Project Description

Society Hotel Renovation

The November 2015 opening of the Society Hotel on the corner of NW 3rd and Davis marked yet another milestone in the vision for Old Town/Chinatown as a safe, vibrant, economically healthy neighborhood. The project owners behind the revival of the long-dormant Mariners building, built in 1881 as a boarding house for sailors, have attracted a new mix of travelers to enjoy the ground floor café, spectacular views from the rooftop deck, and an eclectic mix of rooms from bunk-style to king-size comforts.

Jessie Burke, one of the project owners, had worked with Prosper Portland in a number of capacities, including as owner of Posies Bakery and an active participant in urban renewal projects. She said, “The work that I’ve found myself doing is only possible with a partner like [Prosper Portland] being willing to create an opportunity for someone like me – someone who doesn’t fit the traditional mold for this project type and business, but we’re both willing to give it a shot.”
