The Vintage is in a great location in the heart of downtown Portland. The famous food-cart park (must be 70 or more) is two blocks away, and dozens of restaurants are within a 15 minute walk. Service was outstanding, among the best I have experienced. Through a misunderstanding with a colleague, I was only booked for 2 nights instead of 3. And, the room assigned to me faced the street, which is the kiss of death for a light sleeper such as myself. Brian worked some magic to get me the third night and a quiet room...and the room was VERY quiet, and clean. I discovered to my delight it was a suite, with comfortable furnishings. Kudos to this property for allowing the guest to waive having the room serviced. I much prefer to arrange things for myself on a short stay and not have to rearrange them every evening. And, who really needs clean sheets and towels every night?
Here's what prevented me from rating this 5 Stars overall:
- a musty smell in the hall and room
- in this huge suite, no easily accessible outlets on the walls, including behind the desk - and none in the lamps.
-a tiny, dingy shower stall in need of replacement - in a huge bathroom that could accommodate a great shower in addition to the existing jaccuzi tub
- no digital cable channels
-no coffee machine. Ok, it's Portland, a town full of coffee shops - but I was up at 5am with no caffine :(
This is a very good hotel that would be 5+ Stars with some tweaks.
