Check in process was smooth. We had 4 gift cards of varying amounts and she didn't flinch and ran them all thru and then gave us a print out to show they have all been redeemed. The 2 nights ended up costing us less than $25 with the gift cards we had. And we were able to get directions to where we needed no issue.
There was ample parking. And it was just short walk to the MAX station which got us quickly into downtown and to the Rose Garden. And we did enjoy the hot tub 1 night.
The issues are that we when arrived there was a conversation going on at the front desk with 2 other employees that should have been not in a customer area. It was a bit loud and distracting and they were talking about other employees, in some detail. Painting was going on in the lobby when we arrived which was during a busy time right at check in time for most.
Also, breakfast was a bit of a disappointment. The breakfast room was completely packed at 8 am and the food supply was quite low. We grabbed a few things and then brought it back to the room. Then we went down at just before they closed and found some yogurt and a banana. Day 2 we didn't bother with breakfast, but when we checked out (after breakfast ended) the room was still pretty full.
Also, this hotel seems pretty dated in the hallways. The carpeting doesn't really match as you walk down the hall. The bedroom area looks like it was recently updated but the bathrooms were out of the 80's. Although the bathroom had been painted an orangish color, the paint had gotten on the outlets and elsewhere, so it wasn't done well.
It’s not in an area of Portland I normally stay, so I would really only stay here, if I needed to be in this specific area again.
