My wife and I recently traveled to this hotel to explore the city of Portland and visit some friends who live locally. We had a great time. The hotel is located close to almost everything downtown. We walked to stores, restaurants and coffee. We booked a room on the executive level with a city view - the executive lounge was always well stocked and very comfortable - the city view was limited but better than an interior courtyard view. The interior courtyard seems to get noisy at night and might bother guests on lower levels. The service at the hotel was great, the valet quick, front desk friendly and cleaning staff were attentive to all of the details.
