We stayed at this hotel as part of a club in town for a weekend soccer tournament, the first time we have stayed outside of downtown Portland. The location is about 12 miles south of downtown and ideal for visits to the Willamette Valley wineries, the Evergreen Air Museum & water park in McMinnville to the east, Woodburn shopping outlets to the south, and recreational and shopping facilities around Beaverton, Tigard and Wilsonville. However, I would not recommend the location if you plan to spend most of time downtown as Portland's congested freeway system can make even local commutes slow and frustrating (a couple of downtown trips took us upwards of 45 minutes). As for the hotel itself, we found no significant issues or concerns. The place is really clean (and I mean clean) and staff friendly and cooperative. Other reviewers have remarked about noise levels and we heard from fellow guests that the upper floor walls were somewhat thin. We stayed in a ground floor king room and our only noise issue was when toilets flushed, it sounded like Niagara Falls coming through our bathroom, Given this didn't occur 24/7 we found it more bizarre than upsetting. Our king size bed was amazingly comfortable, to the point where I wanted to take it home. A complimentary hot/cold breakfast was provided which was adequate but not outstanding, and there is no bar, lounge or restaurant in the hotel which means any socializing must be done in the rooms (not great given the noise issue mentioned earlier). There are many restaurants and shops in walking distance and loads of free parking with quick access to the I-5. A neighbouring Whole Foods Market store also has an amazing selection of Oregon craft beer and an on-staff expert (Ben) who will even help you navigate selections. I would certainly stay here again as long as our plan is to keep away from downtown.
