Our family of 4 stayed here for 5 nights in April 2013 over spring break. The kids loved that it was a block from Voodoo Donuts (OK, I did too), and it was conveniently close to a MAX light rail stop. I loved that it is all suites, and we had plenty of room for my husband and I in our own bedroom, plus our 8-yr-old on the hideabed and our 13-yr-old on a rollaway that they brought up for us. This was probably an extremely nice hotel in its day, but don't be fooled by Embassy Suites stereotyping... it is still nice, and different from other standard business hotels. It has this huge area where there is a free breakfast (complete with omelet bar, pancakes, waffles, cereal, bacon, sausage, etc) and a happy hour later. There is a game room tucked away behind that room which I think most people didn't know about, as we were usually alone in there (has arcade games, pool table, air hockey, and a TV). The boys loved the pool, and its 2 hot tubs. There aren't many downtown hotels with pools. There also aren't many family-friendly restaurants within walking distance to this hotel - exceptions include Old Town Pizza (great), and Rock Bottom Brewery (good, but a chain). You can walk downtown from here - we walked all the way to Jeld-Wen to see a Portland Timbers game, which was probably a couple of miles. We took the MAX to the zoo one day and that was very convenient. We took Amtrak to Portland from Seattle, and then a cab to the hotel, but we probably could have walked from the Amtrak station... it was a very short cab ride. Would stay here again.
