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.

The upgraded suites now have two, 40-inch, flat-screen HDTVs; wet bar area with refrigerator; and coffeemaker and microwave oven. All two-room suite accommodations are comprised of a private guestroom and separate living area.

The revamp also focused on the hotel's sustainability efforts, with energy-efficient lighting, high-efficiency laundry appliances, new recycling and composting programs and commodes designed to reduce water consumption by 1.7 million gallons per year.

The hotel now has 24,000 square feet of remodeled meeting space and a rebranded restaurant, called Cascade, that offers a Northwest dining and retail market concept.

Embassy Suites by Hilton Portland-Washington Square sits at 9000 S.W. Washington Square Rd. in Tigard just off Highway 217.
