PORTLAND, OR (April 14, 2004) -- Doubletree Hotel & Executive Meeting Center Portland - Lloyd Center

PORTLAND, Ore., (April 6, 2004) – The Doubletree Hotel & Executive Meeting Center Portland – Lloyd Center today announced the completion of its new, progressive Executive Meeting Center (EMC). The newly built center, approved by the Independent Association of Conferences & Conventions (IACC), is poised to challenge the concept of traditional meeting spaces and attract more business to the prominent hotel.

“We are committed to ensuring that our transitory guests and meeting participants have the best possible experience. We believe our new state-of-the-art meeting facility will satisfy an unparalleled niche in the Portland market,” states Richard Conti, president, Boykin Lodging Company, owner of the hotel.

The EMC offers 8,500 square feet with nine dedicated conference rooms, which complements the 38,000 square feet of event and banquet space already available at the hotel. The EMC meets the high standards put forth by IACC and is the only center of its kind Portland.

Each conference room is equipped with ergonomic chairs, acoustical treatments, individual climate controls and the latest technology and audio-visual equipment. A dedicated conference support team, including planning and technical services, helps to ensure a successful meeting experience.

The EMC offers three specific packages, Complete Meeting Package; Modified Meeting Package and a Day Meeting Package, to accommodate meetings and conferences of varying size and requirements.

Craig Campbell, hotel director of marketing noted, “The team at the Doubletree Hotel Portland-Lloyd Center spent countless hours with local meeting planners and training directors discussing how to design a facility that would provide the ideal meeting environment. Having seen the final product, many have agreed that we have succeeded in meeting that objective.”

The Doubletree Hotel Portland - Lloyd Center & Executive Meeting Center continues to hold its status as a headquarters hotel for many Portland conventions. The hotel is perfectly located in the center of the city, within walking distance of the newly expanded Oregon Convention Center, the Rose Garden Arena and Memorial Coliseum. Located on the MAX lightrail system in Downtown Portland's “fareless square,” this same lightrail system now picks up at baggage claim at Portland International Airport and drops you off conveniently across the street from the hotel's front door for less than $5.00 round trip.

Guests can relax in one of the hotel's 476 beautifully appointed guest rooms and suites featuring large work desks, high-speed internet access, two phones, in-room coffee and tea, hair dryers, on-demand movies, personalized voice mail, and incredible views of either the city skyline or the Cascade Mountains.

For an easy night on the town, the Doubletree is adjacent to the Lloyd Center Mall which featuring over 200 stores and restaurants, 18 movie theaters and an ice skating rink. The trendy shops on Broadway are just blocks away, and Holladay Park is across the street, where visitors to the area can relax and take in the beautiful Oregon scenery.
