My first trip to Portland allowed me to stay at The Nines and I was not disappointed. There for a business meeting, the staff was very helpful, polite and accomodating in every way. The meals at the hotel were delicious as was the meeting support. The Nines is located perfectly in downtown Portland; easy for a runner to put in comfortable 3-10 mile runs in the vicinity of the hotel, close to great restaurants and walking distance to all the well-known beer tap houses. Portland is a great downtown area to visit and staying at The Nines makes it even better.
