The Commodore Hotel is an Art Deco-style former hotel building in Portland, Oregon, United States. It was built in 1925 by Herman Brookman, and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The Commodore Hotel became the home of KTBR radio (later known as KALE) beginning on November 12, 1927, when the station moved from 393½ Yamhill Street. On March 28, 1928, KTBR moved to the Weatherly Building.
By 1984, when the building was added to the National Register, it had already ceased to be used as a hotel and was vacant. Plans to renovate the building and convert it into apartments were approved by the Portland Development Commission that year. The hotel currently houses a market, apartments, and a restaurant.
