This was our second visit and equally enjoyable as our first. Location is great for walking to good restaurants, and we loved the wonderful antiques that are thoughtfully displayed for the enjoyment of the guests. We've had great conversation and excellent breakfasts. The innkeepers provide high quality linens and spa shower lotions/shampoos. We stayed in the Lavonna room and enjoyed... More

I recently stayed at this inn in October. We stayed in the Lavonna room which was very spacious and had a sleep number bed. It was a little loud because of the traffic in the mornings but definitely manageable. Breakfasts were wonderful and filling. Our hosts were extremely friendly and great to chat with. Guests have access to a fridge... More

Thanks for your review. The Lavonna room is very beautiful. It is located on a corner and, as we indicate on our website, it has more street sound then other rooms. Most guests don't really notice the street sound. For guests who are sound sensitive we recommend the Garden Room, he Escapade Room. More

First sight and old-world charm of this grandiose home is seductive. We found the location ideal, an important building in the historic part of the city yet just one small block from restaurants and shops. We only stayed for two nights in the Victorian basement appartment and did not take breakfast, but did take advantage of the generous supply of... More

Thanks for taking the time to write. In renovating the Victorian Apartment we had to choose whether to "box in" the heating pipes which are the original and current hot water heating system for the house. We decided to leave them exposed and paint them in a brass color -- a "Captain Nemo" look. It is true that there are... More

The home is beautiful inside and out. It is well-maintained and tastefully decorated. Although it is situated in a residential area in the City, it is on a street serviced by City buses and is quite noisy. Even after pulling down the shades, our room had a lot of street light filtering in. The bed was decent. Linens were clean.... More

We are always concerned when we fail to meet the needs of our guests. Normally my partner and I or one of our staff greet each guest at the time of arrival and give them a tour of the bed & breakfast. Occasionally we need to have the guest enter by key code if they arrive when we are away... More

We stayed in the Victorian Apartment which has its own kitchen and dining area and washing machine and dryer. The apartment is in the basement with pipes below the ceiling which detract a little from its ambience but it is still well furnished and very spacious and comfortable.. The positives about this room are the amenities and that it has... More

We appreciate your comments. Each of our rooms is unique and has its own combination of attributes. The Victorian Apartment is large with a dining table and kitchenette. It is the only room that can accommodate more than 2 guests if desired. Also, children under age 10 can stay in the Victorian Apartment since sound is not an issue. The... More

The room was clean and nicely decorated. The breakfast was well prepared. However, the room was cold and the street noise resulted in a sleepless night. We were aware from the website that our room was on the corner and the Inn is in a city. At checkout the Inn keeper asked about our stay, his tone changed compley when... More

I was of course distressed to hear about the guest's problem sleeping. The room descriptions on our website describe the sound characteristics of each room. Most guests do not notice the street sounds even in the rooms facing the busier street; however, we are in a city and some guests are used to living in the relative silence of the... More

We enjoyed everything about this bed and breakfast. The location is convenient to downtown Portland, there are lots of good restaurants within walking distance, and the owners were extremely helpful in giving us directions, etc. I would definitely stay there again.

We appreciate your comment. We have a great location with many cafes, restaurants, shops and movie theaters within walking distance. A MAX light rail stop is a 12 minute walk and we are the "gateway" to the Irvington Historic Districts -- the largest National Historic District in Oregon. More

We elected to stay in the Irvington section on the East side of Portland at The Lion & The Rose. It turned out to be the best choice possible for our first visit to Portland. The Innkeepers and staff treated us like family and were more than helpful. The room accommodations were excellent. While the downstairs furnishings were a bit... More

The Lion and The Rose is a lovely Victorian home in the Irvington Historic District in Northeast Portland. Best of all, the helpful innkeepers, Steve and Dusty, and their staff have lots of information about what to see and do the city, and good local restaurant suggestions. Kerrie the inn's manager is clearly proud of her adopted city, willing to... More
