We stayed here for 2 nights from 6/24 - 6/26 with 3 children (ages 1, 3, and 10). We chose this hotel because it was an all-suite hotel for the same price as other chains wanted for a double bed/king room. The hotel is very well-maintained and the staff went out of their way to interact with guests. The rooms...

Found the location of this hotel to be perfect. Its placement is very walkable to many of the city highlights. It was tucked away from the major streets which made it super quiet. The pool and hot tub was perfect! The staff was more than helpful, cheerful and accommodating whether it be a recommendation or a smile. Rooms were great...

Excellent hotel. The staff is friendly, incredibly helpful and personable. My two Huskies love the attention, and the front desk would continue to give me pick up bags so we could do our part to keep Portland clean. In fact, with the hotel being a little off Commercial Street (which can get very noisy), a short hop to Duckfat, Ribollita,...
