I was trying to find a downtown hotel that was inexpensive, and came across this one by chance for a great deal they had on back in June. We booked 2 rooms separately, and ended up paying less than 100USD per room. It was easy to get to the hotel from the airport by train (45 min ride and 5 min walk). The staffs at the front were really friendly. We arrived at the hotel right at 3pm. Only 1 room was available at the time during check-in because we want both rooms on the same floor. That works out fine for us since we planned to drop off our stuffs first and headed out right away. Our room was on the 16th floor (top floor) and it was rather quiet during our 2-night stay there. The other room was ready for us by the time we returned to the hotel at around 7 or 8pm.
Location-wise, it was convenient to get to the Chinese Garden. The hotel is located on the less-sketchy side of downtown. On Saturday night, a few blocks from the hotel (north) is like the "party zone" with LOTS of people on the street and police cars everywhere. Driving through there was a nightmare. Other than that, car rental locations are within a block or 2 (less than 5 min walk), so that was rather convenient. The walk to the Union Train Station (for Amtrak) was only 20 min as well for those who plan to arrive or leave Portland by train.
