I could be wrong but I believe it would be across the street from Loyd Center where the Double Tree hotel is.

It would be cool to do a Photoshop comp of the old Kon Tiki facade on the current hotel. Might try to get a shot from the angle of the previous (vintage) shot and see if I can match them up.

Gave it a shot with the two pics already up on here! Not the greatest Photoshop work, but not bad either!

Does anyone else have other photos from the Portland Kon-Tiki? I would love to see more details of the entire place!

Wouldn't we all! Here is a photo of the food spread and a Tiki from an advertising photo I clipped from ebay.

This postcard showed up on eBay. The back says it's the Portland Kon-Tiki, but the entrance didn't look like this postcard!? I'm confused now.

DixonAlibi, for some reason the Kon Tiki group used an artist/architects rendering of the Montreal Kon Tikis entrance for the Portland restaurant at one time. I don't know why and yes it does confuse things. Below is a postcard from the Montreal location.

Eugene Register-Guard 7/10/66
"(Mike) McVay, carved the 12-foot tiki which provides the motif for the South Seas atmosphere at Portland's Sheraton Motor Inn."

Humm... I wonder if he ever came up to Tacoma? (answer: he did, don't know if he carved the tikis that are/were here yet though)

oops! I forgot the link.

It's on pages 31-33. The link I found it on went directly to the article but just goes to that days paper now for some reason. And my guess is that this is the 12 foot tiki they were talking about... just guessing but it possibly cedar carved to look like palm.
