Neighborly Love: Pineapple Hospitality Gives Big to James Beard Public Market

We are thrilled to announce our support of the James Beard Public Market, Portland's forthcoming public market designed to "showcase the best of Oregon in one location." 

On June 26, 2014, Pineapple Hospitality and James Beard Public Market co-hosted a party at Hotel Rose's Bottle + Kitchen, celebrating both the opening of the new restaurant and the future of its soon-to-be neighbor, the Market. During the event, Pineapple Hospitality President Michelle Foreman Barnet surprised the Market's Development Director Lori Warner-McGee with a sizeable donation to the project.

Take an inside look at the state of the Market below, then explore their website to learn more. We believe the Market will be the single greatest contribution to this fair city since the first bridge over the Willamette!

PORTLAND, Ore. (June 5, 2014) – Hotel Rose is announcing the opening of Bottle + Kitchen, a gastropub serving globally inspired and locally refined comfort food on Friday, June 6, 2014. Bottle + Kitchen features a flavorful but approachable menu, combining bright flavors from all over the world with a Pacific Northwest flair.

“Inspiration comes from every aspect of my life, and it begins with my rustic upbringing in New Zealand and continues with my travels around the world, eating off the land,” said Executive Chef Ron Baker. “From my uncle’s sheep farm to my time off the coast of the Pacific Ocean fishing and diving for seafood. I draw inspiration from what’s around me and I want to share this inspiration with my guests. I want my guests to be inspired by what they’re eating, to share with each other, and to leave feeling satisfied and happy.”

Each culinary creation at Bottle + Kitchen starts with the freshest ingredients from local farmers and ranchers, including organic produce from Gathering Together Farms, in Philomath, Ore., and chicken from Kookoolan Farms, a family farm in Yamhill, Ore. In addition, Bottle + Kitchen carefully selects seafood approved by Monterey Bay Seafood Watch.

Items on the menu include: Dungeness Crab and Pickled Mango Ravioli served with yellow curry vinaigrette, watercress and puffed wild rice; Painted Hills Beef Tartare mixed with smoked jalapeños, truffle oil, parmesan cheese cream, served on crostini and topped with shredded, preserved egg yolks; “Buffalo” Chicken Breast served with fennel-kraut and pickled mustard seed and fingerling potato salad; Porcini Dusted Diver Scallops with Albeguina potato puree, marinated cucumbers and jalapeño almond salsa; and Profiterole Banana Split, a decomposed iteration on the classic French dessert.  

With over 30 years of culinary experience, Chef Baker is known for bringing complex flavors and innovative pairings into his menus. Prior to Bottle + Kitchen, Chef Baker served as executive chef of Hotel Fifty. Previously, he was the executive chef at Devil Foods Catering, a “Recycleworks” award recipient from the City of Portland’s Office of Sustainable Development and executive chef at Food and Bloom Catering.

Bottle + Kitchen is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner from 7 a.m.-10 p.m. and for happy hour from 4-6 p.m. Bottle + Kitchen is located in Hotel Rose, along the scenic Willamette River in downtown Portland.

"Super Fantastic" Customer Service

We recently received this email overflowing with praise for Aaron Lingley, The Maxwell Hotel's Front Desk Supervisor. Aaron -- your dedication to your job and our guests is incredible. Thank you for all you do, and for exemplifying what it means to be "a piece of the Pineapple!" 


My name is Barbara and I work at the Critical Path Institute in Tucson, Arizona. My position is that of Project Coordinator, which is part Executive Assistant and part many other things. As such, I am responsible for travel for our team and [D.H], [N.K.] and [K.R.] who are part of this wonderful team.

Working with The Maxwell Hotel has been an absolute pleasure from Brittany sending me the awesome letters of confirmation and others sending the breakdown of rates when requested by my finance department to your super fantastic Front Desk Supervisor, Aaron Lingley!

Talk about a great representation of Customer Service! I have been in Customer Service over 30 years in one way or another, and he is a true asset to your organization. He exemplifies what I feel is just that WOW feeling that I know your brand promotes. There were many twists and turns with our teams arrival and changes in time due to canceled flights and each time I emailed or called Aaron, he assisted without hesitation. He was kind, efficient, non-blaming, professional and I could go on and on. I work long hours and on supposed time off and of course, it is my choice sometimes and never expect anyone else to. However, halfway through one of the 3 days we were emailing, I realized he was on his day off and was still assisting me! We both were online later that evening making sure his guests and my team were settled and yes, we were both off. I am so in debt to him for his help to make me look good, which in turn made me look good to my leadership team and just had to send a glowing review.

Please know this guy deserves any accolades he can receive from you, your company etc. and do not forget what a value add to your team you have please. I expect to visit your hotel one day because of this and I will also recommend it to anyone I know traveling to Seattle (and our company alone travels frequently) and we all know how word of mouth is for advertising.

Thank you for the absolute pleasure of working with a fine hotel such as yours!

Kind Regards,
