Stayed here with some friends and was pleasantly surprised. Updated, though fairly generic furnishings, comfortable bed, great location, quick efficient check in. There's an attached restaurant with tasty blood Mary's and good breakfast.

Lovely accommodations, cozy beds (like sleeping on a cloud!!), excellent service - everyone was wearing a smile. The restaurant adjoining the hotel is open at convenient hours and serves wonderful food. You can't lose!

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel, the restaurant inside (I never ate at ) but looked great! The staff makes this hotel! This one gentlemen who is a valet, was very helpful and went the extra mile. Great stay for the price! Seems like a hip property , I recommend it.

Not my first choice in Portland, but it turned out to be a good decision. Centrally located in the city, you have access to many points of interest in Portland. I asked for a higher floor and got the 15th. Thank you! Far away from the street noise, I had the best sleep ever in the city. They have friendly... More

The staff was nice and professional, and the rooms were nice and spacious. The bathroom had a single sink, water pressure on the 15th floor was decent, although not great, and they only provided shampoo, conditioner, lotion and soap. There was no shower cap, mouthwash, etc. There was plenty of closet space and the TV was large although we had... More

It is located in a conviniet location. Price/quality is good. Room was clean enough, staff was friendly but not annoying. If you are looking for a good bed for resonable price, this place is for you. Other than that it is unremarkable place.

This is a good alternative to the $300/night 4 star places in the downtown area of Portland. We happened to be there on a Saturday night and Valentines Day, so finding a deal and a place to eat was not going to be easy. CBM Portland City Center came through in the clutch. The staff was friendly, very helpful and... More

Just to be perfectly clear / out of the way - this is not a bad hotel by any stretch. It is simply not exciting in any other way. We stayed overnight because we needed a centric location to take care of some business in Portland. The staff was courteous and efficient, and check in was smooth. The rooms are... More

I am an elderly 60+ Disabled American Veteran traveling with my young 33 married Thai partner. We have been together for over 5 years. My partner looks younger then his age.
