Conveniently located to Downtown Ammenities

I could not have found lodging in a more convenient spot in downtown Portland: getting into the hotel from the airport with the light rail, being at walking distance from other major hotels and city sites, at walking distance from 3 big food cart clusters (great international cuisine at bargain prices!), centric location to use other MAX light rail and bus routes to move around Portland (including free rides around the Transit Mall with light rail service) . Hotel room for one person was kind of tight but adequate, everything very clean, and quiet. Staff was very courteous, although I would have liked some of them to be more knowledgeable about the City of Portland (some of them could not help me with directions to nearby places or landmarks in town.) Overall, it was a good experience and I will be back next time I need to be in Portland for business or pleasure.

Try the food carts in Downtown Portland and in the rest of the city. They are lots of fun and such interesting food! An affordable gastronomic adventure for everyone! Going during the summer is the best time of the year, as it is so sunny and bright that everything seems so green and alive!

Good for a business stay

Stayed here last minute one night after my boutique hotel booked up. It's a hotel in the heart of downtown. Quiet, comfortable, and clean.

Perfect business hotel

The wireless internet worked well the entire stay, which is a must for business travelers and can rarely be said about other hotels. Overall, the staff was friendly, the room was clean and nice, and it was a great stay!

Very enjoyable stay

Very friendly and helpful staff at this hotel at the northern end of Downtown Portland. A great location for business and enjoying the city: near brewpubs, the Pearl district and good places to eat. Decor modern and engaging … the bar / diner attached to the hotel serves a good mixture of food all through the day.

Location and service!!!

This was my second time staying here. The service and location is excellent. The rooms were clean and cozy. You have your own climate control in your room and the artwork is wonderful! All local artists!
