Portland—The Hi-Lo Hotel will open by the end of the year in Portland, the Autograph Collection recently announced. The property will debut in downtown’s historic Oregon Pioneer Building.

Located at 320 SW Stark St., the 120-key boutique hotel will include five executives corner king rooms and five one-bedroom suites. All rooms are outfitted with modern organic furnishings and local hand-crafted bathroom amenities by Maak Lab featuring a custom scent designed exclusively for Hi-Lo. Amenities will include free Wi-Fi, daily newspaper delivery and a 24-hour fitness center.

Hi-Lo’s restaurant, Alto Bajo, will serve modern Mexican food in an upscale setting. Led by Michelin-starred Chef Chip Barnes in collaboration with Chef Iliana de la Vega, the restaurant will offer a balance of classic Mexican cuisine with accents of contemporary style.

“My approach to food is heavily influenced by my time in Chicago and Charleston. I focus on quality ingredients, and enjoy highlighting lesser known or overlooked ingredients in order to open people up to the vast range of things that are edible and delicious. I am excited to be in Portland because there is a wide variety of these off-the-wall ingredients to play with,” Barnes said in prepared remarks.
