Here at the aloft Portland, we ourselves are a big new thing, but we're a part of a development that's even bigger---Cascade Station!
A mixed-use project with shopping, offices, and hotels (along with two MAX light rail stops), Cascade Station started with a sweet Swedish bang---Ikea! Ikea's 2007 opening spurred along a cascade of additional shopping and dining options.
Shopping highlights include Best Buy, Kay Jewelers, Bath+Body Works, The Carharrt Store, Avenue, and a super Target. Dining hot spots include Buffalo Wild Wings, Red Robin, Starbucks, Pizano's Pizza, and even Ikea's famous Swedish cafe, restaurant, and market. And that's just the tip of the iceberg: check out the complete listing for the full skinny on all the walking-distance goodies!
That new Cascade Station official site also has the inside track on what's coming next---including an IHOP opening soon, directly adjacent to us!
Whatever your tastes or needs, Cascade Station is a completely convenient array of destinations. And don't forget; Oregon has no sales tax, so big savings await :)
