Ground Transportation


It takes approximately 40 minutes by MAX light rail train to travel from the Portland International Airport to downtown Portland. From the airport baggage claim area, look for signs for “Light Rail Tickets.” You can purchase a MAX train ticket ($2.50 to downtown) and get information about the train schedule in the airport lobby. The train runs approximately every 15 minutes to and from the airport.

To travel downtown from the airport, catch the MAX Red Line towards “City Center & Beaverton TC.” Exit the train at the Pioneer Square North stop which is located at SW Broadway and SW Morrison in downtown Portland.

All of the hotels are within walking distance or a short Lyft/Uber from Pioneer Square.
