Located within reach of other major destinations such as Seattle and Vancouver, Portland is a centre for business travel and its development in the past few years has seen a rise in corporations moving to the area.

Serviced apartments and corporate housing in Portland offer a unique accommodation option, with the inclusion of living rooms, dining areas, and kitchens as well as comfortable bedrooms.

Portland was originally established during the 1800s when Portland’s location at the confluence of Willamette and Columbia River made it a significant trade position. In the beginning, development of the city gained it the reputation of being a port town, with many sailors passing through. Soon the city became dominant in the lumber industry due to its forest surroundings.

During the 20th century, the population of Portland tripled and the technology industries began to emerge. The creation of Intel in the area brought with it more and more people seeking business opportunities. Although trade is still a big part of the economy, Portland has also become a hub for sports shoe manufacturers and is home to the headquarters of Nike, Adidas, and Dr Martens to name a few.
