PORTLAND, Oregon, June 14, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Provenance Hotels (“Provenance”), owner and operator of boutique hotels, today announced the strategic sale of its minority interests in the Woodlark Hotel (the “Woodlark” or the ” Hotel”) to majority shareholder NBP Capital (“NBP”), a vertically integrated commercial real estate investment platform.

The Woodlark Hotel is a sophisticated 151-room hotel housed in two historic structures rolled into one in the heart of downtown Portland.
