AAAR 35th Annual Conference


DoubleTree by Hilton
1000 NE Multnomah Street
Portland, OR 97232

Our host hotel for the 2016 AAAR Conference is the DoubleTree by Hilton, the largest hotel within walking distance of the Oregon Convention Center, where all conference sessions will be held.

Reduced sleeping room rates for AAAR registrants have been negotiated with the DoubleTree. The single/double occupancy rate is just $179, including complimentary wireless internet! A few rooms are available at a government rate of $151 single/double.

Your room reservations with the hotel need to be made no later than September 24, 2016. We anticipate, however, that the AAAR room block will sell out quickly, and availability and rate cannot be guaranteed once the block is full.

The newly renovated DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Portland will provide a warm welcome, complete with freshly baked cookies upon arrival! Ideally located in the center of the metropolitan area, you’ll enjoy convenient travel on the Portland MAX light rail, located directly outside the hotel.

The accommodations offer delightful views of either the downtown area or the beautiful Cascade Mountain Range, and the DoubleTree is known for its sustainable practices, including waste reduction, energy efficiency and localized purchasing.

Situated in the heart of the Lloyd District, the hotel provides easy access to the Lloyd Center Mall, Oregon’s largest shopping mall. You can enjoy tax-free shopping, have a go at the Lloyd Center ice rink, or indulge in a delicious meal via a number of dining options.

You might also enjoy a visit to the Oregon Museum of Science & Industry, where you can discover hands-on exhibits and watch a film on the impressive IMAX Dome theatre. Or, explore the local area, which is filled with great coffee shops, spas, boutique shops and a myriad of restaurants – all within a short walk of our host hotel.

Central Reservations Office: Guests can make reservations by phone 24 hours a day and 7 days a week through the DoubleTree by Hilton Central Reservations office by calling toll free 1-800-996-0510. Be sure to mention that you are an AAAR conference registrant and want the special rate at the DoubleTree by Hilton Portland.
