Biltmore Hotel

Biltmore Hotel, 1905

The Biltmore Hotel sign was restored during recent building renovation by Portland's Housing Development Center. The hotel originally housed dock workers and other men in single-occupancy rooms. It stands at NW 6th and Everett.

I stayed at the Biltmore in the early 80s for $25 a week. It catered to many of the limited income adults who couldn't really afford anything else at the time. It was really big inside and had potential to be restored to how it initially was. Thank you for these photos...Memories are great! :)
