Check-in to this sleek Portland conversion of an apartment building was smooth as silk. Greeted by name, and easy check in is the start to a great stay. The fire features in the courtyard with all manner of business types relaxing after the day was serene. The room, while small, was up to the minute in fashion, and the bed... More

Very clean, stylish hotel with friendly efficient staff in very good downtown location within walking distance to several museums & unique cafes, coffee houses and the river walk. Room very clean and comfortable, but located above garbage collection area which was often noisy in the morning. Bathroom has sliding door which does not entirely close leaving a 1 inch gap...more...

I was in Portland for less than 24 hours. Desk staff were great. After a long working day and evening, I arrived in my room and attempted to sleep only to find that the noise from the lift made it impossible. (Room 534 I think.) I was moved to another room - not good to have to pack everything up... More

This is such a great hotel. It's not too big or too small. The lobby and rooms are beautifully designed and furnished. We got perfect restaurant recommendations from the concierge (Jonny) and the bar downstairs has some delicious cocktails and very thin crispy french fries for those nights you don't feel like going out. Helpful advice: Park your car in... More

I had 30$ worth of medication stolen out of my car the first night I was parked by the valet. I had literally just purchased it and knew exactly where it was placed in my car (passenger seat underneath swag/flyers from tradeshow). Why didn't I bother mentioning it, after discovering the theft the next morning immediately after getting my car... More

The rooms are a little on the small side, but nicely appointed. They have a great deal with 24-hour fitness just a block away. So while it's not as convenient as on-site, it is a full-service gym with lots of folks around you to keep you motivated. Front desk folks were always super helpful and friendly. Valet was totally on... More

The rooms are somewhat small, but quite tastefully decorated both in terms of the color scheme and the art that is on the walls. The only downside to the rooms for us was the shortage of electrical outlets for re-charging our phones and computers. As others have mentioned, the staff is quite friendly and helpful. It is very conveniently located... More

I slept like a baby even though I was there for an important interview...found several restaurants I wanted to try within blocks...and Portland's great city transit to the airport and beyond was steps from the door. I'll always stay here when I travel to this town.

If you are not familiar with the central part of the downtown Portland area, the staff at this hotel is very helpful with locating what you are interested in. Whether it is shopping, dining, entertainment, bar hopping or brewery bouncing, the concierge, Johnnie started helping me decide where to go and how to get there before my arrival and helped... More
