“Why stay anywhere else?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

This boutique hotel is ideally located on the main downtown drag, so there is easy walking to almost everything in Portland. The lobby and our room were nicely decorated. The bedding was very comfortable. The staff was friendly and accommodating, but particularly the valet service, which fetched some forgotten items in our car for us. A complimentary wine tasting was offered every evening. Actually, we are fans of the Kimpton Hotels and their In-Touch Global Business Plan program, which provided additional benefits useful to us. So if we’re ever in Portland again, this will definitely be our base of operations.

My husband and I just returned from our first trip to portland. The hotel is located in a historic building which has been updated to include the modern amenities. It is located right in the center of downtown which is convenient for touring the city. The vintage plaza offers exceptional service and extremely friendly staff. We loved th daily happy hour from 5pm-6pm. All of the staff were excited to help us each day. We had an interior spa room, so we did not have any windows. However, we had a huge skylight , and a huge jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. Although it was a bit different not having windows, it was a nice change and provided a cozy intimate feel. We loved this hotel and would recommend it to anyone looking for a hotel in Portland.

For our first trip to Portland we thought that it might be nice to stay downtown, as opposed to near the airport. The Vintage Plaza was the ideal location as a base to see the sights of Portland.

We found the hotel to be very clean and and the room was great! We were upgraded to a larger King room, which was very much appreciated. As previous reviewers have mentioned, the hotel is an older building, but has been updated, so it has the old world charm and modern niceties. Our room was located in the front of the building and we were surprised that the location was as quiet as it was.

Our dog was welcomed with his own amenities--bowls, treats and a toy!

We seemed to miss the wine tastings on both nights of our stay, dashing in on the last night to find it just winding up. One of the valet staff noticed us, told us that the tasting was just finished and gave us a bottle of wine to enjoy in our room. Wow! Nice touch.

We found the staff to be totally pleasant, friendly and helpful, with the exception of one of the front desk clerks (perhaps he was having a bad day, twice.....).

We really did enjoy our stay at this hotel and would definitely book again if we return to Portland.

(Hint: Self parking, in the parking structure across the road, was $17 maximum for 24 hours. As long as you don't need in/out parking, this is a good option.)

I'd stayed in 6 hotels in the past month, and Vintage Plaza had the friendliest service of all. The hotel is starting to show its age just a bit but the rooms are still in great condition and large. Bed was extremely comfortable - loved it so much I'd meant to ask the staff what kind of mattress it was, so I could look into getting one myself :) Free wine hour was another nice perk. Staff was very helpful in providing directions, suggestions for dining, etc. I will definitely return next time I'm in Portland.

A very nice place to stay when in Portland.
This was not our first time here. We have stayed at a number of downtown Portland hotels, and I think that the Vintage is one of the best, if not the best. The staff makes you feel welcome. It is in a great location. Rooms in this classic hotel -- built in 1894-- are nicely updated. Really, I can not find anything at all to fault about this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces out, rather than in towards the large, central air-shaft. (OK, not really...

Vintage Plaza is an example of hotel that makes you feel as if you're visiting their home. We were 8 couples in town for a wedding, and the staff and management made it very special for us.
We had a suite in order to do some "entertaining" in the late evenings. The hotel provided everything we needed to host our friends.
Everyone spoke highly of their accomodations, and we all had more than one meal at Pazzo which was just terrific. Whether breakfast, lunch or dinner, meals were very good.
No challenge was too great for the staff, all of which is why we will ALWAYS stay at the Kimpton property.

I've stayed at Vintage Plaza many times and always enjoy it. Location is great, decor is comfortable, the restaurant (Pazzo) is very good. We had a king bed with sofa room. This is my favorite kind of room there, very comfortable. We've tried some of the specialty rooms like the Starlight and the Garden/hot tub ones but so far this is the best. The regional wine hour is a great plus! I think what really makes it special is the staff, though. Very friendly, especially the valet staff (yay Antwan).

Room Tip: King bed with sofa rooms are most comfortable. Starlight rooms have a weird "whispering gallery...
