We stayed at the Residence Inn Portland Downtown/RiverPlace in early June as part of a family tour of Oregon.
While some hotels have limited space for the complimentary breakfast, this one had a generous and comfortable area for the sumptuous breakfast buffet. Many hot items, as well as make-your-own waffles, fresh fruit and a variety of teas, were available. The staff was friendly and helpful. Because we stayed on a weekend evening, the manager's reception was not offered; however, a weekly menu for the weeknight receptions was posted on the refrigerator door.
We requested a balcony for our studio king room, and were placed in a room with a balcony facing the city. The balcony, with two chairs, provided a view of construction below, but a comfortable area to sit outside.
While some Residence Inns are more updated, this one was quite acceptable, and close to local transit lines. We asked for and received a late checkout with no problem.
The king bed was very comfortable. The mini-kitchen provided everything we needed included a full-size refrigerator, in-room coffee maker and a bag of microwave popcorn.
One concern is the price of parking for hotel guests - $26 - which seems high, even for Portland. We chose off-premise street parking as an alternative. Portland Perks, a discount plan available on the Portland tourism site, provides a package which includes parking, although we did not use that discount.
