ANNOUNCEMENT: DoubleTree Room Availability

Please be advised that from Thursday, August 4, 2011 through Sunday, August 7, 2011, all categories of rooms are now available at the Doubletree Hotel. On March 21, 2011, we increased the number of Doubletree Hotel room nights available on our contract block for LEP2011 because we exceeded our original estimates.

However, we were not able to increase the number of room nights for Wednesday, August 3, 2011 due to a coinciding convention at the Doubletree Hotel which ends on this night.

We recommend you reserve one night at the Courtyard by Marriott Portland Downtown at Lloyd Center, 435 NE Wasco Street, Portland, OR 97232, telephone 503-234-3200. You should still make a reservation at the DoubleTree Hotel beginning Thursday, August 4, 2011 until your departure from LEP2011. DoubleTree Hotel shuttle buses will be available to assist with your move to the DoubleTree Hotel.

We sincerely apologize for your inconvenience. We are glad to report that participation at LEP2011 exceeds our original estimates.

Free parking in the hotel garage is available for LEP guests attending any of the events taking place at the Doubletree Hotel.

You will need a pass to exit the parking structure. You may obtain a daily parking pass at the LEP registration table. Each pass is dated, so you will need a new pass each day you attend events. If you need to leave and return on the same day, please pick up a new pass upon your return.

Free parking in the hotel garage is included for overnight guests. Your room key will allow you to exit the parking garage as often as necessary. There may be multiple cars registered per room.

Portland’s Light Rail “MAX”

Portland has a modern light rail system known as “MAX“. MAX’s Red Line runs from the airport directly to the DoubleTree Hotel. It will take about 20 minutes. At the airport you will find the MAX station near baggage claim on the lower level. Take MAX to the Lloyd Center/NE 11th Ave Station. The DoubleTree will be across the street.

MAX is a very easy, modern, clean system. Downtown rides are free, but to/from the airport tickets are $2.35 Adult, $1 Honored Citizen (65+), $1.50 Youth (7-17). Children 6 and under are free. There are maps and electronic signs at the stations and in each car.

Once you are at the hotel, MAX runs several lines (Red, Blue, and Green) from the hotel (Lloyd Center Station) to downtown Portland. These are all are in the Free Rail Zone. It is free to ride — all day, every day — from the DoubleTree to and from downtown Portland. Here is an excellent map.
