It's funny, as I took those photos I was thinking the exact opposite: that I'm glad the Design Commission insisted on the white brick. That said, I agree with you that it is turning out a lot better than the renderings suggested.

To my eye it's a rare example of the finished product turning out exactly as portrayed in the most recent renderings.

SLIDESHOW: PORTLAND’S LATEST INSTA-WORTHY HOTEL



Floating shelves, air plants and natural wood features abound. So do cocktails — served on tap. The hotel walls showcase locally produced art, and the space features plenty of cool display items from PDX emporiums like Tender Loving Empire.

All this is an attempt to make the Marriott brand appeal to twenty-somethings seeking the hip new thing.

Check out these photos from the hotel, which opened Feb. 20.
....continues at Oregon Business.
