We stayed here for 3 nights in June - and were thoroughly impressed. We had one of the corner rooms on the top floor (worth the extra $) and could open two sets of doors to mini balconies to really make the room fantastic. The staff was helpful in storing our luggage (as we got to Portland 5 hours before we could check in), The restaurant downstairs has awesome breakfast, the location is fantastic, the room was unique and comfortable, and the pool was a great addition. During the week - we were the only people in the pool. So relaxing!
You can take alcohol to the pool but it has to be in a plastic container - the bar will provide if needed- or grab a cup and some beer from World Market next door.
