Conference

No fridge, micro, extra seating...room was clean, yet very outdated. For the price, hotel should be upgraded. Staff upon arrival was there, but never said a word until Micheal came out from the back and jogged to the desk to check me in while two women leaned against the counter looking at me but not saying a word or even a smile... Food at our conference was good...must have a mid-eastern chef.

Decent hotel, near downtown

The hotel staff was busy and not too concerned with their customer service. They were really good about getting us a taxi, but it took over half an hour to catch one....

Pretty Good for the Money

For less than $70 the room and hotel are pretty darn good! Just like a typical hotel room at Best Western etc but for much cheaper. I recommend the free chocolate chip cookies (delish!) that they offer at the front desk. The one down fall was parking. There was nothing about having to pay $12 per night, per car for parking in their parking lot, but not too terrible, I suppose. All around a great deal and only about .8 mi from Pioneer Place.

Very nice for a University/Downtown hote

We have stayed at this hotel three times since visiting in the Portland area. It is very amenable and clean. Nothing fancy and just the necessities, but the rates are great and employees are learning the business under the University protocol, so having young people there trying to meet all needs was great. Hotel and Management are updating all the time, it is always looking for something better.

Parking Problem

One negative. Our son picked us up at the airport and took us to this hotel. He received a $40 parking ticket for parking his auto in the hotel lot while helping us with our baggage into the hotel. All thirty minute spaces were taken and the hotel entry had two unattended vehicles parked in front of it. We took our baggage out of his car and took them to our room and came out to the vehicle with a parking ticket on it. Fifteen minutes is all we needed to get back to the car. What a rip-off !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
