So, yeah, I've stayed at other Pineapple properties over the course of many years and this property fits with their business model. Take an older, established property, give it a solid cosmetic update and significant modernization in some areas, then follow through with your branding scheme, and you have a Pineapple Group hotel. The good news: The room was exceptionally clean, typical for the Pineapple Group. They excel at property cleanliness and public space maintenance. We were very comfortable staying there the two nights over the 4th of July weekend. Everything worked in the room, and I was especially impressed with the fast, no-nonsense, Wi-Fi and the option to cast video from my iPad or iPhone to the in-room TV. I also like a hotel that provides in-room coffee with a Keurig over some tiny coffee pot. And the mini-fridge in the room actually worked properly and housekeeping had left some coffee creamers in the fridge. A nice touch. The bathroom was pretty typical Pineapple. What started life as an unimpressive tub/shower combo has been transformed into a tile stand up shower with no door and a glass partition. Newer toilet and vanity fittings, solid surface countertops and materials were also in this generally well appointed bathroom. Hope you are super comfortable with your travel companions and nobody has to use the bathroom at the same time to get ready because the open shower, with the glass partition leaves no flexibility for somebody to shower behind an opaque curtain while somebody else uses the facilities. While not a peek-a-boo bathroom like some hotels have started offering, you know, those bathrooms which have glass walls, a double queen room shared by almost strangers at the Hotel Rose might not be all that comfortable an experience for the occupants. The bathroom was exceptionally clean, you could tell that it has been used pretty hard. The faucet on the vanity would not completly turn off unless you gave the handle of the faucet a very firm downward press. Normal usage of the faucet would leave a little trickle running in almost all usage scenarios. The shower head at one time was supposed to be a rain shower, as it was up high and centered on roughly where you would stand to take a shower, however, most of the nozzles on the shower head were clogged with minerals or had been pushed back into the shower head. So, instead of a nice rainshower experience, you had a low flow drizzle of water with which to get wet down and then attempt to rinse off. I have a better shower head in my RV, and RV showers aren't known for their great water pressure or enveloping spray. Light switches for the bathroom are on an outside wall as you enter the room. I'm just not fond of that. Beds and bedding were very comfortable. The large duvets and pillows are a welcome change from the horrible bedding you get at nearly all other hotels. Biggest problem was that the beds were narrower than queens, I swear they were actually doubles, not queens. So, two individual duvets were squished onto one narrow bed. I'm glad I like the person I sleep next to, because this stay was super cozy on account of the narrow bed and excess of duvet. The room's wheezy A/C didn't help either. The thermostat in the room was down all the way to 40F when we walked in the door and the room was being cooled, but not very well, and we couldn't get it to be cooler. The in-room thermostat looked like something that came out of the 70s, and nothing we did with it had any impact on A/C, so I suspect that the thermostat is some kind of hotel kabuki theater to try to convince guests they have control over their room temp, even though they are just getting whatever the roof units put out. So, a good stay, yes. A clean room, yes. Lots of engineering or maintenance issue, regrettably, yes. Even though this property has been reformulated to reflect the Staypineapple brand and philosophy, I think a few too many years have elapsed from when they made the hotel into the Hotel Rose and now without an in depth remodel. I'd stay here again, but I hope it is after they have gone through the property and given it another modernization.…
This was the 3rd Stay Pineapple Hotel I’ve stayed in and while not my favorite was still clean and comfortable— and, of course, dog friendly. The room was not as big or as nice as others I’ve stayed in with this brand. We also looked out on the highway on ramp. However, we did have a patio and the staff was great.
The staff at the Hotel Rose were very helpful and accommodating. The front desk staff at the front desk especially Kennedy was a great guy who made us feel at home and Isabel provided information about things to do around and recommended food places. The rooms were clean and nice.
We stayed one night just to spend one day visiting Portland after the pandemic. The location is great, close to restaurants, stores, etc. The room was nice, clean and comfortable with pineapple decorations that make the ambiance somewhat tropical. The people at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. Kennedy was able to give us directions to the places we wanted to visit. We spent the day walking around downtown. We are definitely coming back for our next visit.
Had a great stay and really enjoyed being so close to the river. We’ll definitely be back. The bed was super comfortable and the staff was friendly and very helpful. Our next visit will be longer so we have a chance to take in more of the city.
