UPA has secured a discounted room rate of US$169 single/double, plus applicable taxes for a limited number of hotel rooms at the Hilton Portland and Executive Tower. Reservations will be taken on a first come, first serve basis. The contracted rate will be available until the UPA block is full or until 5 pm CST on May 12, 2009, whichever occurs first. Make your reservation early to take advantage of the discounted contract rate. For reservations, call 1-800-HILTONS (445-8667).
The Hilton Portland & Executive Tower hotel is located in the heart of Portland, Oregon’s city center and only a block away from the MAX Light Rail system providing access to many of Portland’s premier attractions. MAX also provides transportation to and from the Portland International Airport in just 30 minutes as well as to surrounding cities.
Once you arrive, the Hilton Portland & Executive Tower hotel hopes that you will notice its efforts as a leader in sustainability, but if you don’t, that is ok because “green” doesn’t mean a different guest experience, just a friendlier experience. As of 2007, the hotel is proud to be the largest Green Seal Certified hotel on the West Coast. To earn this prestigious certification, the hotel must adhere to rigorous environmental leadership standards and participate in sustainability programs such as recycling, waste minimization, reduced energy use and green purchasing.
