The tourism and hospitality industries of Portland are currently experiencing a good return of business. However, a complete revival to the levels of the pre-pandemic times is not hoped to achieve until 2024 at the earliest, industry experts claimed this on Thursday.


The demand for hotel lodging in the four weeks ending July 9th in the central business district of Portland, a region that consists of the downtown, the Pearl District and the Lloyd District, witnessed an increase by 28% during the same time 2021, as per the data provided to Travel Portland by STR, a company into hotel industry research. So far in 2022, over 176,000 room nights were booked compared to 138,000 in 2021.


The Chief Strategy officer at Travel Portland, Megan Conway, said that as we all walk through the city or the downtown, we can spot as well as sense that city buzz that’s coming back slowly and is back when we see those events being organized on weekends. Megan also added that we all have got thousands of people here and seeing and experiencing the city. For hotel partners, it’s been in fact a tough time; however the data that we have does provide great cheerfulness for Portland’s future.


The leaders of other industries have shown the same confidence at the news conference on Thursday in terms of the speed at which tourism is reviving.
