We are fortunate to be in a GREEN city! Transportation from the Portland Airport to just across the street from the hotel is via the MAX Light Rail. It is just $2.50 for the ride (only $1.00 if you are 65+) and takes about 20 minutes. You would take the RED LINE and get off at the LLOYD CENTER/ 11th AVE stop. The hotel is across the street!

Portland has both the MAX Light Rail and the Portland Streetcar to get you easily to the most popular areas.

Check it out at: Trimet.org for schedules, routing and maps and a video on “how to use it”. If you are flying into Portland….cars are definitely optional.


Day self-parking at DoubleTree by Hilton is $5.00/day; they do have limited parking!  Discounted self-parking rate for overnight guests is $10.00/day.

DoubleTree by Hilton address:1000 NE Multnomah, Portland, OR…near Lloyd Center.


COFFEE/TEAS will be provided at breaks; snacks and meals are on your own. We will have a sheet of local restaurants to walk to for lunch, or you can eat at the hotel. The concierge is very helpful….just in the lobby.


As always, be mindful of those with allergies to fragrances. We suggest that you wear layers to adjust to the temperature in the conference rooms.


We look forward to seeing you!
