PM Hospitality Set to Operate New Portland Hotel, Part of Hilton’s Most Recent Brand
- Nov 20, 2014
The growing appeal of the Pacific Northwest means that more companies are looking to establish a presence in the region. Hospitality has been a huge component in the conversation regarding major cities in the area, such as Seattle and Portland. The two largest cities in the Pacific Northwest are currently both looking for options to increase the amount of convention space and the number of rooms that could accommodate the growing amount of tourists and business travelers. The latest hospitality company announcing an expansion in the area is PM Hospitality Strategies Inc., with the company being selected to operate a new Canopy by Hilton facility in Portland’s Pearl District.
The new hotel facility is set to be developed by The Buccini/Pollin Group, a full-service real estate acquisition, development and management company. It will be part of Hilton’s new lifestyle brand that currently totals 11 new properties, a press release announcing the new Portland hotel shows. Set to be located in The Pearl District, the new hotel was announced along with a new facility that is set to be built in Rockville, Md., on the outskirts of Washington, D.C. The locations were part of the brand’s idea of offering comfort and design, more included value, great neighborhoods and a “positively yours” culture.
According to Joseph Bojanowski, president of PM Hospitality Strategies, the company’s experience in working with Hilton means that PMHS is “uniquely qualified to be among the first operators of this newly minted brand.” The official also noted that “the Canopy brand, with its local orientation and included value pricing, will be a direct hit for those experience-oriented travelers.”
