While it seemed to be a newer property, the rooms are terribly small for a Residence Inn. I have stayed at many of them, and these rooms were clearly smaller. The staff was so-so. Not rude, but not friendly either. Just ho-hum. From the looks of the layout, it appears that many of the rooms do not have a good view. The parking garage next door was fine for good weather. Which is how often in Portland? I would think they would have a bridge to it on the second floor, being in a downtown location in a wintery place. Nice indoor pool and extra large exercise room. While the hotel was not in the main area for dinner and shopping, it was a good thing to not be in the midst of the chaos. The walk to dinner and shopping area in downtown was very reasonable, and I do not walk much.
