Recently returned from a weekend trip to Portland. Stayed at this property as the host hotel for a friend's wedding and because of elite status in the Starwood system.
Had a few hiccups, but overall an excellent property that was incredibly convenient to anyplace we'd want to go in the area. First, the challenges. Most centered around transportation. We specifically didn't rent a car because we understood the Westin offered a hotel shuttle service, which they do. Fair warning though that it can be a bit spotty and is not on a regular loop. Upon arriving at the airport and calling the hotel to discern the shuttle situation, I was informed it would be about 20-30 minutes before they'd be able to send a someone to pick me up. I ultimately just grabbed a cab from the airport to the hotel. On the return to the airport on Sunday, my wife and I had two distinct experiences. I had not scheduled an early morning ride (I had a 6:15am flight) so anticipated I'd just grab a cab to airport, but the hotel driver didn't have any conflicting appointments, so we immediately jumped in his car for the quick 15 minute drive to airport. The flip side, my wife who was on a mid-morning flight and had reserved a ride at the front desk, went downstairs a few minutes before the agreed upon time only to see the car pulling away without her. The desk agent chased the car down and she proceeded to the airport. Again, just a few logistical kinks to work out.
The stay, staff and accommodations were great. My Starwood status was recognized and I was pleasantly surprised on a late May/early June weekend, was able to get a nice harbor-view room upgrade. Room spacious. Customary awesome bed. Great shower and amenities.
Would not hesitate to stay here again.
