138 residential units, including eight penthouses.

The mixed-use tower will also feature high-end office space and retail space and a ground-level food hall. The site is a few blocks from Pioneer Courthouse Square and Pioneer Place. It’s also within walking distance of the central business district and Pearl District.

Once open, The Ritz-Carlton, Portland will feature exclusive entrances for hotel guests and residence owners, along with high-end amenities, including a fitness center, full-service spa and swimming pool on the 19th floor, and multiple food and beverage venues. It is also slated to have more than 13,000 square feet of meeting and event space. 

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
