The Crystal hotel is great bargain and a lot of fun. Definitely NOT a luxury hotel, but a unique property with a really cool basement pool, an intimate and funky bar with great live music, and home crafted brews. Among the great values is the Beer 101 Package for two that includes a flight of 6 home brewed varieties per... More

It's becoming a lot more expensive to find a good place to stay in Portland so I'm so relieved that the Crystal Hotel has almost everything I want in a hotel: good location, comfortable accommodations and reasonable price. If you're seeing a show at the Crystal Ballroom, this is the perfect place to stay as it's right across the street.... More

great prices on funky little rooms. comfy beds. shared 'european' bathrooms were very clean and roomy- one user at a time, making them more like any private hotel bathroom, only a bit more posh! GREAT location to walk to all kinds of fun stuff in the pearl and waterfront districts. wonderful soaking pool and tavern underground. definitely check it out!

We stayed here for a couple of nights in Portland. The price is awesome for a big city, however you'll have to pay for parking one way or another. The parking garage which was the cheaper option they told us it would be only $12 will actually charged a maximum of $14 depending the amount of time you park your... More

If you like character, location and value this is a great stopoff. And if you forgot something in your room the staff goes above and beyond to return the item. They go above and beyond to provide a great value. The light rail is convenient from the airport so no transportation issues. Recommend.

There is a time when not having a private bathroom can be an issue.However - not at the Crystal Hotel.No worries there. The soaking pool is divine . Our room was perfect .They think of all one can need . The staff - friendly and very welcoming . One block from Powells Books. Great location. Need I say more ?

Thank you so much for this review... I can't wait to share these comments with the staff, they need public validation sometime. Of course, we think our property is super cool, and different, but when we hear it from our guest, it has special meaning. The meaning of someone noticing. Thank you! When you come back, we'll be even better. More
