Getting Around Downtown Portland

Ditch the car and get the full experience

Portland is more than a city of tourist sites—there are countless things you will come across if you just start walking. If you’re sticking around downtown, you can get anywhere on foot. If you want to see one of our fantastic Eastside neighborhoods, you can get there by train, bus, or bike.

Public Transit Options

Portland has amazing public transportation, especially downtown. If you’re coming from the airport, skip the car and hop on a MAX train. It’s only $2.50 and drops you off at about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Find the train outside of baggage claim, then exit at Pioneer Square. The Hotel is 7 short blocks away towards the Fountain District. Heads up—its about a 45 minute ride and takes you through many neighborhoods, so you get a little sneak preview of the city right away.
