The Multnomah Hotel, located in downtown Portland, Oregon, United States, is a historic hotel building listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It currently operates as the Embassy Suites Portland - Downtown.
The 700-room hotel was built by local entrepreneur Philip Gevurtz and opened on February 8, 1912. The nine-story building filled an entire city block. It was operated by Western Hotels, now known as Westin Hotels & Resorts, from 1931 until it closed in 1963. At the time of its closure, The Oregonian wrote that the Multnomah had been "one of the most famous hotels on the Pacific Coast". From 1965 to 1992 the building housed government offices. It was sold in 1995 and restored, its 700 rooms reduced to 276 suites, reopening in 1997 as the Embassy Suites Portland - Downtown.
