Breathtaking views of the Willamette River and Riverview Park.

What it's like

As you step inside The Independence, you’ll notice that nature and the magnificent outdoors remain front and center in your experience.  With expansive views, a rooftop deck, and a patio that's just a stone’s throw from the river, Mother Nature is never far. As you step into your room, you’ll find a live-edge headboard from salvaged redwood trees. Local art adorns the walls ­– each piece is one of a kind.

Small touches

There is nothing ordinary about the guest rooms at The Independence. Exceptional views, generously-sized bathrooms, original artwork, bike storage, luxury robes, fine local bath products – your stay comes loaded with amenities. Enjoy the convenience of premium high-speed WiFi, an in-room refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker.

Eat and drink

This is not your typical complimentary hotel breakfast. Guests enjoy a choice of several fresh-made breakfast dishes from Territory Restaurant, located onsite.  You’ll want to return to Territory for lunch, dinner, snacks, and drinks. Inspired by the bounty of the Pacific Northwest, Territory specializes in fine artisan cuisine made with fresh, local ingredients. It’s a favorite of locals and guests alike.
