Headquarters Hotel plan heads to Portland City Council

The Portland City Council will consider partnering with Metro on its Headquarters Hotel project.

The council will consider a resolution authorizing Mayor Charlie Hales to sign an agreement with Metro to construct of a 600-room hotel adjacent to the Oregon Convention Center, which Metro owns and operates.

The council will also consider amending an existing Intergovernmental Agreement with Metro and Multnomah County Commission to help finance the project. One proposed change would dedicate the county lodging tax from the hotel to paying back a Metro-issued bond for the project.
