“Back Again-our fourth stay!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We have enjoyed a luxury king suite and manor queen on past visits; this trip, due to my foot surgery, we opted for a California King Courtyard room, and it was delightful. The bed and linens were super-comfortable. We had a loveseat, coffee table, giant-screen TV with DVD player, refrigerator, microwave and Keurig coffee maker. The courtyard was well-landscaped and had four comfortable chairs plus a table and water feature. We enjoyed breakfast outdoors each day of our stay. Double French doors opened from the courtyard into our room and we often left them both open to enjoy the view and fresh air. (There don't seem to be flying bugs here.) Any requests we made were cheerfully and promptly addressed by the manager and maintenance/housekeeping. We loved having a grocery store within a 2-block distance; they had excellent deli food for dine-in or to-go, and a great selection of beers and wines. I also found Zettz massage just a block away and had a great experience there. The light rail was also a short hop and we enjoyed visiting downtown Portland dining and sightseeing.

Room Tip: Our room was C1-close to entrance and under the lobby. I haven't seen B-1, but A-1 is a lovely c...

Enjoyed our stay at The Orenco. Keith went above and beyond to accommodate my husband, who uses a scooter. Rooms are wonderful, very quiet and perfect location. Would definitely stay there again. Starbucks right around the corner. Excellent Grill on the next corner. Beautiful park close by.

I love staying at The Orenco. The rooms are large and clean and quiet. The location is great too. Great area for walking with lots of trees and flowers. This is my favorite place to stay when in Hillsboro.

I liked the hotel. I don't need employees to greet me and tell me where the door is. I can figure all those basic tasks out. I liked the brown stone feel and especially loved Starbucks was less than a minute walk away. Comfortable bed and pillows.

My wife and I love this unique brown stone hotel. We travel often and get tired of the big hotel chains, large lobbies for check-in and loud maid-services for nearby rooms early in the morning. This hotel much much different, hassle free and stress free. We felt we had our own, well-decorated apartment in New York City's upper west side (without the street noise). Good stuff! We even took a walk over to Starbuck's a block away then to a nice little public park located directly across the street from the hotel. Great hotel concept, for business or pleasure. We loved it and would stay there again, highly recommend.

First, the hotel. It does not look like a hotel, it looks like New York brownstones. If you cannot follow the email instructions and directions, you will be frustrated. If you HAVE to be catered to, greeted, personally checked in and bellboyed around, you have made the wrong choice. The Orenco is THE BEST blend between bed and breakfast...EVER! All of the comfort of a studio apartment in our case and none of the "lets all eat breakfast together at a set time" socializing. There is a snack/beverage/breakfast bar available 24/7. Only drawback..on street parking only.

Our room. The bed was soft and had a gel topper. The large windows opened and had screens. The deck/patio was large with two big comfy chairs and a sun screen. The towels were soft but there was only a smallish shower in the bath. The granite kitchen and full size appliances were extremely nice. The pots and pans for a "kitchen" were, unfortunately Good Will vintage...this should be addressed, although they did work. The dishware is lovely but there should be more than 2 full placesettings. The silverware should just flat out be replaced. These things were all workable but i expected a little more from this upscale facility. There are an abundance of beautiful, empty kitchen cabinets.... There is no individualized thermostatic control but a very nice heater is hidden away in one of those cabinets.

The area. Marvelous. Quiet. Loads of restaurants, markets, shopping, park to walk the doggie in, tree lined streets that are spotless and a lot of walkers. We were there for a surgical procedure that required two nights in Hillsboro for Precautions. This was an excellent place to recover and we were left blissfully alone.

Room Tip: If you want a tub in the room, be sure it states that it has one in the description.
