Residence Inn by Marriott Portland Waterfront

Reshaping Portland to put the best face forward for visitors.


Ledgewood Construction completed a new 141,000-s.f. extended-stay hotel in Portland for Summit Hotel Properties. The 179-suite Residence Inn by Marriott Portland Waterfront is the latest addition to the redeveloping East End neighborhood — located directly next to the Ocean Gateway garage, and across from the Ocean Gateway cruise ship terminal.

The first extended-stay property on Portland’s peninsula, the hotel’s suite-style rooms include kitchenettes, and are geared toward business travelers and vacationing families. Curtain-wall glass provides stellar city or bay views. Guests can also enjoy amenities such as the pool, gym, continental breakfast area, lounge and bar. On the building’s second level, guests can exit onto an enclosed, openair courtyard with comfortable seating to enjoy the sun or evening air.

Located on a triangular-shaped parcel directly adjacent to the Ocean Gateway Parking Garage, in front of the long-standing Shipyard Brewing Company and directly on busy Fore Street, this project required extensive coordination with City services to ensure both vehicle and pedestrian safety. Proper sequencing and scheduling of deliveries, as well as strong communication with both vendors and neighboring businesses were key to its successful completion.
