Oxford Suites Portland - Jantzen Beach
Ranked #22 of 146 Hotels in Portland
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 24, 2010

Oxford Suites at Jantzen Beach was a extremely clean hotel. The pool and hot tub area
were kept clean and the floor never felt "squishy" like we have experienced other places.
There is also a wet and dry sauna. The exercise room had all of the basic equipment you will know to use if you are experienced with exercise equipment.

Each morning the day started with the gentleman cooking us a free breakfast of fresh eggs/hashbrowns/breakfast meat/pancakes, waffles or fresh toast. There was also yogurt, applesauce, cottage cheese and fresh fruit along with all of the selections you find at a continental breakfast bar.

The evenings ended with the free manager's reception that had one featured item (such as chicken wings/chili & cornbread/meatballs/smokies/soup/etc), a large fresh vegetable platter, cheese & crackers, and two free drinks --wine, beer or soda.

We had a bedroom and a sitting room (with pull out sofa) that could be separated with pocket doors. On the same block at this hotel there is a Chevron station, Taco Bell,
Burger King and Safeway. You have a mini-refrigerator and microwave in your room.
This would be a great place for a family reunion!

We never met an unhappy staff member and everyone seemed to have a common goal -- to make our stay with them as pleasant as they can! We hated to get into their courtesy van to head to the airport at 5 am.....we didn't want to leave!

We took advantage of the Home for the Holidays rate during Christmastime. It was a bargain - especially for what it included. Free internet, free parking, free cooked-to-order breakfast, free evening reception. Indoor pool, gym, wet and dry sauna. The room had a fridge and micro. Cable TV and a dvd player. Very comfy indeed.

What made the trip was the staff, though. Everyone was so friendly and made sure our trip was just perfect. We're looking forward to going back again - soon.

If you're doing business in Vancouver or Portland this is a strategic location. Polite and helpful staff makes it a comfortable place to get back to after a long day of looking at properties. Suites with pocket doors separating the living and sleeping rooms were great. A couple of complementary glasses of wine in the evenings didn't hurt either.

The real problem for us was the lack of wifi bandwidth in the hotel. Everything's wireless and none of us could get Yahoo or Yelp to come up on our Browsers. In fact we could get better access by walking over to Best Western's parking lot and logging on to their routers. Oxford was good enough for email and Google searches but checking stocks was slow or none existent.
And trying to access restaurant reviews on Yelp was impossible.

At the end of the day the rates were good and it was a secure place to stay.

We were in town for a conference and got assigned to this hotel. We didn't know what to expect as it was our first stay for this hotel brand. Overall, for the price that we paid (much lower than we're used to paying) we got more than our money's worth; and for the conference location, it was an easy and convenient place to stay.
The staff are very courteous and accomodating. We booked for a specific type of suite, which we got and were very happy with--the "living" area could be closed from the sleeping area. Although the rooms could use a bit of update, they were very clean.
The great value came in all of the "freebies" that are included. Free parking, free internet, and best of all the free breakfast and evening reception. The food is excellent and the staff are great! We had some friends staying at the hotel next door and we were able to have them join us for just a few dollars per person.
Obviously, the staff were a big part of making our stay an enjoyable one.

My husband and I were in Portland for a wedding. Our son, the groom, and his fiancee live across the river in Vancouver, WA, so we needed a place that was close to both cities. Jantzen Beach is an island in the Columbia River, making it a convenient base for our trip.

Our Executive King Suite was clean and comfortable. Because we stayed for a week, we didn't want to live out of our suitcases, but drawer space was limited. The bathroom vanity and sink were in the bedroom area, separate from the bathroom - a nice plus. The living room could be closed off from the bedroom with pocket doors. The air conditioner and window are in the living room, though, so in warm weather you probably wouldn't want to close those doors.

Each room had a TV, although the picture quality on one was poor. Housekeeping staff members were quick to respond to our requests for more hangers and help with the TV. The hotel is on the flight path for Portland International Airport, so we kept the air conditioner on for white noise. We didn't use the heated indoor pool, hot tub, sauna, or fitness center, but our grandkids made good use of all three.

A hot breakfast is available everyday, along with the usual assortment of cold cereals. The breakfast room has an actual working kitchen, so my daughter-in-law was able to request scrambled egg whites, rather than settling for whatever was on the menu that day. During the week, drinks and appetizers are available in the same area. The appetizers were crudites and either meatballs or chicken wings when we stopped in.

From the hotel, we could walk through a residential area or along a paved path next to the Columbia River. There is a small playground (swings, slide, monkey bars) within 1/8 mile. A Safeway market is diagonally across the street -- very convenient. There are several reasonably priced restaurants (BJ's Restaurant Brewery, Stanford's, and Newport Bay being our favorites), and lots of stores including Target and Barnes & Noble, within 1/4 mile. We were 15 to 20 minutes by car from most Portland tourist sites. Just beware of rush hour traffic, particularly on Fridays or holiday weekends, when a 20-minute drive can take 1 hour. Vancouver, WA is just 5 minutes away. Parking at the hotel is free and plentiful.

We took our two twin toddlers on an overnight to Portland and I chose Oxford Suites because there was an indoor pool and free parking, which is hard to find downtown on a budget. We did not use the pool because it was too cold for little ones. Another reason for the choice was the picture they used of the carousel. I figured there must be some outdoor park (Jantzen Beach?), but the carousel is in the mall.

The worst part of the this hotel is that the carpets are extremely dirty. The bottoms of my toddlers socks were BLACK! See picture. This was just too gross for me and I would never recommend staying here based on this.

If you wear shower shoes, though, it is nice enough because of the breakfast and evening reception.

We loved this place. Close to major freeway; restaurants and grocery stores around the vicinity, all within walking distance. There is a manager's special providing drinks and food almost every night. Buffet breakfast, to! The room was clean. Bed comfortable. We thought the bathroom was too small but it was doable. Sofabed in room; Refridge and microwave. Staff very friendly and accomodating.
