My wife and I stayed here for a weekend. It was a birthday trip for her, which I noted in the reservation. The staff at the hotel were very nice in inquiring what I would like in the room as a gift and they came through with some very nice gifts. The bottle of Champagne wasn't needed, but the orange juice, apples, and chocolates were what we really wanted.
We were upgraded (at no cost) to a king suite from a queen room, which was very nice. They also honored our promotional rate which included the valet parking (normally $38 per night!). The valets were very quick about their jobs.
The room we got was very nice with a comfortable bed. It was getting toward summertime in Portland, so you need to make sure you close the drapes well or else you will get some very early sunlight. In a suite, you might want to keep a small light on (the mirrors have them) so you can find the bathroom in the dark.
We didn't travel with a pet, but there were plenty of dogs to see in the lobby.
One of the very nice touches was the complimentary coffee in the morning. You could either get hot Starbucks or you could get some excellent iced coffee from a local merchant. My wife was in heaven because they had iced decaf.
The location of the hotel is very convenient to walk to many restaurants, the art museum, Powell's Books, Pioneer Square. And if you want cheaper food, there are some great food trucks nearby.
Overall, we felt very welcome the whole time. The staff never made us feel like we were bothering them. They went out of their way to help us from checkin to checkout.
