The Nines Hotel is a fashion-forward, modern luxury hotel in the heart of downtown Portland. It opened in October, 2008, as part of Starwood Hotels' The Luxury Collection. The Nines' creative décor and stylish dining make it Portland's design hotel. Travel + Leisure magazine included the Nines in its Top 500 Hotels in 2011.

The Nines is the "in" place to stay in Portland for both leisure and business travelers. Its guest clientele ranges from singles to families to celebrities (movie and television stars filming in Portland) to athletes (out-of-town pros in Portland to play against the MLS Portland Timbers soccer team and Portland Trailblazers NBA basketball team).

In keeping with Portland's progressive attitude, the Nines Hotel is LEED Certified for its green design and low environmental impact. The hotel's dog-friendly policy is equally forward-thinking. (Canines are welcome, for a relatively low supplement.)

Trend-conscious luxury travelers are attracted to the Nines Hotel for its 419-piece commissioned art collection, its up-to-the-moment dining, and its late-night club scene in Departure, the Nines' indoor-outdoor penthouse lounge and restaurant.
