The Hotel Vintage Plaza, formerly the Imperial Hotel and informally The Plaza, is a historic hotel building in downtown, Portland, Oregon.

Built in 1894, the hotel is in the Romanesque architectural style. A glass false storefront was removed in a 1980's renovation, revealing the structure's lower level stonework. The hotel's former name appears in the stonework above the Washington Street entrance. [King, Bart: An Architectural Guidebook to Portland, pgs. 32-33. Gibbs Smith, 2001] It continues on in its role as a hotel today. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985. [ cite web
