This is our second time staying at the Nines, in Portland. We have stayed both times on the club level, which is well worth the extra cost. The service, the food, the drinks and the atmosphere in the club lounge are unparalleled. It offers guests an alternative place to relax and enjoy their time away. We especially enjoyed the small bites and cocktails prior to heading out for our dinner reservation.
Our room, this time, felt slightly upgraded from our last room (which was also beautiful). We had reserved a king bed, city view room and we were given a very large room on the quieter side of the hotel, which had some nice expansive views facing toward the river and the bridges. The room featured much more floor space, dark hardwood floors, a larger closet, and bigger bathroom. Needless to say, we were thrilled with this room. It was quiet, dark at night and had a very comfortable bed. We slept great, which isn't always a given on the first night in a hotel.
All of the service, from the front desk staff (Stevie, at check-in) to the concierge, attendants in the lounge, valet and the baggage handlers, where incredibly friendly and efficient. We never waited long for anything and everyone was glad to help.
As we left, the valet said "please come back and stay with us again!", and I quickly replied, "we most definitely will!". And, we will.
