Portland Congress Center offers stunning 11th-floor views of the legal and financial district that surrounds it and is just minutes from Interstates 5 and 405. Already Oregon's most populous city, all predictions strongly indicate that Portland's growth - and attendant business development - can only continue. The city's economy benefits from relatively low energy cost, accessible resources, good freeways links, international airports, shipping facilities and intercontinental railroads. Many industries are based here, but the metropolitan area as a whole is home to more than 1,200 technology companies. Computer components manufacturer Intel is the largest employer, providing jobs for thousands of residents. Other sectors providing significant numbers of jobs include healthcare, professional services, education, and accommodation and food services. The Portland Congress Center has views of the West Hills and on-site amenities, but other dining, shopping, lodging and entertainment choices are just a short walk away. Free public transportation is available through downtown.
