To be honest, I prefer staying downtown. Portland is a great city to walk around and from here you either have to take the streetcar or a not inexpensive cab ride. But a colleague arranged for me to stay here, and the hotel itself is very nice. I'd have given it a 5 if I'd had a river view room, but I didn't, and the room I had looked out over an industrial area, which meant that zi couldn't sleep with the curtains open because of the ambient light.
That being said, the hotel staff was very friendy and responsive, especially when zi needed to get to the airport at 4 in the morning and the cab I'd arranged never showed.
