The Fairmount Hotel is a historic, former hotel located in Portland, Oregon, United States, built in 1905. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[3]

The hotel was constructed for the Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition, located on 26th Avenue across from what was then the fair's main gate. The hotel was furnished by Meier & Frank. It is one of the very few extant structures associated with the 1905 world's fair.[4]
