I stayed here on a business trip in early November and my wife joined me for the weekend. This was a fantastic hotel with incredible staff.
This is really a boutique hotel rather than the larger Westins I'm used to. For me, this is a real plus. You get to know the staff in a hotel like this, and they were wonderful here. Everyone I interacted with was on-point, a rarity in hotels these days. The valets, doormen, front desk agents, pbx (operator), and room service attendant were all friendly, personable, and seemed genuinely committed to ensuring I had a great stay.
The location was also a huge plus. It's right in the middle of downtown Portland and there are many great dining and entertainment options within easy walking distance. Prepare to valet if you drive (valet is $29/night), but the valets were always on time and very helpful with directions, luggage, etc. They made it very easy to get going to see my client each morning I was there and were very welcoming when I returned for the night.
Finally, the onsite restaurant is a Daily Grill. Yum! I love Daily Grills and it was nice to be able to order their food via room service. Their breakfast was also very good.
No place is perfect, right? The rooms were a bit small, though this wasn't a major drawback. They are also in need of renovation with somewhat dated decor (the television was a Zenith!!), but the property is still in great shape and none of the furniture or decor looked excessively worn or tired. The location, boutique-hotel feel, and outstanding staff more than make up for these small nits.
I've stayed in a few hotels in Portland and this is by far my favorite. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to enjoy the feeling of being in downtown Portland combined with having a "home away from home".
