The best thing about the CP Convention Center has to be the staff. Nice job team - every request - forgotten toiletries, restaurant deliveries to hotel, local free shuttle or public transport directions, even suggestions on wines in the lounge - was answered enthusiastically. Very helpful group. The room was comfortable and I liked the mini-fridge, microwave and coffee maker... More

The staff was friendly, the hotel was clean and the room was just as nice as pictured on their website. You have to pay to park in the hotel's lot but there are a few metered spots directly in front of the main door if you get lucky. The hotel is very close to the tram/rail that takes you downtown...

We just recently returned from a 6 night stay at the Crowne Plaza. Everything was just lovely. The staff was always eager and willing to help and extremely pleasant. Our room was very nice and spotlessly clean. The location was perfect for us. I would suggest staying on the side of the hotel not facing the highway because of the... More

The hotel room was very updated, looked new. iPod docking station is not something you see that often in hotels. The hotel location, despite outside of the main downtown area, is not that far away (30min walking distance). BUT even better - the hotel provides a free shuttle to your destination downtown. It saved a lot of taxi fair! One... More

This hotel wasn't my first choice on the list but I'm surprised how clean and well maintained this 3 star hotel is. I like the fact that it's close to LLoyd centre mall. Restaurants, cafes and small shops are within walking distance. Public transportation is easy access. The room is very spacious (two queen size beds) and it's vert quiet.... More

We were very pleased - surprisingly so, in fact - with this large, business oriented hotel; The location was ok - not great - but the available public transportation more than made up for it.

We like to stay in the Convention Centre area when visiting Portland. It is easily accessible to the free light rail system and close to restaurants and shops. This was our first visit to this particular hotel and we were both pleased and disappointed. On the plus side, the hotel is extremely clean (as other reviewers have pointed out) and... More
