I chose this hotel because if its location, right in the heart of Portland. It's an old hotel that has been beautifully renovated. They have free wine in the lobby between 5-6p, and the hotel staff could not have been more helpful. They helped us with a hard to get extra night at the Vintage Park in Seattle for the great internet rate we already had. They have underground parking but if you are not planning on using your car they suggested another garage across the street at half the price. We would definitely stay there again.
