Discover the area’s indie soul and explore the top things to do in downtown Portland

Oregon’s largest city has always been a haven for the unconventional, and our Radisson RED hotel puts you in the center of Portland’s off-beat heart—the Downtown Arts District. Post up in one of our sleek studios, and join our eclectic cast of self-proclaimed book nerds, weirdos, and trend-watching foodies—James Beard was a local, after all. Portlanders take coffee seriously, and you’ll find the real deal on nearly every corner, right next to shopping spots that make counterculture feel cozy. Want to see some green? Rent a bike or BYO, and pedal to Portland State University along the South Park Blocks greenway. Or take in things to do like the Oregon Symphony at nearby Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall.
