The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Portland

New bloom in the Rose City

Rising above the Rose City’s historic downtown district, the new Block 216 tower has transformed the city skyline. With thirty-five floors, the $600 million project is one of the city’s most luxurious hotels, and it began welcoming guests to The Ritz-Carlton, Portland in October 2023. Its sleek, glass exterior wows with reflections of the surrounding green hills and neighboring buildings, shining like a beacon of change. Since construction began four years ago, it has been a financial catalyst, attracting an additional $3 billion in development to Portland’s downtown.

Covering a full city block, the 35-story, 251-room hotel is the first Ritz-Carlton property in the Pacific Northwest. In addition to the hotel, on floors 21 through 35 The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Portland features 132 Residences in one-, two-, and three-bedroom formats, each with a private balcony. Footprints range from 1,100 to 4,000 square feet, including Penthouses on the 32nd through 35th floors.

Matthew Boyes from Cielo Home & Design offered, “We are honored to be part of the architectural triumph of what has been created by the PDX design firm GBD. They created a lux yet approachable structure that we enhanced with our signature use of color, textures, and eclectic furnishings. The Residences are the ultimate residential urban living experience in Oregon.”

The property abounds with first-class facilities and amenities for both guests and Owners. Let’s explore them in turn. First, for the Residences:

The Owners’ Lobby

Owners enter through a private portal into the welcoming Owners’ Lobby that reflects Portland’s timber industry heritage. Patterns, colors, and textures conjure the impression of the dappled light drifting through the forest canopy and the never-ending hues of the Willamette River. To gain access to the Residences and amenities, use the sleek, high-speed elevators.

The Exclusive Owners’ Lounge

The 8th floor Owners’ Lounge offers a number of appealing indoor and outdoor spaces. Enjoy conversations with neighbors and friends around one of multiple crackling fireplaces, savor wines stored in the temperature-controlled wine storage, cut strokes from your score by practicing in the indoor golf simulator, or host a private meeting in the Executive Boardroom.

Hidden Mountain Lake

Hidden Mountain Lake, a zero-edge infinity pool with panoramic views of the Cascade Range creates the effect of a secret lake among the mountains. Towering window walls flood the dazzling pool and jacuzzi with abundant natural light while offering unparalleled views of Mount Hood and the city below. From the lounge chairs at water’s edge, gaze over the city skyline while relaxing with a good book or enjoying the company of friends.

Forest Hall

The building’s grand lobby evokes the lush landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. Dappled light drifts through towering arboreal panels. Mirroring the faceted steps of the mossy basalt falls near Mt. Hood, a spectacular staircase leads guests into a canopy of cascading crystals and verdant green foliage. A variety of inviting seating and entertainment spaces tucked beneath invite relaxation.

Meadowrue, The Hotel Lobby Bar

Inspired by primordial forests, a mix of earthy design elements such as mossy green plants and twinkling lights, bring the beauty of the great outdoors inside. The menu draws from the evolved Portland food culture, serving an exclusive Coava coffee blend with breakfast in the mornings and imaginative cocktails paired with small plates crafted from locally sourced ingredients in the evenings.
