Retired Ferry To Become Floating Hotel in NW Portland

Owners of The Society Hotel in Old Town have applied for permits to begin development on a floating hotel in NW Portland. The ambitious plan includes converting a retired 1960s ferry into a hotel, spa, restaurant, and farmers’ market. Jonathan Cohen from The Society Hotel purchased the ferry at auction for $300,000 earlier this year. The 352-foot long Alaskan Ferry, MV Taku, was completed in 1963 and retired in 2015. Once renovated, the hotel ferry will be able to cruise the Columbia and Willamette rivers when not moored at Terminal 1 in Northwest Portland.
