Additional Options

Budget Option: Inn at the Convention Center
420 NE Holladay St., Portland, OR 97232
Phone Reservations: 503-233-6331
Website: innatcc.com
Directly across the street from the Convention Center and rates as low as $100 (1/3 the cost of most Downtown Portland hotels).  The hotel is dated, there is no getting around that.  Take a look at Tripadvisor and other online review sites and see if the price/location to quality trade off hits the right note for you.

Budget Option: University Place Hotel
310 SW Lincoln St, Portland, OR 97201
Phone Reservations: (503) 221-0140
Website: https://www.uplacehotel.com/
This hotel is located in the southern end of downtown Portland and is a 20-25 min light rail ride from the Oregon Convention Center (stations are steps away from both locations).  Like the Inn at the Convention Center, rooms only meet basic needs, but can be had for less than $100 per night.

Mid-Range Option: Aloft Portland Airport at Cascade Station
9920 NE Cascades Pkwy, Portland, OR 97220
Phone Reservations: (503) 200-5678
Website: http://www.aloftportlandairport.com
A trendy property that connects via the MAX Red Line to both the Portland Airport and the Oregon Convention Center.  They accept government rate for federal and military employees through their website without having to call.  It’s not downtown, but it is a very easy train trip right to steps of the Oregon Convention Center and has shopping and dining options that are walkable around the hotel.

Mid to High Range Options: See Lewis and Clark Hotel List
Lewis and Clark maintains a curated list of area hotels that may be available after our room blocks expire or fill at the Hotel Eastlund.  A quick review of these properties on 4/13/18 showed that many are not currently honoring their discount rates for summer, but the list can help tailor your search from the large number of hotels in Portland.
Airport Shuttles: 

Shuttles to downtown Portland hotels can be arranged at the ground transportation information desk in the baggage claim area of the PDX Airport. Shuttle times and cost to get back to the Airport after the Conference will be provided shortly.

Public Transportation: 
It is also possible to use the TriMet public transportation system for travel between the hotel and the PDX Airport. The TriMet Trip Planner gives step-by-step travel directions.
