“OK if you like crowds”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Lots of kids running in the hallway, Pool was full of unsupervised children, receptionist would not make eye contact, no warm cookies like at other locations, very crowded breakfast room with broken waffle batter machine and out of other food items (due to crowds). Beds were comfortable, but the remote to the TV was broken. Overall, I thought it was overpriced for the atmosphere.

The carpet was soaked and the room had a horrible stench. Garbage from previous guests was still on the floor. The staff was unwilling to do anything to anything to offset the experience. All they could say is that they were sorry. I have stayed in backwater Hotels in Southern Brazil that smelled better.

Dear Guest,

We appreciate your loyalty to the Best Western brand and your Platinum status.

As can be seen from all other positive reviews on Trip Advisor & otherwise, this is not how we operate & serve the needs of our valued guests. Best Western Plus Northwind Inn & Suites prides itself in the service we extend to our guests & product we offer. Unfortunately, in your instance, we were not advised of all these issues upon check in which was earlier in the evening or else we would have immediately moved you to another room. Your reservation was upgraded to a spa suite in recognition of your Platinum status. We do inspect our rooms especially all our arrival rooms for the day. Despite all the proactive measures, there are times, where we may need to address the situation if the guests expectations are not met. However we have to know them first in a timely manner.

At check out, we have fewer options unless we were given the opportunity to correct the problem first hand. Regardless, we will be willing to accomodate you next time you are in the area and extend you a room with our compliments for this not so desirable stay you had with us.

Sincerely,


Prashant Gupta, CHA

The staff was knowledgeable and helpful. The housekeeping was wonderful! My room was clean and looked great every day. The breakfast was pretty good - I usually don't like hotel eggs, but these were tasty. Even my picky dad was satisfied!

Nice place to stay, good location, well kept facility. Rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast was standard. Comfortable bed. Pillows were way too thick and hard. No choices for size or density. All were the same size.

OK place to stay ...convenient ; stayed 2 nights
Breakfast was ok - nothing special , but the hot food was nasty.

However, Friday morning when we went down for breakfast at 8:30; the General Manager decides to have a staff meeting right there in the breakfast room... not very professional and we felt so bad for the staff .... this was very inapproprate especially when people ... and it was a full room... are trying to have a decent quiet breakfast
Not sure why he couldnt have his staff meeting in the meeting rooms or wait until the breakfast rush was over.... I think he needs more training in etiquette than the staff does...
The staff in the breakfast area were very nice to us and always making sure there was enough breakfast stuff available.

Also, as I was checking out, I specifically went to the front desk to check out and hand over the room keys... the girl was not that friendly .... and when I asked her for the receipt for the hotel stay ... she said it has been emailed to me ... well... im still waiting for the receipt ... and the reason why I asked for the receipt was sometimes they ask for it at the border for confirmation of our stay...

This is the same girl that checked us in on Thursday ... still not friendly; never mentioned to us about any of the amendities when checking in

The manager in the evening ... was the nicest person during our stay ... our TV was not working in the evening ... and when we called ... he came right away to see what the issue was ...and fixed the problem

Wouldnt recommend the hot tub ... was more like a luke warm tub ... and the sitting area in the tub was cement...OUCH!!!

It was an overall ok stay... first time at the Best Western ...
Would have preferred a 24hr spa area and the 2 hour appie hour that we normally get at another establishment ... but oh well...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for staying with us & your feedback.

As was apprised to you during our brief interaction in the breakfast room, we opted to conduct this informal meeting to observe & experience breakfast during the hour of operation. We were all taken by surprise when you intervened & expressed your immense displeasure as you left. Had you done that earlier, we most certianly would have left to not cause any displeasure even though we conducted ourselves in the most professional manner contrary to your assessment. Guests who were still there in the breakfast room expressed displeasure about your comments and opinion. They appreciated our intent & we were able to accomplish our objective that morning.

We always seek signatures on the guest folio's unless it is a pre-paid reservation. I will be happy to email the receipt if you could identify the last name associated with this stay. I have sent you another message through this portal.

Sorry, your first Best Western stay was not as pleasant, however I seek your return to serve you better next time.


Sincerely,


Prashant Gupta, CHA

we had very nice check in and support from front desk. breakfast is OK, nothing special. Unfortunately they ran out of Earl Grey tea and plain instant oatmeal during our 3 day stay over weekend, so no restocking. also there was a cloying, intense smell of room freshener in the 3rd floor hallway - sickening.
location is good for doing things around Portland and there is large Fred Meyer close by and other convenient stores and bowling!
nice sized pool for laps, but the hot tub surface is like sandpaper, don't use unless you want to scrap your skin/swimming suit. when kids in pool area, very loud. would recommend having adult only swim time. also, they don't open until 9 am, not convenient for those of use who like to exercise in the morning (away from kids)

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your stay at the BW Plus Northwind.

We value your business and feedback; we will be re-surfacing/grinding our seating bench in the spa very soon. Your feedback has most certainly placed this on my top list of things to do. As for the fragrance, we deploy the best company here in Portland to change our fragrances every month. Possibly, this just got changed out and was too intense for you. We often get compliments about how good the entire property smells in all public areas.

Looking forward to having you stay again when you are in this neighborhood.

Sincerely,

Prashant Gupta, CHA

We alway choose this hotel when we have to stay in Portland. The beds are very comfortable, the room is very clean, and they provide a full tasty breakfast. Their location is central to many of Portland locations frequented by business travelers.
