I've stayed there before when traveling to our Portland office. Easy to find, enough things around for food and such, good prices, clean rooms, comforable.
My only criticism was that the wifi connection was weak and intermittent. I was told that
it doesn't respond well to iPads, so it made working in the room difficult. The PCs in the lobby were kicking me out of the IE too, but worked fine the next morning.
Dan, the front desk clerk, was very helpful and accommodating. Great customer service approach.
Is one of my worst experiences and I am coming back on July 20 as I prepayed my stay but the smell of the halls and rooms was hideous and the room dirty and when I asked the front desk to please ask to be cleaned the cleaning was terrible. i had
dinner on my room and next day I went out all day and when i came back the bed was done with dirty sheets and the food leftovers of the night before remained on my side bed
So the smell was of old food.... Dont go to this hotel and is not in front of the airport you need a car
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short drive from hotel
The king of roll is a nice sushi place in portland
we like Clarion Hotels. They have all the amenities without expensive frills and meet our needs. the only things I would change in this particular location:
1. the hall lights showed through all four sides of the room door, illuminating the entire
room. the lack of a tight, sealed door also made conversations in the hallway very loud in the room. Not able to sleep soundly as a result.
2. The breakfast buffet was staffed by one person who did not keep it stocked, was disorganized, and basically ran around apologizing instead of solving the problems. No patron after 9:00 got juice, bacon, or water.
Just what we were lookin for :) hall ways and elevator was very frigid not a happy temp for the room but not a big deal really. Check in and out was speedy as long as you have your own ducks in a row you wont have an issue.
The location to the main area of Portland was great. We were not directly in the city, which cut costs, but the smell in the hotel room was "grandma's mothy attic". The staff at the desk was very courteous and helpful with suggestions.
