FIRST LOOK: The Hoxton ramps up US expansion with second launch next month


The Hoxton is to open its second property in the US next month, hot on the heels of its debut hotel launch in New York in September.

Set to open late October, The Hoxton Portland will be the second property in the brand’s rapid North American expansion, following The Hoxton Williamsburg, which opened its doors in Brooklyn this month.

Situated in a building that dates back to 1906, The Hoxton, Portland is located in the city’s Old Town Chinatown, and will be home to 119 rooms; a large, open lobby; three food and drink spaces ran in partnership with local restaurant group, Submarine Hospitality and a basement cocktail bar.

The 119 bedrooms have been designed by Ennismore Design Studio, inspired by the North-West modernism movement, and will come in four sizes (Shoebox, Snug, Cosy and Roomy) and feature rich timber panelling, pink marbles, and brass feature lighting.

The communal spaces feature the building’s original timber columns, exposed brick walls, and reclaimed timber floors throughout. Bespoke geometric tiles add punch to hotel’s main restaurant, alongside fluted leather benches and colourful art-filled walls.

The Hoxton, Portland has partnered with Submarine Hospitality, known for leading restaurants Ava Gene’s and Tusks for its three food and drink outlets across the hotel.

La Neta, set on the ground floor, is an all-day dining experience with Mexican-inspired cuisine rooted in the Pacific Northwest, which will embrace Submarine’s trademark ‘aggressively seasonal’ approach to the menu.

Meanwhile, the rooftop restaurant, Tope, is a taqueria inspired by the street food of Mexico City with a mezcal-focused cocktail list.

And tucked into the basement is a cocktail bar with its own entrance, serving up an evolving list of culinary cocktails and a playful menu of sharable American-Chinese classics with seasonal ingredients as a nod to the surrounding Old Town Chinatown neighbourhood.

The Ennismore family is comprised of The Hoxton, a global collection of open-house hotels; Gleneagles, the iconic glorious playground in the Scottish Highlands with upcoming members clubs in London and Edinburgh; NoCo, a brand that will ‘re-define’ the budget hotel experience; Eynsham Hall, a 50 acre country-house estate in Oxfordshire that will soon be reimagined, and several standalone restaurants (Breddos Tacos, EGGBREAK and Tandoor Chop House) in addition to its growing portfolio of in-hotel restaurants, bars and retail.
