This is a very hotel in downtown Portland. I loved my stay. The rooms were very pretty and the tea was delicious. I actually asked for extra tea, which was given right away. In particular, I liked the Speakeasy bar and Ben Hur photo outside of my room. The Internet is free if you become a member of this hotel's rewards group, which is easy and does not cost anything. The Aveda products were also wonderful. I will definitely try to stay here again when I come back. Wonderful staff, too. Great happy hour prices.
Here are a few things to consider:
- I'm from NYC, so I'm not bothered by a small room. It had quite a European feel. This may not be the case for everyone, though.
- Also being from NYC, a 5-10 min walk to museums did not bother me at all. Portland is very pretty and walkable. It's a good way to see things anyway. The hotel is also close to the rail and bus stops.
- I booked on Priceline for a very good rate. The weekend I stayed, rack rates for this hotel were about $50 cheaper than comparable hotels.
