So we travel a good amount, mostly for pleasure and recently found ourselves in Seattle and Portland. We needed a place for a 1 night stay in Portland and came to TripAdvisor.com to read up on options. Almost all of the reviews of this place have been very positive and I will add to that good vibe.
This hotel is located just a short jaunt from the airport, but not too far from downtown Portland if you have a car.
Check in: Easy, friendly, quick. Things I noticed upon check in. A large collection of DVDs behind the counter for borrowing. Wow. Nice touch if you are traveling with small children and are in need of a new movie. The commissary is a nice touch as well. A 24 hour small mini story where you can get drinks, food, toiletries, coffee, etc.... something I had not seen before and liked a lot.
Room: One word -- HUGE. We had the one bedroom king room. The kitchenette was lovely with a big refrigerator, small stove, microwave (complete with popcorn inside), dishwasher and a large conference table that separated the kitchenette from the living room. Living room had a standard sofa and nice sitting chair and a flat screen (42 inch?). The bedroom had a king bed, another flat screen and the pillows... oh my the comfy pillows!!! We were still a little jet lagged from the east coast but the sleep was oh so good. Bathroom was pretty standard, clean and again the towels matched the pillows in softness and high quality.
Other things we noticed. Complimentary washer and dryer room. Yes indeed free laundry. The "fitness center" left much to be desired, but was no different than most hotel fitness rooms. They had 1 recumbent bike, 1 elliptical, 2 treadmills and a nautilus machine. The heat was on way too much in there and I had to cut my workout short, but some of that was my own issue. Clean ---- oh my is this place clean!!!! Enough said there.
The neighborhood is full of hotels and there is a 24 hour restaurant near by if needed.
I do not know the next time I will be in Portland, but if I am again I will stay here. Really nice job. The staff we encountered were very friendly and professional. Thanks
