I was traveling on a 15 day bus tour that started in San Diego and ended in Seattle, so this was nearing the end of our trip.
The hotel was one of the best I stayed at during the trip (sorry but top honors have to go to the Marriott Marquis in SF). It looks like the hotel was recently renovated, the rooms and decor were spotless. I was on the 6th floor, view wasn't that great but didn't matter to me. The beds were a little higher than normal but so comfortable (I wish we could have stayed here more than one night). The room also had fridge, microwave and Keurig coffee station. The bathroom was immaculate as well, wish I had this bathroom in my townhouse.
We received a coupon for a free breakfast and it was well worth it. This was probably the best breakfast buffet experience for me during the trip. They had an array of breakfast foods to choose from and everything tasted great. I just wish we had more time to stay in Portland, only got to visit the "Rose Gardens" and drive thru the city and sightsee from the bus.
I found a Denny's to eat that was within walking distance from the hotel (also saw a "Red Robin" but decided to stick with Denny's $6-$8 value meals). I went with a couple people from our tour and afterwards we walked over to Lloyd's Mall and killed some time before we returned back to the hotel to turn in for the night.
I would like to come back to Portland in the future and I would stay at this hotel again!
