Sheraton Portland Airport Hotel, the flagship property at Portland International Airport, has wrapped a yearlong, multi-phase renovation. 

Among the property's additions is the introduction of the "Meetings in a Minute" concept. This offering includes meeting rooms that can accommodate up to four people, available for guests and non-hotel guests alike. The revamped rooms utilize smart technology and include computers and printers.

The $7.5 million-dollar renovation also has seen the property upgrade 15 of its conference and banquet rooms, encompassing 22,500 square feet of flexible meeting space and a large foyer space outside of each ballroom. The renovation has also transformed the lobby into an open floor where visitors can eat, work, and connect, designed around the concept of "fractured geometry."

"The goal of the renovation was to drastically transform the lobby, guest rooms, and meeting areas of the hotel, while remaining true to Sheraton's classic style that our global travelers know and trust," said Mike Daley, general manager of the hotel. 

The hotel has also expanded its dining options with the opening of Rose & Compass, focusing on Northwest-inspired cuisine with a selection of regional products from local farms, ranches, distilleries, breweries, and vineyards. The new NorthStar Lounge will be available for private events.

The hotel opened in 1974 as the first property at the Portland International Airport. The pet-friendly hotel includes 215 guest rooms, including five newly renovated suites. The Club Level rooms include cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and breakfast. 

There is a 24-hour fitness center, complete with indoor swimming and hot tub, and 24-hour complimentary airport transportation.
