Hilton Portland Downtown & The Duniway, A Hilton Hotel

IMLA has secured a block of sleeping rooms and a special room rate at both the Hilton Portland Downtown & The Duniway, A Hilton Hotel, first class facilities, in Portland, OR.

In order to secure this block of specially priced sleeping rooms and to keep meeting costs to a minimum, IMLA has entered into a total meeting package and contract with the hotels. If you choose to make your sleeping room reservations outside the IMLA group block, such as through an Internet reservation system or with a discount coupon, we need to advise you that IMLA can suffer significant financial penalties. IMLA can be held financially responsible for the attrition or difference between what was promised in the group block and what was actually utilized.

To allow IMLA to continue to provide a reasonable conference registration fee, we need your help in limiting our financial exposure. Please take advantage of the special room rate and block of sleeping rooms we have negotiated and make your reservation.

If you have any questions, please contact us.
