“Overall Very Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

We stayed at the Embassy Suites for its proximity to the airport. We are Hilton Honors members so check in was quick and easy. The room was fine but, as stated previously, the furniture was dated. Also, there were only two outlets between the beds so we had to unplug the clock to plug in our devices.

We ate breakfast at the hotel and it was great. Andrew does a great omelet. In the evenings, the bar tender was very hospitable. Without question, we would stay again.

We planned to stay here for two days while our hardwood floors were repaired. The staff was friendly upon arrival. The room I was assigned, however, smelled strongly of old cat urine. I found a circular spot in the carpet in the corner. I called downstairs and was told that the hotel was booked, so they couldn't move me. There was no operable window and I couldn't even find an A/C unit, although I am sure there was one.

I then went downstairs to the main desk to see if they could book us in another embassy hotel in Portland. The gentleman said that all of the hotels were booked for the night, but he could switch my room for me (not sure why the first woman said they couldn't - that does not reflect well on them).

He put me into another room without any fuss and was very nice about it. When I got into that room, it too smelled like old animal urine, but not as badly as the last place. My husband and I turned the a/c on and just decided to bear it.

By the time I woke up in the morning, I knew that I couldn't stand another night there, so my husband called to see if we could check out without incurring the fee. Because we were not happy with the room, the woman gladly waived the fee. She was also very nice about it when we came down to check out.

The room itself, minus the strong urine smell, was nice. The bed was pretty comfortable, the furniture was new, and even being by the elevator was not very loud. The bartender who served the late night dinners was very nice...

So, the staff and the facilities are great. The over-powering smell of animal urine is not so much.

I recommend that the hotel designate a floor as animal friendly and give guests the option to check into animal-free rooms. As an animal owner myself, I know that with cat urine, in particular, there is really no way to clean it.

Room Tip: Check your room for odors before checking in.

Needing to catch a plane leaving at 6am would have required that we leave our house at 3 AM! Also, hate to depend on a shuttle, but then there is leaving your car parked in extended parking. So, stayed over night and bought the Park and Fly option. Room very clean, in good repair. Of course a bit noisy earlier in the evening, but with my trusty ear plugs not a problem. I'm fussy about my bed and it was wonderful! Glad we chose this route. Good value!

Room Tip: One facing away from the road might cut down a bit on noise. But it's really not bad at all.

It was a great experience for the whole family. We always enjoy our stay here. We enjoy the breakfast and the kids enjoy the pool. We have stayed in Embassy Suites across the country and this one compares favorably with the others

A little more Expensive then what I am used to. But a beautiful place to stay. Clean and Comfortable, and the Breakfast mmmmmm. It is Close to many things. The only draw back is that the POOL and Spy was closed for repairs, and I so wanted a nice SWIM, maybe next time.

My husband and I always stay here (either together or separately - that's how much we like the property) if we have an early flight out. It is close to the airport, staff is friendly, and airport shuttle is on demand. It is a great park and fly location. The restaurant and room service are good and dependable.

They recently (I think) added a feature called "premium" - I upgraded for 20$ and it included wifi access and "credenza access" - the credenza on the 8th floor is stocked with non-alcoholic beverages (including red bull, juice, waters, etc) and snacks (chex mix, chips, fruit, candy, trail mix etc). I'm not sure if the upgrade was worth it for a single traveller but for a family or a couple the snacks/beverages may be worth it.

Unless I have errands that warrant a more expensive stay downtown, I usually stay here whenever I'm in Portland. It's convenient as it offers a shuttle to/from the airport. It's a good value with a buffet breakfast every morning. The buffet offers toast, pastries, yogurts, hot oatmeal, fruit, scrambled eggs, bacon and sausages, potatoes, juices and coffee. You can even get your eggs cooked to order. The only problem is that by the time you've made all the buffet stops, you're food is cold. My husband and I have tried all kinds of tricks but so far nothing seems to work. Perhaps if the plates were warmed. There is a small gym with treadmills and ellipticals and a pool next door. There are laundry facilities and a business center available too. It can get a little noisy on the weekends but it's usually quiet by bed time.
