One way taxi service to/from the airport to the hotel is about $45.  LERN has designated Blue Star Airporter as the official ground transportation company.  The shuttle departs every 30 minutes from the airport from 8:00 a.m. until 12:30 a.m. and from the hotel from 4:20 a.m. to 6:50 p.m.  No reservation is required for departures during the times listed.   Service from the airport and hotel outside the listed hours is available but requires a reservation which can be made by calling 503-249-1837.  Tell your shuttle driver you are attending the “LERN” convention to receive the reduced fare of $11 one way and $22 round trip, per person.  Light Rail service on the MAX red line is currently $2.50.  The train departs from just outside the terminal and the closest stop to the hotel is Pioneer Square North which is two blocks from the hotel.

By Train

AMTRAK services Portland via Union Station downtown. One way taxi fare is about $10.  If you have the time, consider taking the train to Seattle for under $32 or even Vancouver, BC for under $60.  Travelers going to Vancouver will need a valid passport.

Getting around during your visit

You don’t need a car to explore Portland as the most popular sites are either walking distance from the hotel or located along a light rail line.  All of the MAX light rail lines are no more than two blocks from the hotel including the Red line that services the airport.  The streetcar, serving popular destinations such as the Pearl District or Nob Hill, is a four block walk from the hotel.
