ALISO VIEJO, Calif. — October 10, 2022 —Pacifica Hotels, the largest owner and operator of boutique hotels along the Pacific Coast, is thrilled to announce the $32.9 million purchase of the Kimpton Hotel Vintage Portland. The iconic Portland hotel will join the company’s impressive portfolio of 40 plus properties currently located in California and Hawaii.
“The Portland hospitality market has a long history of success and is a market we have been looking to have a presence in for many years,” shared Chris Marquis, Executive Vice President of Pacifica Hotels. “We are thrilled to have our first be Hotel Vintage with its heralded history as an iconic hotel in the Portland market. We believe the strong, historical dynamics of the Portland hospitality market pair well with our expertise in design-forward, experiential hotels. We will continue to look to grow our footprint throughout the Pacific Northwest.”
The hotel was built in the late 1800s and underwent a multimillion makeover in 2015 and 2018 that overhauled the lobby, rooms and amenities. Today, each floor of the hotel is dedicated to a different Willamette Valley American Viticultural Area, and each room is named after a local winery. Kimpton Hotel Vintage Portland has 117 hotel rooms, 8,000 sq. ft. of event space, a street-level restaurant and bar called Il Solito and Bacchus Bar, a private wine cellar, and a game lounge. The hotel’s lobby doubles as a tasting room, and the graffiti art murals have been named among the best in the nation.
“As the Portland hospitality market continues to regain strength, we are working diligently to reopen Il Solito, which we believe will be a top restaurant destination in downtown Portland upon its reopening. We also have preliminary plans to add additional food and beverage outlets within the hotel, which we are very excited about,” shared Matt Marquis, CEO of Pacifica Hotels.
Kimpton Hotel Vintage Portland is located at 422 S.W. Broadway, on the corner of S.W. Broadway and S.W. Washington Street. The hotel is within walking distance of many of the city’s main attractions and most popular eateries.
