The Nines is not just a wonderful Starwood property, but a great hotel in Portland, if not the best. Portland, which doesn't lack for great boutique hotels (Ace, Jupiter, DeLuxe, et al) has the great fortunate of a wonderful hotel that is in keeping with the city's cool factor, without being ostentatious. The hotel, which sits above Macy’s in Pioneer Center, is a great location. There are two types of rooms: those with views of the city, and those with inside views of the atrium. My room had a view of the atrium, which was disappointing, but luck of the draw, I suppose.
The rooms aver very comfortable. Wonderful beds, with minimal bedding – there was only a down comforter and sheet. There was a bar, a valet, and a unique TV credenza. The bathroom was small, but nice, with marble backings and some nice water-saving features (a nod to Portland, no doubt). Free Wifi was an unexpected treat as well. The room was very clean, everything worked, and I didn’t have to ask for any additional items or changes. Well done. The staff was friendly and attentive, from check in to the valet.
Valet parking is expensive, and as I later found out, not entirely necessary if you don’t require in and out service. The parking garage is on Alder street, shared with the Westin, and you can self park for $18 overnight. We waited up to 40 minutes for the valet on two occasions, most likely because of the weekend crowds, and the block and a half the valets had to cover in that time.
Overall, it’s a very comfortable hotel, perfect for a special outing like a romantic retreat or special vacation.
