This is the second time I have stayed at the Mark Spencer. Both times the stays have been excellent. perfectly located for anyone that does not have a car or in our case trapped in the city due to the snow storm.

The Mark Spencer was very nice. I had a front facing room - which I highly recommend, so I had a nice view and good light int he room. The room was spacious - much bigger than most hotel rooms, and very clean. The bed was very comfortable, and overall the room was great. Close into shopping and restaurants.

We were in Portland to visit family, and a winter storm forced us to stay in a hotel. Our suite was comfortable, the location is ideal, and the staff were unfailingly helpful. We had to extend our stay twice, and they made it very easy.

The #staylikealocal Package made for an economical day away from home for us. We paid extra for the garage parking, but we thought that this was worthwhile and gave us extra peace of mind during our stay.

We stayed during an ice storm and needed to delay our check out. The staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Beds very comfortable, lovely clean bathroom and shower, excellent towels, spacious room. Huge TV that swings out of the way against the wall. Well supplied kitchenette. What's not to love? Great location too! Don't stay anywhere else.
