Lloyd District hotel to close for $10M renovation

The Red Lion Hotel near the Oregon Convention Center will close September 2nd and reopen next year as Hotel Eastlund.

When it reopens in May, the hotel will have two new restaurants run by Portland chef David Machado, who operated Nel Centro at the Hotel Modera. That hotel went through a similar repositioning by the same partnership.

On the top floor of the six-story building, Machado will run a full-service restaurant with a rooftop deck and three fire pits. On the street level and spilling into the hotel lobby, he'll open a bakery-cafe and wine bar.

The hotel will also include two boardrooms, two private dining rooms and a ballroom. Its room count will fall from 173 before the renovation to 168 after.
