Reminder, the OryCon hotel is:

Holiday Inn Portland - Columbia Riverfront
Address: 909 N Hayden Island Dr, Portland, OR 97217
Phone: (503) 283-4466

There will be plenty of room in the hotel parking lot. The parking lot is now fenced and the hotel is running additional security to improve the security of the lot.

From the Airport

If you're arriving via the airport, sorry, the hotel has no shuttle service. Better to arrange your own. The hotel is a 30-45 min drive from the airport.

Transportation Options from and to the Portland International Airport are here on the airport web page.

For more local concerns

The MAX train (Yellow line) will likely be your main route to get closer to the hotel (the Expo Center), but you'll need to transfer to a bus to finish the trip. We suggest you check http://trimet.org for specific times and connections.

Driving directions to the hotel

The Holiday Inn Portland is next to the I5 freeway with southbound and northbound exits and entrances within sight of the hotel. For either direction, take Hayden Island, Exit 308. The northbound exit will leave you pointing right at the hotel. For the southbound exit you will be steered north, onto N Central Ave. Go a short distance to the end and turn right onto N. Hayden Island Dr., go under the I5 overpass and the hotel is the first big thing on your left.

The Holiday Inn also has more detailed driving directions on their web page:

Parking & Transportation

Public Transportation – Tri-Met

There is a bus stop right across the street from the hotel, where traffic exits I5. Only one bus stops there, though it runs fairly frequently on weekdays:

6 - Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Jantzen Beach/Portland City Center
Stop: N Hayden Island Dr & Tomahawk Island Dr

Visit the Tri-Met web page for directions, route maps, schedules and trip planner for how to connect to the #6 bus.


Sadly, while Tri-Met is the most economical, and the connections are simple (Red line MAX train from the airport connecting to the #6 bus route), it is the least efficient choice for getting from the airport to the hotel. Only take it if you want to save money and have an extra hour to kill.
