This hotel is located 2 blocks from the shopping area and 2 blocks from the tram tracks so very central and good to get around (which this is easy to do in Portland).
As soon as we arrived we were upgraded to a suite which meant we had a separate seating area and more space to put all of our stuff which was very nice.
The hotel decor was very nice as was pretty accurate from the pictures on the website. Despite this being a suite, the bathroom was of a standard size with I think is what let Kimpton hotels down, they should offer more rooms with free standing showers.
All of the staff were very hospitable and knowledgeable and good to talk to at the 5-6pm complimentary wine hour. However, the only downside to this was that if the hotel was hosting a conference, then delegates from the conference also joined in at the wine hour which meant there was very little room and the noise levels high so a bit harder to enjoy / relax when you are on holiday. However, this did not stop us from having a good stay at this hotel and the Kimpton chain is still one I look out for when I visit any US city.
