I stayed here going to a show at the Keller Auditorium. The hotel was in very short walking distance to the theater as well as the to the Portland street car, and the max. It is a prime location for seeing a lot of the city. The features you get in the room and the building are plentiful. 24 desk,... More

Stayed there this weekend with my wife and sure it is not the Ritz, the rooms aren't big and elegant but they are pretty damn good for the price and the location is excellent as it is just off the freeway, and close to PSU, Keller and Downtown.......plus they hand out excellent Chocolate Chip Cookies when you check in!

We were going to a play at the Keller Auditorium and this hotel is just two blocks away. The parking was cheaper than most downtown hotels and we did not have to drive while we were there. It is also right in the mix with Portland State University. The service was great. The breakfast was good. The wifi is a... More

This was my 3rd stay at this hotel in the last four years. Comfort in the familiar, I suppose. This time around, I can't say I was as charmed or satisfied as I was in years previous. I've read (and seen pictures on the hotel website) that some rooms have been upgraded, and perhaps these are a different story from... More

The kids loved the pool, so we hung out there half the day. Breakfast line was long due to the visiting dragon boat crews. Front desk staff super friendly. One room was overheated. Once the streetcar track is opened, it will be very convenient to get around on transit. We will come again

The property has a great location to attend a seminar at PSU, the area is quiet, safe and peaceful but there's a problem related with connectivity. There's no WiFi in the rooms and your only option is at the lobby to catch, if you're lucky, the PSU WiFi. The property is in general outdated and no family friendly.

The location was perfect for me as I was attending a conference at the university. It is also conveniently close to the center of town. Apart from that, it's pretty bad. My room looked like it had not been updated since the 70s. Gum stuck on the carpet, polyester bedspread, very old-fashioned bathroom, no wi-fi. I would not go back.

We were visiting our friends from Portland state university. So this was the only place which seemed closest and neat ONLINE. So we booked a deluxe double bed room. When we reach the hotel, they give us such a small room with no wifi instead we had to pull out some cable wire to get wifi. It was so terrible... More

The best thing about this hotel was its location - just to the south of downtown Portland. Breakfast fayre was also pretty good. But I have three significant negatives to report about our third floor room:- 1) The door was not draught-proof and so the room became very chilly. In the morning you could see daylight creeping in all around... More
