The Nines, a Luxury Collection Hotel

525 SW Morrison St.
Portland , OR , United States
(503) 222-9996

To see the future of green design, take a close look at the Nines (as in “dressed to the…”), set on the top floors of the former Meier & Frank department store overlooking Portland’s Pioneer Square. Fashion-inspired interiors—Ralph Pucci–designed mannequins in the lobby and Tiffany-blue guest rooms—belie the serious environmental effort behind the scenes. For example, 90 percent of the waste produced during renovation was recycled, and all of the hotel’s electricity comes from renewable sources. Expected in 2009: LEED Silver certification, which will make this one of the greenest urban luxury hotels in the United States.
