Recently stayed at this hotel and as usual the stay was great. Everything is within walking distance.If you need to go further than walking, the trams are very close. A great place to stay for everything.

i stayed at the hotel during Rose parade this year. The front desk staff were very efficient and friendly. It was very conveniently located close to all downtown attractions. The rooms are decent but nothing spectacular. It was so nice to have a restaurant downstairs for a late evening meal if needed

This was a great hotel! The rooms were very spacious and the staff was extra helpful and friendly. The location was perfect. We were pretty close to everywhere we wanted to visit and were able to walk most places. There is no breakfast included and parking was $35/night. We were spoiled at the hotel we had just come from with... More

I stayed in this hotel for a week for business. Conveniently located in the city center, close by the river, 2 minutes away from the big downtown shopping streets and close by the Pearl. The room in itself is quite simple, the rooms are convenient, spacious and the bathroom serves its needs not more. TV options are limited to standard... More

This is a very reasonable hotel. It is quiet, clean and efficient, and the staff are very friendly. The main problem is the parking - there is none. On arrival, you have to park in the main street and empty the car, and then a valet will park the car (for $35 a day).The room itself was fine, and as... More

Thank you for writing a review for our team. We appreciate any chance we have to improve on our service. Our overnight parking charge of $35 includes valet service and parking in our secured garage. Our charge is lower than most downtown hotels within our area. I hope you get another chance to stay on our property. Best Regards, Lindsey... More

I travel up to Portland from the Bay Area every couple of months. This is my favorite spot. The rooms are clean, the staff is always great, and the location is perfect for downtown Portland. The fitness center is well above average for this type of hotel as well.

This hotel was in a great location - next to the waterfront running trail, downtown events, Powells, etc. We went on a family trip for several days. The hotel is nice and the staff is friendly and helpful. There is a nice restaurant. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here while in the city on business, very attentive staff and nice facility. The workout room is well equipped, and all of the equipment was in working order. Rooms were updated and clean, and surprisingly quiet given the city center location. Staff went out of the way to make sure I was comfortable. Would highly recommend this hotel, and... More
