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

First, this is part of a chain of alternative hotels. They are known for taking old buildings and retro fitting them to make them interesting. This one is no exception. I don't usually stay at places in the USA with a shared bathroom down the hall, but theirs were numerous and very clean. With a sink and mirror in the... More

This hotel is in a great location in the Pearl District, close to shops, Wholefoods, little bars and pubs. The little venues associated with the hotel are great and the Zues Cafe has yummy breakfast! The hotel itself is pretty cool and the room themes are interesting. What i really loved about this hotel was the little basement heated pool.... More

Hello, and thank you for your review, and alerting me to our WIFI issue... I didn't know service was bad on higher floors. There are servers all over this building. I'll have someone look into the WIFI. None the less, I too love that soaking pool... and I'm grateful to hear about the staff. I'll have to let them know.... More

It all depends what your expectations are before booking this hotel. If you are looking for a luxurious, quiet, full of amenities hotel; this hotel is not for you. If you book knowing that basically it is a place to lay your head in a quirky, well priced, conveniently located hotel with high street and construction noise; this hotel is... More
