We stayed at the Kimpton Grand Hotel in Minneapolis several months ago and loved it. We were going to Portland, so we decided to try the Kimpton in Portland. We loved it. We choose a top floor, corner room because it had HUGE skylight windows on the outside corner walls. This was the coolest hotel room we have ever stayed in.
The staff was awesome, too. Everyone had a smile and a kind word. This great attitude carried over to the restaurant and the cafe.
They are doing something right. I fully believe the framed magazine articles in the elevator showing the Vintage Plaza is the #1 rated hotel to work at in Portland. The staff is happy and therefore the guests are happy.
