The Society Hotel
The Society hotel in the heart of PDX has a rich history-
Built in 1881, The Seaman’s Friends Society constructed it to serve as a safe haven for sailors. Later it was rented to the Portland Hospital for one year (when original patient register was found, visitor signature included Lovejoy, Ladd and Hawthorne). In the early 1900s it was a Japanese owned hotel that served primarily immigrants, & through the years many other communities made their start in the building, including Jewish merchants, Gypsy royalty, & most recently the MacDonald Center. More than taking over an existing hotel, the objective was to revitalize something forgotten, and create a lasting, positive change in the community. That’s how the Society Hotel was born.
