Two firms combine for Embassy Suites by Hilton in Portland

HFS Concepts and LRS Architects renovated Embassy Suites by Hilton Portland-Washington Square.

Embassy Suites by Hilton Portland-Washington Square in Portland, Ore., part of Hilton Worldwide’s brand of all-suite hotels, completed a renovation under the management of Spire Hospitality. The revamp of the suburban Portland hotel upgraded the hotel's atrium, community and meeting spaces, indoor pool and whirlpool, and modernized its 356 two-room suites.

The property used HFS Concepts for the E8 portfolio as the designer/architect, but also engaged a local architectural firm, LRS Architects, for some additional work. The contractor was FDR Construction.

The new look incorporates modernized design.
