I wasn't receiving any telemarketing calls before I booked my stay there, but I started getting them the very next day, several different callers, 7 days a week, and no I didn't give my phone number to anyone else. I've got one blinking on the answering machine right this minute.
The accommodations weren't worth the high cost for a cheap apartment (& I mean college life apartment) decorated with decent looking but very cheap Ikea type products.
- Big TV: maybe 46 inch? It's close to the bed so looks plenty big.
- Continental Breakfast: I've seen better available, & I've seen worse. I'll be nice & call it a Pro since there was a decent variety of offerings (u-make waffles, simple scrambled eggs, cheap sausage patty, toast, a few cereals, coffee, a couple juices), but eating a waffle & eggs with plastic utensils sucked...waffle inevitably got cold while I struggled. You don't want to struggle with this junk 1st thing in the morning.
- Pillow was soft: I like this; however it was the smallest sleeping pillow I've ever seen, about 2/3 your average pillow. My head kept finding itself off of it.
- Bed: Generally very firm, but a soft surface, so more tolerable (if you like soft beds).
- Shower water pressure could have been worse.
- There were 2 luggage carts in the entrance.
- Towels: Did the job, but pretty thin & well worn. Quality didn't match the room price, but I've seen worse too.
- 2 bars of soap, 1 for shower/tub, 1 for sink.
- Our room had a mini-fridge, dresser, pull-out sleeper bed, chair, coffee maker, 1 coffee package of regular & decaf (1 coffee package made 2 cups?). I didn't try these things...the furniture looked Ikea-hard.
- Ice bucket with ice bag.
- Parking: The property/parking lot slopes downward quite a bit from south to north, from the entrance toward the back, so be advised if you need to do much walking from your parked car to the hotel; particularly not fun when using a luggage cart & having to hold it at your car while you load/unload. But at the entrance is a small 1/2-circle driveway where you can park & load/unload. Kinda convenient, but not in regards to having to go get your car & leave it there.
- In the morning, it looked like 90% of the people at the breakfast were there for business.
- Accommodations can be pretty hard to find in West Portland. I found this place to be at the lowest end (price & quality wise) of the category where you're NOT having to deal with people there strictly to party or the like. I paid around $205 for the night, single king bed. I couldn't find mid-range hotels, only $80 tread carefully types, or those trying to be $200+ fancy.
- There's a (Tomato something) restaurant next door (closed about 9 pm), & an Elmer's restaurant about a block away (closed about 10 pm).
- Think I saw a pool. Didn't go in or look around.
- DAILY Telemarketing calls at home since booked my stay there, 7 days/week, when prior I had NONE.
- I asked for a quiet room location when booked. When I arrived at the desk & asked again, without looking up or including any personality she said "It's quiet." That's it. Gee, thanks. It was at the end of the hall so I guess that's as good as they can do. There were stairs 10 feet away, people above & across, maybe next door, maids next door in the morning. Just don't count on quiet. Could hear quite a bit from upstairs...walking around, plumbing...the place isn't that solid. I asked for quiet & got a room on the 2nd floor of what I'm pretty sure is a 3 floor hotel...which is a location ideal for experiencing noise.
- No fan in the bathroom. So humidity lingers, odors also, & don't have a problem hearing your companies "business."
- Cheap college apartment type shower. Low shower head, semi-effective shower head, no sill to hold your soap, narrow tub, cheap looking.
- Toilet paper: Let's just say my body had repair work to do when I got home...but I did have to use sandpaper tp elsewhere that day so they don't get all the blame.
- Sink area: Tiny, esp for 2 people. 3 feet wide, 2 feet deep, sink takes up 2/3 to 3/4 of the space. No other counter space.
- 1/2" gap under front door & your sink is 2 feet way, your bathroom is about 4 feet away, your bed 5-6 feet way, so anybody in the hall is going to hear pretty much everything loud & clear. I could very clearly hear people's tvs & some conversations (No, I didn't pay attention : ) while in the hallway.
