This Crowne Plaza is a "hidden" gem near the Portland Convention Center. My king room was extraordinarily comfortable with a refrigerator and microwave in every room. The pool is inviting, the business center helpful, and the in-hotel convenience store is convenient for snacks, milk for your coffee, and late-night ice cream. Wifi is free, but a bit slow. I didn't... More

I stayed here in early June, enjoyed it and slept well. It is easy to access the Light Rail, nearby restaurants and nearby bars. You can walk anywhere nearby and it is roughly 25 minutes from the airport. Recommended.

Whole heartedly recommend this hotel. It isn't in the downtown area, but the street car is a block away and runs often enough to make it really convenient. I've stayed at downtown hotels on previous visits, but I think I'll switch to this one. Bed are comfortable, rooms are clean and quiet. Can't comment on the food because we went... More

They gave away my prepaid room, even after being notified that our plane was cancelled and new flight was 12 hours later. After traveling 24 hours from the East Coast, all we wanted to do was get some rest and start our vacation. But when I called for a shuttle at 12:30 am, they put me on hold for almost... More

Please accept my sincere apology for not having a room available. On rare occasions a guaranteed room is not available for various reasons because of maintenance or someone not departing as promised. In such an occurrence we of course arrange for transportation and pay for a guest’s room elsewhere in accordance with our guarantee policy. I am glad that Meliza... More

I normally stay at this property when I visit Portland. This time they up graded me to the Presidential Suite which was roomy and nice, but the only draw back was the bathroom was not as clean as expected (hair in shower). Rooms on edge of build more quiet, elevators are in the middle of building.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights on a recent trip to see Rival Sons at the Roseland. We enjoyed the comfortable beds, quiet, clean and modern room, and the friendly staff. Parking was easy and it is close to downtown. We will stay here again.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights, and I actually wish I could have stayed longer. The room was enormous and well-appointed. There was a fridge and a microwave! The room was very clean and comfortable. However, what knocked this out of the park was the excellent hotel restaurant. I am still salivating about their cheeseburger soup! Whenever I... More

I was impressed by the quality of this hotel. It has a salt water pool, a Keurig coffee machine, a dvd player, and one of the most comfortable beds in which I have ever slept.
