Virtual Event


Survival in these times is highly dependent on a hotel's ability to quickly adapt and pivot their business to meet the current needs of travelers and the surrounding community. Join us for Optimization Part 2 – a FREE virtual event – as we bring together top players in the industry to discuss alternative uses when occupancy is down, ways to boost F&B revenue, how to help your staff adjust to new challenges and more, in a series of panels focused on how you can regain profitability during this crisis.

One level of meeting space will be included, featuring 1,220 square feet of glass-enclosed AC Media Salons for small group gatherings.

Other amenities will include a 24-hour fitness center and off-site valet parking.

Sera is working with McWhinney, Sage Hospitality, Mortenson Development and Mortenson Construction on the project at the corner of SW Third Avenue and Taylor Street.

The AC Hotel Portland will target LEED Silver certification.

AC Hotels by Marriott currently has more than 80 hotels in Spain, Italy, Portugal, Denmark, Turkey, France and the US.
