With a 460-foot-tall crystalline tower in downtown Portland, the legendary Ritz-Carlton brand makes its Pacific Northwest debut. Designed by GBD Architects with interiors by Roam Interior Design, the 35-story building is a glittering, jewel-like addition to the Portland skyline.

Even more glamour awaits inside the 251-room hotel, which is capped by 15 floors of private residences. Roam combined the magic of the Northwest’s lush landscape with the best of modern luxury when outfitting public spaces such as the hotel’s signature restaurant Bellpine and Forest Hall, a grand lobby complete with an intimate bar that feels plucked from the wilderness.

“In deep, dark greens, blues and smoky hues, mist almost seems to rise around you,” muses Mary Alice Palmer, founding partner of Roam. Inside the guest rooms, soft wood tones recall Oregon’s forests, while lush carpeting evokes the running water of the state’s scenic rivers. The building itself takes inspiration from nature as well with a cascading series of exterior stormwater planters that are activated by rainfall. “We hope this destination will become a convivial living room for visitors from near and far to enjoy the spectacular beauty of the region,” adds Palmer.
