The Nines is 12 miles from Portland International Airport, via I-84. MAX light-rail trains also run from the airport to downtown and stop on the corner near the hotel. However you arrive, you're in one walkable city: from the hotel, you can explore downtown's department stores, see why the Pearl District is so treasured and visit sites like the Portland Art Museum (a six-block walk). The Japanese Garden is a 10-minute drive and the Oregon Zoo is 15 minutes away by car. Ask the concierge about Willamette wine country tours. "The Nines is a great hotel in a fantastic downtown location. It would be hard to do better in Portland," say our guests, who add that The Nines, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Portland is a "very chic and stylish boutique hotel" and a "great place for a couple's getaway."
