On Thursday, July 13th the Cindy Thompson Events team was HipHolster-ready as we celebrated the opening of Portland's newest hotel, the Hi-Lo Hotel, part of the Marriott Autograph Collection. The 120-room upscale boutique hotel aims to create a new standard for the modern day Portland luxury experience. Team member Amanda is wearing our popular HipHolster, The Comcatch.

Client Goal: Expose the latest hotel to the city's trend setters so that the Hi-Lo becomes the go-to place for both business and leisure travel, with the restaurant and lounge attracting locals too.

The Crowd: Hi-Lo caters towards foodies, artists, young professionals and the savvy business traveler looking for a true Portland experience. The local press and business community was also invited.

The Poet: Guests answered the question "Where Will You Wander?" and a poem was written for them.

The Performances: Local rapper Rasheed Jamal and opera star May Arden paired up for a contemporary duet blending both genres and the end result was a show-stopper!
