“Hip new hotel”
Reviewed October 26, 2008

Aloft PDX is a hip new hotel with great rooms and great amenities. Aloft is located just a short distance away from the airport and is located in a new shopping area. The Max stops about 100 yards from the hotel making it easy to get to and from Portland and the airport. The lobby is spacious with sitting areas, a cool little bar and a food area. The “front desk” is a little circle desk right as you walk in. I checked in at about 11am and check-in took about a minute or two. My “loft” was on the 4th floor facing the airport, so I had great view out of both windows of planes landing or taking off. The room design is much different than your typical hotel room. As soon as you walk in, the bathroom is located to the right (or left). They use modern furnishings. The vanity area had a small closet type area and a place for magazines and the coffee maker and safe. The toilet and shower can be closed off from the vanity. The walk-in shower is spacious with built in shampoo/body wash and a good shower head.

The wall separates the bed from the bathroom, making it loft like. The king size bed was extremely comfortable. The LG LCD TV was awesome and there were high-def and digital channels available. There is also a desk area to the left of the TV and a counter area to the right. They have connection box that can be used to hook up laptops or other electronic equipment to the TV.

There are several shops near the hotel as well as a few restaurants. The Portland IKEA store is right there as well. The hotel also has a small courtyard, an indoor pool and a gym. I would highly recommend this hotel if you need to stay near the airport. It is nice to stay in a room that is not your typical hotel room.

The aloft concept is fun and euro styled fun. The bar scene attracts the local crowd and happens most nights in the lobby. Rooms are small but stylish, seems like they tumbled out directly from the nearby Ikea store. The bed was great, large flat screen TV on the wall and trendy bathroom.
Easy parking for free and access to the Max sation right next store means you don't need a car to visit most of portlands sites.
The hotel is located in Cascade station, a area of big name store with some resturants, as the hotel does not have one. All that is within walking distance.
The staff is friendly, but not attentive, checkin was done with desk agents on the phone with friends. Here's the key and then back to their conversation.
All in all, for the price around $100, it's a good package.

Stayed at the aloft portland for one night in mid october. The property, although very close to the airport, was difficult to find. We called the property from the rental car lot and were put on hold for five minutes. We gave up and tried finding it ourselves.
40 minutes later (the hotel is about 2 miles from the airport) we pulled in. Its a nice new property. The bar scene was a lot more happening than I would have thought since the hotel was in the middle of nowhere but I guess the guests were thirsty. Another person was joining me later so I put her name on the hotel room so she could check in. I had called beforehand and asked if they had a shuttle. The front desk had replied that they did.
Turns out they do have a shuttle, but it needs to be called in order for it to come to the airport. Would have been handy if the front desk had mentioned that, no? They also forgot to put the additional name on the room, and when I returned to authorize it an hour later the same woman who checked me in had no idea who I was.
The room was nice, you can see from the photo that the planes come VERY close overhead but I didn't hear any noise. They also used nice heavy doors to seperate the room area from the bar are. No noise from there either. The beds were big and comfortable, and there was some innovative use of the space. I could have used a second sink instead of 5 feet of empty space but what are you going to do.
I'd stay again at a competitive price, but I dont think they provide the business traveller with the staff experience that some may need
