I was looking for an interesting hotel in downtown Portland that could accommodate 5-6 people in one room... and a hotel with some personality.
This was it!!
The room was very comfortable. When I made the reservation, the lady asked if I would like to have a goldfish in the room. Well, Why not!!! In hindsight, the goldfish did not hold up his end of the conversation, but we certainly enjoyed his presence. The room did have personality as did all the public areas of the hotel. I esp liked the hotel dog, Timmy.
The staff kindly provided us with enough towels and accessories for the extra showers and hair washing that was to be done. They also cheerfully told us each day how to get to our first stop of the day -- and they must do this 100 times a day, but they were still cheerful.
Each morning we wandered down to great coffee, some days we stopped in our wandering for a midday ice cream and each night we again reconvened in the lobby for a glass of wine and some local specialty, like chocolate or cheese. We met a number of interesting people while in the large lounge -- all delightful.
We had a nice surprise when the hotel put a nice bottle of wine in our room, complimentary, to go with our celebration. This went nicely with the food we had just brought back from the local Whole Foods.
Our entire vacation was done on foot. Hence the hotel was in the perfect location. Thank you
