I was here for 5 nights. Fortunately I was busy at a conference during the days so I didn't need to spend much time in the room. It was quite small and would have been difficult to do any work.
Check-in was fast and friendly and the lobby was small with some seating and movie posters all around. There's a bar and restaurant off the lobby - I had an appetizer and beer in the bar one night. That would rate 3 stars - slow service, got order wrong, food not hot, beer not cold.
Like many old, renovated downtown hotels the rooms are a tight squeeze but had some nice, elegant touches. The bathroom had a shower stall but no tub, and the small sink didn't have much room to spread out toiletries. There were cracks and stains in the fixtures suggesting they were older and getting worn out. Towels were fine and I ended up not using housekeeping - you can hang a tag on the door if you want to reuse towels and don't need the bed made. The shampoo and soaps lasted me all week so no worries. Supposedly good for the environment which seems to be important in Portland.
The bed and linens were comfortable and the flat-screen TV worked fine. I didn't have to use heat or air because the outdoor temperatures were mild. There are quite a few optional services if you happen to be there for R&R instead of business. The hotel website details all of these, although I couldn't wrap my mind around some of them ("pet spiritual menu"?).
This hotel is several blocks away from the bustling part of downtown which makes it quieter - less traffic. Seemed to be a safe area walking back and forth even at night. I would stay here again even though there are quite a few similar choices in the area.
