I was never told I was to pay $40 a day for parking but found that out when I got there I also booked the hotel because they had a pool but wasn’t available or open! They should update their policies on their website so we don’t get tricked

Like the two-bedroom with kitchen

Room was ready to and we even arrived an hour early. The crib we requested was already set up in the room as well. They were on top of their game and the greeting staff was pleasent. Second time we have stayed here and I'm sure we'll be back again for our next Portland wknd get away

Property close to the highway entrance and exit. Rooms dish washer looked to worked on and sticking out ?

Conveniently located close to waterfront and downtown area.

Lovely location next to the river front walk. Staff were very nice and helpful.

Everything was going smoothly until we got a rude staff. We wanted to get a later check out and the guy who was in a suit that is African American says a flat No. I then said my three friends who are also staying here with their family were all able to get a late check out. He said it’s because they talk to the right person. I asked to talk to that right person and he said he didn’t know who that person is. That is very rude of him. He then said anything else? That was rude. Please coach your employee to not be rude to clients staying there especially my first time with my children. I will not stay there again. He must hate his job..

Your first surprise will unfortunately be the $37 cost for parking. That would have been nice to know when I booked the room. The room itself was nice. It had lots of room and good seating It was a little icky to find toenails left behind under the sink area. The coffee pot leaked all over the counter, and the bathroom light didn't work in the evening (but weirdly it worked the next morning). Breakfast was pretty ordinary. Motel standard scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits & gravy, waffles, and some selection of fresh fruit.

Great location for Streetcar and all arts places in Pearl District, grocery shopping to use the kitchen (Target at the Alder Street Car stop), great breakfast, great staff. Pool was big and clean but needs to be warmer and someone needs to be there on the weekend with all the kids to make people share the pool better.

Hotel was okay, a little dated. No really good restaurant options around, so it feels a little isolated.

Unfortunately this was a poor experience. Bed had a sink hole in it and thermostat did not work. I was offered a new room and had to take it due to room getting way too warm and I had unpacked (and had to repack) 7 days with of clothes, toiletries and food. Next room bed also poor but better than last. Front desk person said how tired he was of hearing the complaint and that they were starting to replace mattresses -- but I don't think they should wait until they are this bad. (maybe I shouldn't expect a good nights sleep at the rate of $220/night?) Initially thermostat didn't work but room was cooler then I rememberd to try the breaker (what was tried in the last rm) and it worked (was tired of complaining to front desk). Housekeeping left out details: shower soap dish full of water, coffee machine not cleaned and coffee not replaced, dishwasher run with only 3 dishes in it (waste), ran out of both TP and tissues, other things I tried to ignore). Others in my workshop that was held at the hotel all reported excellent experiences, so maybe it was just one of those "off" times.

Thank you for the feedback. We understand that the cost parking in a downtown environment can be a little unexpected which is why we try to keep our rates as one of the lowest for a hotel in downtown Portland. We are also sorry that the pool effected your stay as we had communicated with all of our hotel booking partners about the closure. We hope to soon bring back all the amenities our guests love. Thank you.
