There are many myths as to how the Pearl District got its name. Some claim a local artist coined the term when he described the industrial style buildings that populate the area as “oysters” and the artists who inhabited them as “pearls”, while others insist that the area took a long time to develop, just like a pearl.
The historically industrial area began to expand around the late 1970s as artists flocked to the area to take advantage of low costs and large studio spaces. As a result, galleries, boutiques, and eateries followed, along with city-sanctioned revitalization projects. Today, the area is one of the top places to visit in the city, making our hotel near the Pearl District, Portland the best place to stay during your trip!
