Great hotel and location

I stayed here for the Rock and Roll Portland Half and was less than a 15 minute walk away from the start line. The hotel room is Portland quirky, with a large bathroom (mine had a skylight) and fireplace. It was right on the Tri Met line for the airport and a block or two away from most restaurants. It also has a Starbucks that served small plates, beer, and wine and was open after hours. I requested a fan because of the rain and had a fan in my room upon my arrival. It was a fantastic stay, the room matched the awesomeness of the staff!

Excellent Conference Venue

I chose this hotel as it was the official conference venue for my recent trip. The hotel has been recently renovated/restored to its previous glory. It is beautiful and full of wonderful architectural detail. The staff were extremely friendly and competent. Upon check-in all of the porters were busy, so the desk agent took my bags to my room for me. During the conference I needed/wanted several special items, like additional tables set up, glass blocks to support some mechanical equipment, and even milk for my own personal enjoyment when it was not on the menu. I stopped the first staff person I saw and in each of the many instances - that person instantly took care of the issue with grace and a smile. What wonderful service. The only reason I did not give room comfort full marks was because the rooms are quite dark. They are beautiful - mine was a gorgeous forest green, but the dark colors of the paint and the dark woods sucked up much of the light. It was not uncomfortably dark - just perpetual 'mood' lighting. I would definitely stay again!

Perfect get-away!

Got a great deal on a King size bedroom for a Single night stay. Booked the room for my wedding anniversary and it certainly didn't disappoint. Had nice cozy romantic room. Loved the historic old building and all it's unique charm. Our did not have a view, but that really wasn't part of our criteria or a need for our stay. The hotel staff was helpful and friendly. Our only complaints were in regard to parking, but that was mostly because we were very unfamiliar with the nuances of overnight parking in a big city. In hind-sight I'd call ahead and get advice on parking if you don't plan to use their valet services. Overall Loved this hotel!

The late night Starbucks attached to the hotel has a nice variety of beverages and snacks for any person. Grabbed a late night snack there before retiring for the evening. The baristas/servers were friendly and helpful. Highly recommend taking advantage of their presence in the hotel and easy access.

Great long weekend stay

We enjoyed our trip and our hotel stay. Everyone was very nice and willing to help with anything we needed. Hotel is located perfectly in the city and everything is walking distance. The room was a bit small and our view was not nice, we had a building wall in front of us but that was our only complaint the whole time. Very happy!
