The 1st one was in a country setting and this one is in the city. Same aspects just the furniture and size of the rooms differ. Staff were all complimentary and courteous.
The hotel is close to all public transit and Zipcars are parked at the corner of SW Oak and 5th
One can easily get on and off the TriMet MAX Light Rail and buses within 1-2 blocks. What a way to go.
It took us 35 minutes on the Red and Green MAX lines to get to the hotel. Best way to city the city by taking public transit.
We easily took the bus to the North Williams District. The street signs were difficult to see from the bus but we have a fantastic dinner at the Lincoln Restaurant, which Andrew Zimmern said was one of his top picks.
There are great restaurants within walking distance from the hotel. We ventured into the Pearl District. Definitely walk to the food carts for lunch or a snack. Try the reindeer sausage at one the carts.
What I enjoyed about the room:
Picturesque mural behind the beds.
The bed and pillows were semi firm – just the way I like it!
AC fan was quiet.
The curtains were difficult to open and close due to the rod tension.
The AC outlets located on the desk lamp did not work – possibly not aligned properly.
The bathroom sink counter curves out where the sink is located at, due to a divider wall for the toilet. Bit inconvenient “pour le petite femme”.
